Question about Philips 55PP9401 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Three colors are not together

We have Dishnetwork, and the other TVs work fine. So the problem is not from anything else except for this TV itself. All three colors are not together and this happened yesterday without any disturbance to the TV. Starting about 3 months ago this TV set is giving red pictures sometimes when it is turned on and will become normal after several minutes.
I'm looking for solutions that I can do to fix it at home (by myself of course) because there is no philips service center in the area I live nor is worth it. It is about 7-year-old. Is it the end of the life?
Thanks for any suggestions.

    Same problem - EXACTLY. Only theory is that it has something to do with new invisible fence. (Doubt it.....)

    Did you just install an invisible fence?

I am thinking about buying a Samsung 72" DLP (Hlt7288wx/xaa) for $500. The seller says a tv repairman says it needs a color wheel replacement. Do you think this is something that would be difficult to...


Yes,tvs with a colors wheels design into it are more prone to brake down and more quickly than tvs without colors wheels design into it.The colors wheel in the tv spins at 12000 RPM at every cycles to make and let the tv Light Engine shine a beam of light into a colors wheel to make and have a colors spectrums to make it to works for the tv.No projection tv with a colors wheel are not easily to be replaced have go through alot of trouble to replace a colors wheel itself.The tv colors sit way back of the tv have to take out many tv mechanical tv frames bulk heads even than can come to the tv colors wheel itself to replace it.Take ur $500 buck buy a "40 LCD tv less worry less head aches.

You have a convergence problem. If you are handy, you may be able to repair this. The signal module will need reworked. The best repair for you, or some one you know, who is an electronic servicer can get help. Please see the website www.TvRepairKits.com. You will find the best repair kit.

Color changes


Your tv has three crt guns that correspond to how it makes colors.

If its just one color acting weird it might be the crt gun for red. That sucks cause it will be hard to replace. I think its possible to fix it but it might not be worth it... Sorry...

White arched lines appearing on dark/black screens.


it sounds like you are seeing the vertical retrace for all three colors together (white). Its possible that all three screen adjustments (red, green, blue) are off, but I suspect a problem with the screen power supply.
there is also a recall on this set

I had a repairman out and they replaced some major components to eliminate this problem and it cost about $500. This was a temporary solution and the color was never really satisfactory again. Donated the unit to Salvation Army. The new DLP TVs are worth checking out.
