Hi. I recently had a, "Brain Snap", and allowed a Philips Rear projection TV to follow me home. Now I need a service manual for it, a Philips model 43pp8420.
Strangely, information on this set seems difficult to find. I did however manage to find the Owner's Manual for it on-line.

Having serviced various Rear projection TV's, I can see this one has not the picture quality that I would have expected.

See the photos submitted.

The cooling fluid in the lens system has probably gone cloudy. Don't know if you can still get it anymore. Not much love for rear projection tellies out there.
