I have a Philips 28PW6515-05 flat screen TV.
For sometime it had two colour related problems.
1. Until few days back it used to start fine but after running for about half-an-hour a fluctuating pinkish tint used to appear on the screen. Tapping of chassis appeared to reproduce and fluctuate this effect. The tint used to vanish when the TV is turned off for about 10 or so minutes.
One day I did not turned the TV off and the picture turned pinkish, then greenish before finally covering the screen permanently with pinkish purple colour with thin horizontal zigzag strips (from top to bottom). Strips moves only slightly.
Screen selection button appear to change screen dimensions (wide screen etc.) but channel change etc. appear to make no difference. I even tapped all circuit board (with plastic rod and tv ON) but no effect on this purplish/ pinkish screen. There is no sound either.
I have looked on all circuit boards, every thing appear fine and all solders looks healthy.
Any clue if it recoverable and how?
Any help will be appreciated.

You have a bad connection on the CRT board thats mounted on the end of the picture tube it sounds like, or the socket on that board that plugs into the TV set is intermittant or has a bad solder connection on it. Good Luck

Check all your TV inputs and the devices there connected to .wiggle them watching for the picture to come back.try resetting any devices connected to your TV 1 by one until you can resolve the issue if not the problem could be with your TV
This problem is known as image retention and is a problem with the PDP. Turn on the set when you see these spots and see if they appear on the image too. If they persist, then its time to use your warranty to get a replacement.
i had same problem.thought the tube or r light had gone.i looked internet & saw it could be 1 of many problems.simplest solution was colour saturation was wrong.i turned saturation down to -14 & hey presto it worked
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.
The unit should be under warranty. What you're describing is not normal and I would attempt to get a replacement from the place of purchase or take the unit to an authorized repair center. Below is the Philips support page for your unit. You can check warranty status as well as request repair.
