I bought this rear projection TV and I was told it needs cooling fluid which I can get for around $20. The guy said the fluid is dirty,causing the bad picture. The picture fills the screen, but just seems kind of faded, or filtered looking. Does it sound like it just needs fluid? an can I find it for around $20?

    The link for step by step instructions was an advertisement for HP Printer ink, not changing TV coolant.I don't know if the step by step instructions are the same for my tv, since it's a sears and the LXI brand doesn't match up with anything. A few tips would be nice if O could get them.

Yes you can find the coolant for around 20.00 for each tube. Or you can get the coolant kit which contains all 3 tubrs coolant and the step by step instructions with pictures on CD at the following link.

How to fix my hitachi 65 tv


If you are saying that the picture is getting darker and you have already tried to adjust the picture through the menu feature on your TV then it is more than likely the cooling fluid around the CRT tubes. Over time the fluid in these tubes gets cloudy and causes your TVs picture to become dull and distorts the color. You can google tv repair kits .com and I believe they will have a kit for your model.

My panasonic projection tv is showing green spots what could be causing this problem.


If you have colored ~1" spot(s) it is most probably associated with EPROM (memory chip) defect. In that case the TV internal computer should be reprogrammed by a certified technician. They fixed mine that I bought in 2006 (4 years) ago FOR FREE.

I called Panasonic using the phone number in the manual (1-888-843-9788), selected Service, told that I got the problem which is most probably "a manufacturer's defect" that should be fixed for free - they redirected me to the next step, then to the next one and in about 20 minutes they arranged me a home-visit by a support person (the guy had to drive 2 hours to get here!).
The service guy came in two days, unscrewed the back panel, connected some kind of a box to one of the boards, turned TV onto some channel and let the box do its job for about 5 minutes - then all of a sudden the spots disappeared and the picture is OK now.

Have green hallo its not real bad yet but when


The thought is that some of the Glycol 'cooling fluid' has leaked out and this is what is causing your green halo!
I would have a qualified TV Tech look at it.

The screen seems dark and blurry


take off the front panel carefully, usually 2 screws around the controls. Next, stick your head in and look at the red green and blue tubes. see if they are dirty? if, not look further into the tube using aflaslight and see if there is a white pasty looking substance inside. IF so, you need to clean as you have bacteria growing in the cooling fluid. A big job and you need the gaskets, can order from Mitsubishi tech support..good luck be careful.

Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( 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 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.

Blue shadows on my philips projection tv


You have possibly contaminated fluid in your blue picture tube if it has a hazy look.Blacks and whites look bluish and whites have a blue bloom to them.The other problem could be bad convergence amps.This would be double image around letters on the screen.
