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.

High Pitched Whine


A high pitched whine like that indicates a bad bearing. Water pump, power steering pump, accessory belt slipping, alternator bearing, or in the worst case scenerio, Transmission pump.

Distorted loud static sound consistantly on phonak unit one year old


Ensure the acoustic tubes are not obstructed. Detach them from the hard plastic flesh coloured part and clean them in warm soapy water, rinse and dry/allow to dry. Reassemble.
There is a possibility that this might be caused by the gain of internal amplifier being set too high, though this usually results in a constant or intermittent high pitched whine. Try adjusting the recessed wheel on the unit.
If neither of these measures cures the fault, you will need to take it to a technician, return to the supplier/manufacturer, or/and replace the unit

Could be your alternator or a bad idler pulley. Is the transmission good? It may be the tranny or your differential whining.

Continued battery drain and high pitched noise when car started


Maybe the alternator is bad. A high pitched whine could mean that the alternator is not working properly.

One can test, by removing the belt to the alternator and running the engine and seeing if the whine goes away.

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

High pitched buzz/whine during wash cycle only, spin fine


1) Make sure valve is open all the way 2) some machines have a screen inside of the hose hook up which could be clogged. 3) last check to see if it is the hot or cold by switch your selector switch on your machine to hot then cold. If one of these positions eliminate the noise then the valve in the machine is bad.

High pitched whining


Sounds like a tube TV . If so I believe the tube is cracked not hard to do during moving Ive done it before. it can be replaced for around 125$ to 200$ look at how much your TV is worth and if it does not exceed the value of you unit . Then locate a repair shop in the yellow pages.
