Philips TV's have a reputation of bad coolant fluid. This fluid is found between the picture tube face and the projection lens. The coolant starts turning a milky brown color and causes the picture coming through it to be degraded. This envolves removing the picture tubes and changing the fluid. This is a very complicated repair because it envolves convergence adjustment after it is reassembled. Most shops charge about $300-$400 bucks to do this. Have a shop check it out for you and make sure that is what the problem is. Thanks for using fixya. I hope this gets you on the right track.
The I2C message that you get means the Inter IC communication bus on the system board has gone bad. Replacing the IC would not solve the problem.Philips patented this technology to reduce the number of ICs on the systemboard.There would be a physical I2C chip on the motherboard.
You can read about the technology on the post by philips http://www.nxp.com/acrobat_download/applicationnotes/AN10216_1.pdf
I would suggest update the firmware on the board, or try replacing the I2c interface controller chip.
check the wires inside at the left lower region as you are looking at the rear. There are several circuit boards there that tend to loosen when moved. The cables are really ribbons like those used in computers. I'd lioke to be more specific however I'm not entirely familiar with this model, just rear projection tvs in general.
