You need to change the coolant in the CRTs blue is first to go followed by the green, red doesnt seem to get affected, but this is a common fault in phillips magnavox rear projections.

My phillips 55pp9401 looks orange and purple , heres a picture of what it looks like, i tried the intellisense and it does nothing. http://palmsprings.craigslist.org/ele/1679632114.html


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. 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, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith 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 - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

I have a glow or a shadow around everything I watch...I tried the converse blue but i dont know if i did it right bc it didnt work...how can I fix that?


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. Notice how dull the colors are and how white the screen looks. The screen may also look red, orange, dull, etc.

60" Projection Tv - Approx 6 yrs old


Your CRT fluid needs to be replaced. After many years the crt cooling fluid gets a ton of alage built up in the tubes.  This will cause the screen to get a halo effect or get darker.

You only need to replace the fluid in the blue and green tubes.

Philips big screen projection tv


sounds like the Convergence ICs are getting ready to go. Does it appear as a outline almost 3D? If so its convergence if its more like a glowing halo its coolant in the blue CRT that needs changing.
