Question about Philips 51PW9303 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Open Question

Multipoint converge with no remote

I do not have the original remote to the Philips 51PW9303/17F. I have replaced the coolant in the green and blue and need to do a multi-point converge. How can I do that with the buttons on the front of the tv? Also how can I make sure I put the blue & green CRT board wires in the right position? I put them basically back in order the red up front by itself then the green in the upper left and the blue in the upper right slots. All CRT board wires clicked into place. Also we cannot get a picture on screen, it is just a black screen. Thank you.

SOURCE: Screen hazzy and issue with blue convergence

bad convergence would cause show to look as if it was supposed to be a 3-d movie, if a bulb was going out then people would look purple blue -green,or some other off color, so likely the green bulb is going out from the color of the people you described.

SOURCE: Blue Multipoint converge failure Philips 55PP9753

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Philips 55P8288A tv has a dull color and a red hue.


This sounds Like the the coolant for your piture tube has become cloudy and needs replacement (usually blue or green tube - thats why the image seems ovrely red).It's a big job (labour wise) since completee dissassembly is required ($200-300). It can be done youreself - check out TVrepairkits.com to get the coolant and instructions.
You can confirm that this is the problem by dissassembling the unit to the point where you can view the face of the CRT's (red green and blue) directly.

You need to try to adjust it with the original remote in the TECH mode---you can save the adjustments there--

With the set on a video input with nothing connected:
hit the following buttons: 0 6 2 5 9 7 STATUS

The menu should appear with choices---green(do not adjust green) red to green, blue to green etc.

On that initial menu will be a item that says store or save. Depending on the remote you have once you select red to green (cursor on remote) a grid of lines should come up---on screen will be instruction--menu to adjust and or status to navigate.

When you have the red--to green adjusted hit the status button until it takes you back to the menu where Store or save is listed and right cursor on it.
This will store the adjustments.

Go back by selecting blue to green and adjust that also and when done go back and save it.

Turn the set off to exit the service mode and see what you have---IF THE SET DOES NOT RETAIN these adjustments made in the Tech menu something is wrong with its DCU--digital convergence unit---that stores the adjustments.

Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • 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.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

2c07611.pngSolution #1

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


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.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

I have green outlines in the pictures


go into your menu there should be something called convergence in the menu a red and a blue convergence. when you select one you will get a cross in the center of your screen use the selection keys to move this so the two crosses are on top of each other. once you align both the red and blue ( the green is the base) then go to the multi point convergence if all crosses are lined up you are good if not then you will need to replace the convergence I.C. for that color or both. let me know how this turns out.

no the coolant needs to filled all the way, you did right. try focusing the blue tube with the blue focus control, and you may have to run a multi point convergence adjustment through the picture settings menu.
