When the television is turned on, a bright green color is all over the screen with a sort of rainbow shaped line that moves up and down. This goes on for about 10 seconds and then the screen goes black. Any idea what could be causing this and how much it will cost to fix?

Hi my name is Eric,
I can help you with your issue ,
This philips TV could have a number off issues, fluid leaking from a CRT,
or the SSB or SSM boards are bad.
I tech will charge you over $350 to replace a board.
There are color adjusters in the back inside the TV , red blue green screen controls, it wouldn't solve your issue , but lowering on may make it watchable for now

I will reply asap
Try balancing the tubes out, turn your color all the way down and the brightness in the middle, then find the focus block, it will be a block with 6 controls one row will say screen the other will say focus near the picture tubes, adjust the screen controls(one control for each color) until the picture has a good black and white look to it, then turn your color up and it should look fine. This is how i balance out the picture. But there is another method that allot of techs use, the other method is to adjust the brightness up until you see what is called retrace lines it is a jagged line going down the screen, once you see these lines back the adjustment down just until they disappear. Do this for all three colors. This method works but on an older set can throw the white balance off because of tube wear.
your convergence IC;s are out, they cost about $40, if you know how to solder, you can do it your self, if not , I would try to find somone that can, service centers charge about 4 or 5 hundred, after you get the new ones, there easy to find on the board in the back of the tv
