Blurry/Hazy picture on Philips Tv

Hi - 2 and a half years ago i bought a Philips 36pw8719 crt from currys. Over the last number of weeks the picture has become blurry/hazy and it seems to be getting worse. Its not that noticeable when there are closeups but any scenes at a distance are not good. Any text that appears on screen is awful though. I have phoned Currys and they have told me that because it is over the year long guarantee period there is not much they can do(typical really). I have seen somewhere else about a G1 intermmitent short problem(no idea what this means). I paid approx £900 for the set in the UK here. Any ideas?

As your problem is the picture has become blurry/hazy 1 it sounds me that there is a little sparking near high voltage section that is near flyback transformer.please get it check. 2 if it is ok then focusing anode wire going to crt base from flyback transformer is not making proper contact due to some foreign material deposited on it. please call tech person if you ae not aware of it as tv is a very high voltage device.

Sounds like you need a lower Y-DRV/BUFFER board (996500032640) and a Y-SUS board (996500032643). Part numbers listed are for models which use a Samsung Panel.

if you bought it under one year ago then the retailer should be obliged to either replace it or repair it. I would look into this further, ask to speak to the manager or something casue when a tv switches itself off it indicates an error inside and turns itself off to prevent further damage.
