Re: Convergence IC's

I would bet its convergence ICs under 20 bucks at most electronic parts stores. Usually though the ICs take out a couple resistors with them when they go.

My phillips 55pp9401 looks orange and purple , heres a picture of what it looks like, i tried the intellisense and it does nothing.

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. 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, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

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