Have a look at the three lens this model should have, if dirty or dusty clean with a lens cloth, also peek inside and up to the rear to see if the mirror is dirty.

SOURCE: LINES THROUGHOUT SCREEN AND COLOR NOT SO CLEAR AND

It sounds like you are at the end of the useful life of your unit. It is a CRT projection unit and when the colors get dull, picture gets dim and especially when you have lines on the screen indicating retrace problems the CRTs are shot. Cost to replace would be more than new. I would recommend a DLP. Of all the schemes out there I think they are the best looking, least prone to breakdowns and most cost effective. Let me know if you need more help. Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating.

My tv has a red tint to it not sure what to do?


Projection 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 video.

Pic of a set that needs the fluid changed. Notice how dull the colors are and how white the screen looks. The screen may also look red, orange, dull, etc.

Color is washed out


57H82 does not have a color wheel but 3 picture tubes, remove rear cover and look for the three large black lens--if dusty they will lower brightness and make the set look dull or washed out.

I have a philps 51pw9303 digital HDTV monitor. The picture has gotten very dull and dark. The colors are very dim and dull. Is this a bulb problem?


Check the convergence settings if necessary, try to check the bulb cause sometimes is getting weak. If you want to replace the bulb don't forget to reset the lamp hour meter. Let me know your feedback. Good day and God bless. Hope it helps.

The color is bliry and faded . if it is a night scene the picture is really dark you can hardley see anything, depending on the pic. if a pic is blue all u see is blue. it is also bright


Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • 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.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common 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.

Color fading, orangy red, video adjustments don't fix.


if it is a tube type unit you may not find a new tube they are almost extinct ,
also, most tube malfunctions are caused by improper voltage, only a qualified tech should work on the high voltage section of a tube tv,,, it can kill you even if it has Not Been Plugged in for a whole year

re-post with the make and model number for further assistance

Ccreen quality


There is no yellow tube my freind, only a red, blue, and a green one. If its too bright, have you tried to turn down the black level yet or brightmess, and also the contrast. On these sets you don't need to have the brightness up way high, as the contrast does this. If, when you turn down the brightness, and the picture looks dull, you may need to clean off the mirrors, and or the lens for the picture tubes. If that does not help, there could be a problem in the screen drive circuit or the high voltage block. Good Luck Ps Please do not forget to rate this thread.

Colours all messed up and reds dull look brown


You should first turn off all the color on the set, or play a b&w Tape or dvd. What were looking for here is, what the color balance or grey scale looks like first. If a B&w video or whatever looks true to grey and black and white then you have whats called croma problem in the color or video demodulator. My friend I wish there was an easy way to assist you in this type of repair but theres not, as it could be a problem in the video/croma demod section of the video jungle IC and this is not a user serviceable part or repair as thers several issues concerning Hi voltage as well as x ray radiation. Now if its a problem where the grey scale or the B&W is not true to color then theres a problem in the R G B driver circuits. Could be a simple drive adjustment or even a soft or weak picture tube. I hope if your not a tech you seek a pro to assist you in this troubleshooting as this could be dangerous for you as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set. Good Luck
