You have one of two problems. Sometimes both.

Problem #1) 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.

Problem #2)

Your TV may have a convergence 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 adjusMy philips 46PP8621 is cloudy and any white in the - 0667c5f.pngnd 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 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.

When pictures are taken out side they come out pink


Your White Balance may need adjusting - try looking in the menu system for White Balance, then set it to AWB (Average White Balance) or an appropriate outdoor setting (Sunlight, Shade, Cloudy etc). The manual should help if you are stuck.

My TV has gradualy developed a blurred picture over the last month and now is unwatchable, is it worth fixing. It is 8 years old


guessing this is a rear projection tv. You did not provide a model number. Check the CRT fluid to be sure it is clear and not cloudy. Since you mentioned the problem was gradual over time, I'm guessing it is the fluid. This would be more obvious if you were seeing like a frosted look to the picture or dark areas and bright areas, which are caused as the fluid clouds up.

Your alternative is to try adjusting the focus of each bulb on the focus block of the tv. I think with an older Philips the focus block is in the back of the tv.

When pictures are taken outside during the day they are unclear with some white horizontal lines and when taken indoors its ok.tried everything the manual said but still no changes


White shadow or white lines may occur if the light was too bright when you take the picture, especially in strong sun light. Have you turn off the flash light when you taking those picture ? If you haven't, then you should try to turn off your camera flash light manually. And I must remind you not to take a picture with your lens faced the sun light or other light (lamp etc) directly. Even if you take a picture outdoors, try to make your lens shaded by something, you can even use your own shadow to shade them.

Hope this help and be kind to rate please.

Magnavox rear proj (model# 8p6044 c102) pic is cloudy/green tint


Yes the coolant gets crud buildup in it over time which will cause the color and clarity to get very poor with obects that will glow around certain bright ojects. You can get the Phillips CRT coolant replacement kit from www.tvrepairworld.com which has the CRT coolant for all 3 CRTs and also includes the Cd with instructions on how to do the replacement.

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 TINT ON MY SCREEN


Philips tv's have always had this problem. Between the picture tube and focus lens there is a layer of coolant fluid. The coolant fluid, over time, will break down and turn a brownish cloudy color and it usually starts with the blue. Something to do with the color frequency. Have a good repair shop check it out and if the fluid is the problem have them change all the fluid in all 3 picture tubes (there is a red, green and blue tube). Don't feel bad, like I said all the philips projo's had this problem. Thanks

I have a 8p6044 c101 that has a very dim and slitly blury picture


Philip Magnavox sets have a clear fluid that floats between the lens and the tube. It is used to keep the tube cool. After a few years the fluid will get cloudy and cause the video to have one or more of the following symptoms...

  • Video looks dull
  • Video looks bright white
  • Video looks red
  • images have halos around them
You can see some examples and find a fix here...
