Question about Philips 60P8241 60" Rear Projection Television
Well I plug in my television and turn on the power button, I hear the power relay turn on and the power indicator light turns on too. I just cant hear any audio and only a horoizontal thin line runs across the screen, either on the top or the bottom of the screen,but just for a micro second, more like a flash. other times I can sort of make out like 4 inch lines across the sceen but the lines don't run all the way through mostly like a bad dirty video trying to play. very dim video so i cant see it unless its dark or a blanket is thrown over the screen.remember no audio either and I cant tell what channel it's in either.

The green dot in the center sounds like a burn mark on one or more of the picture tubes inside the set, and the curved lines are telling me that you have a problem in the convergence circuits. The blue haze around everything white tells me you either have a lot of dust build up on the lens over the CRTs, or your picture tube(s) are very weak. If this set is over about 12 years old, I would replace it. I doubt if you will be able to get the green dot out of the picture without changing the tubes which would be VERY expensive.

I fixed this very problem several times on this set. You must check some parts and, if bad, replace them correctly and safely. I can tell you what to look for for a small cash fee, but I don't know how this works on this site.

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.
Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.
You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.
If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

The coolant in between the CRT face and the focus lens has probably become discolored and would need to be drained, cleaned and refilled. The green CRT is the center one and it would have to be romoved in order to refill it.
