I have a philips 60pp9202 model tv . it about .9yrs old the letters shows doubled on the screen.i have changed the convergence ics, it still doing the same. the screen also shows blur. can you help...

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • 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.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common 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.

Odd picture....

Yes, your convergence is off. There is a function in the menu for adjusting these propoerties. It is supposed to be done monthly but rarley is. If it is ten years old or more, the cooling fluid in the projection tubes can get low, causing fish bowl effect. Not a cheap job and time intense. Try adjusting the convergence first. It gives you three screens to aling each color then save. Good luck!

48" rear projection hazy/bad picture

most fluid changes would fix that. I recommend doing all three but that's just me. Also make sure the crt's are full as this would cause the set to be out of focus. also make sure you don't move the yokes too much because you can knock the convergence out pretty bad and also have a blurred pix

Auto Focus Stoped Working

If the convergence is very far off the convergence ICs are bad and need to be replaced first. If the convergence is close and it wont correct it might just be an insect or some dust on the sensors at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock posistions behind the screen.

You have a convergence problem. Go to the convergence menu or consult the owners manual on the convergence procedure and try to correct i if you can.. However if the red image is bowed and or not linear you will probably need to call a technician to repair your set. Most likely the red convergence output chip has failed. This is a common problem with all CRT ( picture tube) rear projectors. Good Luck. Happy Easter

The convergence is way off. You may be able to adjust it thru a service mode menu. You'd need to get the model number first.
How old is the set?
