Question about Philips 55PW9363 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

We are using the 55 rear tv to display our logo for a talk show.

The color just wont display right. a television guy who I brought the tv from said there is nothing wrong with the tv. the dvd plays fine with the
right color in the other tv but not in the phillips rear. Is there a certain
hookup we need to do as far as a video upconverter as far as the dvd is
concerned.

I assume you purchased the tv in the current condition you are describing. Philips are notorious for having cloudy glyconol coolant. The coolant is situated in a chamber between the light tubes and the lenses and is required in order to keep the tubes running cool or they would otherwise crack from the excessive heat from the light tubes. The coolant normally becomes corrupted in the blue tube first, with the red and green tubes following closely behind it. The Video that is able to project through the cloudy coolant causes a picture that is washed out, fuzzy, and can even cause rainbowy colors depending on how many chambers are cloudy.

If you want further proof that the glyconol is corrupted, you can have someone remove the rear cover and take off the lenses from the light tubes so you can see directly into the coolant chambers to determine which ones are cloudy. Replacing the coolant is an involved process. You should attempt to return the tv to the sales person for a full refund if possible and explain the tv is not okay as he said.

Blue and Yellow shadows


Google "HItachi Convergence Circuit" and you will see that it is a very common problem. Looks like TV repair guys get $400 to fix it. The parts will set you back $15-$50 but there is some complicated soldering to do.

I am going to repair my own...but I have a lot of experience in soldering
