Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Picture is dark

I have a Phillips Magnavox big screen model # 9P6444 C103 and the picture is very dark and is best watched with the room lights off. What needs to be replaced or fixed? Any estimate on possible parts to fix it? It was given to me because someone didn't think it was worth fixing but it appears to be in excellent condition - it is only 8 yrs old. Please help. I will take the time to rate your help and input. Thanks.

On projections, there isn't much you can do as they age accept replace the CRTs. In that case you might as well buy a new one. One thing you can do is open the front speaker grill to where you can see inside the set. Depending on the brand, find the "Screen" controls, one for each tube. Some sets have all 3 on the "focus/screen" block (small black box mounted in front) and some have the knob on each individual CRT board (mounted to the bottom of the CRT). What this does is increases the current to each tube, thus making that colr brighter. Do each equally as to keep the color balanced. Only do this if you feel comfortable with working on electronics.

Phillips magnavox big screen rear projection tv


Base from the description that you gave us this is really a symptoms of a bulb that is going bad and needs replacement already, because it will just go bad dark as time goes on so it will be better for you to have the bulb replace as of now ....

Good luck.........

Picture is small then gets large then gets small again.


Probably a voltage regulator problem. It's not something you can fix yourself unfortunately

deflection problem very common on that model. You can get a new LSB board at the following link, leave them a email and they will respond quickly with a price quote for the LSB if they dont have it listed already, they are cheaper than anywhere else for replacement boards for phillips, RCA and GE. Heres the link.

I have a phillips magnovox big screen (March 2000) model # 9P6444 C103 - the picture is very dark and is best watched with the room lights off... what needs to be replaced or fixed?


The coolant fluid in the blue and green picture tubes is in need of changing.Unless you have done this before I do not recommend that you attempt this repair.A shop shoud be able to make this set look like new again for about $275

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.

Dim picture


If decide to do yourself, ya only have to do the green and blue ones, the red light spectrum won't allow fungal growth. Pull whole CRT assembly out to prevent spilled/leaking glycol from onto lower main boards
