Usually if you remove the speaker grill in front there is a convergence panel that can be carefully removed. If you look inside you should see a small rectangular block with six controls. They are labelled focus and screen, and red, blue and green. Adjust only the screen controls very carefully and slowly. I would recommend reducing the red slightly brfore raising the green and then blue until the picture looks acceptable. Be sure to center the on screen controls before starting.

Fixing the picture in my Philips rear projection tv

As far as mostly red--turn color to zero and examine screen--if not gray or black and white it may need the screen controls adjusted.

Dark---with back cover off clean the three lens this model has--they are the light source for your picture and if dusty picture will be darker and somewhat dull looking.

Answer is based on brand/model number listed here.

The colors look very weak. The green is weaker than the blue. Red seems ok. I have a philips 60 inch rear projection. It almost looks like a haze. The colors are not crisp. .

The TV has coolant in the CRTs that after years of use get cloudy. you will need to have a shop replace the coolant in all three, it is pretty involved so its best to have a trained tech. do it.

The tv is mostly red

replace the CRT coolant, as the green and blue get congealed and that causes the red to become dominate. You can get the Phillips CRT coolant kit at the following link which contains the coolant and the instructions on CD.

Convergence problem with philips 60 in.

depending on how old it is, it will either have a special menu (you will need to enter service mode to access it, need model number for that), or a panel in the back that you remove a few screws to gain access to. If it is the panel in the back, you will see about 20-50 little potentiometers, that have a slot in the top. Go to Radioshack, buy a TV alignment kit, stock number 64-2230. The pots will be in rows and columns, usually...and they should be labeled. Find the column/row for the red, and the pot for pincushion, which is the issue you are describing. With someone looking at the TV, and it on, turn that pot until the pincushion looks normal.

Color on my big screen tv

sounds like you need to have the two convergence IC's replaced. These are soldered on the main board. Good Luck
