Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

White looks blue

Everything white on the screen looks blue, especially if there is a dark background. Not only is the white bluish, the white has a haze around it that is bluish in color. Sharpness is gone, appears that the blue is not focused.

    Most likely is related to the deflection coils but TV was never hit hard and has not been moved. Hue is adequate- adjusted in every direction and the blue shadow (haze) around the white continues



    Thanks

This problem is caused by contaminated coolant in the BLUE crt.

It has grown bacteria and the bacteria is bluring / fogging the picture. You need to remove the blue crt, drain out the old coolant (which I suspect will look like apple juice or apple sauce) Once this is done, clean out the crt lenses, and the surface of the crt under the lense. Once cleaned, reassemble, and refill with new, crystal clear crt coolant, re-converge, and it will be a night and day difference!

If you need a service manual for this set I have uploaded it in the resources / technicians corner section of techlore.com.

Usually there's a HUE setting for color problems. try to go and play with the HUE whih is usually beside the contrast, brightness....etc.

if that didnt work, then there's a problem with the deflection coils focusing, either from shipping or a hard hit. if its still under warranty send it back for repair.

let me know if that helped, good luck :)

Bluish screen whites really bright background really dark it was fine untill some one messed with the color


Their is a CRT fluid that keeps the three lenses cool ontop of the tubes. The fluid goes bad after a few years and causes what you describe.

You can see the red blue and green lines on my tv it is like it is out of sync


I'm not sure what you mean by the "lines". If you mean the image looks like "double" (or triple!) vision, then you need to adjust the red/green/blue convergence. This is especially noticeable with white images on dark background (like text of credits). If this is it, check you manual or explore your menu via the remote. Sometimes convergence can be a problem if the tv was moved or experienced large changes in temperature... or sometimes all by itself!

My sony grand wega gives a blue shade on the black background which is the problem


HI, Check the menu set up of the TV. There should be an alignment feature that aligns the blue, red, and green colour projectors. If the blue is out of alignment that is likely why you can see it on the dark backgrounds. The set up normally puts a white cross on the screen and you select each of these colours and then move the cross over the white on with the arrows on your remote. Once all are aligned correctly you shouldn't be able to distinguish between different colours and hopefully this should get rid of your blue shade.

White objects (especially text) on a black background produce a white halo effect around the white lettering. When playing a PS3 game I noticed that the blue color appeared black, as though I had no blue...





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.

Blue out of focus; casting blue "glow"


Try changing the coolant in the blue tube. Contaminated coolant will give a halo look to the affected tube and you will experience difficulty focusing that color.Phillips/magnavox's blue is the tube most often affected with the contaminated coolant issues.
