    Hello, I have the same problem. I have tried to adjust the convergence, but the green looking color is warped and wobbly.
    I do know how to solder and read a meter. Do you think you could coach me as to what to check?
    Thanks in advance,
    Charlton

Sounds like a convergence problem. Do you know how to solder and use a meter? If so you might be able to repair this yourself for uner $100. Otherwise you will need to call a repairman and he will run you somehwere between $300-$500. Let me know and i can help!

Phillips ptv916 60p8341a fix color


Which menu were you in? Set has Customer, hidden tech, and hidden convergence.

the dark picture may be the lens dirty--clean them if you have not and the red picture may be adjustment of the screen controls just slightly off.

I have a magnavox projection tv and all three colors seperate on the screen. How do I fix this?


Thats usually a convergence issue. Most phillips and magnavox ear projections use the Phillips DPTV305 - DPTV345 convergence repair kit which contains the parts and the CD with instructions for the repair. The kit is available at www.tvrepairworld.com

Yes my 60 in phillips rear projection tv model # 60p8341a the screen is a reddish orange color and wanted to know how to fix it


Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc
