Question about Philips 55P8341 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Philips 55P8341 red pic

I may have the same problem with mine, I can still see the picture, but it is all red. Could I just need to chage the CRT fluid in the blue and green? I change the fluid on a similar tv and doing so took care of the white halo's. When I go into the red convergance, I can see the cross, but when I go into the blue all I can see is a light blue blob..... Makes me thing the the fluid is contaminated. Also don't have any sound, but I don't think that those two problems are related.

Need the default coloring for the Philips 55P8341 tv


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

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. This is called convergence.

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,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with 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 - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Poor color


You may need fluid change. CRT gets dirty fluid, must be changed after long time of use.
