Question about Philips 55PP9363 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Having trouble adjusting lenses and color to correct settings.

When we adjust the lenses and other settings, we either get discolored screen, too bright of a screen or fuzzy screen. We are trying to find out how to set the right amounts in order to have a tv with the right colors, alignments, brightness and everything. My husband has been working on this tv now for 6 days trying to adjust everything. He's tried it all. We just brought the tv over from his parents house, where it worked just fine. Please help with this problem, thanks

Are you adjusting the TV using the menu or did you open the set up and turn the knobs. I hope you did not adjust the knobs without some instruction.

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.

Just bought the Olympus pen EP-L1 Im having trouble find lenses for my new toy any suggestions?


You don't state why you're having trouble finding the correct lenses, but they are easily available from online suppliers. Traditional retail outlets tend to stock very few of them though simply because there isn't sufficient demand to buy in and keep stocks of products which are constantly having updates and price adjustments.

You can use all Olympus Micro Four-Thirds lenses and most Panasonic Micro Four-Thirds (although to use some of the latter you may need to update the body or lens firmware.

Regular Four-Thirds mount lenses can also be used via an adapter but may not be fully functional.

Unlike other lens mounting systems, you can also get adapters to use almost any lens on Micro Four-Thirds system cameras, but the lens will typically have to be used in a fully manual mode with the aperture set fully open for composition and focus and then manually stopped down for metering and image capture.

Unable to align cross hairs on the blue lense. Dose the lense need to be replaced?


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
•Screen looks 3D
•Colors don't line up
•One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
•Screen is bowed or warped.
•TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.

My convergence is off I believe the antenna from the Wii game through it off now my t.v. shows a 3d picture. I opened the back and adjusted the red lense but the convergence is still off it doesn't show 3d...


keep adjusting the tv until the tv shop has to charge you twice as much for having to correct all your adjustments and for repairing the convergence board why would you adjust something that is factory set? did you think the lens slipped out place?

Color on tv cannot be adjusted. too much red. lamp has already been replaced.


A discolored Blob, loss of one color or blotchy pattern usually in the center of the screen. The problem is becoming all too common with Hitachi projection sets. What happens is that one of the lenses in the optical block (or light engine) starts to burn or discolor due to overheating because of a blocked air filter causing poor air (cooling) circulation. Nothing can be done when the damage is too far-gone except to replace the light engine-at a cost that makes it not worth repair. if the damage is minimal than to reduce further damage, the air filter should be replaced. The Light engine needs to be removed in order to replace the air filter. Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Setting color and focus inside case


The only way to do that is by eye. To Adjust the screen controls the best thing to do is turn them all down then slowly adjust one up until you get retrace lines (arched lines across the tv) then turn it down until the lines re not visible then go about 1/4 turn more, repeat this for the 2 remaining colors, after that its just done to eye for the best color. if you are still having trouble getting the color right you can go in the menu to the video settings and turn the color all the way down then you will have a black and white picture and you can adjust for a perfect black and white picture then turn the color back up in the menu.
As for the focus controls its best done by covering 2 of the tubes so you only have one color on the screen then adjusting to the best looking focus for that color. then repeat this for the other 2 tubes.
If you need more help or clarification please let me know

You probably just have dust build up on the lenses. You can remove the lower back (with the set unplugged) and once you have that done you now have access to clean the lenses using a soft cloth and wipe them down. Don't adjust the lenses as you will spend more time correcting a problem that you create by doing so. Good luck..
