Question about Philips 50P8341 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Bad color, faded out picture

We have had our TV for four years. We started having problems soon after we bought the TV. Had a repairman out to fix the problem. Helped for awhile. The picture has now gradually faded out and none of the adjustments do anything. We can not fix the problem. Also the whites are too bright and occassionally the faces have green splotches on them. The TV is way too big to transport and we are looking for a repairman that can come to our house to fix it. Can you help?

Hello emtzer, Typically, overtime your tv will become out of tune.
The way a display TV works is by shooting electromagnetic pluses through a vacuum guided by variations of magnetic stability.
What that means is overtime magnets tend to wear down thus resulting in a repairman call. Unless you are a expert in the field of tv repair i would also suggest for you to call them up and have them come fix it again. Although, though experiences and a budget, if you are able to upgrade to a LCD flatscreen I say do it. It will save money in electricity and the hassle of someone having to come fix your display.
Please post what you do and how you did it. I look forward to your posts.

The color on my Advent TV fades in and out of the picture, and goes to black and white Why


The problem is in the picture tube board circuit. Sometimes the CRT socket doesnt connect well to the CRT pins. Or maybe there have bad solders from RGB transistors. check those transistors, Also the bad thermistor discolored the entire tv screen.

Color fading, orangy red, video adjustments don't fix.


if it is a tube type unit you may not find a new tube they are almost extinct ,
also, most tube malfunctions are caused by improper voltage, only a qualified tech should work on the high voltage section of a tube tv,,, it can kill you even if it has Not Been Plugged in for a whole year

Sony lcd tv picture starting to fade


Hello oilreddye,

This sony (KV-36FS120) is a flat screen CRT type Television not LCD. However the problem you are describing sounds like a CRT problem. I posted this before and I hope it is helpful to you,

This may be a CRT problem. From what it sounds like i.e. dim picture, colors not bright. If you have a background in electronics I would tell you to check the voltage levels on the CRT pins and compare them to the values on a schematic, however if you do not have a background in electronics, I would suggest you taking the TV to your local TV repair shop and have them troubleshoot your problem.

Here is a possible list of things that might be wrong:

1) CRT going bad (The shop can try CRT rejuvenation if needed)
2) High Voltage on the anode not at proper levels (The shop can check this with a HV probe)
3) Video output levels low (The shop can check the voltage and signal levels on the CRT socket board, and on the video amplifiers).

These are the three primary possible issues.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Can you help me with my TV problem???


Sounds like your color wheel may be at fault. Do you ever hear any unusual noises coming from the rear of the TV? Color Wheels usually make a humming sound as they go bad. This is because the tiny bearings in the color wheel motor have begun to misshape from use and heat. Your TV may have a new type color wheel assy that has a slightly different configuration but the result is the same.

Color fades out on tv


I have the same tv and the same problem (color banding, incorrect colors, colors blinking) occured after I replaced the lamp. I had a tv repairman take a look at my unit and he said the color index was incorrect, the tv doesn't know the correct colors to display. The best way to fix that problem is to replace the "light engine". The repairman replaced the "light engine" to my tv and everything is working great. My tv was still until warrenty so I don't know how much a new "light engine" would have cost.

7 year old sony wega 32 inch


There are 3 components that control color, and it sounds like one of those are bad.
You will have to get it repaired.
I would talk to your local repair shop, and see what their estimate is, before deciding on repair or replacement.

FADING TO BLUE SCREEN


Sounds like you have a problem with the blue gun in your picture tube or its drive circuit. You might remove the back cover and gently tap on the neck of the picture tube using a plastic screwdriver handle while watching the screen in a mirrow. If the picture flashes back on or on and off then the picture tube is the problem. If this is a projection tv you have three separate tubes : red, green & blue. you'd need to tap the blut one.Gently!!!! Stargazer
