I have a Phillips 60 inch HDTV and it is having color problems. We have tried to adjust the color by placing the blue plus signs on the red ones but we are not able to get the blue plus signs to move on top of the red. We are able to get the green and yellow plus signs to line up but not the blue and red. We have moved the TV on one place in our home to another and a day later we sart having this problem. Do you have any idea what could be wrong and is it to costly to correct it. The TV is only 3 1/2 years old. Any advised would be great.
Thanks A Bunch!!!!

Thats sounds like the classic sign of CRT coolant needing to be replaced you can get the phillips CRT coolant kit from www.tvrepairworld.com and it comes with the coolant for all 3 CRTs and the instructions
My guess is that you're not missing the color it just appears muted... That problem is a common one in both the 50 and 60 inch models. And if you change video mode with nothing hooked up you'll see a faint color where none should be...
That's simply dust in the optical block on one of either the red, blue or green lcd panel. Wipe it down with a non-linting cloth and a "light" amount of windex and you're back in business...
But check it out by switchin through the video modes with nothing hooked up.. The faint color you see if the lcd panel that's having the most problem and the one that's muting your green.
Thats the screen controls. To adjust it turn the color level down to zero, Then adjust the 3 knobs by balancing them to where the best black and white picture is acheived. Then turn the color level up and that should do it. Just be careful not to turn the settings too low or the CRTs will refuse to light after the set gets turned off. If that happens you will need to turn each adjustment up a little and the CRTs will relight then you will need to adjust it more. If you cannt get a good black and white picture you will need to replace the Coolant in the CRts.
most likely scenario is that the coolant in the CRTs need replacement very common problem with phillips magnavox TVs, The picture will get hard to focus and the color will lose its intensity. You can get a coolant replacement kit for phillips at the following link under the repair kit category. The kit contains all the coolant needed and a CD with step by step instructions on how to do the repair. Heres the link. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
Tint would be the control that will control the color balance, but this sounds like it may be deeper then that. Turn your color all the way down so that you have a black and whit picture. If the picture is still yellow then you have a problem with the blue picture tube.
Sounds like your component cables may have come off its contact point. Check to see if your cables have become loose. Pushing them back in place should take care of that but check at the source output and the TV's input. Red Green Blue, when ever one of these 3 come out of contact the TV will produce a color hue relevant to what color remains in contact, looking faint and discolored. If you do find a loose cable connection, inspect the contact ends and squeeze lightly to restore a snug fit but don't do it to hard or you may damage the prongs.
