Question about Philips Televison & Video

1 Answer

Ive had my Philips Magnavox for about year. Lately the color is really dull and gets fuzzy. The past few days the TV has had big color issues, like fading to black and white, green tints, and more. If i turn the TV off for a few mins. and turn it back on the picture is fine until i change the channel. I have no idea what could be wrong with it! HELP!

My 1996 Magnavox 25" TV won't work


It sounds that the tuner to your TV is faulty. A detail check is necessary to confirm. Seek expert tech support.

Red and fuzzy picture can you help on my 50 inch phillips magnavox projection TV


This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets.
Screen looks 3D
Colors don't line up
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed or warped.
The other common problem is cloudy lens fluid. After many years the coolant in the blue and green lens will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, bright white, etc. You may even see halos around video.
You can see some example photos and find a solution here on Fixya.

Magnavox big screen has dull picture and colors are not clear. Cloudy picture and has a green film of color over screen. this ia a 64inch big screen. What can


This is especially common with Phillips/Magnavox - A foggy image usually suggests that the coolant in the picture tube(s) (1or all 3) has become discolored and needs to be replaced. The only way to check this is to look directly into the crt faces (disassembly required) to see the condition of the fluid (coolant).
It's a relatively big job that shops charge between $300-400 - Get an estimate. See link for Kit

Fuzzy picture


Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become  cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images. 

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Change the coolant inside the CRT this will restore the color and clarity to 100% on your set.

Color on my tv


Are you refering to dim colors? If so as long as you dont see any halos your coolant may still be passable. I have seen sets that come back to vivid colors just by cleaning the mirroe and lenses on the crts. You can easily get to the mirror from behind after taking off the back panel and lieing close to the set leaning in over the chassis. Dont use windex a damp soft cloth works best then dry it good with some soft paper towels. Iff you can reach the back side of the screen do that also. The mirrors get dull after awhile and cleaning them really makes a difference. Hope this helps.
