Is it possible to fix a TV that hasd "lost" the red in it's color spectrum?

I seem to have lost the red on my TV color spectrum. Everything is either too blue or too yellow. Is it worth fixing? The TVs probably about 15 + years old.

    The red channel is dead. This could the red gun in the CRT (picture tube) or in the red drive circuit. It could be as simple as a bad solder joint or as serious as a bad CRT. There really is no way of knowing without troubleshooting it.

    Since it is over 15 years old, perhaps it's time to consider replacing it?

    Chances are you lost your red picture tube gun. Time for a new TV.
