Question about Philips 60PP9363 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Extreme White Glowing

I have a Phillips 60", model 60PP936H/17, that has an extemely over powering white glow around everything. I have tried useing the factory settings but they are either too dark or lack detail. When I did the custom color settings, I got the detail and quality I was looking for, but now I have an extreme white glow around things, especially if I am watching sports, it looks like the players have white aura's around them. I was hoping you may be able to provide some tips of getting the quality I want without the glow. Thanks - Duchalmatt

Hi i have a phillips 43pp6360/79 it has a very cloudy over bright picture. Also when adjusting the blue convergence the second cross dosent appear anywhere but a slight blue haze moves around the first...

I'm not quite sure about the convergence issue, but the glowing white haze is a sign that the fluid in the color tubes is dirty and usually can only be fixed if the fluids are changed out(draining and refilling). This is not recommended for someone who does not know what they are doing, it is best to get an expert to do this work because it can be dangerous as well as hazardous to your television and quite expensive. Mostly all rear projection televisions will have this issue, but I find that just upgrading to a newer-model television is usually better, maybe a flat panel LCD(Liquid Crystal Display)(stay away from unknown brands and plasmas, although Vizio's LCDs will get you more bang for your buck). On an LCD, all you really have to worry about is cracking the liquid-crystal display, which is quite fragile, but can be avoided if no hands or objects touch the LCD. On the other hand, best of luck in fixing your Philips rear-projection.

"Halo" Effect

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images. 

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Phillips 60" Changing STK392-120 Removing board Model#60PP936H/17

Typicaly you can remove the SSB board on the left without having to remove the flyback wires. If however you are trying to remove the entire deck all at once you will need to remove the flyback wires as indicated. 

You do not need to use needle nose pliers. Goto the site and click on the "Tips" menu. Under that section you will see instuctions on how to remove the HVG/flyback wires. 
Hope this helps,
