WS-55511 lost all green color

I recently resurrected my WS-55511 from the green light of death by replacing the convergence IC and the 7 capacitors. The unit has been working great for about a month but suddenly last night could not get green color in any picture sources. I have a Roku streaming device and both movies we watched last night were heavy on blue and red. This morning's football games are being played on blue turf. Again, anything that tends to the red and blue looks fine. Doesn't seem to be a convergence issue since there is no color splitting taking place. Any ideas?

Check your connections to the set. Also, check the connections from the main board to the CRT. It is easy to damage the connectors or the solder connections at the connectors on some of these sets.




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Checked connections right after posting and found green component video plug to DTV connector had come loose. Re-seated it and my green signal came back.
