Check the convergence settings if necessary, try to check the bulb cause sometimes is getting weak. If you want to replace the bulb don't forget to reset the lamp hour meter. Let me know your feedback. Good day and God bless. Hope it helps.

The TV will provide an HD picture with a set top box connected to the HD input (AV4 or AV5). It does not have a digital tuner (only a NTSC analog tuner).

The manual is available here: http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/5/51pw9303/51pw9303_dfu_aen.pdf . See appendix B on page 58 for the specifications.

I hope this helps.

If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, greenish, or blueish or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Problem is going to be in the Green and Blue Tube ,you need to change the Coolant Fuild out and out in New,Philips is well known for having Bad Coolant fuild in the G/B Tubes.
With Back Off and TV on Look down inside of each Tube you should be able to see a Clear picture, in each Tube, If you do Not then you need to change out the coolant fuild.
You also have a Screen/Focus Control Block, it controls the Screen Drive and Focus to Each Tube R/G/B 3 controls on top and 3 below them. Top 3 should be for Focuse and Bottom 3 Screen Drive /Brightness to each Tube.
Now in order to aline for Correct Color you will need to adjust all 3 Tubes , Turn Color OFF in Menu then aline the Tubes untill you have a Black and white Picture ,Then go back to menu and turn Color on.

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.


Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.


Here are some options for you.


1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it under warranty?)


2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. The entire board costs around $250 right now because they are in high demand right now. They can be found at tv-part.com but supplies are limited. I would definitely shop around though.


3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.


This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.

I have a Tip/How TO tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. Here is the Link: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem. I'm working on uploading pictures to help guide people though the process as well. Let me know if I can do anything to help.


Hope this helps and if it does please rate it accordingly. Good luck.

I have seen this problem with other Fixya visitors and the solution predominantly is to replace the color wheel on the TV.
