I have a phillip manavox projection tv that is a friend of mine, it was made in the year 2000.i do not have the model no# on hand. the problem is that i try to adjust the color in the television, but the color will always adjust to the extreme. i can never get the red out of it. it has red ghosts in most of the channels, and some just be blurry. i can never seem to get the color crisp. i also have tried to use the menu and try to get the color right but it seems that none of the items work. the tint, brightness,color or any of the items seem to work well. they work a little but not much. when i adjust the color from the back it seems to be too much darkness or whiteness. also what are the top row of turn knobs for. i know that the bottom three are for red blue and green color but what are the top three for.

Re: color will not adjust on projection tv
From the sounds of it, you have a convergence problem. This can be fixed in the home without too much trouble if you feel you are comfortable with soldering. Can you please post the mdoel number? That way I can provide you with the parts that will need attention. Also please indicate whether or not you wish to attempt this repair yourself. With this additional information I can either guide you through the repair or give you a ballpark cost for the repair.

This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets.
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.
The other common problem is cloudy lens fluid. After many years the coolant in the blue and green lens will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, bright white, etc. You may even see halos around video.
You can see some example photos and find a solution here on Fixya.
Remove front bottom panel behind it is a small black control box top controls are focus controls for R/G/B and Bottom 3 controls are your screen drives adjust one at a time turn off G/B adjust red first,then Do Green and Blue fter adjusting focu to each tube leave them set then adjust screen drive turn color off adjust RGB for a Black and white picture get as close as you can then turn color back If after doing this you still have blurry looking picture look down into Tubes you should be able to see picture clearly in each one if you cannot see picture then projection Fluid need to be changed out.

There is no bulb or color wheel in a standard projection set. The standard projection set has convergence output IC's that correct the 3 colors around the edges of the picture. If one of these IC's burns out then one color may sag toward the center at the top. The defective convergence IC will have to be replaced and the convergence circuits realigned and that should be done by a qualified tech.
