Seeing the blue green and red lights through the screen

I recently moved and when i got my tv (a 60 in. rear projection) set up at my new place, i am seeing the red blue and green lights through the screen and its rainbow-ing all over my screen. My grandpa said maybe the mirror that the lights reflect off of had slipped down during the move. ??? any ideas on how to fix this or what it may be????

I hate to be the one to say it, but it sounds like the mirror broke in transit. I've had several where this happened without the person handling it noticed, or at least said they didn't. Usually on a 51" magnavox you must first have a star driver or a star bit. For some reason they decided to change from the standard when building these. First, pullthe screen saver and frame towards you with both hands. There are clips that hold it in place and it will pop back in place easily. Then remove all star screws around screen frame and slide out carefully. Screen can slide out of frame so hold on from bottom and top. This will reveal the tubes and mirror. Most screens and mirrors are 100.00-300.00 so use caution not to scratch anything. Good luck, Russmann.

Screen problems on a sony 60" widescreen tv


if some area of the screen even with the color set at zero is green go to an unused video input and look---this model is well known for red green or blue discoloration of what appears to to be the screen but is actually the optical light engine which projects the picture into a mirror which projects it on the screen.

attached is a typical light engine, note the round lens to the left , that is the optical unit that projects the picture into the mirror at the rear of the set which puts it on the screen----the engine is the most expensive part in the set so, .........

I have a large yellow spot on my screen..... Will changing the bulb fix this - or is there another remedy?


Your set uses red, blue, and green lcd panels to produce your colors. The lamp provides the illumination. What has happened is the blue lcd panel has been damaged in the area you are seeing the yellow. The fix for this is to have the optical block (also known as the engine) replaced. This is a very expensive part,... you may want to move on to a flat panel tv.

You have a projection TV - basically a red, green, and blue spotlight is shown onto the back of an opaque screen that creates the color picture you see. The spotlights you are seeing is common for a TV of this vintage and type.

According to the user's manual, you should ideally be sitting no closer than 10 feet to the screen.

Sitting closer to the screen may enhance the phenomenon you are experiencing.

Philips 60 inch rear projection screen is wacky!!


Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • 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.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


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.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

My phillips model 60pp920217f has a horrible picture...no green to the color


The green CRT coolant has congealed thats whats giving you the green halos. Change the coolant in the green and blue and your set will be fine. red is never affected so the red coolant should be fine.

Blue Color spots on all pictures


Call a technician, sounds like an Integrated Circuit problem and would cost you about $250.
