A friend of mine is giving me a 43 inch rear projection Phillips T.V. I do not have the model number yet. He said it works but that the color towards the top of the screen doesn't look right, otherwise he said it works fine. He's getting rid of it because he is a hi-tech kind of guy who now has Plasma tvs and no use for servicing this one. Its been sitting in his garage. Anyone have any ideas on what it might be? I've been told that the color wheel and the projector bulb have to be replace periodically, is that true and can a handy man do the job? Any Idea on cost? Asking a lot, trying to save any unnecessary grief.

Re: 43 inch phillips projection t.v
There is no bulb or color wheel in a standard projection set. The standard projection set has convergence output IC's that correct the 3 colors around the edges of the picture. If one of these IC's burns out then one color may sag toward the center at the top. The defective convergence IC will have to be replaced and the convergence circuits realigned and that should be done by a qualified tech.

Hi, check for any speaker switches around rear of set that may have been accidentally switched. Could potentially have a "hotel lock mode"
which some philips sets automatically entered after a set time (namely months) which limited volume settings. Your friendly local service technician may be able to help you out with that one
You will need to replace the convergence ICs and possibly the 6.8 ohm resistors. The Phillips DPTV305-DPTV345 convergence repair kit also works for your model. You can get the kit which also contains the CD with instructions from www.tvrepairworld.com
The convergence ICs and resistors need replacement. The DPTV305-345 convergence repair kit works for most Phillips rear projection Tvs. The kit contains the two ICs 12 resistors and the CD with detailed instructions http://www.tvrepairworld.com/
Try the power supply. Look on the one in your TV for the part number ; mine is PH3501705441. I ordered one from partstore.com and it was less than $60 shipped. Hope this helps, mine works fine now........and I have a 50P8342 chassis PTV 916
