60 inch philips projection tv 60PP9202 color fading/concave screen

I have had my 60" Philips projection tv (60PP9202) for almost 4 years now without any problems. Just recently I started noticing a drastic fading of the screen colors. Then yesterday when I turned it on, there was a black hump in the lower left hand corner that was making the entire screen concave. I've read feedback on this and see that I need a convergence integrated circuit. Can you tell me what the exact part name/number is that I need? Thanks!

SOURCE: no color adjustment


*Note: This procedure is required for all of the following geometry and
convergence adjustments.*

*Using the remote transmitter, enter the following seven-button sequence to
activate the convergence mode.*

* 06 - 25 - 97 - Menu (M)*

*The "Opening Menu" will appear offering choices:*

* *

* *

*Channel 3*

*Use Channel up/down to*

*Select a Channel with Video*

* *

* Remote control key functions:*

* Use arrow up/down and left/right: Adjust Convergence*

* M: Advance "cross" location*

* Up, Down, Left, Right*

* 3: Exit Convergence*

* Status: Abort/Cancel Changes*

* M: Begin Convergence*

* *

* *

*Note: video information must be present to correctly adjust the
convergence. A signal source is required to lock the vertical and
horizontal sync. After entering the "convergence service mode" verify the
presence of a video source by confirming the presence of active audio (use
the volume up function on the remote). Use the channel up and down function
on the remote to select the desired tuning source.*

* *

* *

*Select item "M" from the first menu, the "Convergence Menu" will appear
featuring 5 possible selections.*

* *

* Channel 3*

* Convergence:*

* *

*1. green geometry*

*2. red To green Convergence*

*3. blue To green Convergence*

*4. green To red Convergence*

*5. green To blue Convergence*

* Status: Abort/Cancel Changes*

* *

* *


* *

*1. Enter the "convergence service mode" as described above in the
"convergence service mode procedure".*

*2. Select the desired color requiring adjustment. Note: Do not
select Green Geometry (1). This procedure is described under "Major
Convergence/Geometry Alignment. If Green Geometry is altered during this
procedure a "Major Convergence/Geometry Alignment" maybe required. *

*3. Cover the Output Lens of the single color presently NOT being
adjusted. Example: If you select Green to Red Convergence (4) cover the Blue
Output Lens.*

*4. The highlighted adjustment Icon (Cross) should be illuminated on
the middle left side of the screen. Make the necessary Convergence
Adjustments using the following Remote Keys:*

* *

*· Use the Arrow Up ( ) to adjust the selected color up.*

* *

*· Use the Arrow Down Key ( ) to adjust the selected color down.*

* *

*· Use the Arrow Right Key (-) to adjust the selected color to the

* *

*· Use the Arrow Left Key (+) to adjust the selected color to the

* *

*5. Move to the next location to be converged. It is not required
that the full Convergence Sequence be followed while performing the
"Convergence Touch Up Alignment Procedure". The following alternate Remote
Keys allow for positioning of the Icon to the desired adjustment location:*

* *

*· Key 2 on the Remote Transmitter will position the Adjustment
Icon upward on the screen.*

* *

*· Key 8 on the Remote Transmitter will position the Adjustment
Icon downward on the screen. *

* *

*· Key 4 on the Remote Transmitter will move the Adjustment Icon
to the Left.*

* *

*· Key 6 on the Remote Transmitter will move the Adjustment Icon
to the Right.*

* *

*6. Return to the "Convergence Service Menu" by selecting Key number
3 on the remote transmitter or by sequencing the Icon to the last adjustment
point at the lower right corner of the screen and pushing the Menu (M) Key
on the Remote Transmitter..*

* *

*7. Repeat steps 1 through 6 for other required Convergence

*8. To Save the Adjustment completed in the last procedure,
Exit/Save the Convergence Service Mode by selecting Key 1 on the Remote
Transmitter. This forces the corrections to be written to the EEPROM on the
Convergence Module.*

* *

* *

* *

*Note: To save the convergence corrections made above you must exit the
convergence menu by selecting Exit/Save Data (1)*

Your convergence chips and convergence resistors are going bad. When they fail the screen colors will look distorted/3d looking. Another symptom is one or more colors can't be converged using the convergence menu. You can purchase the parts over the internet. Just make sure you get Sanyo brand convergence chips and the correct flame proof resistors. You can also check the site for a kits.  Just make sure you replace both of the convergence chips and all of the convergence resistors.

The colors look very weak. The green is weaker than the blue. Red seems ok. I have a philips 60 inch rear projection. It almost looks like a haze. The colors are not crisp. .

The TV has coolant in the CRTs that after years of use get cloudy. you will need to have a shop replace the coolant in all three, it is pretty involved so its best to have a trained tech. do it.
