Default Philips 60" RPTV - New cooling fluid, clean lenses and mirror, still "cloudy"

This set has been focused (mechanically and electrically), all cooling
fluids replaced, lenses and mirror cleaned spotless, picture is still
overall hazy/cloudy. Possibly nature of this set? Model 9p6031c.

Hazy/cloudy compared to what? One thing you didn't mention cleaning was
the screen itself....

Screen has been cleaned. Just for grins, I pulled the back off and
took a look at the crt's again. Lo-and-behold...blue is cloudy as is
the green crt. Coolant was replaced two weeks ago and was crystal
clear. Is it possible for bacteria to grow this fast already,
especially since the set hasn't been running much since? Another
thought is that MCM was out of coolant, so I had to get it from
tritronics. MCM has tech-spray and Tritronics carries MG Chemicals. I
topped off the crt's with the MG chems coolant. Is it possible the two
somehow reacted with eachother?

Did you clean the back of the screen?

Forgot to mention to clean the CRT chamber and lenses with denatured
alcohol then rinse with distilled water. Clean the orings with distilled
water because the alcohol will eat them. Seal the rings with 100% silicon
rubber. Use 100% cotton balls so you don't make scratches. This will
eliminate any uncertanties about a bacteria problem.


How about diluted chlorine bleach?
