Question about Philips 60PP9601 60 in. Rear Projection Television

Open Question

I have a Philips 2001 60PP9601 projection TV, the #4 HD-Y- PB-PR input works fine, my picture is good, television as normal. [ ALL LAMPS ARE ON, BLUE GREEN AND RED] The problem I have is that all the other aux. video inputs #3, #2 etc, etc all have a blueish-green color. Video games and DVD movies can still be seen, just blueish-green. [RED LAMP NOT TURNING ON IN THESE MODES] I know this television is getting old, but not ready to part with yet. I would like to know what the problem may be, and what it would take to fix, what part or parts, how hard for do-it-yourself? Please Help!

I have to suggest a solution for this problem. I sell tv's for a living. Never buy a philips projection TV. Fortunately you can't anymore, but don't ever think about buying one again.

SOURCE: HDTV-AT&T UVERSE

First of all, is your blue "HD" light lit up on the front of your Uverse box?

If yes, then you're in HD

If No, you need to check your connections from Box to TV
1.Those Red-Blue-Green cables are for video only, they don't carry sound and shouldn't be connected to audio outs. Audio needs a seperate cable. Make sure your Red isn't on the audio out which is also red. Make sure your blue and green aren't switched with each other either. Check that at both ends.
2. Try an HDMI cable. It will carry audio and video together and it's one cord instead of 5.
3. What brand/model of TV is it? Is it an older projection TV? The HD tuner might be shot. The individual color tubes commonly fail after a few years.
4. Are you selecting 720p or 1080i from your TV's menu or from the Uverse menu? You'll need to set it through the Uverse box, not the TV.
5.Follow -Menu -Settings -Aspect Ratio to change to 720 or 1080. This should start an autotest which will scramble your picture for about 5 seconds, then bring you back to a menu asking you to keep settings or revert back settings. If you never see that question pop up, then your TV isn't supporting the HD, and you settings will be rolled back automatically. If the question does pop up and you can read it, select "keep settings" and press OK. Your blue HD light should come on the front of the box now.

SOURCE: bad color

Your TV most likely has one of two 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.

f0900cb.jpg
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.

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.

I have a WT46805 and the color is fine for standard video input, but the when same video content is sent in through the HD input, the resolution is fantastic but the color is almost a monochromatic green. ...


While you are in the HD input look in the TV's menu, I think it is in video settings for a setting for RGB or Y, Pr, Pb. If it is set to RGB you will get that green picture. If you are not in the HD input that setting will not show up in the menu.

I am attempting to connect a Verizon Fios QIP6200-2 HD set top box to my Mitsubishi WT-46805 HD TV using the Y, Pr and Pb RCA connections (no HDMI port on TV) I cannot get any HD channels to work.


The set will have two component inputs, one is NOT HD.

You want to connect to the DTV input which if you look from the back will be marked 480/1080 I .

Also double check the connections to be sure blue-red-red and green to green.

How to connect a dvd player to lcd tv


Your DVD player's output is Composite Video (the yellow connector) plus stereo audio (the red and white connectors, for right and left audio)

The inputs on your TV are for Component Video, which splits the video signal into three cables (Y for brightness, Pb and Pr for blue and red, respectively)

Check your TV to see if it has a composite input (single yellow connector, labeled "video" or "composite")

And be sure to let me know if this helps!

When componet is hook up for hd


My first guess would be that the component connections are not matched. Check the component method and make sure that both the source and the TV are set the same. There are two methods:

1) RGB
2)Y,Pr,Pb

If the set is set for RGB and you are sending Y,Pr,Pb the picture will look a bit purple.

Yes, you must get a HD box. Digital is not HD quality. You will use the hd inputs on the jack panel that are green = Y
blue = Pb
red = Pr
Audio will be Red & White ( L+R )

Only green when using HD component cables


Your hookup may be wrong, you may have things reversed in your component HU. Recheck your color code on y, pb and pr.
