The electrons, (after 4 - 5 years of, most likely, heavy use), are being impeded by impurities on the green gun's cathode.

That better? Wink

haha, Well i think the CRT tester costs more than the TV. Honestly i was hoping that there was something that i could just adjust or a part i could replace. Can i just replace the green gun?
Thanks for the response

Best to replace whole gun assembly. You'll need one of these:

You don't even know (for sure) if it even IS the CRT.

If it took a period of "month to years" to get green = CRT is most likely cause.
If it took a period of "hours to days" to turn green = then it could be some other component(s) that failed.
