Question about Philips 27PT5445 27" TV

1 Answer

Picture slants right to left

On my TV, the picture slants slightly from right to left. This is only really noticeable watching programs where caption bars or crawlers appear at the top or bottom of the screen, such as CNN, ESPN or watching Football with the info bar on the screen showing the score, time remaining etc. For a caption bar on the bottom of the screen, on the right hand side it looks fine, but on the left hand side, the bottom part of the bar is invisible. Is it possible to fix / adjust this?

Re: Picture slants right to left

Hope you have fixed this problem by now, if that tv is unserviced, I mean if nobody has ever opened it, it could be a problem with the positioning of your tv, just tilt the tv in different positions and find out the position in which it will show the right fit. If it is serviced, especially yoke is changed, this is rare, it could be because the position of yoke is not aligned properly.

My TV has a black square in the middle of the picture. How do I fix that?


Your screen is showing a black picture because the closed caption function has been activated. When this closed caption mode is turned on the screen will display an 80% black picture.

To turn off the closed caption and regain a full screen please follow these steps;

1) Press the Menu button

2) Use the up and down arrows to navigate to Closed Caption

3) Use the right or left arrows to select it.

4) Use the right or left arrows to select OFF

5) Use the up or down arrows to select Finish

6) Use the right or left arrows to save the settings and exit.

You should have your full screen back now minus the annoying black box.

Thanks for using FixYa. A rating is appreciated if the solution has worked for you.

Tilted picture

You must be placing the TV near something Magnetic, Speakers, etc. This would account for the green in the corners. The tilted picture is most likely the yoke in the set has moved during rough handling. The first issue can be fixed with a degausssing coil, the second requires a technician to manually realign the yoke assebly and perform a convergence on the set.

Picture Tube Failing

I t sound like the De-gauss circuit has failed.
De-gauss demagnetizes the TV tube so you dont get what youre seeing.
It could be something as simple as a solder joint on one of the parts in that circuit. I fixed my Panasonic that way

Tv picture

The adjustment is done by opening the TV back cover, the part that looks like a cone(YOKE) that is mounted at the back of the picture tube needs to be slightly rotate it. To do this you will need to loose the screw that is holding that part and rotate it left or right.
Before doing this, unplug the TV from the main AC power.
Hope this helps.

Slanting Picture

The yoke has probably come loose and tilted.. From the rear of the set looking on the back of the crt you'll find a copper wire wound magnet called the yoke. It terminates on the neck of the yoke with a clamp. With the set off slightly loosen the clamp and turn the yoke assembly in the opposite direction - key word here is slightly - and apply power to check the alignment.
Keep doing this until you achieve the alignment you want. And always remember to unplug the set between attempts.

Slanted picture!!

This problem might be caused by an external magnetic field. Most modern Sony tv sets have a picture rotation control. Go to the setup menu and select Picture Rotation. Your user guide will explain.

Slanted picture

Your deflection yoke (a coil around the neck of the picture tube) must have gotten turned. Your can turn the picture upside down by rotating this coil. If your set is in warranty, you should return it. When this "yoke" is adjusted the color is affected too. If you try this yourself you'd void the warranty and mess up your color. Stargazer
