Magnovox 60 in rear projection TV

Our TV has operated for 7 or so years without problems. We are now noticing the picture is not as bright and our color is washed out. We are not sure if we should repair or replace the tv. Any suggestions? We would like to repair if feasible but will replace if nec.

This might be due to the CRTs going bad or at least having oxidation on their cathodes (which is common) what a TV tech can do is use a CRT rejunvenator to remove the oxidation and restore some of the tubes functionality. This will give you about 2-3 more years of viewing. You won't know until a tech can check it out.

Sony KDFE60a20 picture is not bright. We are losing sight of the picture due to it being so dark. Is this the lamp assembly or could it also be something else. TV is 5 years old.

Hi,
It is lamp that need to be replaced.
Lamp is not generating enough light to present bright picture on tv screen.
Lamp replacement is easy and written in user manual of tv.
Please buy Sony original lamp for good picture result in tv.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

I purchased a tv repair kit and replaced the convergence ic chips to fix my convergence problem. put everything back together and now, no picture. I tried magic focus and it works great, the colors are...

As per statement, "the magic focus works great, the colors are bright and aligned" it means the tubes are working ..you need feed a signal to see the picture...the tv video goes muted without signal

Phillips Magnavox 60 inch Projection Tv

That model is famous for having bacterial contamination in the CRT coolant causeing halos, and dim pictures with bad overall color issues. You can look into the lens of the CRTs when the set is laying and if the coolant looks cloudy or has any growth there you will notice it right away, and changing the coolant will restore color, clarity and brightness.
