Question about Philips 55PP9401 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Convergence adjustments codes with remote control

The set was moved outside for viewing for about 10 hours. After the set was returned to family room indoors it worked properly for several days. When power was turned on a convergence problem was evident and a burnt smell was very noticeable. Turned power off and waited several hours before turning power on. Convergence is now a permanent problem. All images now have a blue, red, and green ghost. Local dealers are of no help as they are not Philips dealers. One of the dealers did tell me I had a convergence problem and a code was not the answer. I would like to try a code first if it is possible.

If your talking about a service menu, NEVER ever unless you have the service manual, go into the service menu and change anything to try to fix a problem the service menu is there to adjust sets at instalationsd and not when a problem, occours and when theres a smell. common sense tells you something is wrong and burnt up. So how is a service menu that you have no clue what to do with going to help you fix a set? Im sorry man but wake up and smell the coffee. what makes you a service tech after your set breaks down.,. Oh by the way there is NO such thing as a "CODE" to fix anything in your set. There is a service menu with settings to adjust things like convergence and vertical and tunning of channels, ect ect. Get a manual and follow it if you want to try a "code". you can get one at http://www.service Then you will need to call a tech as your set is a solid state set with No user replaceable parts inside them. Please dont risk your life trying to fix a TV set as there is a lot of High Voltage inside these sets even when they are unplugged.

Remote not working as i moved tv into another room

If the remote control you've bought is a universal remote control, you have to set it with your TV, by TVs setup codes. The setup code list will be attached to the new remote controls' packing. If you wish to get more details, check the sites linked here. Set-up code list, and Set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls are given.

Sony kp-53xbr45 please let me know step by step how to enter convergence service thank you


To enter into the convergence service of your sony, follow the steps below;
  1. Press "Menu" on the remote control. Use the up- or down-arrow button to move the cursor to "Setup" and then press "Return."
  2. Use the up or down arrow to move the cursor to "Convergence" and press "Return." This will bring up the convergence-adjustment screen.
  3. Press the up or down arrow to move the cursor to the line you want to adjust (either vertical or horizontal for red and blue) and press "Return."
  4. Press the up or down arrow again to move that line until it converges with the center green line and press "Return."
  5. Repeat to adjust the other lines until all three lines converge and are seen as a white cross.
  6. Press "Menu" to exit the convergence menu and return to the original screen.
You can as well follow these steps;
  1. Press the "Power" button to turn your TV on.
  2. Wait at least 30 minutes before you adjust the convergence in your television. This allows your TV ample time to warm up before you make the adjustment.
  3. Turn your TV to a cable channel or to an antenna channel with a picture that you can see. A music channel with a static shot of music notes isn't the kind of picture you need. Instead, look for a picture like what you would see on a movie, sitcom or drama.
  4. Press the "Flash Focus" button located in the front panel on your TV. You may need to open a hidden compartment on the front of your TV to access this button. The convergence will repair itself automatically after you hit this button. It may take several minutes.
Any of the two processes are detailed steps on how to enter your convergence service.

Take care

I stumbled across a tutorial on fixing the convergence for my Sony KP-46WT510 a while ago, and now I can't find it again! Does anyone know where I can find that tutorial or one similar to it? We've been...

Here is a walk through on how to set your convergence.

A quick and easy way to try and let the TV realign the convergence try this...

1) Turn on the TV and tune to a channel and let it warm up for about a half an hour to let everything settle into its normal operating mode.

2) Press the Flash Focus button on the original TV remote. A cross pattern will show on the screen and the process is complete when the cross turns white and the TV returns to the program you were watching.

3) Do not press any other buttons until this process has completed.

If this does not adjust it enough you can adjust the convergence manually as follows:

1) Press the menu button on the original TV remote.

2) Use the arrow keys on the remote to highlight setup and press + button to select.

3) Use arrow keys to select convergence and press + button to select.

4) A pattern of white crosses appears, with a yellow [ ] around one of the
crosses. Aligned crosses (which do not need adjustment) look white and
have little or no red or blue showing. Crosses that are not aligned show
red or blue shades beyond their edges.

5) Use the arrow keys to move the [ ] to a cross that is not aligned. ***Note: start with crosses in the middle and work outward ****
*** TIP: Set the alignment while about 5 feet from TV for better results ****

6) Press the + button to select the cross and the [ ] will turn red indicating it is ready to adjust the Red convergence.

7) Use the arrow keys to move the red cross on top of the white one or at least as close as you can get it.

