Phillips 51pw936317f picture not as sharp as when new

Picture no longer appears to be as sharp and clear as when new. I have been told that it may need a new bulb as we have own this 51" read projection flat screen for over 4 years and it is rarly turned off. The bulbs appear easy to purchase, however are they easy to replace, or do I need an expert to do this repair?

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.

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years, some sooner, because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

Green solarization effect in picture - Sharp LCD TV


I have had the same problem this week on my Sharp 32" LCD TV. I'm told that it is a 'contact' problem that Sharp are aware of. A screw has been modified to correct this. My TV was repaired on-site & took about 15 minutes to replace the faulty part. I have an extended warrenty (thankfully) so can't give you a price for the repair - sorry. Best of luck

I recommend calling a service company because they don't go that far out of adjustment without there being a problem.

Blurred picture, after some warm-up it back to clear picture


If the problem doesn't return after the picture becomes normal, then it could just be due to the electron gun taking longer to fire up. I don't know how old your TV is, but TVs older than ten years typically take longer to warm up than more modern sets.

You need to change the coolant in the CRTs. Its a common problem with phillips/magnavox TVs. You can get the coolant replacement kit at the following link with all the coolant and the step by step instructions with pictures on CD. Its listed under the repair kits. magnavox and phillips are the same TVs. here is the link.

Screen Flashing


In a Sony TV, the most common cause of the picture flashing on and off is a weak picture tube. When the set was new, it took about 5 to 10 seconds for the picture to appear once the set was turned on. This is normal. If you have been noticing that it has been taking longer and longer to first appear, this is the clear signal that one of the picture tubes is getting tired. There is a circuit called IK Blanking that monitors each picture tube and adjusts them as the tubes age, so you always see a good picture. When one of the tubes has weakened so much that it cannot produce enough brightness in the picture, the circuit shuts the picture off completely. I guess Sony does not want you to see a tired, dull picture. When the tube is right on the edge of being too weak to keep the picture on, the picture will flash on and off, and it will also take much longer beofre it first turns on. The good news is that the Sony picture tubes always respond beautifully to reactivation (CRT Recharge) but you will need a qualified tech familiar with Sony projection sets to handle that repair for you.
