Question about Philips 60PP9363 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Philips 60PP9363 colors not right. TV is 5 years old, the convergence appears to be fine in that all of the colors line up fine, but they are not the right shade. The green and blue are both teal, with very little difference. Same with red and orange. Its not bad for tv but animation or video games requiring a vivid green, like guitar hero or borderlands, just look bad. Nothing in the system settings seems to effect individual colors, and nothing seems to help. How should I go about opening this thing to look inside, and what should I look for?

We have 2 Nos Philips Rear Projection TV Sets procured in year 2004. I would like to confirm the effective useful life of these tvs as I am facing problems like convergence. Is there any aging effect on...


These tv's have an expected life of 8 years at normal usage so your tv's are starting to show signs of old age.
Yes, the failure of the power circuits in the convergence board are a common occurrence in tv's of that age. So common that other companies have started to put together refurbishment/repair kits for them. This is the one for this tv - Philips 60PP9363

Double visions and focus on the picture.


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.

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.

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.

Do not adjust any knobs as instucted in the previous thread if you TV have a convergence problem. Doing so will only make things worse. The blog does however show you how to fix other common problems with these sets.

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.

2c07611.pngSolution #1

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. 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.

You have a convergence chip problem. You need to get a kit from www.TvRepairKits.com.

Note: The longer you run your set with a convergence problem the more problems you will have. Turn it off and get it fixed.
