Question about Philips Magnavox 55P9271 55" Rear Projection Television

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....

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy
