Philips 28PW6515-05 flat screen TV

Hello, I have a Philips 28PW6515-05 flat screen TV. For sometime it had two colour related problems. 1. Until few days back it used to start fine but after running for about half-an-hour a fluctuating pinkish tint used to appear on the screen. Tapping of chassis appeared to reproduce and fluctuate this effect. The tint used to vanish when the TV is turned off for about 10 or so minutes. One day I did not turned the TV off and the picture turned pinkish, then greenish before finally covering the screen permanently with pinkish purple colour with thin horizontal zigzag strips (from top to bottom). Strips moves only slightly. Screen selection button appear to change screen dimensions (wide screen etc.) but channel change etc. appear to make no difference. I even tapped all circuit board (with plastic rod and tv ON) but no effect on this purplish/ pinkish screen. There is no sound either. I have looked on all circuit boards, every thing appear fine and all solders looks healthy. Any clue if it recoverable and how? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

You have a bad connection on the CRT board thats mounted on the end of the picture tube it sounds like, or the socket on that board that plugs into the TV set is intermittant or has a bad solder connection on it. Good Luck

My Daewoo TV just went to all purple and green

Do you have speakers near the screen like stereo speakers ? if so move them away see if that helps , you will need to shut off tv for a while once speakers are moved , if that dosent fix it , u may need to adjust the 3 nobs which are behind the tv, you will need to remove the back of the tv cover , please remember safety , the should be 3 knobs which u can turn , one is for blue ,green , and red , adjust these until the screen is normal again, magnet's are the biggest cause of this problem , as a last resort for home fix it , u can sometimes use a magnet on the front of the screen to shift the colours around , i have used this method a few times and its worked ! , but its not reccomended and i suggest u do this after all else fails ,

Hitachi C28WF532N problem with picture

Good day!!!

That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board..

Just follow this instruction to fix your TV..

1. Open the back cover of your TV.
2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter

Toshiba TV colours wrong pink sky, blue clouds and green people??

Inside your TV there is like a loop of insulated wirings the loop around the screen. This is to demagnetized the tube. There is a varistor which looks like a thick coin with two leads on it, or sometimes it looks like a flat ceramic capacitor that control this loop of wire. When you first turn on your TV current goes through the loop of wires to demagnetize the TV then the varistor shuts off. Sometimes this varistor fails, causing smeard colors. You can also demagnetize the screen without opening the TV. Using a hand held demagnetizer. It can be purchased at some electronic parts store.

Philips 34pw9818 fuzzy screen

Inside the set you should see a large part with a red wire coming out the top. That is the flyback transformer. There will be 1 or 2 controls on the back of it. One should be labeled screen and one focus. Carefully adjust the focus one until the picture is again in focus. Please note that in that area are high voltages (33,000V) that can be dangerous. Be careful where you touch. IT is best to have a mirror so you can see the picture while adjusting the focus control.

Televison probs

Most tv's degauss themselves when turned on so turning off and on a few times might help. Leave about 15 minutes between on off cycles and keep on trying untill you see improvement. You could also get hold of an old tape eraser, plug that into the mains and starting from a foot or so away try to brush the badly coloured parts away without coming to close to the screen.

Sony kv-32hv600 picture problems

Problem 1. Color patches at lower corners. These are caused by magnetic sources close to the TV. Do you have any Speakers close to the sides of the TV? Are they Magnetically sheilded? No? Move them away from the TV. Problem should then resolve itself in a couple of days. Problem2. Screen Slumping. Most likely a problem with the Pin cushion correction ckts. Get a good technician to have look. cost should not be much. Under 100$ plus Technician fees.
