Philips Rear Project TV with HD Inputs

Hi, not sure how old this set is but given to me when my daughter brought a new home they left this TV behind. The only problem is the picture colours are dull. I have reset it to the factory setting restore but still no good. Could you please tell me the possible cause an if it is expensive to repair. My TV is in need to have the fuild in the tubes cleaned out. Is that costly? or is that something that an averge Joe can do?

It will cost about 600.00 to have a repair shop do it. However you can get the repair kit at the following link which has the coolant and a step by step instructional CD with pictures. Just click on the repair kit catagory, they have the CD available by itself or you can get the entire coolant change kit.
Here is the link.

Terminals and Connections Dual HDMI digital inputs with HDCP (High Definition Content Protection) offer an uncompressed solution to the transmission and display of high definition video and audio content. All JVC HD-ILA TVs also include dual auto sensing component video inputs, assuring the best possible picture quality whether a viewer is using DTV, D-VHS or DVD, and three S-Video (two rear, one front) inputs and four AV inputs (three rear, one front).

Mitsubishi VS-60805 Rear Projection won't operate in HD mode with Cable Box


Since this is an older first generation (1999) HD TV it may not be compatible with newer HDTV receivers because the standards back then were different - Make sure the HD cable box is plugged into the HD component inputs on the back of the TV (not the DVD inputs) and that the menu setting on the TV is set to DTV (not RGB) video. This TV will only accept 480i and 480p signals on the DVD input. Also the HDTV input will only accept 480i,480p and 1080i (it will not work with a 720p signal,make sure your cable box is not set to that mode)

How to hook up convertor to analog tv


It would really help to know what brand of converter (set top box) you are installing but I can provide some general information. Be sure to connect everything before applying power. On the rear of the box, you have two types of connectors. If your RCA TV is old, you can connect a cable from the ANTENNA OUT F connector to the antenna F connector on the rear of the TV. Connect an antenna to the ANTENNA IN F connector on the rear of the box. Set the box to send output to channel 3 or 4, whichever is not used in your area. Apply power to the TV and the box and tune the TV to the channel (3 or 4) you selected on the box. If your RCA TV is new enough to have inputs for left and right audio and video, you can connect a 3-conductor RCA cable between the appropriate outputs of the box and the corresponding inputs on your TV. The picture quality will be better the second way. Once you are up and running you can use the channel search feature of the remote for the box to locate HD channels

Hi-Def?


Yes, it is HD TV ready but you must have a set top box from your cable or dish company that provides a Hi Def signal. The inputs must also be connected with the YRB cable. Only certain channels on my box are HD. The screen is so large that HD isn't nearly as impressive as some of the smaller models but it is still HD. I also have the 53FDX10B.

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.

Sony 57 Inch XBR 2001


I don't have the XBR, but on my sony, using the cable box remote, I had to go into menu/display/etc. and mark the 1080i, 720p, and 480i settings. you usually get a "if you can see this" comment if your tv accepts the settings. for standard tv i set the screen to normal, and when the upper channels go to HD, they auto go to full screen. Sounds like you are using the component cable, and also make sure you are on the video port of remote, and the the TV input. The above worked for mine. Hope it helps.
