Question about Philips 51PW9363 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Red convergerce not working

When I turn the set on and there is a red double vision effect. It is more distorted in the upper corners then in the middle of the picture. I removed the back and covered the red flood light and the distortion goes away (but so does the red color). When I bring up the convergence cross hairs they will not vertically but they will move horizontally. Ive tried to fiddle with it but I am no expert. Any ideas?

Thank you

    I have the same issue with the red arch accross the screen.When it first happened i could turn the tv on and off and the red would sink up with the blue and green and it would be fine till it was turned off.Now it will not sink up anymore.Red bulb stays out of convergance.I have tried manual adjustment inside but it will not adjust so i turned the red drive almost all the way down,Has a blue tint to picture but it is watchable if needed.

Color distortion

Move any speakers or electrical devices away from the set. It could also be anything electronic or magnetic. Anything near the set that generates a magnetic or electromagnetic field could be causing the distortion.

The convergence amps need to be replaced.. Your set uses two STK392-120 Sanyo original Ics.. Also all the low ohm resistors in that circuit should be measured for change in value and replaced if not within tolerance..
