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.

The color is off and the figures are outlined in blue and yellow, plus the picture is cloudy looking.


Press menu on your set scroll down to where it says picture then press select. Now scroll down to convergence and press select. A white cross should appear on your screen. Your objective is to merge or converge all the crosses into the one white cross. If done right you should see only the white cross. You may see a little green and blue but don't be to picky. Make sure you read the on screen instructions on how to do this. After this you continue to the next step and you should see several white crosses across your screen. Do a convergence for each one of these crosses. Your picture should brighten up and your yellow and blue lines should go away. If it doesnt you have a bad convergence chip or some bad capacitors. If the first step doesn't fix it I would that you had a tech come and check it out.

Red and fuzzy picture can you help on my 50 inch phillips magnavox projection TV


This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets.
Screen looks 3D
Colors don't line up
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed or warped.
The other common problem is cloudy lens fluid. After many years the coolant in the blue and green lens will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, bright white, etc. You may even see halos around video.
You can see some example photos and find a solution here on Fixya.

Blue lines that surround a face or broken lines across the screen


Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1 - Failure in the convergence circuits. ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

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.

0667c5f.pngSOLUTION

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, 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. Notice how dull the colors are and how white the screen looks. The screen may also look red, orange, dull, etc.

I have green outlines in the pictures


go into your menu there should be something called convergence in the menu a red and a blue convergence. when you select one you will get a cross in the center of your screen use the selection keys to move this so the two crosses are on top of each other. once you align both the red and blue ( the green is the base) then go to the multi point convergence if all crosses are lined up you are good if not then you will need to replace the convergence I.C. for that color or both. let me know how this turns out.

You may have 1 of two problems.

1) Convergence Chips are failing - Using your original remote goto the "convergence" screen. 

Try to adjust the red - UP - DOWN - LEFT - RIGHT

Next try to adjust the blue - UP - DOWN - LEFT - RIGHT

If you can move both colors in all directions you do not have a convergence issue. 

If you can't move one or more colors in one or more directions the convergence chips are defective and need to be replaced. 

If your convergence chips test out ok the most likely problem is......

2) CRT Coolant is cloudy  - The bright outline you described is one common symptom. Other symptoms include dull images, red or orange tint, halo around images.   

If you goto the site www.TvRepairKits.com - and click on "Tips" - you will find more detailed instructions on how to check the convergence.

PANASONIC 47" WIDESCREEN REAR PROJECTION TV


Go to the convergence menu and see if you can see a clear Blue cross when you try to do a convergence. If the blue looks only like a blob of blue. then the coolant in the blue tube needs replacing. if the blue cross appears as a cross the convergence ICs are probaly weak. I would guess its the coolant thouh that model has a tendancy to trow a blue streak when the coolant is even a little cloudy. let me know if you need more assistance.
