Problem with Colors Seperating

Hi, I have a Philips 60 inch Rear Projection TV that I purchased about 4 years ago from Costco. A few months ago the colors starting seperating on the screen and the only way to fix it was to unplug it while it was on, plug back in and turn on again. For a few months that seemed to fix the problem. About a month ago it started getting worse and needed to "warm up" for a few hours before unplugging and plugging in would work. Well, now there are red lines all along the bottom and center of the screen and the picture is also messed up and not in line with where it should be. I've tried converging the colors (all of them) using my remote and even went as far as taking the back off of the TV and trying to see if one of the projectors was maybe out of place, but I couldn't find anything that looked out of the ordinary, not that I would even know since I've never assembed or disassembled a TV before this. Please help. Prior to this my TV was great, I want it back. Thanks so much!

The IC's in my tv were on the right side attached to the mainboard, so you would have to remove some screws and plugs to get to it. It is fairly easy if you know how to use a solder gun good. The IC's are attached to a silver looking vertical metal piece and has two clips holding them close to the unit. Good Luck!

Can the remote move the clors in all 4 directions? If not the convergence ICs need to be replaced. Also check the resistors that power the ICs they are located right next to the ICs

The colors look very weak. The green is weaker than the blue. Red seems ok. I have a philips 60 inch rear projection. It almost looks like a haze. The colors are not crisp. .


The TV has coolant in the CRTs that after years of use get cloudy. you will need to have a shop replace the coolant in all three, it is pretty involved so its best to have a trained tech. do it.

Philips 60 inch rear projection screen is wacky!!


Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Phillips 60 in. rear projection approx. 10 years old


This is a common problem with the older models. The opt chip fails. You can get a repair kit at www.magnavoxhelp.com. After a few months of getting smaller and smaller the audio and video will go out but the power light will remain lit.

If the picture is changing size when bright images appear on screen, then a power regulator issue is what you have. Have a technician look at it.
