If the color, brightness and contrast settings can't do it, it might be the problem of your picture tube. It is a common problem with modern projection t.v.'s. You can fix this by just replacing the picture tube.
If you can get a working picture tube, of an age old t.v, it would be the best thing you are searching for. Old picture tubes were of superb quality, but the newly produced one's are not so good in quality as well as clarity.

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.

I have a phillip magnavox big screen tv it works fine but the color is too dark i think i need a picture tube


If its the one indicated here or one like it :

The picture tube type (CRT) rear projection tubes require annual cleaning.

With set off and back removed locate the three large black lens atop the chassis--hard to miss them.

The are the red, green, and blue tubes and are your light source for the picture---------if dark and they are dirty or dusty the picture will be darker and not as sharp or clear as it once was..

spray some glass cleaner on a paper towel and wipe them clean.

Do not touch anything else in set and do it with set unplugged.

put back cover on and see if picture is noticeably improved; if so do it once a year or more if in a dusty place.

Let me know if you have questions.

I was wondering if u know y my mitsubishi tv wasnt showing a clear picture i replaced the lamp with new one but it still shows a dark picture


This may be a model that has two mirrors. Mitsubishi could tell you if this is the case.

Some idiot had the bright idea to have optical unit shine picture into tiny mirror which puts it into large mirror in back; problem is tiny mirror if there is at bottom and facing up, dust or dirt get on it and picture brightness will diminish up to 70% or more.

If model you own does have two mirrors, the front of the set with the screens will have to be removed to clean it, not real hard and takes 15 minutes.

If you can confirm it has two mirrors I can tell you step by step how to remove screen unit and resolve problem. Usually if tiny mirror dirty it will happen over time, picture will gradually get darker and dull looking.

Let me know if want instructions, the set either has two mirrors or it does not.

Color is too dark


Unplug the TV,remove the front panel to gain access to the CRT sockets - loosen the screws that hold the sockets to the necks of the CRT's - now unplug and replug each socket from each CRT - this will remove any dust resistance on the pins of the CRT's - after doing this, the brightness level should go up.
