Philips 34pw9818 fuzzy screen

Sweet TV had it for about 6 or 7 years. One day the picture started to become fuzzy. It became worse over a few days and has remained fuzzy with inability to even read the menu secondary to fuzzy look. My guess was the tube went out. Any suggestions

Inside the set you should see a large part with a red wire coming out the top. That is the flyback transformer. There will be 1 or 2 controls on the back of it. One should be labeled screen and one focus. Carefully adjust the focus one until the picture is again in focus. Please note that in that area are high voltages (33,000V) that can be dangerous. Be careful where you touch. IT is best to have a mirror so you can see the picture while adjusting the focus control.

The easiest solution is to replace the box. Otherwise, you can try leaving the unit unplugged for a day or more to drain the power and ideally reset the box.

LG hdtv picture has started to get fuzzy and it


How many years have you had the TV?

The systems wear out over a period of about 2- 4 years.

LED systems, now very expensive, have a longer life expectancy than LCD systems.

Most of these monitors have a 3 year warrantly. Give them a ring and see if they will exchange it. No harm in trying!

I have a 6 year old Samsung PCJ522R 52" TV.


It sounds like at least one of 3 "IHVT",s popped. in short, a "IHVT" is a high voltage transformer. It will have to be replaced along with any other parts that were damaged in the process.
They do produce a strong odor when they pop!!

It is repairable but at a price. there is a good chance that parts will have to be ordered.

you might consider buying a new LCD HDTV instead of fixing this one.

36" tube tv. picture fuzzy and out of focus


It sounds like you may have a G1 intermittent short in the picture tube, which unless it is still in warranty would not be worth repairing.
