I need to adjust the red and blue convergence lines on my Phillips model number 60P8342 television. I have had a repairman adjust it with the remote before but don't know how he did it. Can you give me...


Go to your menu.
you will need to find where it says like brightness.picture and such under that option you will have a convergance option. you will need to go there. from there you will be able to converge the 2 colors using the remote.

Convergence problem, wavey at bottom some color distortion


Common problem on rear projection TVs. Either replace the convergence correction board or repair it. Usually a job for a technician or at least someone familiar with electronics. The fix is to replace the STKs and probably a couple of resistors. Can provide more info if needed.

Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • 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.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Repairing color television philips


Some tv's let you select menu from the buttons on the tv,on of the buttons will say menu and the volume and channel buttos will have a double function like an arrow to the right and left and arrow up and down,they also have a buttos that says select,press menu and use the others buttos to move thru the menus until you get to the color bar,if it is at minimum adjust it so you get your color back but if it is already in the middle the tv needs to be service.Philips sells universal remote controls that are already program to work your tv being a philips and you dont have to programe it and you can also access the menu.
