If decide to do yourself, ya only have to do the green and blue ones, the red light spectrum won't allow fungal growth. Pull whole CRT assembly out to prevent spilled/leaking glycol from onto lower main boards

The fluid in the picture tubes is probably bad, a common problem with Magnavox. Not something you want to attempt yourself. Call a service shop.

Magnavox rear proj (model# 8p6044 c102) pic is cloudy/green tint


Yes the coolant gets crud buildup in it over time which will cause the color and clarity to get very poor with obects that will glow around certain bright ojects. You can get the Phillips CRT coolant replacement kit from www.tvrepairworld.com which has the CRT coolant for all 3 CRTs and also includes the Cd with instructions on how to do the replacement.

I have a 8p6044 c101 that has a very dim and slitly blury picture


Philip Magnavox sets have a clear fluid that floats between the lens and the tube. It is used to keep the tube cool. After a few years the fluid will get cloudy and cause the video to have one or more of the following symptoms...

  • Video looks dull
  • Video looks bright white
  • Video looks red
  • images have halos around them
You can see some examples and find a fix here...

I have a Philips Magnavox ptv843 and it has a red tint. The picture is really dark, I can hardly see anything in dark seens. I tried to adjust the contrast and brightness but no help. Thanks


These TV's are known for polluted coolant in the picture tubes.The coolant is between the lense and the tube. The factory has a Service Bulletin about this problem and they say to change the coolant in each picture tube. This will make the TV look like it did when it was new.

Blurry screen


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 white, look dull, look 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.

Power light comes on and goes right off


Take a look at the blue round capacitors. They stand on end and about the size of a dime and 1/8" thick. They should be by the highvoltage transformer. That's the plastic box with a spark-plug wire sticking out the top. The circuit board should have numbers printed by the parts. Look for c811 or C8** . The C means capacitor and the 800 numbers means the circuit it's in. This is a horizontal output capacitor your looking for. You will see it burnt. Might not be blue...could be yellow or orange. But you should know what kind of capacitor to look for by the description I gave. This seemed to be a problem with these sets....or atleast one problem of MANY. If it's not that, then you need big time service. I wouldn't waste your money on a Magnavox. They just don't hold-up to repairs very well. If you find the burnt part, let me know what the location is...C8**....and I'll tell you what the value is. You won't beable to read it if it's burnt. Now atleast you know what your looking at. Sometimes if you have someone turn the set on while you look at the board in a dark room, it will spark. Hope that helps. Good-luck.

I have a Philips Magnovox 8P6044 C101 60" rear projection tv that appears dim and slightly blurry. Waht are the suggested fixes and what would be a range of repair costs?


as far as the foggy / blurry appearance goes, you more than lkely have contaminated CRT coolant. This coolant (inside the lenses) should be crystal clear, and normally over time, with heat and time the crt's will grow a sort of bacteria in the coolant. I have drained crt's and the coolant has looked like applesauce before. Once you clean the crt's and replace the coolant with new coolant, the pic should be just as good as new!
