Question about Philips 46PP9302 46" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Picture size too large

The picture size has gotten bigger and bigger on this TV. By that I mean the picture is now so big that you miss the top, bottom and sides of the screen. For example, when watching the news, the scrolling bar at the bottom is missing. Watching football, the scores are often missing. When I go to set the convergence, the outer rows of crosses is gone.

Re: Picture size too large

We have the same problem with the same model. We already had the main board replaced. The picture has gotton so bad that you cannot adjust the pixels anymore. Well, you could never get to the pixels that were off the screen because the picture is too big

The picture seems to have gotten bigger and now the tops of their heads are cut off

When this happens you can try the wide/picture format/view mode button on your television's remote control first. If your remote does not have one or if this does not correct the problem check the resolution on the cable box next. If your television displays 720p make sure the cable box is set for 720p, or 1080i if the television supports that resolution. First you have to make sure your tv in on the right input not the tv tuner input. Then use the hdzoom# button on the cable remote. If you have a satellite remote it might say format or aspect or you might have to go into the cable box/satellite receiver menu and choose 1080i crop or 1080i stretch to get the right picture size.

Have you tried hitting the format picture button on your remote control. Seems the picture is in zoom mode. If you have a cable box for HD Channels then look on the remote for a button (format) or Screen size.

Good Day, tree64;
More than likely the convergence problem the TV has wont be resolved by adjustments. In your situation, moving TV, the problem most likely is poor solder connections on the convergence IC's. They are large devices attached to very large heat-sinks, and have numbers on the IC'c like STK 392-560.
If no poor connections....replce.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Problems with my 61 inch phillips t.v.,need help a.s.a.p.

Can you explain more about what you mean by big then small? When the picture got small do you mean it shrunk down in size leaving a black screen around the perimeter? Or did it bow in from top bottom? If you van acurately describe what it was doing I may be able to point you into the right direction on diagnosing the problem.
