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

2 Answers

Picture warped..Can't fix convergence because crosshairs are also warped!!

My Philips Rear Projection tv has some convergence/warping issues. There is a large green curve in the bottom rear of screen about 4 inches tall, and stretching over more than half of the horizontal distance acroos the bottom. The picture has a "double vision" effect all around this area, as well as doubling along the top part as the screen as well. I tried to fix the convergence by manually adjusting the red/blue/green, but it doesn't work--The crosshairs are not straight at all, but rather skewed, and at angles so that the colored crosshairs can never disappear...The center crosshairs are relatively straight, its just the outer perimeter ones that are out of wack..the corners are the worst. Can this be fixed by me, or will I have to pay a repairman $$$ to fix this? I am pretty good with electronics/computers, so I would definately try and fix it first..this tv is a few years old- almost outdated-not really worth a hefty repair bill.. Help...thanks in advance

    I also have the same problem with my tv! I fix the convergence, but the tv is still warped. With the tv being warped, are there any other specific solutions to fix the t.v. My local technician said the Phillips parts are $$$$$ and they are hard to repair!

I have a solution, same thing happened to me, have the tv in shop still. my guy said he has replaced the ssb (?cuircut board) three times. all three times the tv worked great for a day or two then the same thing would happen again. finally he figured out it was some small part, sorry cant remember what it is call. He contacted philips for support or to order the part and was informed they had to discontinue making the part because it was defective and would mess up the ssb everytime. However, even though philips was aware the part was defective and would tear up the ssb they claim no responsiblilty and no replacement part is available. If anyone knows what can be done to repair this issue or has had this problem themselves please post.

Cost to fix by a technician would be about $250 to replace the Integrated Circuit. Worth it if you ask me. Some say you can do it yourself with a soldering gun. Check other website forums such as HDTVoice.com on replacing.

The color on my rear projection TV is a little off. I tried to fix it by pressing the 'test' button below the screen. I can move the red crosshair perfectly on top of the set green one, but the blue...


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 www.TvRepairKits.com

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.

Rear projection tv screen warped


Hi, this TV is repairable and you will have to replace two devices. the first is the Convergence board. this device regulates the convergence of the RGB stream so it can be projected evenly. it works in conjunction with the CRT's and deflection assembly and the Focus pack(module). The second device that will need to be replaced is the Focus pack(module). This module is malfunctioning and is causing the smudges and warped look at this time.

Replace these two devices and it will fix this set. i will post the Part numbers below along with there respective prices as well.

Focus Pack(module).--- Part Number-- BP59-00005A--- $38.95


Convergence Board assembly--Part Number---BP94-00383A---- $165.95

Please rate and god bless:)

Warped Picture, Separated colors


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.
