    Thanks! I suspected that and was afraid of being correct. Rather pricey parts, but think I saw them for around $175 each on one parts site. Thanks again Chris07551 !!

    ok the brand of your tv you can call buy phone and order parts and you can go on the net say if you tv is Toshiba go to www.Toshiba.com

    i really think the bulbs need replacing if the pic has done that there are three liquid filled bulbs inside roughly 250 dollars each and then you have to take the old ones out put the new ones in and adjust them it can be difficult

Philips 60PW9383 picture faded. Try to adjust, sharpness, contrast & brightness are all almost all of the way up, but the picture just looks weak & washed out.


Thats the classis sign that the CRT coolant needs replacement to restore the picture quality. You can get the Phillips CRT coolant kit from www.tvrepairworld.com which contains the coolant for the three CRTs plus the CD with instructions.

CONTRAST ADJUSTMENT


it is best to shut the color level to the lowest setting then try t balance the screens to achieve the best black and white picture. then turn up your color level. Your brightness level should also be set to 50 % then when you adjust for the best B&W picture. You will have better color and brightness when you reset your color and brightness levels.

I am further looking into ur problem..

Goodluck..

Color and brightnes fading


the most likely cause is the coolant needs to be replaced in the CRTs. Very common problem. You can get the Phillips CRT coolant kit at the following link which contains the coolant and step by step instructions. Its listed under the repair kit category.

Picture quality is bad


it sounds like your green gun is faulty or a faulty colour drive, a transistor on the back of your CRT board also check for dry solder joints.

Is the contrast setting normal? You tube 'may' be fading, but not yet failed. A licensed pro should help you decide whether a replacement is in order or not.

1998 Mitsubishi vs-60601 picture is dull and not as vibrant as it should be


the first thing I would do is to clean the lenses of the CRTs they may be coated with dust that will dim the picture. other than that the CRTs may be failing since the phospher of CRTs fade in brightness over time and the only solution is to replace all three CRTs. the CRTs I have discovered are no longer availible.

Mitsubishi VS-6041- picture brightness not very bright


Hi Dawn,
The TV does have a screen control on each of the picture tubes ( there are 3 ) although I do suggest you have a qualified technician make the necessary adjustments as an improper adjustment can cause damage to the set. Should you deside to make these adjustments yourself, you'll need to remove the back ( or front in some sets) ( PRE-CAUTION, UNPLUG THE SET FROM THE WALL BEFORE PREFORMING ANY ADJUSTMENTS INSIDE THE SET ) The screen adjustments are located either on the bottom of each tube or in a group component located where the main High Voltage Wire ( large red wire from the black transformer on the deflection board ) is connected to. Look for a turn pot ( screw type adjustment ) that is marked SCREEN. When you locate it ( whether it be on each tube or in the group component ) turn it up only slightly and not to much, as excessive gain ( turning it up to much ) may cause the TV to shut down. When you have the proper brightness ( when it looks good to you ) close the set up and enjoy the renewed picture. Good luck and I do hope this has helped in some way

PICTURE DARK


I had the same problem soI decided to go ask at our local tv shop Panasonic warranty place and he was nice enough to tell me the problem . So for everyone reading .. these had a defect with some of the disc capacitors they used on the CRT board it as 2 on there . The second problem is with the ``YC`` chip . panasonic sets have many unusuall malfunctions caused by this chip such as a black & white picture or brightness problems . unfortunatly my set has a bad chip . There we all learned something today . he invites you to contact a Panasonic ``rep`` he will tell you the same thing .
