Question about Philips 32PT8302 32" TV

1 Answer

Red and Green Vertical Arches

There is a Red Vertical arch on the Right side and a Green Vertical arch on the Left side and they both go from top to bottom. It's gotten worse over time. I have used the contrast adjustment on the tv to fix the problem, but it only makes the screen darker and I can still see the arches. Anybody?

    Ok I made sure there were NO magnets next to the tv and I even bought a external degauser and I still have the same problem. There is a RED vertical arch on the left side and a GREEN vertical arch on the right side. Even after turning the contrast, color, and brightness down on the menu I can still see the discoloration on the left and right side, especially on bright scenes like a snuggles commercial.

CHECK ANY MAGNETIC MATERIALS ON THE CORNER OF THE TV.IT HAPPENS DUE TO MAGNETIC MATERIALS ONLY. SUPPOSE IF IT IS THERE KEEP AWAY FROM THE TV. AND THEN GO TO THE MENU OPTIONS AND SET AUTO DEGAUSSER ON.

I have a new thompson router but cannot get wifi connnection where is wifi on off button?


On a laptop your wifi on off button should be on the side, it will show a little tv symbol with small arches and on the other side a little tv symbol with no arches. The one with the arches means you can get the signal and you will have to change the switch to that one. If this does not work, it is possible that you computer does not have a built in wireless adapter and you may need to purchase one. If there is a slot on the side of your computer that is PCMCIA slot, you may need to put an adapter in there. You can purchase them on ebay for as little as $10, however in the store you could be looking at $40 to $70. Cheers.

Picture arches down at the top and arhes up at the bottom


Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

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.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.
