Question about Philips 55PP9401 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

My TV has NeVeR been moved. Suddenly, the image is doubled. If you wear 3-D glasses, the image looks fine. My son says it gives him a headache after a few hours of playing video games with 3-D shades on. Don't you pity the poor boy? lol Could you please advise me of what my problem might be & any possible solutions? for the TV that is. : } Thank You. Angela

If it looks like the attached photos at all, it is a convergence problem and it can be repaired in two ways: either at or by a shop or if someone is handy it can be a do it yourself repair.

The left side of the picture is distorted with a double image. The right side is fine. As things such as the stock symbols on CNBC scroll across from right to left on the screen, they start out looking...


Hi,

It's a convergence issue. Go into the main TV menu under video settings and look for convergence. If it has an auto convergence select that and wait a minute the TV will adjust itself and give you a clear picture.
If the TV does not have an auto convergence and just regular convergence than select this. It will give you a grid pattern on your TV and you have to move the cursor (using TV remote) and adjust each "point" so that each line is perfectly white. If you notice red or blue anywhere on that "line" then you have to adjust using the up, down, left and right arrow keys to "line up the red and blue lines with the nearest white line. It takes time and patience to do, but when completed, all lines on the grid pattern should be pure white and you will have a great looking picture.
You have to do this will all TV inputs (Video1, Video2 and so on) the reason Zoom looks good, is because you never used that screen as much and so the lenses didn't have a chance to get out of synch.
RPTV's are made of the three lenses (red, Blue and Green) and as you watch TV, these lenses slowly get out of alignment. So you should do a convergence about twice a year to make sure nothing is out of whack.

You can pay somebody to do it, but may cost you like 100.00 or do it yourself, it is very easy just tedious and time consuming. If you have the auto convergence than your golden because this is the easiest way to "reset" the TV.

Hope this will help in solving the problem....

My rca projection tv has blue and green images like a 3D picture would without your 3D glasses, a double vision image and no other colors


sounds like the sensors are out of focus and your red sensor isnt turning on. look in the back of the tv for a master reset button or in your menu screen some sort of "Flash focus" or "convergence". They will realign the 3 sensors.

I am seeing a double image whel I look through my binocular.


Hi,

Most binoculars should allow you to grip the two sides and pull them closer together to fit the distance between your eyes.. Have you tried this?
What you should see is the two images come together to form one.

If you have tried this already and you still get the two images then it's possible the model is just too wide for your eyes.. If they're new you could try return them for another type that fit better..

If this works for you then here are the instructions for setting up the binoculars to give you the best result for your eyesight..


This is more common than you would think.. Here's how to set up a pair of binoculars to suit yourself.
Any good binocular will be able to do this and the reason is to allow you to adjust them for the difference in strenght between your two eyes. I wear glasses myself and sometimes contact lenses so it's good to be able to quickly adjust them.

1. turn the binoculars over so you are looking at the underside.
2. on the eyepieces can you see on one eye(usually the right eye) a little plus - minus marking. The eyepiece should be able to rotate a little to each side of this marking.
3. Set the rotating eyepiece to the middle setting.
4. Look through the binoculars as normal and bring the two sides together until you form the two circles that you see into one.
5. Pick an object app 10 meters away.
6 Presuming that the adjustable eyepiece is on the right hand side then close your right eye, look at the middle distance object you chose with your left eye and use the central focusing knob/wheel in the middle to bring your left eyepiece into focus.
7. Now, close your left eye and adjust the rotating right hand eyepiece while looking at the same object until your right eyepiece is in focus.
8. The binoculars should now be set for the differences in strenght of your eyes and you can use the middle focus control as normal.

Most binoculars have a soft rubber eyepiece that can be folded back for people who wear glasses but I, like most people I know who wear glasses, find it horribly uncomfortable.

This method allows you to set them for yourself and if someone else uses your binoculars you can quickly reset them for you.

Hope this helps...


- Oh yeah, sorry, forgot to mention.. This set up is so you can use them without wearing your glasses.. Much more comfortable!!

POOR PICTURE QUALITY


The convergance IC's need to be replaced along with possibly a pico fuse in the same circuit.Theres a large heat sink with two IC's starts with a STK number,replace them and that should take care of it.

Out of focus


If there is a diopter adjustment, for the viewfinder (to take into account a person wearing glasses) then that may have been changed and images just appear out of focus(in the viewfinder) when in reality, they may not be, if the camera is in autofocus mode.
Check these settings. Since I do not know what kind of camera this is I cannot be sure whether this diagnosis is valid.
What do the images look like when you download them?

Double Image


If the picture looks like you need 3-D glasses to view it, the problem is you have two bad convergence IC's. if that was the case, 450 bucks is a bit steep for this repair. It should run you about 250 to 300 bucks. Good Luck
