Question about Philips 55PP9401 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Front panel buttons on Philips rear projection do random things

The buttons on the front panel of my tv do random things when pressed. I have a Philips 55" rear projection and the buttons don't control what their supposed to when pressed. I received the tv for free from a friend because the coolant needed to be changed. I changed the blue and green crt coolant and the picture is like new. I don't know if the buttons on the front of the tv ever worked but they aren't now. The power button seldom works and when it does I have to hold it down for up to 30 seconds and push it several times, the channel buttons turn the tv on and off right away, the input does the same thing and will randomly change the inputs like it should, the volume up button sometimes turns the volume down and sometimes up, the volume down button does the same. When I try to change my settings using the volume buttons on the front (say menu under them), they sometimes move settings in correct direction others not so much. How do I fix these problems?

Leaky tact switches on control panel. Part number is 242212802742. Takes 6. They will cost you around 6.00 a piece. Lower front panel pulls off. Be careful as there are two cables attached to htis panel. This should take care of your issues.

How do I get the front panel off my Sony 46in projection tv to adjust the red line conversion.


You cannot - or should not adjust the convergence manualy. The TV has a built in flash focus button on the front panel that you can press. Some sets also have a convergence menu. Use those. Adjusting the knobs in the TV will only make things worse.

Philips Projection tv will not turn on


Not trying to offend you here at all, but ....
1. Plug something else into the same outlet and verify that the outlet works.
2. Look at the power cord for any damage like wear and tear near either end of the cord.
3. Once its plugged in see if you can turn it on using the power button on the front panel (not the remote)
4. If it came on using the power button then there is not a problem with the TV.
5. If it did not come on then Sorry I can't help.
6. If it did come on then make sure the "tv" button near the top of the remote (assuming its the original remote) was pressed before pressing the power button on the remote.
