Question about Philips 55PP9401 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

DOWN HILL??? There is a problem with the picture running down hill (as I call it) If I watch a movie that is widescreen the space below the movie is much smaller on the right than it is on the left. I was told that the yolks need to be turned. Is that true? and if so how hard is that to do?

It only true is its like one color that is twisted. Remember there is 3 tubes in a projo. Red, Blue, Green. So if a yolk needs turning and the color is not badly out of wack then that makes it that all colors are out and it is hardly likely that all three are turned the very same way(misconscrewed) So this maybe an internal matter. In service menu there maybe a way to align the convergence or crosshatch of all three colors or maybe a resistor that has changed in value. Either way you need someone familiar with the set to work on it.

I have a 2014 CTS. When traveling downhill with cruise control engaged, the car will downshift 2 or 3 gears causing the rpm to run up over 4000. Is this normal operation for these cars?

This is normal if you are going up hill but if you go down hill there should be very little work for the engine and transmission to do.
Going up hill as the engine starts to pull it is normal to kick into a lower gear to give the car more pulling power. If it does it in the down hill mode you should get it checked like low fluid or something.

Engine stalls at 50mph or when low on fuel

when low on fuel and the you drive and you turn car , side gravity forces force the fuel from the pump sock pickup sock and the fuel pump stalls, read the op. guide it tells you not do that.
the pump is fuel cooled, an fuel lubricated and starving it is a bad ACT.
so say what is going on at 50mph, going up or down a hill with 1/8th tank of fuel?

my jeep stalls in fast turns at 1/4 full (1991) slosh effect.
i slow down and bingo, it runs. did so new, and so did others..

gravity (and inertia) are our friends, but not always.
see space movie called Gravity. friend and foe.

Try some adjustments. Brite changes the level of bright and Picture changes contrast. Less contrast and less brightness to even things out may help, and you won't be driving the panel so hard, so It's life will be longer too.

Picture is only in middle of screen, top and bottom of screen is blacked out

If you are watching widescreen format movie or tv programming on a non-widescreen tv, that is how it will appear. The widescreen is a wider picture so to show it on a less wide screen, it has to shrink down to fit. and leave blank space top and botton.

If not, sorry.

Easy question!

When your camera is in picture mode, press func. set, then go down to where you will see either the letter S that is in a little hill type icon, or a white hill icon, or a white staricase looking icon. 1 setting is super fine, the other is fine, and the other is normal. If you choose normal, it will give you more memory to store and your pictures won't be as good as if they were in superfine mode, which takes more space.
