Question about a Phillips 50

Hello... I'm a troubleshooting trainer for in a contact center in Florida. I'm hoping to get some help with a television that we are having issues with.

I've been told that there is an issue with contaminated coolant in one of the picture tubes, specifically, the blue one. This was confirmed when I looked at the tube and say the spotted haxy look on it.

In reference to the was suggested that a qualifed tech would need to look at the issue. I'm learning by experience in my new postion, so any help would really be appreciated. I need to know if it's just the picture tubes that would need to be ordered or if there is another solution for this. The TV in question belongs to a customer that purchased it in '01. I have all the info for the TV if/when you need it.

Thanks a whole bunches!

All thats required is for the coolant to be changed you dont have to change the Tube as a new tube wont include the lens coolant assembly or coolant. So just change the coolant in the green and blue red doesnt get affected and you will be fine.

My phillips tv 50 plasma hd can't show picture


Problem is in either power supply or - my bet - the Y-Sustain board.

The Y-Sustain is a relatively large board out of which go connections to the side of the display; it's therefore closer to either the left or the right side of the display, has at least one rather large heat sink on it and fat power cables connecting it to the main power supply.

Often there are fuses on that board - one or more. Check those.

if they are blown you can try to replace them, but expect them to blow again - usually the whole board needs to be replaced.

hope that help out......

Red Picture on My Rear Projection TV Phillips

Hello traci061882,

This might be an indication of defective CRTs (Cathode Ray Tubes). I would first check to see if the Green and Blue CRTs were functioning or have other issues such as coolant leakage (do visual inspection). Anything other then this will require you to contact a qualified TV repair Technician to troubleshoot the problem. I would suggest for starters that the technician perform a test on the CRTs with a CRT tester, This is the best way to do this it will cut to the possible cause right away, if the CRTs can be rejuvenated, at least you will have about two to three more years of use out of the TV before the CRTs are completely gone. However if the tubes are not the problem then the technician will have to troubleshoot the circuitry the connects to the CRTs.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Seomthing you wrote before

You just need to drain and replace the fluid in the tubes. Its not easy but it can be done by a DIY if they have a service manual.
Check for instuctions.

The bulb recently burnt out. Need to replace it.

Your set doesnt have a bulb. Its a crt projection unit. Is the set completely dead? If so troubleshooting the power supply is needed. If the audio works but no picture, then the deflection/HV circuits will need troubleshooting. Let me know if I can assist you further.
