Question about Philips 9P6031C 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Picture My tv is 5 yrs. old. the colors appear to be bright and neon like. the red is neon orange, the blue is turquoise. no matter how i adjust the picture or convergence nothing helps. ive got the bright set in the middle, if i move it lower, then the picture is too dark to see. as of now the picture is too bright and colors are not right. also, i believe, just around title(lettering) there is shadowing-white fuzzy shadow. an aquaintance in the business said it might be a 30$ chip.-what is this? thanks in advance!

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

Picture has red tint

I would unplug it from the wall for a while and see if that will help reset it. Also make sure there are no magnetic devices near the screen because this will change the screen color as well. Mine will mess up every once in a while so I just unplug it while I am off running errands, plug it back up when I come home and it seems to reset itself. Good luck

51'' Philips rear projection TV with color issues

Philips has had a big problem with there coolant fluid becoming cloudy. The only way to clear it up is to have the fluid changed. With every projection crt tv there is a layer of cooling fluid between the face of the crt and the lens. This coolant cools the face of the crt. Over time the coolant breaks down and the light coming through gets distorted. The crt's have to be removed from the set to do this.

Whites are real bright and has an orange color

Hi my name is Eric,
I can help you with your issue ,
 This philips TV could have a number off issues, fluid leaking from a CRT,
or the SSB or SSM boards are bad.
I tech will charge you over $350 to replace a board.
There are color adjusters in the back inside the TV , red blue green screen controls, it wouldn't solve your issue , but lowering on may make it watchable for now
If I have helped you with your issue please click accept.
If you have more questions you can still respond
I will reply asap

Double picture and colors are neon green and pink

Your TV most likely has fone of two possible problems.

Problem #1 - Failure in the convergence circuits. ( 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.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

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 will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, 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.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed. Notice how dull the colors are and how white the screen looks. The screen may also look red, orange, dull, etc.


TV set after fluid change. Notice how bright the colors are now. Everthing looks crisp and sharp again.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Brightness and volume

The dark picture is a bad capacitor for the screen or drive voltage for the picture tube driver transistors. The other problem of streaking is one of the same. Thats the indication that a capacitors defective . It could in a rare cas ebe a defective or gassy crt as well but 99% of the time when a crt is said to be gassy its nothing more then poor drive to the crt. Good luck
