Tv is yellow orange color what is problem

The model indicated does not have a "bulb" as it uses 3 picture tubes.

Examine the picture with color set at zero---stand back and look= if the screen has a mostly yellow (all or part of the screen) you have bad Glycol in the blue picture tube(if need explanation ask) and a look in the lens of the Blue tube will confirm this.

If able with back off and a small mirror look in each lens--red picture, green picture and blue picture.

If the Blue looks like a floodlight with little or no image--bad glycol in that tube.

Color red gone out of picture

Comment by other expert is a valid one----also look with color turned off to see if screen is black and white or another color.

Set does based on model given have 3 picture tubes---a peek inside with set on will reveal if red, green and blue tubes (lens point up) are lit or not.

My tv screen when on turns yellow then after a while it will switch back to normal colors what can be wrong with it....

Televisions covered: all Projection with yellow picture, but not Projection TVs with a yellowish tint surrounding objects in a nearly normal picture.

Yellow = red + green
normal picture = red + blue + green (RGB). See illustration.


Fig. 1 Additive color mixing in an RGB monitor, or RGB Projection TV.

The circuitry powering your blue output, or the blue light engine itself is starting to fail.

Operating Theory:

The lamp module shines a bright light into the optical unit; there are a series of lens and baffles, and at the top of the light engine, a lens puts the picture into a mirror which is reflected onto the screen; All video and color is processed thru the light engine. Blue most commonly fails first, leaving a yellow picture.

No Red color at all. The convergence feature does not work either. Lots of green and blue RCA Model D52W59

Red color gun has failed, which will make the picture over saturated with the other two colors(blue,green) the bad news is the three color guns need to be replace in a set(all at the same time) because if you only replace the red it will over saturate the older blue, green guns then your picture will be mostly red.Unfortunently in most cases it's not worth the investment, better off to purchase a new tv. Good luck !

I have a 60" projection tv philips magnavox model #9P6040 C104 PTV843. The color looks bad, the picture looks orange and red. What do I need to fix it and how much will it be.

You have one of two problems based on your description.

1.) Go to a channel that is in black and white and turn the color on the set all the way off.

Examine the screen and picture from several feet back----if the picture is mostly red and looks somewhat yellow in the main part of the screen you have a GLYCOL problem.

These sets have on each picture tube a sealed unit full of Glycol to cool the face of each tube (set has a red, green, blue picture tube)

If you find the yellow/orange look with the color off you most likely have bad Glycol in the blue picture tube---it never happens to the red--bacteria gets into the glycol and eventually there is no picture coming from (in most cases) the blue tube.

Loss of blue will leave you with Red and Green--mix those two and you usually get a orange/red affect.

There is a way to also confirm this with your eyes--it involves getting the back cover off of the set and holding a small mirror (with the set turned on--you have to be careful not to touch anything)

If you look in each lens you should see a fine picture--one red, one green and one blue--if as I suspect the blue tube is contaminated it will not have a picture and will look like a blue floodlight.

IF THIS IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM--GO into the customer menu and select convergence--what you are looking for is will red and blue adjust or not--are they skewed and will not move.

If this is the case you have a convergence problem--I can tell you what is involved to fix in either case.

TV picture is red.

Normal color picture is composed with 3 colors R-G-B (Red-Green-Blue). Picture turns Red means: Missing Green and Blue colors (many reasons: bad contacts, projector tubes dead, and other...). Try to give some "tabs" to diagnose ... I don't know what is the type of your Projection TV, how long you owned it, to have more idea.

Running out of Brightness

use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
