    I'M NOT REAL HAPPY ABOUT THE SOLUTION SINCE THIS TV IS JUST 1 YEAR

    OLD. IT SHOULD NOT HAVE SOMETHING LIKE THIS WRONG AFTER 1 YEAR.

    I'M NOT REAL HAPPY TO PAY $9.99 TO FIND OUT IT HAS TO GO SOMEWHERE

    TO BE REPAIRED. I WON'T BUY ANOTHER PHILIPS.

It is a convergence problem , contact a repair technician and have convergence service setup procedure done, if this does not fix it, than one of the convergence ICs has probably blown and must be replaced

    You have a convergence problem, inside your tv there are two chips that manage convergence, one of them had probably blown. To test them a techniciam should be contacted, he will take apart tv and test the two pico fuses at the base of the ICs, and eventually replace the ICs, after this a complete convergence setup procedure must be performed.

    Well, you had been really unlucky, as the guaranty offered by Philips last one year and expired 7th of june, less than one month ago. If you still have the purchase receipt, you can try contacting Philips, claim with them that TV went broken one month ago and see if you can get a warranty extension on your tv.
    If you let me know your country I can find Philips customer service contact in your area.

I have three black circles, and some color streaking at he bottom inch of my RCA, LCD tv


that is usually caused by cleaning the screen with windex the windex runs down the screen bewteen the screen and plastic frame and actually seeps inside between the screen layers. Eventually it may go away by itself if the circles are not too bad but in most cases the damage is permanent.It can also be an issue called screen delamination which there is no fix for.
