Phillips 55PP9401 Convergence Problem

I've had a convergence problem for a few weeks and I'm trying to decide whether it's worth repairing or not. When I use the Intellisense function to align the tubes, it appears to come back with an "error code" 4. Does anyone know what this indicates, and, is it worth repairing a 6 year old set like this or is time to buy new?

Don't have remote is there another way to line up colors I've already changed the convergence chips but not the resistors


Chances are the new ICs have failed since the 6.8 ohm resistors werent changed a phillips will almost always blow one or two of the 6.8 ohm resistors and if new ICs are installed without replaceing the resistors the new ICs are usually destroyed by the blown resistors. You will need the original remote or authorized replacement to adjust the convergence properly.

My phillips 55pp9401 looks orange and purple , heres a picture of what it looks like, i tried the intellisense and it does nothing. http://palmsprings.craigslist.org/ele/1679632114.html


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV2_bing.gif may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture
