Question about Philips 43PP9202 43" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

43 inch phillips projection t.v

A friend of mine is giving me a 43 inch rear projection Phillips T.V. I do not have the model number yet. He said it works but that the color towards the top of the screen doesn't look right, otherwise he said it works fine. He's getting rid of it because he is a hi-tech kind of guy who now has Plasma tvs and no use for servicing this one. Its been sitting in his garage. Anyone have any ideas on what it might be? I've been told that the color wheel and the projector bulb have to be replace periodically, is that true and can a handy man do the job? Any Idea on cost? Asking a lot, trying to save any unnecessary grief. Thanks Doug

There is no bulb or color wheel in a standard projection set. The standard projection set has convergence output IC's that correct the 3 colors around the edges of the picture. If one of these IC's burns out then one color may sag toward the center at the top. The defective convergence IC will have to be replaced and the convergence circuits realigned and that should be done by a qualified tech.

    When I do a housecall for a set like yours I charge $150, but from what I read here I see other shops charging $300 to $400, which I do not really understand because the new convergence IC's cost about $10 each and a good tech can have it replaced and realigned within an hour ($400 an hour... without a medical degree???). Be sure to ask around to the shops in your area and see what they charge.

    The audio in Hitachi 62 in rear projection tv was intermittent and now it gone completely, I just replaced the Convergence chips because it had the 3D color separation ,i was able to fix that problem , now...

    Model number 55VG825 IS NOT 62 INCH SET, IT IS 55 INCH DLP.


    I can give more information if you give me correct model number---if convergence is now working, it has nothing to do with sound unless you created the problem when you repaired it.

    The more info you give me the better I can help you.

    Adjusting to the proper color

    Tint would be the control that will control the color balance, but this sounds like it may be deeper then that. Turn your color all the way down so that you have a black and whit picture. If the picture is still yellow then you have a problem with the blue picture tube.
