Re: green dot in middile of my screen
The green dot in the center sounds like a burn mark on one or more of the picture tubes inside the set, and the curved lines are telling me that you have a problem in the convergence circuits. The blue haze around everything white tells me you either have a lot of dust build up on the lens over the CRTs, or your picture tube(s) are very weak. If this set is over about 12 years old, I would replace it. I doubt if you will be able to get the green dot out of the picture without changing the tubes which would be VERY expensive.

The first mistake was the Philips TV. They are the worst tv. They are constantally needed to be updated. If you have warranty, I would recommend you taking it back or calling philips customer service and getting your tv repaired or replaced.
I have 50" philips magnavox big screen. I recently started to have a problem with the edges of my tv. They became blurry. the center of the tv is clear and the edges are blurry. what should I do to fix this problem.
If your model number is 55PP935217 you dont have a ballast. You have a rear projection with 3 CRts . Please let me know if thats the correct model number and what your symptons are. I will be able to help you get what ever part youre needing.
i suggest to have it check by a qualified service technician. there seems to be a problem with your crt (cathode ray tube). because inside this projection tv are 3 crt guns responsible for color red, green and blue, which only qualified technician can adjust it and replace if it is necessary.
