Excessively bright whites...has a haze around any white items. all other colors are fine.

Was practically given Phillips 50pp9202 hdtv from friend...picture and sound are terrific except the whites are glaring and hazy...adjusted convergence to best of my ability as well as brightness etc. Any ideas? It is hooked up to satellite only. I have seen suggestions to others butthey all involve blue/red/green...no "white" issues?!

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,dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see white halos around images.

Here is a photo of a set that needs the fluid changed.

I have a phillips rear projection tv model no 55PP8620/79. Its showing a a red haze and poor picture quality. How do I fix this?


If the red haze is not convergence---that requires parts.

The set has three picture tubes---with set unplugged and back cover removed clean the three large lens that are topside---as for the red haze a quick way to know what is wrong is with set on turn the color to zero----what color is the screen? Should be black and white--if red to some degree tracking or screen controls may need adjusting inside the set---Yellow picture in that situation is a different issue.

Hi i have a phillips 43pp6360/79 it has a very cloudy over bright picture. Also when adjusting the blue convergence the second cross dosent appear anywhere but a slight blue haze moves around the first...


I'm not quite sure about the convergence issue, but the glowing white haze is a sign that the fluid in the color tubes is dirty and usually can only be fixed if the fluids are changed out(draining and refilling). This is not recommended for someone who does not know what they are doing, it is best to get an expert to do this work because it can be dangerous as well as hazardous to your television and quite expensive. Mostly all rear projection televisions will have this issue, but I find that just upgrading to a newer-model television is usually better, maybe a flat panel LCD(Liquid Crystal Display)(stay away from unknown brands and plasmas, although Vizio's LCDs will get you more bang for your buck). On an LCD, all you really have to worry about is cracking the liquid-crystal display, which is quite fragile, but can be avoided if no hands or objects touch the LCD. On the other hand, best of luck in fixing your Philips rear-projection.

Inside of your TV their is a fluid that keeps the tubes cool. Over the years this fluid will turn cloudy and cuase the screen to look dull, bright white, have halos, etc. You can get the fluid over the internet from various sources or your can get a complete kit including repair instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com.

Remove the upper back and clean the three projector lenses with Windex and soft paper towel. You have dust build up. If there are smokers in the house then also windex the back side of the screen to get the nicotine film off. This cured my picture. I had lost fine detail and the picture looked like there was a white haze over it.

I'm hoping to get some clarification as to whether the below is correct or whether I have been taken for a ride. My LG was picked up by a repair service because it started displaying horizonal lines with the picture hazily in the background. I undertook some research and learned that in most cases of the boards needed replacing and it wasn't a panel issue (usually panel issues are associated with vertical lines). After having my TV for 5 days the repair service advised that it required a new power board and a small repair required on another board. They repaired the small repair and I was going to purchase a new power board however the TV has been returned to me dead. It now doesn't even turn on. The power/channel/indicator lights at the bottom flash on then switch off automatically. After getting consumer affairs involved, I finally received a call from the sub contractor and aside from a number of different excuses given based on my questioning of each explanation, all were contrary to the initial diagnosis discussed with me in early June. I documented the conversation which I summarise as follows: - he contacted numerous times however I never received any voicemail. I asked why - after "numerous phone calls" he didn't send a txt msg to which he replied that he's not allowed to send messages. - he initially alleged that the power board was repaired and video board needed replacing which I was quoted for. I corrected him advising that I was told and quoted for a new power board ($530) and the video board was to be repaired. He then changed his story agreeing with me and alleged that found and apparently quoted me $445 for a generic power board but I declined....Just to clarify, I never received this 2nd quote which is evidenced within the emails and messages I sent after receiving no response over a number of weeks. - he continued to claim that the TV now has panel problems and is now not repairable. - I recited the discussion the owner had with me which was consistent with the information when he provided me with the original quote of $530. He then altered his story replying that "this is a rare case... The owner doesn't know what he's saying". - When I challenged why I was quoted for a power board when he is now claiming there are panel issues, his response was that a new power board was to test if the panel was cracked!! - I replied saying that the TV was delivered to them with horizontal lines and even after testing should've been returned with horizonal lines however is now dead. - his excuse changed again advising that during testing he short circuited the TV and replacing the power board would continue to short circuit the video board..When I again questioned WHY then was i quoted for a new power board (as per the owners conversation with me) he returned back to stating that it was a rare case! - I told him about the screws missing in the back panel to which he commented that "they" wouldn't have put them back in because "they" assumed I would just dispose of the TV. What I find interesting is that this was his understanding whilst I was led to believe the TV was repaired (pending a new power board). It now makes sense as to why the driver who delivered the TV literally dropped it off and ran advising that he didn't know anything. I never received a service report and asked for it again however am yet to see it. Based on this information, can anybody shed light on what they've done to the TV? Prior to them taking the TV the horizontal lines were consistent with had a faint picture in the background and didn't alter at all. They're claiming that they did nothing and the TV - claiming that the reason why the panel doesn't turn on is because it was kept on while they were testing.
