You need to change the coolant in the picture Tubes blue and green are the first to show signs. Its a fairly easy proceedure if you get the phillips coolant replacement kit at the following link it comes with the coolant and the instructional CD with pictures so you can do the job yourself. Its listed under the repair kit catagory. Here is the link.

The picture has a blue glow around the screen characters ,also a yellow glow has started ??.Me thinks new TV ?.


Certainly a new TV would solve your problem but a cheaper solution would be to replace the convergence ICs for about $50.00 USD or have it done by a professional for about $150.00 USD. You did not mention the model so I can only guess that it is a crt unit and bad convergence by your description of the problem. If you want to try fixing it yourself I have a tip at

which will walk you through it as well as tell you where to get the parts.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

I'm on my second light engine, what is it that goes wrong with them? I have a blue glow in the center of my tv

If you have a blue glow,then that could be the color wheel has been chipped or shattered and blue is the only section remaining,not likely but very possible. If the color wheel by itself is not available for order as an OEM replacement part,then that may be why you were charged for a whole light engine.
