Question about Philips 55P8341 55" Rear Projection Television
I have a 55" Phillips projection and the color is getting pretty bad. I had someone come look at it and they said the coolant needs to be changed. I found a kit on the website listed below and wasn't sure if I really needed everything they offer in the kit to replace the fluid or if I can just change the fluid with out replacing any parts. I'm not sure what the best way to do it is and I was wondering if someone could help me. I would like to know what I should get or need to fix my TV and I want to do it so it will last to the fullest extent. Thank you.

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 d55" Phillips Projection needs coolant changed - 578ba6c.jpgange, etc. You may even see halos around images.
