Question about Philips Magnavox 9P6034C 60" Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

Bad contrast and there is a high-pitched intermittent whine

My son says the front needs to be removed and the mirror and bulbs/tubes need to be dusted. I won't let him do it unless I know it might work. A bad picture is better than no picture--I can't afford to replace it

You son is right if TV has low contrast and brightness in picture.
It doesn't cost any thing and just needs cleaning of front screen and lenses with soft cotton cloth.

There are no tubes on a rear projection. 3 lights red blue green. One may be out, or in need of all 3. The entire projector can be accessed thru a few screws at the rear of the TV onve it is removed, bulbs can be cleaned, and you can access the cabint for cleaning.

    Lamp Replacement: This is the biggest detraction to rear projection televisions because lamp replacement can be expensive. A typical replacement lamp for DLP, LCD and LCoS costs at least $200. Most rear projection owners will have to replace a lamp every 3-5 years. Owners of CRT rear projection have an added disadvantage in that when one of the three guns (red, green, blue lamps) goes bad, it is recommended to replace all three to keep the colors balanced. Replacement of those lamps is even more expensive because a professional technician is likely needed to install and calibrate the lamps.

When The TV is running it makes a high pitched whinning that seems to be coming from the projector


its a bad color wheel and you may be able to replace it. You Tube has videos for this.
Look where the lamp faces and see if wheel missing segments or shattered.

The lamp light was on. Had sound but no picture. Theres a high pitch whining noise that comes on as the bulb tries to light. Bought a new bulb, put it in, closed the door but nothing changed.

High pitched whine/sometimes TV won't turn on


The power supply on this model will whine when it is shorted or overloaded - the set would have to be brought in to determine exact cause.

Exact problem, lamp comes on, no picture, lamp light flashes.


remove the lamp and with a light and or mirror look where the front of the lamp faces--there is a color wheel there--if it is shattered or damaged the set will not come on--most of these sets have a high pitched whine or grinding noise if this happens---the wheel is available on the internet and a moderate job to replace--I have seen lots of them bad---if you want an idea of what it looks like--etower.766@netzero.net Steve

RCA D52W19B makes high pitched buzz when on


Sounds like a coil is vibrating or a component is bad causing the transformer to whine. Could possibly just need soldering.

Picture is dark. I've consulted manual and tried suggestions


Is it dark even with the menu settings up high? Is it dark even in the menu settings? It could either be a dark signal input OR Dim light source. Depending on model, if it's LCD or DLP based, you probably need a new bulb. If it's CRT based, you can bring them back to life with a simple adjustment. If it's a CRT (depending on model) the adjustment is either on the back, or on the front behind the covers. There then will be a plastic adjusting screw. BE CAREFUL, there is high voltage back there. You want the TV on and with the menu settings of brightness and contrast all the way up for this part. With a second person there to help spot (if controls are on the back) bring the screen adjustment screw slowly up. Depending again on model, their might be one, their might be three that say screen. Adjust them up until a little brighter then desired but not past the horizontal retrace lines. Lot of information, but really it's an easy fix to get a few more years out of any tube tv that's worn and keep them out of the landfills.

No picture or auido.


Place your ear near the back of the tv and have someone turn the unit on. If the following occur :

a.) If you hear a high pitched whining sound and the fan trying to start but the unit fails to start and goes all quiet it could be a bulb issue. (see owners manual for trouble shooting code of blinking power light in front of tv)

b.) you hear nothing. It may be that the power supply for the unit has failed or its fail safe fuse has tripped. ( call tech this one needs a pro to sort out )

c.) seems like its trying to restart itself but does not quite make it. ( its a bulb issue check owners manual )

Bad picture


Have you taken the front screen off yet and cleaned the lens and mirrors? Dust and dirt, and specially nicotine gets on these surfaces and clouds up the picture really bad. If you clean the set and this does not help, you probably have bad picture tubes, and I would not invest in new tubes at this point, or there could be bad power supply capacitors. Good Luck
