I have to suggest a solution for this problem. I sell tv's for a living. Never buy a philips projection TV. Fortunately you can't anymore, but don't ever think about buying one again.

Your symptom sounds like at least one damaged convergence IC.
If you have a good low wattage soldering iron ~ 45W (available at radio shack) you can perform the repair yourself, and this will most likely take care of the entire issue.
I like to remove the board that the IC’s are on so that I can unsolder the connections and clean then up using solder wick (this is also available from radio shack). Removing the board is not a real issue as the connectors are all labeled with an alpha number, so that you can connect them back real easy. There are three in the middle towards the front that I like to mark with a sharpie as they are the red green and blue convergence coil connections (they are all the same size in a row). Just mark them with slashes, like I, II, III, or something like that. If you mix them up it is not a big issue, you can test swapping them around until the picture lines up.
Please be sure to remove the entire white heat sink compound on the heat sink and apply an even coating over the back of the new IC’s. You should also bolt them down before you solder them in so that you have them at the correct height.
There are two very large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink.
The IC’s are large and black, you cannot miss them. They will usually have an STKXXX-XXX number on them.
This repair from a good technician will normally run from $250.00 - $300.00, and sometimes more depending on your area.
There are several schools of thought on the replacement of parts and I firmly believe that you get what you pay for, so don’t buy the cheapest IC’s that you can find. One company I worked for tried this and it only caused more work for the technicians, as we had to replace them with the more expensive ones in the end. I would think that you should be able to find these for around $60.00 each. If you can find the exact Hitachi part, or Sanyo, even though the numbers on the front are the same, and they look exactly like the $10.00 ones, they are better and more reliable.
I usually order my parts from Andrews Electronics in California, they will have the OEM components that you will need.
Their site is http://www.andrewselectronics.com/welcome.aspx
And their phone number is a 24-Hour Order Desk: (800) 274-4666
I recommend the phone order so you can talk to the person about the different types of IC’s that are available.
You can also try http://www.tvrepairkits.com/ , I have not tried them yet, but they do carry OEM or better parts.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Yea its a convergance issue. I'm more familiar with the sony bigscreens. The convergance amplifier number for that one is STK392-120. The schematics show that your tv has two of them.
Go here for a service manual: http://www.eserviceinfo.com/downloadsm/31487/Philips_DPTV305.html
You will see a window that says file information, at the bottom you will see something that says multipart 0 1 2 3 4. You need to download all of those files. you will also need WinRAR to unzip them. You can download a free trial of winRAR.
Once you have WinRAR and the files open part1.rar and it will unzip everything into a 1800 page pdf that is the service manual.
If you have a work copier use that to print the manual or use the pdf search function to locate the STK392-120, or 7044 and 7055. The latter two numbers are the numbers philips uses to identify the chips in their schematics.
I know its a lot of info, but I hope it can help.
