Problem with intellisenses

After using the intellisense focus feature, the colors are not lining up correctly. The red & green are approx 1/2" from each other. Before adjusting intellisense, there was no problem. On a/v 4 - with component hookups, convergence is fine, but every other input shows the same convergence problem.

    Thanks for the response! Input 4 is the HD input from my cable box - component video cables. My cable box works fine both on HD channels, and regular digital channels. (I use the same inputon the TV for both) - 1080i. All the aspect ratios work fine on this input - 16x9 or 4x3, I can switch the mode on my cable box, and don't experience any problems on any of them.

    Its only the other inputs that seem to have the problem.

    Thanks again for any help you can provide!

My picture seems to be okay, but I am getting double vision. a blue line on top of a yellow line. I don't have the original remote and cannot get it to use the intellisense feature. Can this be corrected?


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

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.

Everything is shadowed and the picture itself seems to be a bit darker. Tried running Intellisense, came back with '4'... I have my owners manual and there is nothing about Intellisense, not how to use it,...


Your TV most likely has one or more 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.

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.


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 www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Your recent DVD Region issue Premium


Hi Worldvet, there was no link behind windows registry, I think intellisense does not work on words that have a link already.

I forgot about that problem, I posted again, this time with the links, my first post was just a bit c..p, that is also reason for the confusion.

Yes, I noticed intellisense is confusing things, as it gets mixed with our links, I wonder if it would be possible having intellisense links in green, so that they dont get mixed with our links.
