Question about Philips 60PP9202 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Screen I fixed the colors on the screen. But when I moved to my house the top and bottom of the screen have this hour glass look. It's not black it shows the picture completey but the top and bottom have these almost like bumps. I was told by the person I bought it from they had the same thing and they could fix it with the remote but they can't remember how.

Hi Sandy, the problem with your TV is called "convergence". It can be a problem with the convergence board or more likely in this model in the power supply or deflection circuits. Unfortunately, troubleshooting by a technician is required.

My color is off on my whole tv i have a 52''projection toshiba cinema series the old big style and was wondering how to adjust the colors so they match up

Sounds like what was wrong with mine! Take the remote and hit menu, then scroll to the Video Adjust button, then adjust the "convergence" or the color tone, brightness, contrast etc. My repair man did this and it helped get the picture much more life-like. He said over time they get out of line and just need a few adjustments. He just charged the $50 house call. Good luck, hope you can fix it.

Hour glass bowing on the top and bottom of my HCP4752W Samsung

Check the resistors near the ic, and the fuses to the ic's, i bet you will find an open fuse. the fuse will look similar to a resistor without color bands. use a dvm and set it on ohms, with the tv turned off.

Pt-47wx49e convergence problem

I just replaced the 2 convergance chips, but it did not seem to fix the problem. I then tested all the resistors that feed the convergence chips anf there was a 2.2 ohm fusable blown. IT was R7050 on mine. That seemed to fix it so that I could adjust all the colors through the convergence 2 screen. There seems to be a slight bow near the bottom when you look at the c2 screen, but not noticable when you are watching a picture. Since I got this broken, I am not sure how perfect it should be.

If anyone can send me the service manual, I would appretiate it. Thanks.
