Our Phillips Protjection TV model: 55P9161, picture is very dark, and fuzzy. There are tones of Greens and ghosting. We have followed convergance, and the other tips on the Phillips site but nothing has...

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

Tosh widescreen ghosting vertical lines

there is no convergence adjust in a 32" tv. Convergence is done when there is more than 1 picture tube, ie; 50" projection sets have 3 tubes so convergence can go out. post the model number of your set and we can help more, BMW Rider

Color ghosting on left side

A magnetic field such as would come from a speaker might cause the ghosts but would not stop your set from coming on when it's hot. You may have a horizontal deflection problem such a bad flyback transformer or some other component that gets worse with temperature. You need to have it checked out by a technician. Stargazer

Ghosting and popping noises

slag, Has the cable signal been branched off to another TV (or more) from the same feed? Ghosting and shadows are usually the result of bad impedance matches on those lines. Try connecting the prime TV directly to the cable box (or cable jack) output and note if there is any improvement. Make sure the cable itself is of the RG-6 type (not RG-59) and has no sharp bends or kinks. The center pin of the cable should be clean without corrosion. The RF IN jack on the TV should be checked to make sure the threads for the connector are clean and the plug should be attached firmly but not too tight. These steps should help solve this at least assuming the cable signal is good. [Checking it shows the "level" coming off the pole, not necessarily the quality of that level.] Hope this helps.
