Question about Philips 51PW9303 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Aura around the edges.

Hi everyone. I was wondering if someone could solve my problem. I was recently given a 51 inch tv and when I turn it on, the white is way to bright! I've tried adjusting the brightness and all of that but still nothing. Someone please help. Also does anyone notice an increase in their electric bill from this tv? I just got mine and was just wondering. Thanks for the help.

First disconnect power and remove rear cover look to see if any dust has settled on tubes. I think on that model you can remove screen frame by removing speaker grill, remove a few screws and then pullin forward on screen frame. Then screen w/ brackets will slide forward exposing tubes and mirror. This will allow you to look down in tubes with power on and see if any debris has grown in coolant chamber. This will tell you if you need coolant replaced, or if you need adjustments and/or circuit board work. Do not try to do adjustments if tubes are cloudy. Just have coolant replaced and the set will look like new. Good luck, Russmann.

Hi, have a 50 inch rear projection Mitsubishi. The problem is that the picture is curved and some of the words around the edges are doubled. Its most noticeable when watching sports because the score board...


power transistors in the convergence circuits on this series TV go bad after several years, making the wavy lines around the edge of the screen and 'doubling' of the edges of the text in varied colors which do not converge. Professional repair is required unless you are brave enough to tackle the project yourself and follow some rather simple instructions, buy a few tools from Radio Shack, and save yourself about $500 bucks...which I did on my own 42" Panasonic rear projection set.

Dull almost Foggy picture.


you need to take the screws out from around the screen in the back, on edges, go to the front and take the screws out from the bottom of the screen, should be 4 or 6 in the front, pick up on the screen and lift off, only about 8 pounds, now clean the little mirror in front of the projector, and clean the dust off the projector lence, that will solve it, iv had to do this on about 50 of thease tv's

Dear AJ,

To be very Honest, i am not well conversant with Rear Projection TVs.

I suggest that you try with someone else.
Again from my personal point of view, i am of the feeling that itcan be fixed, and pretty easily. There must be a "Service Mode" which can be accessed by the remove, and then the Convergence Settings / Adjustments can be corrected.

But, I shall make additional enquiries and and let you know.

Cheers

Screen TV shuts down


Sounds like an electronic part (a resistor, a diode, etc) that stops conducting electricity when it heats up to a certain point. Maybe it physically loses contact on its circuit board due to a bad solder, or the part itself is internally defective. Unfortuantely you'll need an expensive professional repairman to diagnose it. TVs have high voltages, ya know, and can kill you if you go mucking around inside.
