My set began projecting a pink and shadow. It only seems to do this with hi-def sources. The s-video input still seems to work fine, it is just the images connected to the tv by way of component video sources that seem to have this problem. Another strange issue is that I have both my dish and dvd routed to my tv by way of my receiver. Both inputs enter the receiver by way of component video cables and then channel through one common cable to the tv. The strange thing is that the DVD image is fine on the tv, while the dish image has the shadow? Is my set just not processing hi-def images correctly. My xbox 360 which is plugged into a separate hi-def input directly to the tv also shares the same problem. Any ideas? Thanks.

Re: TV projects a pink/green shadow
Logically proceed one source at a time = disconnect all,
then hook-up one at a time or hook-up seperately.FYI, the
RF coax , composite and s-video inputs all share the same
circuitry, whereas component is a whole seperate video
processing circuit, with another difference between 480P and
1080 I . Sounds like you have a 1080 I problem, which might
be a little sister board..............................T.

If you are using a high def tv and u want to play with hi def graphics, u must put the switch on the xbox av/component leads to HDTV, otherwise,standard def will be used. Check the tv input by using a dvd player or another input source to confirm it works. Good Luck.
Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.
Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.
The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

Does it look like a glowing halo, and makes the set impossible to adjust it out? Please respond to this same post I may be able to help, as it sounds like a coolant problem, very common in phillips TVs
You would need the service manual and actually trouble shoot the input circuits. If you would like a link where you can purchase the manual and have it emailed instantly to you let me know. The service manuals there are cheap and the quality is exceptional.
My computer did this and I think my TVs just gone the same way. Was definitely a loose connection somewhere. In the computer monitor it was because the pins in the plug were slightly bent and if I moved the wire the picture got better. In the end I had to replace the connecting cable
