Convergence on Projection screen

More than likely the repair company used cheap chips when they did the repair. The cheap ones fail real quick. Goto the site They have built a kit that you can do yourself. It includes name brand chips and a photo instuction guide.

Arched pink lines across screen. Now green and pink double stacked wording.

Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Arch on top and bottom of tv

You can try adjusting the convergence manually, but this is not a good symptom for your TV to have.

I read that these sets have a problem with the yokes on tubes sliding down some- there for causing this problem make sure yokes are all the way up on neck of picture tubes,this may fix your problem!

Philips 50PP9202 50 in. Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television?

Hello Anthony14,


This is an indication the the red convergence amplifier has goone bad you will need to replace the convergence correction modules. Now before replacing these you may want to make sure that the bias resistors and the zener diodes are ok. The convergence ICs are part number STK329-110 or STK329-150.


I would suggest that you get a schematic and equipment to make the needed tests, or take the set to a shop to replace the bad components.


I hope this helps,


Thank you,
