On my Philis 51PW9303/17F projection TV, the colors are weak. Adjusting the color and tint have no effect on the color intensity or hue. I was given this set and it was worked on. THANKS Mike

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. 

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.

    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.

    Solution #1

    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.

Tv screen is high in green color what settings do I need to be on


If your TV has a color temperature setting; it is probably on medium. Try it on warm. This will decrease the amount of green and increase the red.

Otherwise you will need access to the tint/hue controls; adjusting it more toward red will help.

Problem with the Toshiba 50H13 50 in. Rear Projection Television. Green tint


The tubes have aged and the colour balance between the tubes has shifted. You will need to redo it using a black/white test image: first the black (the cutoff point), then the white (the gain) on each tube - always start with the green colour. This is done on the final video amplifier of each tube by adjusting the corresponding semiadjustable resistors.

Samsung DLP Facial Colors off after changing color wheel


Do you mean that red and blue are reversed? If so, you may need to remove a jumper, see end of linked article. Pinkish-yellow or orange sounds like a good description of skin tone, but perhaps too intense. If the color is too intense, can you just lower the color level with the color control? Or can you just change the tint with the tint control? Otherwise, see http://www.jangro.com/electronics/samsung-dlp-replace-color-wheel/ including the comments at the end.

Hitachi 52 projection tv


use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
