Question about Philips Magnavox 20MS3442 20" TV

# Sides of screen greenish

My cat recently caused my tv to fall 5 feet to the ground, ever since on the sides of the screen, it has been green. Fixable? or should I just cut my losses and get a new one? Thanks

Sorry to tell you, most likly when the set fell, it caused a screen inside the set called a shadow mask to shift and the only way to fix would be to replace the picture tube. you could try unplugging the set overnight then replug back in but its unlikly that will help but always worth a try.

### My Mitsubishi TV Model WT-46809 has the picture turn greenish pink after the TV has been on for a little while. What is the possible cause?

These sets did have one common issue where red, green, or blue would do what you are describing.

The set has 3 picture tubes and each has a small circuit board plugged to the bottom of it (bottom of the tubes faces down) and a ground would break loose or a part do the same.

I would examine the picture (see if you can take one and post it somewhere for me to see---picture will tell me a lot).

The ones with the ground broken usually show it more on the sides then in the middle of the screen.

Let me know all you can.

I am a top expert on this site.

Hi,
It could be possible that your monitor is not degaussing the screen when you turn it on. Try turning your monitor on and off a few times to degauss the screen. If this does not work, you most likely need a new degaussing coil which is a cheap part and can be bought at any TV spares retailer

### Have enjoyed my KD-34XS955 for the past 5 years.

Maybe the degaussing coil is moved backward from the picture tube.

The set is probably magnetized and needs degaussing (demagnetizing).
All CRT type TV's have an internal demagnetizing circuit that is engaged when the set is first turned on after being off for the day.
If this circuit is working then you sometimes hear a "bonk" sound (about 1/2 a second long) when the set is first turned on. If this circuit isn't working the set will become magnetized over time and will have to be degaussed using a degauss coil available at a TV repair shop (cost aprox. \$35.00) and you should have the circuit checked at the same time. A set will also become magnetized if a large speaker (magnet) or motor is close to the TV. Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

### Samsung flat screen wide

you need to move your speakers away from the tv. turn the tv off and on about 10 times. it has a degauser built into the tv it will take the green out. also a vacume cleaner can cause this to happen. as long as it is a tube type tv.

### Greenish yellowish tint on the tv

I have been advised that the color/light engine of the TV fails often and will typically create a green tint on this unit. I have one on order to get a replacement installed. BTW, it is not "user serviceable" and (for me) will require moving the TV to the repair shop for the change-out.
