Question about Philips Televison & Video
I just bought a projection TV from someone who was moving and who said it was working. The problem looks like the common convergence problem that everyone talks about. (It looks like it's 3D but without the glasses.) However there is a big catch. The convergence is off only in 1080i, not in 480p.
It's perfect in 480p.
Nobody has ever mentioned, in regards to convergence problems in a Philips, that it only happens in one resolution (1080i) and not in 480p. In fact it appears that the convergence circuit is common in all resolutions. So how can that happen? If there were two convergence circuits, one for 1080i and another for 480p then I wouldn't be bothering with this posting but it appears that the same circuit is used at both resolutions.
Any ideas about what is going on with my tv? I'd be most grateful and happy if anyone could clear this up.
The only real test is to try to adjust the convergence for each color...Red and Blue...If you cant move both colors in all directions - up - down - left - right...then your Tv has a convergence problem. Try in both 480 and 1080...if it can't be adjusted - replace the parts. I just did mine the other day
