You can also check to see if you have bad fluid problems, by looking down in your crt's with a flashlight when you unplug your set and see if you can notice any particles that should not be there. Look at all three and see if there is a difference. It should be clear, if not then you need to change fluid and clean.
It sounds as if one of the picture elements (there are probably 3 for R-red G-green B-blue) has gone bad and it is most likely the green one. Sad to say it will probably cost you more to have it fixed than it would to buy a new TV. Most places will not even look at a TV for less than $85 or so, then they will add parts and labor... if they can even find parts.

SOURCE: 60" Philips Magnavox Projection TV Red Screen

I bought a crappy old magnavox and rebuilt it. I had both of these issues.
Since your tv is old, the blur problem is probably caused by old coolant in one or more of the CRT lens couplers. Hopefully, the lenses are simply out of alignment, but no one has ever worked on the tv, then this is unlikely.


First, unscrew the back panel of the tv console (should be a bunch of 1/4" hex head screws). There will then be a large white panel at a 45 degree angle held in place by two tabs or maybe even screws. Remove it to see the CRTs. A quick check for the blurry problem is to look directly into the CRTs while the tv is off. DO NOT do it while they are on if you can help it, as it is not good for your eyes.
Shine a white LED flashlight down into each of the CRT's top lenses. Avoid classic incandescent light in this case, since you will be looking for the difference between white and yellow. I you see a white plate inside, good. If the inside looks yellow, and has floating things in it, then the coolant fluid inside is old and bad. You can replace this, but it is a VERY delicate task and MUST be done in certain steps to avoid ruining the electronic boards anywhere within splash zone or drip reach of the lens couplers. The coolant is a special blend available at most tv repair shops, but it's basically clear antifreeze (which you wont likely find in an automotive store).

For the color being off, it is most likely the gain on each CRT being out of whack. First, change all of the user settings (in the on screen menu) for image, color, sharpness, etc to the middle or default.
With the back panel off, somewhere near the bottom of the inside there will be a small black plastic box with wires coming out the sides. This box should have 6 knobs on the front of it (the face facing the rear of the tv); 2 rows of red, green, and blue knobs. These are the screen controls for FOCUS and GAIN. And they should already have some sort of label telling you so.
I placed a mirror in front of my tv so I could see the screen as I adjusted, but you might be able to see it somewhat by hanging a sheet over the front of the screen and looking at it from the inside.
There's a much more in depth method to do this that is described in the service manual (which you are likely to have seen by now; they are usually either stapled to the back of the tv or hanging somewhere inside and easy to see)
But basically, just turn the knobs gently around until the picture looks about right to you. (Remember, if you turn them all up super bright, the CRT will not last very long. Try to keep the knobs near the middle of their turn ability)


If you want to do a full out overhaul of the screen, you'll have to make a lot of adjustments with a bunch of little knobs (variable resistors, really) on the computer board inside. The service manual will tell you what each one corresponds to, but most of them will have a subtle label on the board.

Not a fix, but it got my tv on.
I removed the back and tried the power switch.
I located the relay that was clicking.
I have two blue relays in the middle of my power board.
I placed a hair dryer over the relay for a few minutes.
After four tries of the power switch and it stays on!!!!!
Heat keeps the relay from just clicking off.
I don't know why.
This will at least get the tv on though.

Need to find out a part # for my philips 52PFL7403/f7 for the ir sensor


Join Date: Nov 2011 I have a Philips 47PFL3603D/F7 with the same problem. It was the IR sensor board causing the problem. You can search online to find the board, which almost everyone will most likely not have in stock, and cant be ordered. The part you need is this: 313926859181 IR Remote Sensor.

Models it will fit are as follows: Substitute Parts 313926859182

If you can find the board, great! A replacement board costs about $12.00. If you can't... we'll there is something you can try ; )

Either way, if you know it's the board, what's the harm in trying?

Remove the back from the TV. You can actually leave it on your stand to do this if you can spin it around to gain access to the back of it. Be sure to unplug everything first!!!

Looking at the back of the tv, the board will be located in the lower left side by the speaker. It will have 2 cables attached to it. Remove them, and take out the screw or two that holds it in place. There will be a plastic tab that keeps it in place also.

Take your fingernail and bend the tab back, and the board should come free. After that you should be holding the board in your hands. The side of the board with the connectors on it is the side you want to manipulate. There will be a tiny surface mounted capacitor beside one of the wire connection sockets. Take a utility knife and scrape it off/ you could use a soldering iron but it should come off very easy with a knife.

Plug it back in, and give it a try! If it works... great! If not, find a replacement board, and try that.

Hope it helps someone!!!! quote.gif

Half the screen has gone black


Ok first lets start with the half screen and no lit screen . Samsung plasma panels (S42AX-YD01) HD V4. are really bad about the Y-board (upper,lower) buffers are really bad about getting hot and burining up. If u remove the back cover of TV u will see on the left side the Y-board (it will be marked in small letters) if u look and the rows of IC's with heatsinks on the buffers will be a dark yellow. Majority of the time if u remove the buffers. and look underneath them u will see the solder has melted from the board. U can replace the Y-board and buffers and the TV will work fine.
Next part if u have vertical lines in the panel. There is not much u can do as a repair. Only thing u can do is get panel replaced. because there is and IC that is burned up on the panel, and trust me there isn't anything u can do to fix it. If u want to see for yourself. After removing the back cover, remove SSB, and brackets holding PDP in place. at the bottom of TV there is a row of buffers marked E,F,G, ( i think) there is a long heat sink covering the IC's at the bottom connected to the bottom of PDP. As u can see without a $70k machine to change this there is not much u can do with it. Hope this helps.
