Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV
Your problem may related to the green output or driver stage in your tv. Usually green calour is not tranmitted, only blue and red colour informatein are comming from transmitters. Green colour information is regenerated inside the tv by matrix network. If the matrix get damaged no green colour will be displayed. To check first; whether the TV colour picture tube's green gun is right or not. For that you must connect a resistor of value more than 470k 2W, to the green cathode of the picture tube base to earth. The connection should be done causiously, not for a long time. It is advised to do in intermittantly with just touches. When you touch the green cathode with the resistor with one side of it earthed, a green flash must come on the crt. You can do this test for red and blue too. If there is no green flash, or light picture tube may be faulty. It is a very rare case. You must check the volltages of the other two cathodes [red and blue]. The voltage at green cathode must be almost the same as other two.
Just check the green output transistor for open. If it is open, voltage at green cathode will be high. Also check the base voltge of the green output transistor. It should be around 2.5vDC. You can compare the base voltages of the other two transistors with green drive base voltage. If there is no base voltage, the fault should be in the matrix section. It is inside an Ic. Philips usually uses TDA series Ics in chroma section. Check the Ic pin voltages according to service manual and try to rectify the fault. It needs a technical knowledge and skill.
