Question about Philips 60PP9352 60" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Convergence Problem? I have a Philips 43" rear projection HDTV that is giving me problems. Splotches of yellow, blue ghost outlines, etc... starting showing up when I turned my TV on 3 days ago. If I turn the TV on and off several times in a row it will usually go away. Repair centers are saying its a convergence problem. They don't do house calls and are going to charge $400+. What can I do to fix this tv that is only 3 years old? What do you think about gearslip's converger tool?

As many projection sets I have worked on and set up i didnt know they had deguassing circuits??? Ummm Hold on a second. Nope just looked in a manual they do not . I dont mean to shoot down sillygirl really I dont. Ok to the problem at hand. Yes your problem could be a convergence problem and 400 is about average for this repair if its done correctly. And that would be replaceing all the convergence ic's at once and resoldering all the regulators and larger resistors on the pc board . But the problem you speak of sounds like the liquid coolent between the tube and the lens could have things floating in it or maybe around the inside of the set around the mirrors. Im not sure if this is a model where the coolent went bad as it would get tiny peices floating in and around and they would grow in time so you had to pull each tube and drin the coolent take apart the tube and clean the tube and the lens . Then put everything back together with new coolent and realighn everything. Now older sets dont have the coolent so they have a space between the lens and the tube or a solid sheet of silicon that gets dried out sometimes as well. Anywho a picture of what it looks like would help if possible. Remember theres alot of voltage inside these sets so its not something a general handyman should be messing with as ive seen these sets make a grown man cry!!(including myself!)Good Luck

It's hard to tell for certain, but from what you're describing this sounds like the degaussing mechanism of the TV is either malfunctioning, or that there's some electromagnetic field around that keeps screwing with your TV. This could be caused by speakers, lamps, or any other electrical device. In any case don't hurry to spend 400$ on repair, it's been only three days, and there's a nice chance its not the convergence, or that you'll be able to find someone in your area that won't overcharge you. If there was any device added to the mix around the TV lately, remove it, and try plugging out your TV over night. If turning it off and on a few times won't solve it in the long run(that's the way you make the degauss mechanism work), you should look again into repair options in your area. Good luck

The blue outline is a convergence problem. Depending on the brand of tv you have there are adjustments to fix that. If the adjustments wont work then the convergence circuit will have to be repaired.
