Color on my tv

I have a 52 inch magnavox and is at least 10 years old. The set keeps on trucking, but the color is off now. How do I get it back to the right color? It still works great other that this.

Re: color on my tv

Are you refering to dim colors? If so as long as you dont see any halos your coolant may still be passable. I have seen sets that come back to vivid colors just by cleaning the mirroe and lenses on the crts. You can easily get to the mirror from behind after taking off the back panel and lieing close to the set leaning in over the chassis. Dont use windex a damp soft cloth works best then dry it good with some soft paper towels. Iff you can reach the back side of the screen do that also. The mirrors get dull after awhile and cleaning them really makes a difference. Hope this helps.

Picture shrinks to only show top half

This is a common problem on certain models of Philips Magnavox TV sets. The most common symptom is the screen will shrink and expand over and over. After the TV heats up for a while the video will work like normal. After a few weeks or months your TV will eventually stop working and not have video.

Bad picture

A 10 year old Rear Projection tv is usually at the end of its life. No such thing as "fluid". Best advice, get a new TV.

Magnavox model 6P5440

You can turn up the Screen controls in back of set. Look for the focus block that has 6 controls on it. 3 are for the screen and 3 for the focus, in each color Red, Blue, Green. need to turn evenly to keep color balanced. On set turn color all the way down and then get a good black and white picture.

Hitachi 52 projection tv

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.
