Question about Philips 9P6040C 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Screen is all shrunken and in one corner...Convergence Problem... i think

On power up the picture is about one third the size of the actual screen size. The edges of the picture that is displayed are non uniform and almost have a rounded appearance. The picture displayed increases and decreases in size at random. After the set warms the picture gets larger and becomes more stable - sometimes. However the full picture size is never achieved. The color is also strange, but i think this is due to the strange size. I have read several other posts that say this is a convergence type problem with IC's or the Convergence Board. I looked for parts but there are no specifics, and i dont know exactly what to look for either.

I had the same issue. The screen would shrink and then expand over and over. After thrity minutes it would correct itself. 
After a few months of doing this it just broke - no sound and no videe but the power light was still on. 

I searched these forums but did not find clear instructions or kits on how to fix it. I gave up and called in a repair tech. He fixed my TV in less than 30 minutes. 

To help others I documented the fix and created a repair kit and step by step quide on how to fix the problem. You can find it here. http://www.magnavoxhelp.com

The picture does not fit the entire screen size of the television


Possible that the power supply is faulty as a low +B- main power can result in the picture reducing in the screen. Also if there is fault in the convergence section, failure of the drivers, failure of the capacitors, it is possible that the size can reduce.

Picture appears concave and shrunken and pulses in size


Replace Both of your STK convergence ICs STK392-570 If this is not number on your s use what it has on them. you can call MATs 1-800-628-1118 o Main STK is what is going bad when IC goes out all together TV will shut down and will not come on. So replace BOTH STKs ASAP! you will also need Heat sink compound to put on back of New ICs.

RCA D61W20 Projection Television with ITC222 chassis Here is the whole thing , took this machine apart last night the mirror is in good shape cleaned the lenses, picture is much brighter now! However still...


unfotunatly the itc222 has no convergence ics it uses a series of trsansiitors. the fact that u have some areas of the screen clear may mean you need a technician to do a service alignment. when you go into setup does the convergence crosshairs move up and down and side to side on both the blue and red? if they do their may not be a problem with the power board. ONe more thing if you replace this board you will still need a technician to do a service alighnment

Cannot fill screen with normal picture size setting


assuming you all have comcast and using an hdmi cable
first access menu (hit it twice) and go to set picture format, choose passthrough....or in your case auto hdmi

then turn box off, press guide and info on the front of the box, proceed through the setup, advanced is more in depth..lol...

select 1080, 720, and then either the standard or widescreen 480s to your liking.....

voila....

now check your tv settings to accommodate
