One day one of my friends called me up and stated the problem as mentioned below:

purple color problem in crt tv

On his call I have visited his home while back to home from the work and I have turned ON the TV; getting exact symptom as stated. So first I have checked signal cables which come from Set top Box found ok. So now it is time for operation.

So I have opened the TV for further diagnosis and started visual inspection – till nothing found like physically damage or burnout parts. So I have started troubleshoot from the CRT Base PCB, with help of screwdriver handle I taped on the CRT base PCB & I have got positive sign of suspect, for a moment screen got clear image and turned back as it was purple.

That means there is some loose connection. So I have removed the CRT Base for inspection.

On visual inspection everything seems to be Ok on component side.

Finally I took out my magnifier glass to inspect on solder side of the PCB and I Have found lots of dry soldered points through my magnifier glass.

Now it is time to revive the solder joints on suspected area.

After Refreshing the solder I have attached the PCB on its location and power ON the TV and see the result. Yes problem solved.

For reconfirmation about fault I have again taped the area with help of the screwdriver handle I found this time it is firm.
