The red gun on my Philips 55PW93 6317f is not aligning properly. Using the remote I am unable to align it and it doesn't look like the red will move at all during calibration. The Blue/Green are aligning and calibrating fine both automatically and manually.
What could cause this? Is there an easy fix? I've seen on other posts talk of IC units? Is this something a blown IC would cause? Any help would be appreciated. I'd really like to get my TV back up and running.

Re: Red Offset Image
Yes the convergence ICs need to be replaced they are both STK392-120 ICs and you will also need four 6.8 ohm 1 watt resistors you can get replacment ICs and resistors at the following link and they provide free instalation instructions with pictures and free on line instant messageing to help you do the repair yourself. Heres the link. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/

Your other model was more than likely a CRT projector where you coulod manually align the Red/Green/Blue guns. The one you have now is more than likely an LCD projector which can't be readily aligned. Sounds like the panel is failing.
You have two problems, you have a convergence problem, the convergence board needs repair, and the other problem is the coolant needs change in the guns, (CRT's) and you are looking at 500 on repairs, you would be better off getting a new LCD.
Your convergence is out. If it's just out a little, you can adjust with your remote or with older sets there are knobs. If it's way out then your convergence block went out and you'll need to replace it yourself if you're technically adept or take it into the shop for repair.
The phillips DPTV305 - DPTV345 convergence repair kit is the right kit for your model which should solve that issue. The kit is available from www.tvrepairworld.com and also contains the CD with instructions.
The blue is caused by the RGB gun alignment. Green is a fixed gun and Red and Blue are adjustable. In my Mitsubishi, the guns are motorized and can initially be adjusted (course) with the remote. There are more detailed adjustments that can be made if you purchase the service manual. I paid approx $19.00 on line 3 years ago and it is a complete manual. Unfortunetly I don't remember the site. To do a complete alignment, there are steps to take: starting with entering a code using the remote to enter the setup. To make a long story short, I had my tv aligned 3 or 4 times over 5 years under the extended warranty. After watching the tech, who was good, but under time constraints, it was clear that most anyone could do it if they could read and follow instructions.
could be a couple of things. 1 the convergence is messed up, go throught the set up and make sure the blue and red "+" are aligned to create a white image, If using component input make sure the red is to the red the blue is to the blue, try different cables for the components blue and red. Try S-video or Composite, if the problem persists, check the menu to ensure all the colors are set even, if the problem still persists,then you may have a blown projection gun.
Problem solved, needed to get the universal remote i was using set up with the proper code. Once I did that I was able to use the remote to set up the single & multi-zone Red & Blue Alignment. I also pulled the back plate off and manually adjusted the RGB focus knobs. It seems to be working just fine now.
Thanks to all the other posts.
Select each color. all you have to do is align it with white by using the directional arrow keys - Simple! For fun, Grab a pair of red and blue 3d glasses and offset the red and the blue channels. Yes, I have too much time on my hands. Good luck :)
It sounds to me like the convergence amps themselves have failed. Ic7001 and Ic7002, both are STK392-110 Sanyo built Ic's and not an expensive job for a qualified shop. When shopping around for a shop to repair it ask what they charge for replacement of the convergence amps in this unit. And take the unit to them to save pickup and delivery charges...
Have a great day!
