Phillips Big Screen Older Model

Our Tv was moved and when it finally got to our new house, the picture is all green. I have tried all the menu buttons and looking to see where I can go next. I even took off the screen and cleaned everything in side thinking maybe the blue and red was dirty. NO luck......Someone said i need fluid but they only said that didn't look at the TV ...what does that mean..

Re: Phillips Big Screen Older Model

It means the fluid that cools each picture tube is low in the green but where did the fluid go,remove the back cover and check for a fluid leak towards the front side of the chassis and if any it should be right below one of the picture tubes.The description of your problem tell us you have a rear projection set but the heading shows a direct view tv.?????????? Since it was move the leak is only a possibility there could be other reason.Be careful and be sure set is unplug.

Our Phillips Protjection TV model: 55P9161, picture is very dark, and fuzzy. There are tones of Greens and ghosting. We have followed convergance, and the other tips on the Phillips site but nothing has...

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

27 inch Zenith TV Vertical too big

If you are using a DTV coverter box, you may have changed the aspect ratio with your remote control. look for a button marked "aspect" or "picture size" use that to change size.
If you have a cable box, you may have a similar button.
Or you may find a picture size adjustment on your TV remote.
If you do not have "aspect" button on your remote try going to set up menu and look for picture size.
Older TVs used to have a vertical size adjustment at the back. look in the manual.
If none of the above, you have a biiger problem with the TV internal parts needing attention

Magnavox big screen has dull picture and colors are not clear. Cloudy picture and has a green film of color over screen. this ia a 64inch big screen. What can

This is especially common with Phillips/Magnavox - A foggy image usually suggests that the coolant in the picture tube(s) (1or all 3) has become discolored and needs to be replaced. The only way to check this is to look directly into the crt faces (disassembly required) to see the condition of the fluid (coolant).
It's a relatively big job that shops charge between $300-400 - Get an estimate. See link for Kit

Horizonal and vertical off.

My picture is too big for my screen also, I have a 27 inch screen and I can't see the scrolling tickers on the bottom and the baseball score readout on the top. When I turn the tv on, the heads are huge on the top and that finally comes into proportion, but it goes too far. I can't find a horozontal or vertical control in the manual or on the tv menu. What can I do?
