Question about Philips 8P6034 TV

1 Answer

Distorted Pic A green haze over black areas and white areas. The white is more of a tannish color than white. I took the back off the tv and messed with the projectors a little bit only to notice the green and blue projectors, when looking into the face, look distorted. They look almost like the moon surface with a very distorted picture. The cheapest repair shop in my area charges $175 just to look at the big screen. Thanks for your help in advance!

Re: Distorted Pic

On these sets its the coolent in the tubes thats comtaminated, the picture tubes are soft and are bad, or theres a screen voltage capacitor thats bad in the scan power supply. If the tubes are going bad, a shop with a crt rejuvinator MAY be able to clean the tubes and bring a little more life to them, BUT if not, theres not much you can do as a consumer, as there are no user serviceable parts inside these sets, as all the parts are soldered into place and a TV set is no where to be expeimenting with. Sorry man if the sets over 8 to 10 years old ,its most likly time to put this one out to rest and get a new one. Good luck

Screen is the color blue?

That isn't convergence that does that. There are "screen" trimmers, if someone has messed them up you can get all one color, but the usual cause is the picture tube going bad. The screen trimmers are on the PC board on the gun (narrow) end of the CRT. Some trimmers are color drive and others are color black level, or "screen". Don't adjust the color drives, it is a delicate balancing act to get them right. Find the one labelled blue and turn it down. If all you can get is too dark, turn the red and green up, just enough to see a dim color haze in a blank picture. Balance them out so the haze is gray. Then turn them all down just a hair so the screen is just black. Then try a picture. If you can't get gray on a blank screen then go to the high voltage transformer (the one that can kill you if you touch the wrong part) and adjust the "screen" control on its side up (it adjusts all the colors together). If you still can't get gray, one or more of the color guns is weak, and you may as well chuck it.
Of course it could also be a bad blue drive transistor, but fixing that takes more expertise than you can get from a forum.
Actually, just getting the TV open and propped up so it doesn't fall over is a job in itself...

No pic, just a black screen w/white grid on it. How do I get picture back on it.

Sounds like they enabled some test mode of the TV. Can you activate the menu using the remote control and see if you can navigate to disable that? How about if you just unplug it from the wall for 60 seconds and plug back in and maybe it will reset.

DVD plugged into red, white and green(Yellow) TV imputs, results

Yeah no color coz its black and white. Color coding commonly yellow wire for video, red and white wire for audio. It should also be from DVD to TV, video out and audio out going to video in and audio in. And switch the TV to play video and the audio inputted. Maybe TV/Video Switch or button.

Hope it helps

TV lost some of the colors

quick simple solution that might fix it. Completely unplug the tv from the electricity for about 30 seconds. Some times especially during brown outs or black outs, the processor gets scrambled and needs to be reset. This 30 seconds of no electricity usually allows the system to reset it self correctly.

Color sudden change

Good day.
Your unit is still worth. It may be a caused of loose contacts along the circuitry. It can be remedied by resoldering the terminals particularly the chroma section and the crt circuit.

Black pic on tv turns green

normally this means the high voltage preamp green control transistor on the neck of the tube circuit board is loose solder connection from heat or is going bad.

My T.V. has no color red

If your TV is the type that has a picture tube,the picture tube itself could have gone bad. Also one of the picture tube driver circuits may have messed up. A number of things can cause this to happen. You'd need to take it to a shop and get an estimate for repairs. Hopefully you can find a shop that will give you a free estimate. Stargazer

Plasma TV color problem

Sometimes, poor picture quality occurs when having activated an A-VHS camera or camcorder connected and having connected another peripheral at the same time. In this case switch off one of the other peripherals. Also, The norcent has a known problem with progressive scan - when connected to a progressive scan source, it yields a distorted screen with dual images and messed up colors.
