Hello linda, hi, I dont think the remote or manual can help the color issue problem, the tv needs to be looked at by a qualified technician. If the TV is a tube type, there are magnets on the neck that needs alignment, this alignment is done while the TV is ON. so high voltage risk are likely. keep out and call service.

The problem with my Phillips 9p6034 9102 with chasis number ptv 835 is that when you look at the screen straight on you can see the red green and blue lamps. When you stand up and look down at the screen...


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV2_bing.gif may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture

  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

Just replace the two STK392-110 Convergence ICs and that will correct the convergence. The small pic if its centerd in the center of the screen is usually caused by the opto-couplers being bad

You may have had another problem if the screen was wavey. This is typicaly caused by the opto chip. Check www.magnavoxhelp.com for more details.

sgtdar, list the model & chassis number (located on back of tv), if set is old the universals won`t work because as more newer sets come out they delete the older ones because the chip in the remote will only hold so many codes, BMW Rider
