Question about Philips Magnavox 55P9271 55" Rear Projection Television

55' Magnavox Big Screen

I was wondering about a 55' Magnavox Big Screen that we just purchased. The people we bought about it from said the projectors needed to be adjusted, they also said they had thought it was an easy adjustment, easy enough for you to do yourself with easy instructions, now is this the case or is it really an expensive fix? We haven't fully purchased it so we can still get out of the deal, but it's a good deal, do we just buy it and fix it or get it fixed, or not buy it. By the way it's about 6 years old. Thanks

Projection televisions do NOT generally offer easy DIY (do it yourself) solutions to problems. If they are telling you that the projectors need to be adjusted, you probably are better off buying a television elsewhere because they don't sound like they know what they are talking about. If the television uses CRT technology, you may notice color halos and bad color mixes if the red, green, and blue projection tubes are not aligned. Alignment should (in most cases) be done by a professional.

Have you turned on the television and seen for yourself what the problems are? If you know of a good repair center, get a quote from them after you have seen the issue(s) first hand, then make your final purchasing decision. It is terribly difficult to diagnose without seeing the condition of the television and images it produces in person.

It depends on how much they want for the TV.
The adjustments could be a simple fix by replacing the convergence ICs on the TV, if you are seeing double images or the colors are distorted.
Just out of curiosity, how much is the seller asking for the TV?

The image on screen is almost a dirty yellow colour and not sharp at all. Also where do I purchase new filters from?


Hi,
A yellowing image, especially if it's circular in shape indicates the BLUE LCD polarizer is burned from overheating or just a lot of hours on it & it needs to be replaced to make the yellow go away. You can purchase a new filter from hundreds of online retailers. Just do a search on Google for "NEC VT595 Filter"
REPAIRS:
If you're interested I do replace the polarizer filter panels. I have parts in stock for the NEC VT595. The repair quote is $50 & if you have it repaired the $50 is put toward the repair. The repair will include cleaning all the LCD panels, filters, lenses, etc. on the inside which will bring back the original sharp picture again. If you like you can email me at prmhelp@earthlink.net for more information on having it repaired.
Thank You,
Jim Peters

Is there any way to check the bulb life on a Sanyo PLC-XU30 projector? I know some projectors have an option on the menu screen which lets you know how long the bulb has left. Its just that i bought it off...


on my XU 55 the trick to read the lamp hours is to press and hold down the power button in about 20 seconds when the projector is turned on. there will come a window in the upper left corner that tells about total hours and lamp hours. the window will disappear quite fast, so one might need to do it twice.
