Question about Philips 43PP9202 43" Rear Projection Television
I have read through many posts and keep getting different answers about my problem. The blue and red converge and look fine, but when I try to do the green the center cross is fine but the multipoints do not line up. The image gets curved as you look further away from the center. There is also a line that bows at the top. I took the lens off and I could see the line from where the light was shining from the bulb. I just want to know what repair kit I should buy, if any.
Thank you very much, Nick
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
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. This43 philips problem with green - 2c07611.pngn problem.
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. 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.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

It sounds as if you have a convergence amp bad. Inter service mode for convergence. If the green will adjust then convergence just needs to be reset. If it will not adjust then you have a bad convergence amp.
