Convergence problem on a Philips projection TV

I have a Philips projection TV model # 60pp935217. When i try to adjust the red convergence it will go up or down but not left or right. Single or multipoint red. So i guess i need to replace the IC for red ? can anyone tell me the part number for the red convergence and should i replace the one for blue or is it better to leave it alone ?
Or is there somthing else i should try first ?

    I have somewhat of the same problem when I turned on my 60" Phillips 60pp202/17f this afternoon the writing on the screen is double blue and red need help in correcting the problem.

    I replaced the two IC's and put the unit back together and now it wont power up. I have power coming in and checked the fuse next where the power cable comes in and it seems to be ok.

    Any suggestions ?

    Ok. Im embarrassed to say that i had two cables swapped. Now the TV turns on for 10 -15 seconds and then shuts itself off.The screen does not come on except for a flicker just before it shuts down and no sound.

    I checked the solder joints no bridging.

    any ideas on how i should proceed from here ?

    Thank you for your patience.

    I have the problem with the blue convergence. I have blue ghosts and tried to reset the factory settings and it didn't help. Is this problem easy to fix. I am quite handy with electronics and haven't worked on a tv yet. If I have to have a professional come in the house to fix it do you know how much it should be to fix it so I don't get ripped off. Plus if it is easy to fix does anyone have a schematic?

They should be STK392-120 but check the numbers on yours to be positive. They are located on the extreme left of the chassis looking inside the back panel mounted on a heat sink. They will have STK Numbers stamped on them. Yes you should change both of them they cost 10.00 each at You will need heat sink compound as well but this is better purchased at Radio Shack 2.00 per tube. Put a good coat of Heat sink compound on the back side of the new ICs. Also check over the resistors on the board next to the ICs sometimes 1 or 2 of those burn when the Cs go out. Let me know if you need anything further

    check the solder connections on the ICs to make sure their not bridged.Also check the connections on any wire plugs that were removed.

    Did you check for any burned resistors near the Convergence ICs? Usually 1 or 2 of these flame resistant resistors will short open when the ICs go out. They are real easy to locate their are about 8 of them they all lok identical and they have no color ands on them. Check these resistorssee if any are open.

Bad color

Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • 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.
Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

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

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

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.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.
