Question about Philips 55PP9753 55" Rear Projection Television
While watching any movies with a white bachround, a BLUE halo forms around all the BLACK items on the screan. Have tried the convergence, factory restore, etc. What he #@#@#@!! Do I need a repairman.. What do u Thiunk the DAMAGE wiil BE?? Thanks Chris
Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.
Problem #1 - Failure in the convergence circuits. ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
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 will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.
Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy
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.
Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed. Notice how dull the colors are and how white the screen looks. The screen may also look red, orange, dull, etc.
TV set after fluid change. Notice how bright the colors are now. Everthing looks crisp and sharp again.Way too BLUE - 182c282.jpg/>Solution #2
What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.
