Question about Philips 60P8342 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Green outline I have a phillips 60p8342 60 in rear projection screen. There is no more definitions with images. There seems to be a greenish ghost shadow arround every image. It is mostly noticeable in defined areas or characters such as arround people or the scrolling ticker box at the bottom or top of the screen when I am watching sports. Is there any way that I can re-sharpen these images?

Re: green outline

This particular unit has a common problem with coolant contamination. It is slightly possible - only slightly - that the focus block needs adjusting, but I'd first suspect coolant contamination... This is one job I would recommend that you attempt. On a scale of 1 to 10, and ten being the most difficult, this is a 10 even for a qualified shop with all the best of equipment.
My advice, take it in and have it repaired...

You may have to do the full convergence alignment for all three CRTs, as outlined in the service manual for your model. Do you have the full service manual for your set which outlines the alignment and convergence proceedures?
