Philip's TV Model 55PP88620 Convergence Problems

Hi there my Tv's just 4 years old and I think the convergence Ic's are shot, there is blue lines which arc up in the top right and the bottom left corners. I have been reading how to change them and are pretty confident I can do it and was wondering if anyone had a Service Manual for this model and any other information to help me out as I was just quoted $480 to $680 to fix it and I've been off work for over 12 months with a crook back and can't afford that much when I know the parts aren't that expensive. Thanks Gazz.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....


  • 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.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some images of convergence problems.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Common 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.

I have some distored blue color across the screen


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


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,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

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

*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

Everything on the screen is doubled focus and it seems like the screen is calapsd in the middle


What you describe is probably a color convergence collapse, usually caused by a power amplifier failure, refer to the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esk4nYZKFcg if this video is close to what you see on your TV you will need to replace both power convergence IC, the model KP57WS510(model given in your post) calls for STK392-510 both are available through UED, email johnl@ued.net, the above link gives an idea on what is needed for the IC replacement, that is if you're thinking of repairing the problem yourself.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.

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

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

93a1209.pngCONVERGENCE SOLUTION

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from www.TvRepairKits.com

PT-47WX53 blue convergence PROBLEM


Sounds like you have a blue foldover in the convergence. Since tv has been worked on it could be bad ic, maybe not original, generic. I would say if you can open set and look in, look for the blue it should be marked. look for a loose connection. If you can have someone to gently tap around that blue amp and see if it moves are go away, it might be a simple loose connection and needs soldering. If not then my have to change ic again. Becareful cause set would need to be on to really check. Hope this helps.
