Question about Philips 60PP9202 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

ICs, convergence board, warped screen

The color was warped 4 months ago, Sartor TV (Plano, TX) replaced the ICs. 3 months later, the same problem. Called Sartor, they came out and checked it out, ordered power supply board? They replaced that, but still did not work. Ordered convergence board. Picked up TV to work on in shop. Brought it back in a pickup (FACE UP). The cardboard that they covered it with "blew" off, which exposed tv to direct sunlight (100 degree heat) for about an hour. We noticed screen appeared wavy and warped. Sartor accepts no responsibilty. They have no sense of customer service. We have been dealing with them for over a month (this time). Steve Sartor (owner) and his son, Jeff do not know how to run a business and need to put them out of their customer's misery. They hire kids (teenagers) as managers and techs (who are basically [email protected]$$*$!). We got a lot of "duh, I don't know"s from them.

    The shop picked it up in a van (standing up) and delivered it in a pickup truck (lying down on it's back). They are responible for melting the screen. It looks warped from any angle (esp. around the edges), even when the TV is off, looks like a cloth behind it.

    Sartor finally accepted responsibilty and has ordered the screen over a week ago...still waiting for it to come in.

Did they put the cardboard there? anyways it is not their responsible if you dropped off and picked up..home service is about the same price because crooks dont care how it gets to them. is the screen, when set off, looks warped or melted? look at it from diffent angles. if looks ok your back to the converence problem. good luck

    ya they messed up your screen , I have layed big screens down on face or screen side with no problems but prefer upright so as to insure cooling fluid does not escape from CRTS...causing catastropic failures.

I have an Akia TV DTV1080i and can't solve the color convergence as can't get the red and blue + to come together what should I try

This is a very common failure on Projection sets. Its called a convergence problem.

You may have one or more of the following symptoms.
  • 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.
  • No Audio / No Video - Makes Chirping Sounds

Rca r52wh74 - no auto convergance

The convergence circuit is the problem. If you can solder and are comfortable working inside the set where there are potentially dangerous high voltages even when unplugged, you can fix this yourself. First locate the convergence ICs which are large black ICs attached to a heatsink that will be marked STKxxx. Try resoldering the pins on these ICs first. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. Please note that there could be additional small parts that require replacement as well. Start with the ICs and let me know the results.

Problem with Colors Seperating

can the remote move the clors in all 4 directions? If not the convergence ICs need to be replaced. Also check the resistors that power the ICs they are located right next to the ICs

Are the colors out of alignment and unable to converge back? If so its the convergence ICs need replacing. If the convergence isnt out of alignment you have whats called a pincushion problem. If you would like a link to where you can obtain the service manual for this model let me know.
