Question about Philips 50P8341 50" Rear Projection Television
I have the same problem with the color what can i do?
If the convergence will not adjust in the customer menu you have a bad convergence IC---this set uses two (50P8341) STK-392-110 IC'S----BOTH, along with any bad resistors around them need to be replaced and the set adjusted with the original remote that came with this set----Most of the Philips do not use the 392-110 chips----this set if made around 2000 may be a Hitachi inside---they made sets for 1 year for Philips.
If you can do the repair yourself you can save a lot of money----you can buy a pair of the chips for about 12 dollars plus shipping on Ebay.
If you cannot do the repair--shop around your area as most shops charge 300-400 for this repair. Whoever you get to do it make sure BOTH chips are replaced!
If a shop says it has to go to the shop--keep looking as any good tech can do this repair in about 1 hour in your home------I have done hundreds of these repairs and charge 200-250 total depending on the set.
If you have any questions or need advice reply to this posting here and I will assist you---I am here to help people.
