Question and Answers

Q:

Philips-Magnavox 50 in. projection tv has a hazy red tint to the picture and isn't very bright.

A:

Televisions today are a large investment and to have problems develop is upsetting. If you are knowledgeable about electronics and have the tools, it may be that you prefer to repair yourself. If, like most of us, you are not that comfortable around high voltage and circuit boards, another option is to visit Sears Home Services , use the handy scheduler and let the experts do it.

This TV is a CRT based rear projection TV. There are some different scenarios that can cause this symptom but a common one is that the fluid in the CRT has become contaminated. It is a common issue over time and what needs to happen is that a technician removes each CRT and replaces the fluid. The cost of the fluid is around 50 to 100 dollars but the procedure is labor intensive. With a TV this age the tubes will never be as bright as they were when it was new but it should clear it up a great deal.
