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.

    Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.



    Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )



    Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem


    • 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.




    Here is a quick test....

    Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

    Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



    You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

    If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.



    Solution #1



    You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.





    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.



    Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

Your CRT fluid needs to be replaced. After many years the crt cooling fluid gets a ton of alage built up in the tubes.  This will cause the screen to get a halo effect or get darker.

You only need to replace the fluid in the blue and green tubes.

No. your problem is related to the coolant in the green CRT has congealed with bacteria and needs to be changed. Thats what causes the halos and general poor picture and color quality. The blue should be changed also. The red for some reason doesnt seem to be affected by the bacteria problem. This is a common problem that happens with all projection TVs phillips and magnavox TVs

The sympton for contaminated CRT coolant is objects having a halo effect on the effected CRT color. The Blue and green are the CRTs most often contaminated. But to answer the question changing coolant does help. You can look into the crt with it turned on to see if the coolant is congealed. Just be carteful not to touch any components as you look into the CRT lens.
