You will also need to check the 6.8 ohm resistors also. The sey uses STK392-120 ICs two of them. You can get the phillips DPTV305-DPTV345 convergence repair kit from which contains the two ICs and 12 6.8 ohm resistors plus instructions on CD. The DPTV and PTV chassis phillips all use that same kit.

Is a blu-ray player compatible with a rear projection tv phillip?

You need to use an HDMI connection from blu-ray player to the television. If your tv does not have an HDMI input the tv is probably to old and will not accept 1080P. If it does have an HDMI connection it should display a minimum of 1080i.

Blue screen with sound but nothing else!

I, too, acquired a Phillips without a manual and was experiencing a similar problem. My model is PTV 916, but if your TV has a "source select" button, say a prayer and press the button. From that point, I don't know what else I did, but I do get TV programs now.
