Phillips Magnavox 9P6040 C104 tv color adjustment help

I have this tv but the white of the ice (watching hockey) is yellow and I can't seem to get the color adjusted right. The user guide I found online only has instructions to go through, which I did, but still the white isn't white and movies that are dark on a regular tv are black and I cant distinguish anthing in the picture. Is it just going bad and won't be able to adjust the color?

If you turn color off and stand back and examine the screen---if it is not black and white but yellow looking you have bad Glycol in the blue picture tube which is quite common.

Easy way to know for sure is with set on and rear cover removed peek with a small mirror at the three lens---don't touch anything with the set on===each tube red,blue, green should have a picture with the set on.

Likely you will find the blue one looks like a floodlight with little or NO image/picture.

SOURCE: blury picture, convergance problem

What you're describing is probably contaminated coolant in the crts. Between the outer part of the crt and the lens is a chamber filled with a coolant (ethyl-glycol) which can become contaminated and cause blurred picture. I'd strongly recommend taking this to a shop the procedure for changing these is a bit beyond the layman level.
Remove Crt assembly. Mark the Crt lens position for accurate reasssembly.
Mark the centering ring's postions to make easier realignment and carefully remove lens assembly by removing the four torx screws. Keep Crt assembly vertical so you won't leak the fluid...
Remove the inner lens by carefully prying up on the edge of it.
Dump out the fluid in the sink and wash the face of the Crt and chamber with water to remove all the fungus and crud. Flush the chamber with isopropyl alcohol to kill all the fungus and dry thoroughly.
Reassemble inner lens and outer lens and tighten all four torx screws.
Remove side filler plug and fill chamber with approved new Crt coolant, reinstall and converge.
Repeat this procedure for the other two Crts. It will need this done whether it looks clear or not !! The green and blue Crts in this unit are prone to this failure.
Hope this helps
Bill

The problem is an aging tv. The small signalboard needs reworked. Send it to PTS elctronics for repair. It will be guaranteed work. Tell your local tech.

I have some picture distortion - pink fuzzy color where white should be (like on hockey ice). I'm trying to determine if the t-con board is to blame and if I might fix it easily


Hi Bill.

I don't see a specific model for your TV, but have owned a rear projector system before. There is usually a sub-menu where you can do fine alignment of the Red, Green, and Blue projectors to get rid of the pink fringe. There is generally a white crosshair at center screen where you can fine align the three colors to get rid of the fringing, and sometimes an advanced menu where there are crosses all over the screen that you can individually select and fine tune, (tweaking the different optical distortions of the individual projectors to overlap).

If the fringe is a big swath instead of a fine edge, or if a color is totally gone, then you may be talking power amp issues. For fine fringes, the adjustments usually work fine.

Hoping that helps!

After the dvd plays for like 10-15 minutes(when dvd player warms up?) all the colors on the screen turn to black, yellow and purple for the rest of the movie. What's wrong?


I gotta know more clearly about your question, i am going to explain in 'Guide Solutions'
Guide 1: Is it the color just cover the main grid? (Color cover like blocking the others, such as watching 70s TV shows, the colors blocked in black and white.)
Source 1: Audio input problems, your dvd audio input linked with three different 'rops', they are appeared to be push by pressure.
Solution 1: Determine more spaces to them!
Guide 2: Is it the color cover the photon grid? (Color cover at all pictures, each of them doesn't stand the other colors instead of replaced by unique color)
Source 2: Undefined
Solution 2: The TV setting menu seems to b set by specific colors, change it on your own using remote. OR this is a specific part that the DVD need to show the color in unique color (only one)
(No problems, keep watching)!

I have an Envision AOC 32 tv monitor and want to hook my WII up to it, It has yellow white and red wires. The back of the monitor has HMDI, PC Cable, and coax connectors. It also has speaker out puts and...


Yellow Is VIDEO, Red & White is your AUDIO. (Stereo). They should go color to color on the TV's AV input. This is AV, and you use 3 wires to connect this way.
The Red, Green, & Blue, is called COMPONENT, & is ONLY VIDEO, the AUDIO, still must use Red & White. So to connect with Component you use 5 wires, altogether, 3 for Video, 2 for Audio.
Plug them in color to color & choose the right INPUT on the TV, and turn on your input device.

Problems with subtly changing colors


What connection are you using, HDMI or component?

Also, on what source is the problem happening, through sat or through off air antenna?

If you're on HDMI I'd try component. Then, playback the affected video and see if it's reproduced w/ component.

If it's on ota only, you may have a loose tuner cable inside. It's easy to fix, you need a torx t-10 screwdriver. Unplug the unit, take the 5 torx screws off of the back cover, and on the right side you'll see 2 cables running from tuners in the front to a splitter that connects to the tuner for ota on the back right. Just make sure the connections are tight with your hands only, don't over tighten them. Also, make sure you don't touch the power supply when you have the unit open!

It could be that the "White Uniformity" needs to be adjusted which would probably require an authorized service technican to perform. Otherwise, the problem may lay within the light engine itself, also requiring a tech.
