The green dot in the center sounds like a burn mark on one or more of the picture tubes inside the set, and the curved lines are telling me that you have a problem in the convergence circuits. The blue haze around everything white tells me you either have a lot of dust build up on the lens over the CRTs, or your picture tube(s) are very weak. If this set is over about 12 years old, I would replace it. I doubt if you will be able to get the green dot out of the picture without changing the tubes which would be VERY expensive.

Convergence point problem on a Philips TV


The 55pp9352 model number uses 2 of the STK-392-120 convergence chips--if it will not adjust in some direction--both chips and any of the 6.8 ohm resistors around them that are bad need to be replaced.

The reason this happens is the chips are about 2 1/2 inches wide X 1 1/2 inches tall with a metal back--they are attached to separate metal heat sinks and a white grease is applied to each to transfer heat quickly---after several years the heat sink grease dries out and one of the chips cannot stay cool enough and fails.

Pretty common problem in ALL rear projection sets--if model is 55pp, it is 55 inch set.

You can buy the chips on Ebay for less than 12 dollars---the resistors if needed are cheap parts.

It depends if you are able to do the repair yourself or need to have someone do it for you--most shops get at least 300 for this kind of repair--considering the parts cost less than 20 dollars if you can do it yourself you can save a lot of money.

Any good tech can do this repair in your home in about 1 hour--I know as I have done hundreds of them.

If you need help or advice let me know--I am here to help people.

Philips Projection TV the colors are separated- not converging


This was hapening to me too. To fix I just punched the tv. If this works then some wires were disconnected. Punch the right and left side not the screen or the back it will damage!

Magnavox DV220MW won't record.


You need to plug a red, white, and yellow cord from the red, white, and yellow OUT of your cable or satellite box into the red, white, and yellow labelled VCR IN/LINE 1 on the Philips. To view what you are trying to record, make sure there is another red, white, and yellow cable plugged from the DVD/VCR OUT of the Philips to your television. Make sure the television is on the appropriate source channel (AUX 1, AUX 2, VIDEO 1, VIDEO 2, etc). Then press the VCR button on the Philips. You should now see your cable or sat channel (as long as it's not an HD Satellite box) on the television screen. Press record, and you are on your way. Good luck!
