Question about Philips 55PP9352 55" Projection Television

3 Answers

Blue out of whack around sides

I have a Philips 55PP935217 that just recently had the blue convergence go totally askew.  The center area of the picture is fine, but around the sides and somewhat on the top and bottom, I cannot converge the blue.  Around the bottom, parts of the blue look crooked, like they're leaning towards a common point, but I'm not sure what that point is.  Is there any way to manually move the blue lens without messing anything up?  It seems if I were able to move the lens to the left about an inch (if looking at the front of the screen) then everything would be fine.  Am I just dreaming here, or is that possible?

Re: Blue out of whack around sides

I have the convergence problem with the red. After reading your site I replaced the 2 ICs and the problem is worse. Before the only problem was I could not adjust the red horizontal. Now I have no control over the vertical or horizontal and the overall picture is very red and it bows at the top and bottom very bad. A friend said I might have the ribbon connector in wrong or the convergence (silver box?) box maybe bad. Any ideas? Thanks,Dave.

Re: Blue out of whack around sides

Found the problem to be convergence chips and resistors. i dont remember the numbers off the top of my head but they can be replace (soldering required) and new heat transferance paste. fixed my problem.

I understand your frustrations, and if you did the work yourself you can feel really bad. In this case if you really want to save this TV, I would suggest you visit Union Electronics. And purchase a reworked replacement board. In many cases this is the best route to go and the price is reasonable. Call them at 1 800 648 6657. I have had very good luck with this company! And these boards are guaranteed, ask for the lenghth allowed. Have your TV model # and tell them you are looking for the convergence board. Thanks for asking!

Covergence out of alignment on 1/4 Vertical left side of screen

You need to manually adjust the alignment:
On remote, press Menu to get to the main menu
Then arrow down to "ADVANCED FEATURES"
Then press "enter"
Then Arrow down to "CONVERGENCE" and press "enter"
"Red Convergence" should be highlighted
Press "enter"
You now have Green, Red, and Blue overlapping crosses.
If Red is out of whack, use arrows to align
To toggle to blue (and back to red), press "VIDEO"
Then align blue cross
Once the crosses look aligned, and nice and white, press "AUDIO"
This will bring up the Advanced Convergence screen
This is a grid of the same overlapping colors
You have control over the Red and Blue
If Green is very out of whack, you'll need a repairman…
While the "target" is flashing, you can move it around the screen with the arrows
Place it over an intersection to adjust, then press "enter"
Now the "target" is steady (not flashing), and you can use the arrows move your color
When it's aligned, press "enter" again
Now "target is flashing, and you can go to the next square.
You cannot adjust every intersection.
Some areas need to be adjusted via the adjacent intersection
When you're happy with color you're working on,
Press "video" while target is flashing to change to the other color
Repeat the above (blue is much harder to see and adjust for me…)
When you're happy with the entire grid, start hitting "Menu"
Each press brings you back out one menu level, until you are out of them
Once you're used to the process, it should take no more than a minute or two.

Green dot in middile of my screen

The green dot in the center sounds like a burn mark on one or more of the picture tubes inside the set, and the curved lines are telling me that you have a problem in the convergence circuits. The blue haze around everything white tells me you either have a lot of dust build up on the lens over the CRTs, or your picture tube(s) are very weak. If this set is over about 12 years old, I would replace it. I doubt if you will be able to get the green dot out of the picture without changing the tubes which would be VERY expensive.
