Question about Philips 50P8341 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blue screen with sound but nothing else!

I was given a philips projection tv model # 50P8341. When you turn it on you get a blue screen and sound but nothing else. I tried adjusting the color but it just changed the color of the screen. I hit the menu button but nothing changes. When you turn the tv off I get a brief view of a picture. Is there anything I could do or do I have to take it in for repairs?
thanks in advance

I, too, acquired a Phillips without a manual and was experiencing a similar problem. My model is PTV 916, but if your TV has a "source select" button, say a prayer and press the button. From that point, I don't know what else I did, but I do get TV programs now.

Well i made the mistake of changing out my coolant in my crts lastnight in my Philips 50P8341 50 in. Rear Projection. i changed them fairly easily and even did my red just in case but my problem is that at...

Coolant is highly corrosive and will destroy any component that it touches. So the components will need to be desoldered and removed then tested and reinstalled. Also turning the screen adjustments too low will prevent the CRTs from turning on.

Sounds like the blue convergence IC s bad. They are relatively easy to replace if you can solder they cost around 10.00 each and you should change both the red and the blue.

Philips 50P8341 50 in. Rear Projection Television most of the color is red

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.
