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.

see if there is a "default" option, if not set everything back to the middle, if the colors are still off you sure its not the convergence?
most big screens allow you to change "color temperature" it's like a default adjustment for 3 different brightness levels.... ie...COOL, WARM picture will show obvious changes in brightness

Home screen color

Yes, the home (XMB) does turn color depending on the time of day. This is a default feature. I haven't seen it yellow that I can remember. But check it at different times and make sure it is changing to other colors as well.
