Question about Philips 9P5044C 50 in. Rear Projection Television
Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.
Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence 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 directions your convergence 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.
Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

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.

Without knowing the model and from the content of the post, then, I will respond as if it is a rear projection LCD or DLP. A dim picture is almost always an indication of a lamp going out. The average life of a lamp is normally 3500 to 4000 hours of normal viewing. Usually 2 years. I have changed bulbs that had kept on working to 12,000 hours (about 4 years). The life of a lamp can be decreased by improper use, such as: Turning off the set and turning it back on immediatly (A common practice I have found when my customers have a procedure when turning a set along with periphals, like a cable box). Consistent power outages also shorten the life span of a lamp. 5 minute battery back up, so the set can shut down properly would help longegevity. Changing a lamp in most sets is definitly made for a customer to do themselves without a servicer, depending on the set. When buying a lamp, spend the extra money and buy a MFG origional part. Although, some lamp dealers say they are origional, they are a cheap knockoff and don't last but only a fraction of the time. If you have any questions, reply to this post and I will respond.
