My picture will sometimes be real red and fuzzy around the outsides, sometimes it will split screen and be fuzzy. Sometimes I can turn it off and on and it will be fine other times it will continue to be bad. Its like the picture is going out. Any help?

Re: model 9p6034c102 picture going out
If you have no sound or video or if your screen keeps shrinking and expanding its typicaly the opto chip. You can get the chip and repair instructions from www.magnavoxhelp.com . This is a fairly common problem.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems oulined below.
Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
Screen looks 3D
Colors don't line up
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed or warped.
No Audio/Video - TV Makes Chirping Sound
Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.
Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.
You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.
If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.
Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy
Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.
Can you post a picture of the screen as the TV is playing, this way I can see if the picture is fuzzy, or if the images are split, all of which classify as not a clear picture. A picture of the screen will help with the diagnosis.
The repair shop will charge around 400.00 however you can do the repair yourself real easy just go to this link and click on contact button and leave your model number by email and they will tell you the correct ic to get and if you get it from there they will also give you free installation instructions as well as free online support http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
Its a slight possibility that a 2.00 Part called a capacitor could be bad on the screen drive voltage source. But most likly it sounds like the Picture tubes are comming to the end of there life expectancy. If the crts are weak there is a crt rejuvinator that could possibly clean the grids off each color gun. But this is a crap shoot, as sometimes it destroys the tubes. These type of repairs are not for the handi-man or a consumer to do. There are no real user replaceable parts inside so unless your able to solder and know the HI Voltage saftey issues, you should call a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck
