Question about Philips 46PP9302 46" Rear Projection Television
I have a 46-inch Philips Rear projection TV. Recently, its image has become distorted. I'd like to fix it myself and am pretty handy with electronics, I just don't know what to replace or fix.
For the most part, the image appears distorted due to one color being out of alighment or completely shop. Its almost as if it bows the screen. Its most noticable when watching CNBC or anything that runs a ticker across the bottom of the TV. In the middle of the screen at the bottom, one color rises, giving a double image in the middle of the screen at the bottom. Its also distorted in the upper left and right corners. Everything esle seems O.K. So I can watch the TV for the most part, but the distortion is a little annoying.
Any suggestions of what needs replacing? I'm willing to give it a shot, but need some advice. Thank you in advance. Robert
You have a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms.
Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed in but stationary.
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kit for your exact model. The kit inlcludes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc. Everything you need to fix it yourself. Its an easy fix.
