Color will not adjust on projection tv

I have a phillip manavox projection tv that is a friend of mine, it was made in the year 2000.i do not have the model no# on hand. the problem is that i try to adjust the color in the television, but the color will always adjust to the extreme. i can never get the red out of it. it has red ghosts in most of the channels, and some just be blurry. i can never seem to get the color crisp. i also have tried to use the menu and try to get the color right but it seems that none of the items work. the tint, brightness,color or any of the items seem to work well. they work a little but not much. when i adjust the color from the back it seems to be too much darkness or whiteness. also what are the top row of turn knobs for. i know that the bottom three are for red blue and green color but what are the top three for.

From the sounds of it, you have a convergence problem. This can be fixed in the home without too much trouble if you feel you are comfortable with soldering. Can you please post the mdoel number? That way I can provide you with the parts that will need attention. Also please indicate whether or not you wish to attempt this repair yourself. With this additional information I can either guide you through the repair or give you a ballpark cost for the repair.

I have a phillips model 60PP9202 that will not power on at all. Is this unit equipped with any fuses?

The fuses are probably good as you can check...The big solution is you have a weak or bad small signal board. About the size of a deck of cards, located in the back on the left hand side, you will see this when you open the back cover. Try this, leave your tv unplugged for a few days or even a week or two. Then plug it in and see if it will come on....if so the answer has been said. Be patient my friend.

I have red power light blinking,tv wont turn on

I'm not sure of a Toshiba TV but my Phillips and a friend of mine's Mitsubishi TV do this very same thing when the system has detected a voltage spike. Usually this is caused by static discharge (let me guess you have carpeting). Unplug the unit and hold the power button for 10 seconds and leave it unplugged for 5 minutes. Then plug her back in and give it a whirl.

Give us an update.

My rear projection television looks like it is 3D

replace the lamps and then run the synch routine from the main menu. unfortunitly with the expense of the lamps and the low price to replace projection tvs it might not be worthwhile to fix but just replace.

HINT wait till after new years, LCD large screen tv sold about 35% of what was expected during xmas so they will be real real cheap after the 1st of the year

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.
