Question about Philips 43PP9202 43" Rear Projection Television
I have had my 43PP9202 for 3 years now and back in October 2006 I started experiencing these strange green and red hour glass figures on the screen after the set had been turned on for a minute. You could turn the set off for a second and turn it back on and the colored swirls in the picture would dissappear. That is until you turned the set on again the next day and it would start all over. I finally called a local repairman and had him come to my house and replace 2 convergence ICs (STK392-110). I have had no problems since this until just the other morning, the picture began to show the same green and red hour glass across the screen. Since I had dealt with this issue before, I turned the set off and turned it back on. I tried this several times and each time the set came back on with the same exact distortion on the screen. Frustrated, I left the room, determined to listen to the show that was on even without the clear picture. When I came back into the room, the screen was blank but the sound was still coming strong from my surround sound receiver. I did not think to see if the sound was coming out of the actual television speaker. I have since plugged the set back in to see what it would do and I get no picture, no sound, and a slight ticking noise from the back. Any direction you can give me that does not include taking a loan out to get a repair man back out here would be mostly appreciated (especially by my eyes, it's hard to read my guide channel on a 19 inch set).
Call the shop and see what the warranty repair on the last repair is,the convergence ic must have shorted again and now the set went into shut down to protect itself.
