Question about Philips Magnavox 9P6034C 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Red "aura" in the middle of my 55" Phillips Magnavox

My 55" Phillips Magnavox TV (9P5511C1) has a red "aura" in the middle of the screen. The picture has also lost it's crispness and appears dull. When adjusting the convergence the cross it not totally white; there is red showing through on all four points of the cross. Should I purchase a CRT Coolant Replacement Kit, or is it more likely a convergence chip problem?

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 directiRed "aura" in the middle of my 55" Phillips Magnav - 2c07611.pngnvergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

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.

We have Phillips 55 in rear projection TV and just set our color convergence back to factory settings but we still have an awful picture. Any suggestions? All objects have multiple halo bars on them....


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D

The Phillips are famous for the coolant needing replacement in the blue and green CRTs which make the screen take on a red tint and the pic will appear dull. You can get the Phillips coolant Kit at www.tvrepairworld.com The kit also contains the CD with instructions

This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets.

One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.

The other common problem is cloudy lens fluid. After many years the coolant in the blue and green lens will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, bright white, etc. You may even see halos around video.

My 60inc phillips magnovox has poor color, what do i have to do?


we just bought a 55 inch phillips magnavox and told it was working fine when we got it home and turned it on it was a red screen and was really foggy. we looked up some tv repair places and ONLY 1 told us it was the picture tube and to look down them with a flashlight for bacteria! sure enough the green and blue had it. so we found one place that would sell us the coolant fluid that you have to change the others could get it in or wanted us to bring the tv to them. we did it our selves the stuff was $17.00 a bottle or if we took it in it would be about $375.00. we have a great picture now and it wasn't as hard as all the other repair places said.
