Re: tilted tv screen
The complete convergence for the Philips projection sets usually requires a clear plastic overlay which fits over the screen and has many precisely spaced black dots. The remote is then used to enter the service mode and converge all 3 colors onto the dots, and then the settings are stored in an EPROM IC. This should only be done by someone with experience with the Philips sets.

Its an easy adjustment but it requires you to work around the deflection yoke on the neck of the picture tube. Above the yoke is a red connector that is carrying 30,000 volts then on the yoke itself you have wires that are connected to the horizontal and vertical circuits that can carry up to a 1200 volt pulse. So this alignment is not for anyone but a technician. I personally would leave the tilt until you can have a technician touch it up for you. Take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...
If the tilt is not that bad, I would leave it be. The reason is yes you can straighten the tilt out, but it requires a mechanical alignment to all 3 CRT's then you will have to align the convergence on all 3 as well. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you.
Yes, you do need to set up the convergence in order to get the picture geometry correct. the antenna and maybe some other settings will need to be restored through the appropriate user interface screens. You will need your owners manual for a guide.
no its not true, you can lay them flat to move, it sounds like the convergence is out of whack, download the owners manual and redo the convergence manually for the red and blue, then go back and do the same for the multi point convergence for the red and blue, also if the color looks muted or flat, the projector lenses might need to be cleaned as well as the mirror in side of the unit.... very easy to do, just use caution and DO NOT SPRAY ANY LIQUIDS INSIDE THE UNIT.... spray the cleaning rag outside the unit the wipe off the mirror and lenses....i got this same TV free from craigs list here in pa, put a new mirror in because the original was shattered and re did the convergence and this TV pic is AWSOME.... very crisp and clear...hope this helps you
I have an older Toshiba 36inch. My manual has a topic called Tilt correction. This procedure will compensate for any local magnetic field differences which cause the image to tilt. My topic is listed in the Index under "T". See if your manual has this.
