First, average life on these sets is about 3 to 4 years at best and only boards are sold so even if you can pin point the board (no individual parts are sold) it is likely if will not get fixed and doing so is a bad investment as all the boards are now old.

SOURCE: Red Light Flashing 6 times

When the lamp fails in this unit, often the thermal fuse opens. The error code is 6 blinks. To replace this part requires a great deal of deal of disassembly.

I think you have problems with the digital main PWB.

If the power PWB failed, turn off and change the pilot ligth to red.

Dark horizontal line


likely coming from main board which is involved in all signal---on screen display comes directly from a different area---4 years is about the life span of one of these sets---Google the model number with parts to see which boards it uses and what they sell for.

One of the most common faults with the phillips rear projections is the coolant in the tubes. That can and will make the picture very dim and can cause the brightness and focus controls not to have much affect over it. Please respond to this same post with your model number and I will check to see if their are any other items that could cause that symptom.

Picture too dark


You didn't say if you are receiving an off air picture or cable or satellite. The reason the commercials look good is because the local station (or source) transmits them "in the clear", that is, without any enhancements to the video signal. Network programing or local newscasts are sent through a device which inserts a reference signal in what's called the "vertical interval". You may have seen this as a series of flashing dots or pulses at the very top of the picture. There's a lot of information packed into the VITS (Vertcal Interval Test Signal). One of the lines contains a reference pulse for video which is set at a certain level. Your TV sees that level and automatically adjusts its circuitry accordingly. What I suspect is that your set is out of calibration and is pushing down the video signal because it is not "seeing" the level properly. A video alignment should correct this and can be done by a good repair facility. Hope this helps.
