Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The issue is with the failed convergence (STK) ICs which needs tobe replaced. It’s not a difficult job if you want to do this yourself, you should require some basic knowledge about soldering-resoldering components. To start with you’ll have to open the back of the unit and then replace the ICs(STK ICs) which are located behind the black heat sink and also check the resistors as if they are short the ICs might blow again after sometime. Please check this picture:

There are repair kits available which includes repair instructions with the parts, if you want to do it yourself, you can buy and repair it yourself. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

What is model number of your Philips tv? I assume it is rear projection tv that has 3 picture tubes inside to project picture on front screen and colors gone bad due to convergence output chips failure that needs to be replaced by qualified tv repairman, local tv repair shop will help you to get tv fixed.
Thanks.

    Yes, I'm here,
    If tv picture is just out of focus then clean its lenses, projection mirror that will improve picture quality.
    and if tv shows 3D type picture then it is convergence output chips failure problem and repair will cost you $250 or so

Thats the screen controls. To adjust it turn the color level down to zero, Then adjust the 3 knobs by balancing them to where the best black and white picture is acheived. Then turn the color level up and that should do it. Just be careful not to turn the settings too low or the CRTs will refuse to light after the set gets turned off. If that happens you will need to turn each adjustment up a little and the CRTs will relight then you will need to adjust it more. If you cannt get a good black and white picture you will need to replace the Coolant in the CRts.

Phillips Magnavox 60 inch Projection Tv


That model is famous for having bacterial contamination in the CRT coolant causeing halos, and dim pictures with bad overall color issues. You can look into the lens of the CRTs when the set is laying and if the coolant looks cloudy or has any growth there you will notice it right away, and changing the coolant will restore color, clarity and brightness.
