Question about Philips 60PP9352 60" Rear Projection Television

Warped Picture, Separated colors

My Philips 60" rear projection TV has a problem with the green CRT. At first, I had separated colors at the top and bottom of the screen. Then I did a convergence alignment. The colors did align, however the green CRT will not align straight. When the green grid is on the screen, the top middle warps down to the center and the bottom middle warps up to the center. I CANNOT adjust the green grid straight! The best I could do was align the red to the green and the blue to the green. The colors are not separated, however the top and bottom of the screen are warped. What would cause this, and how can I get it fixed?

    I was watching TV this afternoon. Everything was fine. Turned off the TV and came back about 3-4 hours later and turned the TV on. Colors were way out of alignment...especially green. Tried to use Magic Focus and found that the green grid was warped. But the green grid isn't adjustable, only red and blue. So now what?

You have a convergence problem.  Here are some of the most common symptoms. 

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when when using the convergence menu. 
Screen is bowed in but stationary.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors.  Check the site They have put together a kit for your exact model. The kit inlcludes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors,  etc. Everything you need to fix it yourself.

Each color (red,green & blue) has an amplifier IC (STK-).
When there is a convergence issue,the first step is change both
IC's for reliability. Then check for open fuses devices,usually
pico fuses.Then re-check convergence alignment.......T.

Color is bad especially colors like orange and the white on peoples teeth is black most of the time andthe picture is not clear

HI, thank you for visit fixya.
Common problem on this set .
Picture tube liquid is dirty.
Mostly in crt green and crt blue.
Do you have electronics skills?. If so, open the TV ( back cover), you will see green,blue and red gun. After turn on your tv, select any channel or video signal, cover with piece a paper two guns at the top ( any), and see how look the picture in the front, try one at time, ( press menu on remote control and see leters-clear). I am sure the green and blue will be no clear. all the time red tube is fine.
I will be here for any quetions.

Philips 60 inch rear projection screen is wacky!!

Your TV most likely has one or more 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 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 that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

My red and green colors separated

You have to go into your menu and into setup then look for convergence, don't know exactly where since the TV isn't in fornt of me. But once you get there, there should be a bund of "+" all the ones thare are in color you need to change to white. Depending on the TV you would use our left or right arrow keys, enter or ok. Hope this helps.
