Question about Philips 60PP9202 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

DPTV335 Ok - Here is a hard one for you.  I have a DPTV335 with audio but no video.  When I powered it up and noticed a blue arc in the blue CRT tube neck. I wanted to test the tube in another set so I put it in my old Philips PTV835 that I had in the garage. The PTV835 was working prior to the swap.  I powered up the PTV835 with the suspect CRT and nothing lit up - all three cans remained off. I then put the original/working CRT back into the PTV835 and powered up the set. To my surprise the whole set is now dead. I have no HV as far as I can tell.  My question is as follows... 1) On the PTV835 - What do you suspect I damaged when I put the defective CRT into the set? What typicaly gets fried from a shorted CRT? 2) On the DPTV335 - Same question - What gets fried when a crt shorts out.  Thanks in Advance, Ed

    Thanks "Slinteriors".

    I moved the whole crt - yoke and all over to the PTV.  I will check the vertical and horizontal

    Question - On the DPTV

    I will check the vertical,horizontal, and hv generator also. But before investing in a blue crt I want to get video working again. 

    Is it possible get video working on the other CRT's without the blue crt connected?  

    Or do all three need to be connected and functional to get video?

    I assume I can just removed the blue circuit board, hv, and other cables...but not sure if this will work or not. Any tricks here?

Ed did you change the yokes when you put the DPTV series CRT into the PTV chassis? If not its most likely the vertical output or the Horizontal output that got destroyed. If you changed the yoke its most likely the HV generator.
On the DPTV chassis that should shutdown the vertical deflection which would leave audio working worse case scenario would also be the HV generator and Horizontal output.

I have an old 36 inch widescreen Philips CRT TV which has been working fine for 7 years until yesterday when the whole screen just went blue with a series of white horizontal lines. The audio is still OK...

Since there is a blue screen atleast, I don't think that the picture tube is gone. The fault may be either to its chroma IC or video output section. In both sections fault cases, this type of horizontal lines [parellel to each other at about 1 inch or so apart the entire screen] will be seen. Just check the voltages at the three cathode, ie, red, blue and green of the piclture tube. This can be measured at the picrture tube neck card. If you have through knoledge in electronics, have patience and enough tools to do the work, inform me through Fixya. Without these, you can't work on a tv, especially in Philips.
Otherwise, get it checked by any expereinced service technician. OK.

The snap you hear is likely from the high voltage in the set. The worst case scenario is that the picture tube (CRT) is shorted and is arcing internally causing the set to shut down. There are other less expensive possibilities such as the flyback transformer which can also fail in such a way as to arc. You may be able to see through the top ventilation slots in back as you power the set. The neck of the tube extends back into the rear cabinet and you could possibly see a flash inside the tube neck if it is arcing. I would have to recommend you have a technician check this problem to diagnose it. The tube, if it is defective and out of warranty, would exceed the cost of replacing the TV. Check your warranty as the tube generally has a two year warranty and other parts one year with 90 days on labor.

That chassis has a couple of problems I'd check first before writting it off as a bad crt... The vertical Ic can cause the problems you're experiencing. In that unit it's a TDA8177 (vertical Ic) and if it fails you'll find no 10v supply to the HV generator - thus no HV to light the cans. Could also be the HV generator module itself, but more likely vertical Ic before suspecting the HV module. If you hav a dmm you could measure the voltage on pins 7 & 8 or pins 1 & 2 on the HV plug. If you have nothing there it's the generator - if not highly suspect the vertical.
To answer your question - if the blue can were bad red & green would still light depending on the internal short. If all three are out I'd suspect a loss of HV (high voltage) or B+ as it's referenced.
Good Luck!

Replacing CRT neck socket after arcing problem.


Don't know what happened to the last post I sent you its disappeared.

What I think you should do is definately replace the CRT white socket (tube base plug).
You can either take the CRT number from the label on the tube & put it in to google then search for Crt base plug.
Or see if there is A repair shop local to you who can order the tube base for you.
Are you definately sure the arcing is external to tube & not happening in the tube neck ?
Is the CRT made by LG / PHILIPS. These are notorius for for arcing over internally I must write at least 1 A week off for this problem.

If you can still run the set try tapping the neck of tube with screwdriver handle if pic flashes or goes predominately1 colour you are looking at the tube with internal short.

If this is the case there are ways of trying to get rid of the internal short let me know what you find ?
