20 Most Recent Philips 9P6031C 60" Rear Projection Television Questions & Answers


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.

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.

This is a common problem on certain models of Philips Magnavox TV sets. The most common symptom is the screen will shrink and expand over and over. After the TV heats up for a while the video will work like normal. After a few weeks or months your TV will eventually stop working and not have video. You can get complete parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com

I may salvage the parts from my set if I cant fix my problem for a reasonable price. I have a projection screen for the 9P6031C, that I may sale if I cant fix the convergence on my set. The screen is in mint condition.

Hello sdbeynon,

This usually denotes a problem in the high voltage section either trippler or the IHVT. Since this section of the Tv has hazardous voltages I would suggest that you get a TV repair technician to give you an estimate on the cost of repair.

Judging by what you described it sounds like the trippler may have a problem. Have the technician check that first, or if you have a high voltage probe here is the procedure:

1) Remove the rear of the Tv set

2) clip the ground lead of the HV probe to ground.

3) using the tip of the probe touch the input of the trippler block you should have a voltage of 20Kv - 30Kv

4) touch the individual outputs of the trippler block they should each read 20Kv to 30Kv.

If the input is not present the IHVT or the trippler is bad, however if the 20Kv to 30Kv is present on the input but not the output the trippler itself is the problem.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

First start off by replacing the convergence IC. They are soldered into place, so if you dont know how to unsolder and solder on printed circuit boards, you should ahve a pro assist you. They start with STK and they stand up on a metal heat sink. Also you may need to check around in the sweep supply for leaky capacitors. This set is common for them but not any in paticular

resolder the vertical output IC

I had the same issue. The screen would shrink and then expand over and over. After thrity minutes it would correct itself. 
After a few months of doing this it just broke - no sound and no videe but the power light was still on. 

I searched these forums but did not find clear instructions or kits on how to fix it. I gave up and called in a repair tech. He fixed my TV in less than 30 minutes. 

To help others I documented the fix and created a repair kit and step by step quide on how to fix the problem. You can find it here. http://www.magnavoxhelp.com

IC Chip went out. Check www.magnavoxhelp.com for a repair kit

most likely the horz output is blown and voltage regulator is shorted. I f you have a muti meter you could check if they are shorted that will tell me if the power supply is ok.

I beleve at this time you should be careful this is high voltage off of flyback is 30.000 volts

See if there is a local repair shop who charges cheap road calls. I think you are
looking around 295.00 to fix.


thanks DOCTOR VIDEO

If you have some traces of blue and green but they are very weak especially around the edges and usually blue being the the worst than you probably have contaminated cooling fluid in the Picture Tubes. Its a big job to do it right and a waste of money to do it wrong (I've seen places just drain and refill, this is not the right thing to do) the CRT's must be disassymbled drained and CLEANED before re-assymbling and re installing. It will be labor intensive but probably worth it if the TV was givin to you

Its a slight possibility that a 2.00 Part called a capacitor could be bad on the screen drive voltage source. But most likly it sounds like the Picture tubes are comming to the end of there life expectancy. If the crts are weak there is a crt rejuvinator that could possibly clean the grids off each color gun. But this is a crap shoot, as sometimes it destroys the tubes. These type of repairs are not for the handi-man or a consumer to do. There are no real user replaceable parts inside so unless your able to solder and know the HI Voltage saftey issues, you should call a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck

Try 606 or 616 one of those should work.

It could be because the TV's screen is starting to go bad and that your TV's screen and TV are starting to die on you.
