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 ?.


dennismonid,

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.

Good Day,
Your Optical Engine is going bad. Call a Sony Authorized Service Center. Most are covered even beyond the warranty period.

Good Luck, BIG IRISH.

Inside of your TV their is a fluid that keeps the tubes cool. Over the years this fluid will turn cloudy and cuase the screen to look dull, bright white, have halos, etc. You can get the fluid over the internet from various sources or your can get a complete kit including repair instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com.

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.
