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

1 Answer

Bottom of projection tube is another color

In the top right hand and bottom left hand corner of the screen the color seems to be distorted. It is most noticable with blues. The color seems to turn a yellowish brown color. Is the projection tube going? If so estimated cost? Is it worth fixing or should I purchase another TV.

Yes, worth fixing, sounds like convergence is out on the tip ends. Check papers for Convergence controls. See if have auto fix.

Have you tried the "Magic Focus" Button/Option in the Menu Setup Screen? If you have and it still is there, You Have a Burned out Color Tube. It is Cheaper to Throw it away and Buy a New one.

Red color distortion.

You have a Convergence problem. Most likely the STK392-120"s are bad and possibly a few resistors. Not something you should attempt if you've never done one. I would recommend calling a service co. in to repair it.

Philips 46-inch Rear Projection with bowed image?? slight distortion

You have a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms. 

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when when using the convergence menu.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site They have put together a kit for your exact model. The kit inlcludes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc. Everything you need to fix it yourself. Its an easy fix.
