My Roomates and I just picked up this TV and were warned about some color issues. The problem is that the picture is somewhat foggy and has a reddish tint. We tried playing with the color options but only could make it worse. Is there anything we can do to make the screen normal? Thank you in response to this message.

I have a white glow around all the white letters and just all the white colors in general. What do I do ?

If you have the following symptoms check the site www.TvRepairKits.com . They have a repair kit for this problem.
Screen shrinks and expands - may or may not correct itself after the TV warms up. After a few days, weeks, or months of having the shrinking/expanding problem you may loose all audio/video but the power light will remain lit!
Works on the following Philips Magnavox sets with chassis number
PTV835, PTV836, PTV840, PTV841, PTV842, PTV843, PTV844, PTV847, PTV853

My 55" Phillips Magnavox TV (9P5511C1) has a red "aura" in the middle of the screen. The picture has also lost it's crispness and appears dull. When adjusting the convergence the cross it not totally white; there is red showing through on all four points of the cross. Should I purchase a CRT Coolant Replacement Kit, or is it more likely a convergence chip problem?
Posted by bracket81 on
Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.
Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.
Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.
You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.
If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.
Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy
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.
Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.
TV set after fluid change
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.

We just got a 60" Philips Magnavox Projection TV that is about 7 years old. The screen is for the most part all orange/red but you can still see the picture. Can anyone tell what is wrong with it? And possibly tell me what it should cost to get this fixed? Thanks. a lot of red in the screen????
Posted by c-anita1 on
You can also check to see if you have bad fluid problems, by looking
down in your crt's with a flashlight when you unplug your set and see
if you can notice any particles that should not be there. Look at all
three and see if there is a difference. It should be clear, if not then
you need to change fluid and clean.
It sounds as if one of the picture elements (there are probably 3 for R-red G-green B-blue) has gone bad and it is most likely the green one. Sad to say it will probably cost you more to have it fixed than it would to buy a new TV. Most places will not even look at a TV for less than $85 or so, then they will add parts and labor... if they can even find parts.

my Magnavox 9P5511C102 color has faded any thing i can do to fix this?
Posted by iluvoldsko... on
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. To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as Tv Repair Kits to get a repair kit with instructions. Here is there link.
They have put together complete kits for most models that include the parts, step by step photo instructions, repair assistance, etc.

*CONVERGENCE SERVICE MODE PROCEDURES*
*Note: This procedure is required for all of the following geometry and
*Using the remote transmitter, enter the following seven-button sequence to
activate the convergence mode.*
* 06 - 25 - 97 - Menu (M)*
*The "Opening Menu" will appear offering choices:*
*Use Channel up/down to*
*Select a Channel with Video*
* Remote control key functions:*
* Use arrow up/down and left/right: Adjust Convergence*
* M: Advance "cross" location*
* Up, Down, Left, Right*
* 3: Exit Convergence*
* Status: Abort/Cancel Changes*
* M: Begin Convergence*
*Note: video information must be present to correctly adjust the
convergence. A signal source is required to lock the vertical and
horizontal sync. After entering the "convergence service mode" verify the
presence of a video source by confirming the presence of active audio (use
the volume up function on the remote). Use the channel up and down function
on the remote to select the desired tuning source.*
*Select item "M" from the first menu, the "Convergence Menu" will appear
featuring 5 possible selections.*
* Channel 3*
*1. green geometry*
*2. red To green Convergence*
*3. blue To green Convergence*
*4. green To red Convergence*
*5. green To blue Convergence*
* Status: Abort/Cancel Changes*
*CONVERGENCE TOUCH UP PROCEDURE*
*1. Enter the "convergence service mode" as described above in the
"convergence service mode procedure".*
*2. Select the desired color requiring adjustment. Note: Do not
select Green Geometry (1). This procedure is described under "Major
Convergence/Geometry Alignment. If Green Geometry is altered during this
procedure a "Major Convergence/Geometry Alignment" maybe required. *
*3. Cover the Output Lens of the single color presently NOT being
adjusted. Example: If you select Green to Red Convergence (4) cover the Blue
*4. The highlighted adjustment Icon (Cross) should be illuminated on
the middle left side of the screen. Make the necessary Convergence
Adjustments using the following Remote Keys:*
*· Use the Arrow Up ( ) to adjust the selected color up.*
*· Use the Arrow Down Key ( ) to adjust the selected color down.*
*· Use the Arrow Right Key (-) to adjust the selected color to the
*· Use the Arrow Left Key (+) to adjust the selected color to the
*5. Move to the next location to be converged. It is not required
that the full Convergence Sequence be followed while performing the
"Convergence Touch Up Alignment Procedure". The following alternate Remote
Keys allow for positioning of the Icon to the desired adjustment location:*
*· Key 2 on the Remote Transmitter will position the Adjustment
Icon upward on the screen.*
*· Key 8 on the Remote Transmitter will position the Adjustment
Icon downward on the screen. *
*· Key 4 on the Remote Transmitter will move the Adjustment Icon
to the Left.*
*· Key 6 on the Remote Transmitter will move the Adjustment Icon
to the Right.*
*6. Return to the "Convergence Service Menu" by selecting Key number
3 on the remote transmitter or by sequencing the Icon to the last adjustment
point at the lower right corner of the screen and pushing the Menu (M) Key
on the Remote Transmitter..*
*7. Repeat steps 1 through 6 for other required Convergence
*8. To Save the Adjustment completed in the last procedure,
Exit/Save the Convergence Service Mode by selecting Key 1 on the Remote
Transmitter. This forces the corrections to be written to the EEPROM on the
*Note: To save the convergence corrections made above you must exit the
convergence menu by selecting Exit/Save Data (1)*

chassis part # is PTV835 for model # 9P6034C103 serial # 39657034 mfg date 5/2000. The flyback was replaced Sunday. when tv is turned on it turns on very quiet. Two things are happening now. First, all the colors are out of line .I believe these could be adjusted somewhere. Two, the picture came back. At first it went full size then picture started shrinking and then big again for as long as I had tv on. At least two minutes as if there was something stopping the picture from going back to normal size. Perhaps, an IC chip or a resistor about to short out, maybe. The sound was good. Could you advise us of what or where is the cause of these or would we be able to determine by looking at the service manual and or schematics. We appreciate your help and expertise.

My Philips Magnavox 9P5511C102 color is faded and not clear.
The colors seem faded (off) tv is not clear, like is got static, and picture is shaky. I have tried to fix using the Main Menu already. Out of these I get a picture and sound. Please help and let me know how can I fix it.
I have lost my manuals too so where can I download them or get them.
Oh one more thing. I connected my older laptop and the screen is worse. The side turns inward, the screen is smaller like it needs to be adjusted and not clear at all. How can I fix this.
I appreciate all response to correct my tv even if I end up unable to connect a laptop.

I have a Magnavox PTV910. The picture is good but has a very noticeable RED tint to entire picture. The TV's color adjust does not fix the problem. I've seen where you check the color tubes, but it sounds complicated, is this something I can do at home? If so, how?
Posted by kenstaiger on
the coolant in the blue and green crts has congealed which is causing the red tube to become dominate. The coolant can be changed at home. You can get the phillips coolant replacement kit at the following link which contains the coolant and the CD with instructions.
