Phillips 60" projection TV Double vision

We just got this TV about 2 almost three years ago and yesterday it was fine today I went to turn it on and the picture has double vision and red and blue is the color of the double vision items.Also the bottom of the screen is in a wave pattern with the same double vision and colors. Any Idea what may have cause this problem? And if so How much would it cost to be fixed?

    As stated, I have also got double vision now, and I had absolutely now problem prior. I can solder, and on a previous solution, I noticed where someone had given the part # for the ICs and resistor...I would welcome the opportunity to repair this myself, since this is huge and awkward to transport. Thank you, Dwayne

This is a convergence problem and is either bad connections at the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder, you can repair this yourself. Let me know if you wish to repair this and I can provide you with additional details.

Based on what you described I would say your TV has the "shrinking and expanding" fault. Its a common problem on that model and the symptoms can range from the video shrinking and expanding or no video or no audio....You can read more about this fix on the site www.TvRepairKits.com

Phillips 51pp9303h/17 red and green double vision of writen words and bowed line of red green at bottom. some objects in show look real shiney. and double vision of others.


Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • 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.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

For more more examples and find a fix using this link on Fixya http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull

Common 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.

60" Rear Projection TV


sounds like a convergence chip problem...

here is my general post for the 51 inch you'll have to look at the link for the manual and check to see if you have the STK392-120 chips or somthing bigger in the 60"


51MP392H/17
you need 2 Convergence IC's STK392-120's (120's and 150's will work) of course order 2 of the same type I'm using replacement 150's they allow for a little higher heat and were cheaper ALSO you need to replace the 12 resistors with 6.8 ohm metal film resistors, make sure they are metal film! don’t skimp out here I did and then they blew and fried my IC's and I had to replace everything again!

Great reference link that I posted
pictures on, check out page 3

Where I got my parts that worked:
Suburban Electronics

Manual Library you should find all you need here:

What you need:
(2) STK392-120 OR STK392-150 IC
chips
(12) 6.8 Ohm Metal Film resistors
set of star screw drivers
15 watt pencil solder pencil, DO NOT use a high watt iron you will fry the surface mounted item.
good leaded solder, and flux

Phillips 60 in. rear projection approx. 10 years old


This is a common problem with the older models. The opt chip fails. You can get a repair kit at www.magnavoxhelp.com. After a few months of getting smaller and smaller the audio and video will go out but the power light will remain lit.
