    I have the same problem! Where would I find the Chassis number? I haven't a clue anything about TV repair, but I would like to know the solution so I don't get a run around and charged for something more then I should. I'm in a financial bind and can't afford to be taken for a ride with this TV. As it is I will also need to find a repair person who does house calls in my area, as this TV is too heavy for me to lift and it won't even fit in my car.

Sounds more like the flyback. What is the chassis number of your set. The flyback if thats what it is would cost under 50 if you replace it yourself maybe 150 if a shop does it. But post the chassis number as the chassis number would make it easier to try to figure out if its the flyback or not.

I have sound but no picture. Turns on/off with no problem. Checked settings including playing DVD and other video settings- picture just went out


The model indicated has 3 picture tubes (right model?) and will blank or turn the tubes off for several reasons--almost all are protection.

In this kind of set if vertical loss of sweep (in old sets you would see just a white line left to right) it will not permit the tubes to be on as it would burn a line instantly in all three tubes screens.

If this model not likely to be a do it yourself repair.

Sound, but no picture


If before it was going rather bright red or a version of that--it is related to the circuit for the red picture tube this set uses---the tube itself or the circuit board that plugs onto the end of that tube.

If bright red, green or blue screen set will detect too much current being drawn and blank or turn tubes off; not likely a do it yourself repair and this set is prone to this and many other problems---Just Google the model number with "problems" and see what I mean.

How do I fix a fuzzy picture on my Philips 53" Widescreen Projection HDTV


A fuzzy picture could be almost anything. You may have to dust the three picture tubes. Use a soft paint brush first and then use a LCD cloth wipe to clean. You can find these clothwipes at any super discount store. And you may dust the inside of the screen itself. Try to dust the screen inside without removing it...removing it, will be almost impossible to reinstall! . Donot clean the mirror inside this TV..as it is a thin piece of film..If you must clean use a new feather duster and be gentle, do not use a cleaner! If this does not clear up the picture..you may have a contaminated picture tube..these are not easy to flushout and replace. And yet there may be a small signal module that may need replaced! This is the board that contains all your RCA jacks and RF connections! Hope this will help. Thanks for asking!

My picture on my philips rear projection 51PP9100D/37 is awful and very hard to see...what do I need to fix?


HELLO: I HAVE REPAIRED MANY OF THE PHILLIPS AND MAGNAVOX PROJECTION TVS BY SIMPLY EXCHANGING THE PICTURE TUBE COOLANT INBETWEEN THE TUBES AND THE LENS THERE ARE SEALED CONTAINERS THAT HAVE A MINERAL OIL COOLANT IN THEM THEY GET CONTAMINATED BY SOME KIND OF POSSIBLE BACTERIA OF SOME KIND ESPECIALLY THE BLUE LEAVING YOU WITH A SOMEWHAT FUZZY PICTURE REDISH YELLOW USUALLY. YOU WILL SEE WHAT I MEAN IF YOU REMOVE THE FRONT OF THE TELEVISION SCREEN AND LOOK INTO THE TUBES WHILE THEY ARE RUNNING. TO PROPERLY REPAIR THIS PROBLEM YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE TUBES IN MOST CASES OR CARFULLY SPLIT THEM FROM THE LENS ASSY BEING CAREFUL OF THE OLD FLUIDS INSIDE. CLEAN THE INSIDES WITH WINDEX AND RE ASSY WITH NEW FLUID . I HAVE USED CLEAR MINERAL OIL FROM THE DRUG STORE TO REFILL COOLANT. I HOPE THIS HELPS FROM RUSTY AT RVANS@NETZERO.NET

Mitshubishi VS-6041 No picture, sound ok


It has been my experience with that model mitsubishi that the usual culprit is loss of vertical sweep. If the beams in the picture tubes stops moving up and down this is detected by the micro processor and the video is blanked, but the set is not shut down. The usual cause of loss of vertical sweep is bad solder connections on the deflection yokes or a failed vertical output IC.

Picture is fuzzy and color seems faded




Sounds like your coolant in the tubes need to be repalced. This is a common problem as the set gets older. Check with www.TvRepairKits.com for the supplies and instruction guide.

No picture but noice


Its possibly a defective vertical output IC as that can cause the picture tubes to blank out and volume will audio will remain.
