    ok,just hold on..will let you know if there is any manual..

  • Priya darshan May 08, 2008

    Ok,

    here is a solution.Did you get a user manual with it?

    The user manual for your remote can be accessed when you login to your account.

    To access your user manual:


    1. Log into your account in the Harmony software,

    2. On the right side of the screen click on More Help in the Tip Center.

    3. In the new window which opens, click the 'User Manual' tab.

    4. Click on the User Manual link.

    5. The PDF of the user manual for your remote will then open in the software.

    In addition, you can find a user manual by doing the following:


    1. Go to the main Logitech Support page.

    2. Select your product (ie. Harmony Remotes > H-880) from the Product drop-down list.

    3. Type the word 'Manuals' into the search field and click the Search button.

    4. Your user manual article will be returned.

    You can also get one by emailing them...

    My solution no. is 2 so if you want to accept my solution as fixya then please only rate the sol. no. 2

We no longer have the remote for model 55pp9401 and we have a convergence problem what can we do


Here's the Philips support URL for your TV:
www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=55PP9401&slg=en&scy=US

PDF download of your Owners' manual:
http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/5/55pp9401/55pp9401_dfu_aen.pdf

Here's what Philips FAQ says about your convergence procedure:
Question How do I adjust convergence (align colors)? Answer Note: For best results, the Projection TV needs to be turned on for 15 minutes or longer before adjusting the picture tubes (convergence).

Press the INTELLISENSE button on the remote (under the flap). During the convergence process DO NOT press the INTELLISENSE button again and DO NOT move the Projection TV.

So, I think you're going to need to order a replacement remote.
search "replacement remote" at http://www.philips.com

I have a philips 55 and all of asudden my tv looks like its in 3D.


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 photos of convergence problems.

42d3683.jpg

7859b01.jpg

e87380c.jpg
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. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

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 fix

Intellisense button


If the model number on the set is 55PP9401/55 you have an interesting set----this model says Philips but was made by Hitachi---they made them for Philips for one year while Philips was gearing up to produce their own sets---very good set and is better than the Philips sets that came after it.
It uses (if it is this model) two STK-392-110 CONVERGENCE IC's----both need to be replaced and the set adjusted---no need for an original remote---with the set engaged in the convergence adjustment mode( there is a micro switch on the front of the main circuit board) A HITACHI REMOTE CAN THEN BE USED TO ADJUST THE CONVERGENCE. Hope this was helpful.

Magnavox energy saver projection tv-cannot remove closed caption


If you can bring up the FEATURES menu and can navigate with the Harmony remote scroll down the the CAPTIONS options. If you can turn display OFF then you should be all set.

If you do not have the manual for this set you can see it at:

it is not reccommended for game console to be played on a projection t.v because projection tv's have three color bulbs in them and the conversion is different and if it happens to work it has been known to have burn the games image in the screen after awhile.. usually the store doesn't tell youthat unless you ask them about playing game consoles on a projection tv
