Philips 32 inch wide screen tv model 1001940732p10423

Purchased new in 2004 October, has been great but last six months we have noticed a red patch at the top left of the screen, comes and goes and can mainly be seen when there is a blue background, it is now getting worse and larger, can anyone tell me if they have seen this before? what could the fault be??

Thanks Richard.

Common issue with Philips projections is contaminated cooling fluid in most likely 2 of the 3 CRT's. This will require a technician to clean and refill.

This is problem of convergence output chips failure and it is fixable.
Replacement of convergence output chips on D board will solve tv problem, local tv repairman will do this job because convergence output chips replacement requires soldering work on circuit board.

thought I would let you all know of the recall.

For models:
Models: KF-42WE610, KF-50WE610, KF-60WE610, KDF-70XBR950, KDF-60XBR950, KDF-42WE655, KDF-50WE655, KDF-55WF655, KDF-60WF655, KDF-55XS955, KDF-60XS955, KF-42WE620, and KF-50WE620.

/This is a free repair on the optical block/engine. For specifically a road mapping issue. (Where there is sparactic grouped lines on the screen of the TV)

Otherwise there is a full recall on all 50XBR1's and 60XBR1's for ANY video issue.
But the bullentin I do have on that is Confidential due to the amount of claims SONY could recieve. But here is a sample of the bulletin.

Models: KDSR50XBR1, KDSR60XBR1

Subject: Optical Block: Warranty Policy and Part matrix by serial number.

Resolution: As part of Sony’s commitment to quality, Sony is announcing that it is extending the limited warranty (parts and labor) for optical block replacements on the models listed above until October 31, 2008, regardless of purchase date. Authorized servicers should follow the normal process for warranty claims for this issue.

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