Phillips 60PP9202 Convergence Problems

I have a Phillips 60PP9202 with convergence problems. The Blue seems be in a hourglass shape on the screen. I understand that I am susposed to change the convergence IC's, but I have also heard about some resistors that should also be replaced. I would like to have all of the parts on hand before I start the project. My questions are this: How many resistors? What size/type of resistors? Only 2 IC's, correct? Is one brand IC chip better that the other? Any diagrams available anywhere? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, Holbert

    Well I ordered the IC's and the resistors, but the problem mysteriously went away. I guess the TV is afraid of me, rather what I will do to it when it is open. I am assuming the problem will come back. Any thoughts on this, anyone? When/if the problem returns, I will have the parts on hand.

    Thanks for all of the help so far, but I have another question. Where exactly are the resistors that I am looking for? I am trying to figure out where on the schematic they are. Do you know what they labeled these resistors on the schematic, I mean what number rather. I ask this because the service manual says: "Feedback sense voltage is developed across the 6.8 ohm resistors on the return side of each yolk" This was read page 89 titled: Horizontal Convergence Output. I see multiple 6.8 ohm resistors, and want to make sure I change the correct ones.

    Well I finally got this thing ripped apart and once the board was out I found a cold solder joint on one of the return resitors in the IC circuit. I soldered this back up, and since the board was already out I replaced the IC chips. Put it all back together, fired her up and once she was warmed up a bit I did a multipoint convergence adjustment. Looks great. Thanks for all of the help. If anyone needs a copy of the service manual for the 60PP9202 I have an extra copy here. welch6@gmail.com

    I have same problem on a 50PP9202, I have replaced the STK392's, before putting it together I checked the resistors, 3149-3160. and 3157 and 3158 are open (bad). My issue/concern is these 2 seems to be very differnt in color coding to the other 10 which are identicle 6.8 ohm.Blue body with(blue/grey/gold/gold), the 2 bad ones are Tan body with Black/orange/white/brown/white/gold stripes. The orange could be burnt red and the white may just be spacing. so it could be (black/red/brown/Gold).



    Any way are we sure that all 12 of these should be the same? should i just replce then with the 6.8ohm 2watts as the other 10?

    After studying the service manual, schematics and parts lists, I have found that there are actually 12 6.8 ohm resistors in the convergence circuit. The parts list shows them all as the same, but on the board I found two that looked different. I ended up replacing them all with the 6.8ohm 1w as per the parts list and the TV has been working great. I know most of the master techs here say only 1 or 2 go bad, but if you have the board out why not replace them all? I purchased extra of these resistors, and could part with some if someone needs some. Contact me at welch6@gmail.com

    we have a shadowed blue wave at the bottom of the screen and are unable to adjust the convergence with the remote, is this something that we can fix

    Hi we have a Philips 60 inch HDTV rear projection TV that the blue is not working I called Philips and they sent out a tech and after being chrged $114.00 for a 20 minute service visit they told me I needed a blue tube and a new convergence board..... cost $977.85 ?????? They could deduct the $114.00 if I purchased the repair that day. I said no thanks and cried.

    What the heck this tv is only 2 years old? Then he told me he didn't think the tv worked right from the day we purchased it ffrom what he could see inside but the warrenty was up. He was sorry but he had never seen this model last longer then 4 to 5 years so to not feel bad but to stay away from these TV's in the future. Help there is no picture now where can I get these 2 parts cheaper then what I was quoted?

The two convergence IC's are generic part# STK392-120 (Philips original part# 932212344682) The two resistors are sitting side by side (6.8 ohm 2 watt)

    Resoldering the pins on the STK's is maybe all that is needed but.......the job of pulling that board out to just get to the STK's you might as well change them.

  • David Makowski

    If they look ok don't change them...If they look discolored or burnt change them. The fact that you have an intermittent problem,the resistors are probably ok.You can measure the resistance of each one if your not sure- As for as finding them they are near the STK's very easy to find- it's impossible to miss them.

Having problems with the red and blue convergence. TV image looks like a 3d screen with out the 3d glasses


The tv convergence board the 2 STK convergence ICS and some or all it resistors are dead.These parts must be replaced in the tv convergence board to solved the convergence problems.The shop will cost u $300-350 for parts and labors.

Problems with convergence


the convergence Ics have failed. You can get the repair kit for your model which has both ICs and the 12 feed resistors plus step by step instructions on how to do the repair. Heres a link to the repair kit for your model.

Hourglass Shape


If there is a hour glass shape to the image but convergence is normal, there are 2 possibilities. You either have a pincushion correction problem or if the hour glass seems to be moving, it will be an open filter capacitor in the power supply.

Unless you are electronically inclined troubleshooting this issue will require a factory trained service technician. You can expect to spend $300-$400 to fix this.

what about blue? this is an indication that maybe one of the convergence ic have failed. generally you replace both. falure of the ic can also be sympton of other problems.. The oputput ic resistors. the covergence power fuses. but the first step is to replace the ics

Do not adjust any knobs as instucted in the previous thread if you TV have a convergence problem. Doing so will only make things worse. The blog does however show you how to fix other common problems with these sets.

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

Menue and multipoint


I fixed this tonight -- it was the convergence amps, which I purchased for $20. Thought it was the convergence board at first but it turned out to be the amps, which commonly fail after 3 years or so.

Bowing picture


may have blown your convergence, does it look like all 3 colors are hourglass or is it just one. If all 3 are bad and it is on the sides it may be a pincushon problem, I dont think you have an adjustment problem I think you have a part failure. If this set is older than about 5 years old it may be starting to have issues with the CRT coolant and the blue may be getting blury, the blue and green will need to be changed also. I would definitly call someone on this to make sure that you get all your bases covered as Fluid is conductive and can cause all kinds of issues up to fire hazzard. (of course that is if it is leaking, and that could be what caused your hourglass issue.)
