Question about Philips 9P6040C 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

White objects (especially text) on a black background produce a white halo effect around the white lettering. When playing a PS3 game I noticed that the blue color appeared black, as though I had no blue gun operating. Please help!

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. 

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.

My color keeps going in and out , sometimes its red and sometimes its blue, what could be causing this problem


You are describing one of two types of problems:

1. Red and blue lines around objects and lettering.

2. Background of picture turns reddish or blue (a black and white image will tell you if this is the case.)

Both are fixable but number two should require less than 15 minutes and no parts.

Number one is different: Which best describes your issue?

Hitachi projection hdtv has 3d effect and bowed shape


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

Green "halo" around the bright white images


I have a Samsung HCM5535W rear projection TV that had pretty much the exact same problem-- a green halo around bright white images. I researched it on the net, and determined the most likely problem was with the convergence STK-ICs, or the convergence board. I bought a replacement board with the STK ICs and installed it, but no luck, the problem persisted. I decided to mess with the manual focus adjustment on the green crt (i was seeing a green halo), and that fixed it. As it turns out, no replacement parts were necessary to fix the problem in the first place. Hope this helps somebody out there.
