Question about Philips 60P8342 60" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

Phillips DPTV 335 troubleshoot

Having problems with the screen. The colors are out of alignment. I've been doing some research & I have seen "multiple" suggestions on replacing the convergence "chips" P/N: STK392-120. Would this be a valid troubleshoot? If so, where can I get these "Convergence" chips & what price ranges? Can they be purchased at Radio Shack, Best Buy or Circuit City?
I need some help with this!!! I'm missing out on NFL Network, Basketball and soon maybe even the NFL Draft.

Please Help me.

All projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video or dead set) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

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. In some cases the TV will also not show any video. 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.

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 pics of convergence problems.

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.

Phillips 60pw9363 Which IC is red and which is blue


Thats the DPTV 335 series chassis when the IC blows it will usually take out 1 or 2 6.8 ohm resistors along with it. Look at the resistors right next to the ICs you will notice 1 or 2 with a little discoloration in the middle replace those and your set should be back to working just fine. Let me know if you need more help. These resistors are easy to spoy they all look alike and shouldnt have any bands on them they will be stamped 6R8 ohm 1W J
