Here is a walk through on how to set your convergence.
A quick and easy way to try and let the TV realign the convergence try this...
1) Turn on the TV and tune to a channel and let it warm up for about a half an hour to let everything settle into its normal operating mode.
2) Press the Flash Focus button on the original TV remote. A cross pattern will show on the screen and the process is complete when the cross turns white and the TV returns to the program you were watching.
3) Do not press any other buttons until this process has completed.
If this does not adjust it enough you can adjust the convergence manually as follows:
1) Press the menu button on the original TV remote.
2) Use the arrow keys on the remote to highlight setup and press + button to select.
3) Use arrow keys to select convergence and press + button to select.
4) A pattern of white crosses appears, with a yellow [ ] around one of the crosses. Aligned crosses (which do not need adjustment) look white and have little or no red or blue showing. Crosses that are not aligned show red or blue shades beyond their edges.
5) Use the arrow keys to move the [ ] to a cross that is not aligned. ***Note: start with crosses in the middle and work outward **** *** TIP: Set the alignment while about 5 feet from TV for better results ****
6) Press the + button to select the cross and the [ ] will turn red indicating it is ready to adjust the Red convergence.
7) Use the arrow keys to move the red cross on top of the white one or at least as close as you can get it.
8) Once the Red is aligned press the + key again and the [ ] will turn blue. This indicates it is now ready to adjust the blue convergence.
9) Use the arrow keys to move the blue cross on top of the white one or at least as close as you can get it.
10) Once you have aligned the blue cross press the + button again and the [ ] should turn yellow.
11) Repeat steps 5 through 10 until all the crosses are aligned. To exit back to regular programming press the menu button on the remote.
It sounds like a convergence problem---go into the customer menu and select convergence---set should offer center and multipoint adjustment--in the multipoint look to see if the outer crosses adjust--if red or blue will not adjust somewhere--bad convergence IC's.
I'm not quite sure about the convergence issue, but the glowing white haze is a sign that the fluid in the color tubes is dirty and usually can only be fixed if the fluids are changed out(draining and refilling). This is not recommended for someone who does not know what they are doing, it is best to get an expert to do this work because it can be dangerous as well as hazardous to your television and quite expensive. Mostly all rear projection televisions will have this issue, but I find that just upgrading to a newer-model television is usually better, maybe a flat panel LCD(Liquid Crystal Display)(stay away from unknown brands and plasmas, although Vizio's LCDs will get you more bang for your buck). On an LCD, all you really have to worry about is cracking the liquid-crystal display, which is quite fragile, but can be avoided if no hands or objects touch the LCD. On the other hand, best of luck in fixing your Philips rear-projection.
bad convergence would cause show to look as if it was supposed to be a 3-d movie, if a bulb was going out then people would look purple blue -green,or some other off color, so likely the green bulb is going out from the color of the people you described.
Does the blue and red crosses move at all ... eather vertically or horizontally. if they move at all then it may not be the chips.. could be a resistor. if the crosses dont move then it probally the ic. these chips run about 7 to 45 dollars apeace depending on type. at our shop we charge around 125 to put in.
In the multi-point adjustment grid use the exit/status button on the remote to lock onto the cross-hair that you want to adjust and again exit/status button to continue back to moving the cross-hair around to another location.
