Question about Philips 55PP9363 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Hello .. i hope you can help .. our tv has suddenly developed red and green halos on the picture .. i followed the instructions for multipoint cong. but some of the red crosses are lop sided. and im not sure if they can be straightened . The bottom lot of x's is forming like an arch on the bottom of the screen (these are red) .. do i just keep trying to connect the crosses together or is there something else i should be doing
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. This is called convergence.
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,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.
