I have a 60" Philips rear projection television with problems noted on this site on the 10th of this month. Anyone know what happens when the CRT or any of it's components fail?

It can manifest itself in various ways, but the most common is for the picture to have lost its brilliance, this happening over a period of time, maybe about six months or more, and also the contrast to be poor with a washed out looking picture, and any attempt to increase the brilliance level usually results in a still dull, but blurred picture.

The above is caused by low emmision of the tubs drive guns. In the past a booster transformer was fitted to overvolt the filaments (heaters) which overcame the low emmision problem (for a while anyway), but this is not really done so much nowadays.
