Question about Philips 50P8341 50" Rear Projection Television
I've had this Tv for 5 or so years and it's always had this haze over it. Not enough to disturb the picture but it gives it this bright, glowing effect. Kind of like when cameramen put a screen over their lense so everything has a glowing angelic feel so as to cover imperfections in the actor's faces. Hard to describe I guess. But it's always had it and it was ok but as time has gone on, I've decided to inquire about it. I know it's not HD but I'd at least like it to have the clarity of my small tvs. Not staticky or anything, it's a clean picture but i guess kind of washed out.
The second issue is that periodically when something bright or explosive happens on a program, the tv flashes. Not off and on but a split second flash of brightness kind of like a camera flash but not as pronounced. In any case, during that extremely brief flash split second all you are seeing is the flash, not the program on tv. My friends didnt really notice it until I pointed it out to them. This too has been there since day one. My wife bought it as an opened gift for Christmas from Walmart.
Maybe you need open the tv the upper case and need to clean the mirror and the lens
