Fixing the picture in my Philips rear projection tv

As far as mostly red--turn color to zero and examine screen--if not gray or black and white it may need the screen controls adjusted.

Dark---with back cover off clean the three lens this model has--they are the light source for your picture and if dusty picture will be darker and somewhat dull looking.

Answer is based on brand/model number listed here.

Leave the CRT's alone!!!!! You will ruin them. The red wires come out of the Fly-back. Pull the rubber caps up and then with a twisting motion pull each red wire out 1 at a time.

The black unit is the high voltage transformer and splitter and it has possibly cracked causing high voltage to leak out. Unless you have a heavy duty soldering iron and good with multiple solder connections, it may be best to have a technician check it out for you. I would guess it would cost in the $200-$300 range. Thanks for using fixya.

Picture looks like its 3D what is the problem

The D52W20 had an issue with solder joints around the flyback. When you take the back off the flyback is on the very left closes to the back of the tv and has a large red wire coming out of it. Looking from the top down you will see three small orange rectangles in a row. These are fuses and one of them is going to be opened.

All you have to do is resolder the pins on the flyback and replace the fuse and you should regain convergence.

Pulled the wires for the crts off. didn't label them correctly help

Yes the first one near the rear of the set goes to the blue crt which if you are looking in from rear will be on the far left and the middle will go to green in the middle and the 3rd or last will go to red on the right. A rule of thumb in this case is alway red on right and green is always middle crt.
