Question about Philips 60PP9202 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Menue and multipoint

Sometimes my menu will come up on the screen and sometimes it will not. My convergance is good on the red and blue, my multipoint blue is good, but my red is way out and only some of my crosses will move. "Phillips" says the convergance board probably needs to be replaced to fix the red but will this help with the menu problem, and where can I buy boards,chips, and the scamatics for a 60pp9202/17f? Phillips will not sell them to you unless you are an authorized dealer.

Re: menue and multipoint

I fixed this tonight -- it was the convergence amps, which I purchased for $20. Thought it was the convergence board at first but it turned out to be the amps, which commonly fail after 3 years or so.

Blue line at bottom of screen

In the customer menu select convergence and see if in the multipoint mode the blue on the lower crosses will not move in some direction. If this is the case you have a convergence problem and I can tell you what is involved in this repair.

Multipoint blue convergence cannot be adjusted

Sound like you need to replace the STK's and any blown pico's on convergence board.

I have a Philips 51PW9303 Rear Projection TV that had blue shadows around the sides of the screen and now has a green and red bowed line at bottom. Does I need a convergence board to solve this?

If the following doesn't work the tubes could be at the end of life:
Adjusting convergence:
Note: For best results, the Projection TV needs to be turned on for 15 minutes or longer before adjusting the picture tubes (convergence).

To adjust the convergence of the picture tubes:
  1. Press the 'MENU/SELECT' button on the remote.
  2. Press CURSOR RIGHT to enter the PICTURE menu.
  3. Use CURSOR DOWN and RIGHT to select and enter MANUAL CONVERGE.
  4. Press CURSOR RIGHT to select CONVERGE RED or press CURSOR RIGHT and DOWN to select CONVERGE BLUE.
  5. A crosshair will be shown on the screen. If there is any red or blue fringe around the crosshair, use CURSOR RIGHT, LEFT, UP, DOWN to try and merge the fringe colors with the crosshair.
  6. Press the 'MENU/SELECT' button to return to MANUAL CONVERGE menu.
  7. Press the 'EXIT' button to exit the menu.
If you are satisfied with the convergence you may stop now. Otherwise, you can continue and adjust the convergence more using mult ipoint convergence.
To Adjust multipoint convergence:
  1. Press the 'MENU/SELECT' button on the remote.
  2. Use CURSOR RIGHT to enter the PICTURE menu.
  3. Use CURSOR DOWN and RIGHT on the cursor ring to select and enter MANUAL CONVERGE.
  4. Press CURSOR RIGHT and DOWN on the cursor ring to select MULTIPOINT RED or MULTIPOINT BLUE.
  5. A grid of crosshairs will appear on the screen. If there is any red or blue fringe around any of them, press CURSOR RIGHT to enter NAVIGATE mode.
  6. Use CURSOR RIGHT, LEFT, UP, and DOWN to move to a crosshair that has a color outline.
  7. Press the 'EXIT' button to enter ADJUST mode.
  8. Use CURSOR RIGHT, LEFT, UP, and DOWN to merge the color with the crosshair.
  9. Press the 'STATUS/EXIT' button to return to NAVIGATE mode. Repeat as necessary.
  10. Press the 'MENU' button to return to the MANUAL CONVERGE menu.
  11. Press CURSOR DOWN until SAVE MULTIPOINT is selected.
  12. Press CURSOR RIGHT to save the multipoint settings.
  13. Press the 'EXIT' button to exit the menu.

When I set the Directv receiver box to the 1080i resolution mode, the picture on the TV is ghost mode with red and blue outlines around each figures. please help. When I set the receiver to the 480i...

This may sound strange but I have seen something like this once before in this model----In the customer menu select Convergence---DO THIS WITH NOTHING CONNECTED TO THE SET FOR SIGNAL-- IF THE multipoint convergence looks ok---I saw one of these sets where the problem was the box that was giving the set signal---easy to find out if you have them swap that box out for another---The TV does not know(convergence wise) whether you are 480 or 1080---yes, sometimes the set needs to be adjusted in each of these modes for Convergence---the set I saw the convergence was ok in 480 but out the window in 1080----he had another box in another room and when we swapped it the problem was gone.

Let me know if this helps you---in the 480 you can confirm this by hooking a DVD etc and if that looks good---suspect the box.

If you have any questions let me know--I am here to help.

Picture on tv has blue and red going through the top and can people look like they had 2 heads on tv toshiba 42pw23p

try to align it by going into the convergence setting in your on screen menu, some proj tv have a multipoint conv alignment, this might do it for you, if it doe not then therre might be a problem with the red and blue convergence amps and on this model the digital conv module(dcm) can also be at fault.

I have a yellow line on the right side of my Toshiba 50 rear projection TV and yellow shadows around people

It sounds like a convergence problem---go into the customer menu and select convergence---set should offer center and multipoint adjustment--in the multipoint look to see if the outer crosses adjust--if red or blue will not adjust somewhere--bad convergence IC's.

Blue Multipoint converge failure Philips 55PP9753

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

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,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

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

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*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

PHILIPS 50P8341 60 IN.

Check the other posts for convergence problems. This may be what you're experiencing. Have you tried bringing it in with multipoint convergence? It's under Menu -> Picture -> Manual Converge -> Multipoint Red and Multipoint Blue.
