Question about Philips Magnavox 9P6034C 60" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

I own a Philips Magnavox 55P8288A Projection television. The picture is dull (dark) and a friend suggested I get a new bulb. Also, the remote no lionger functions, so I bought one of those, too. Now I cannot find instructions on how to install the bulb. The generic "instructions" I found do not apply -- taking off the front panel reveals only the speakers and a solid piece of fiberboard. Where, please, can I find instructions??? Thank you. ~ Michael in Phoenix

This sounds Like the the coolant for your piture tube has become cloudy and needs replacement (usually blue or green tube - thats why the image seems ovrely red).It's a big job (labour wise) since completee dissassembly is required ($200-300). It can be done youreself - check out TVrepairkits.com to get the coolant and instructions.
You can confirm that this is the problem by dissassembling the unit to the point where you can view the face of the CRT's (red green and blue) directly.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

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

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Hello, My picture has gotten very dim and dark. I was told my bulbs need cleaning. How can I do this by myself or do I have to hire someone to do this for me. Thank you, Debbie


Its more likely that the CRT coolant needs replacement. Thats vert famous for that model. The CRT coolant gets messed up and the CRTs cant project the image properly so it gets a dull picture and the color tints are wrong.

Coloring going out on big screen


the tubes go for around 300 each and you have 3 of them, But you dont need new tubes. Change the CRT coolant and you will see your color will come back and so wont the clarity.

What is model number? A magnavox 51MP392 is a CRT rear projection type and doesn't use a bulb (unless he was refering to the CRT's as bulb). And they are prohibitively expensive.