8) Once the Red is aligned press the + key again and the [ ] will turn blue. This indicates it is now ready to adjust the blue convergence.

9) Use the arrow keys to move the blue cross on top of the white one or at least as close as you can get it.

10) Once you have aligned the blue cross press the + button again and the [ ] should turn yellow.

11) Repeat steps 5 through 10 until all the crosses are aligned. To exit back to regular programming press the menu button on the remote.

Hi, we just moved the tv from one room to another and now the images are just greens and blues. We lost the colors! What can i do?

Sounds like you have bad solder connections at your convergence ic's.These are large amplifier ic's mounted on large heat sinks.These ic's run very hot and can cause faulty connections at the solder joints.Try resoldering ,if this doesn't fix it you will need to replace them and any surrounding resistors that have opened.

To adjust manual convergence on your projection TV, follow theses steps:
  1. Turn your TV on.
  2. Let it warm up for 30 minutes.
  3. Press the Menu button on your remote. The Main menu appears.
  4. Use your remote to select Function, and then press the joystick.
  5. Select Convergence, and then press the joystick. The Manual Convergence screen appears.
  6. Select Red, and then press the joystick. A series of crosshairs appears on the screen.
  7. Select one of the outside crosshairs by moving the joystick up/down/right/left or by pressing the 2 (up), 4 (left), 6 (right), or 8 (down) buttons on your remote. The method you use depends on the model of remote you have. Note: You must do the outside crosshairs first.
  1. In the crosshair you selected, if you can see a horizontal red line, use the CH up or CH down buttons to move the line so that it is superimposed on the horizontal center line of the crosshair. Note: Make the single horizontal line as white as possible.
  1. In the crosshair you selected, if you can see a vertical red line, use the Vol + or Vol - buttons to move the line so that it is superimposed on the vertical center line of the crosshair. Note: Make the single vertical line as white as possible.
  1. Repeat for all outside crosshairs, and then for the inside crosshair.
  2. Return to the Manual Convergence Screen, and select Blue, and then press the joystick.
  3. Repeat Steps 7 through 10 for Blue.
  4. Press the Menu button on your remote to exit.
Important: The directions above work for most Samsung Rear Projection TVs. Yours may be different. For exact directions to perform manual convergence, see your user's manual. If you don't have your user's manual on hand, click HERE to view your manual on line.
If you cannot get your Projection TV to converge, it may need to be serviced. To arrange a service appointment, call Samsung Customer Care at 1-800-Samsung (1-800-726-7864). Have your TV's model number and serial number on hand when you call.

Convergence settings

Key Functions
7,8,9 = select R, G or B
+100,0,PRE-CH = mute R, G or B
INFO = test/normal
4 = shifts from point to line, grid move
2 = restore factory
SOURCE = H/V select
ADD/DEL = Save
S.MODE = exit
MUTE = cursor forward
P.MODE = cursor back
Volume +/- = moves convergence left or right
Channel +/- = moves convergence up or down
1 = zero's all convergence settings (ugly!)
U/D/L/R = move cursor
SELF FOCUS = saves the convergence adjustment - do before exiting

Good luck.  I let a sub-standard service joint work on mine - they replaced the OEM chips with a higher wattage equivalent, and I've had nothing but problems ever since.

Pincussion/Geometry/Convergance Problem

If you can not correct the convergence with custumer settings is because something went wrong inside the tv and it has to be diagnosed and corrected by a service technician,you are correct there are setting you can access with the remote but are usually adjusted after you have replace a major component.I would suggest you call for service,I do not believe is a problem you created or you could have prevented.

Yes sir anytime you move a projection set ,theres a chance that the convergence could go out of alighnment as it dosent take much. First off your gonna need a cross hatch generator and a service manual and a good kno how on convergence alighnment as when you adjust some controls you need to counter it withanother completely differant alighnment control> so in some cases to get a section or a linearity correction your gonna spend some time. I myself remeber one set I spend 5 hours on after a customer tryed to adjust the confergence them selfs. Not only did it cost a bundle to realighn the gentleman need to go to the hospital as i results of touching a spot on the chassis that he shouldnt have and gave him a shock that threw him across the room. My advice, unless you have convergence experience is to invest in a service person to come out to your home and adjust it for you. I would try first an authorized repair center as they should have all the tools and secrits to the convergence in that set. And Please without electronic experience, even an unplugged set can harm ya. Good luck Try the # and the link 800) 252-5722 or
