Phillips 55pp9401 red and green not converging even after using itellesense

I have the 55pp9401 and the red and blue are not converging over the entire screen even after I use intellisense.  I really would like to repair this tv myself.   I do have some skills in electrical work and have a lot of common sense.  Could you advise me of what to do or is it way to complicated.
thank you
David

We no longer have the remote for model 55pp9401 and we have a convergence problem what can we do


Here's the Philips support URL for your TV:
www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=55PP9401&slg=en&scy=US

PDF download of your Owners' manual:

Here's what Philips FAQ says about your convergence procedure:
Question How do I adjust convergence (align colors)? Answer Note: For best results, the Projection TV needs to be turned on for 15 minutes or longer before adjusting the picture tubes (convergence).

Press the INTELLISENSE button on the remote (under the flap). During the convergence process DO NOT press the INTELLISENSE button again and DO NOT move the Projection TV.

So, I think you're going to need to order a replacement remote.
search "replacement remote" at http://www.philips.com

My picture seems to be okay, but I am getting double vision. a blue line on top of a yellow line. I don't have the original remote and cannot get it to use the intellisense feature. Can this be corrected?


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


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,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

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

*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

Intellisense button


If the model number on the set is 55PP9401/55 you have an interesting set----this model says Philips but was made by Hitachi---they made them for Philips for one year while Philips was gearing up to produce their own sets---very good set and is better than the Philips sets that came after it.
It uses (if it is this model) two STK-392-110 CONVERGENCE IC's----both need to be replaced and the set adjusted---no need for an original remote---with the set engaged in the convergence adjustment mode( there is a micro switch on the front of the main circuit board) A HITACHI REMOTE CAN THEN BE USED TO ADJUST THE CONVERGENCE. Hope this was helpful.

Orange faces and lost of red on screen


You got a convergence board problem that would need to be repaired around $150 bucks.. This would need to be done by a repair technition as there are things that need to be reset inside once the new part is in place.
