Philips 50PP920217F remote/color

Ok, i just got this TV as a gift.... the colour is off on it and i saw something about colour convergance..... ya, so i tried hitting the menu button on the remote. it does not pull up anything.

i am wondering if there are any shortcut keys or buttons? any other way to make the tv work short of spending a bundle on it?

any tips?

BTW, the picture kinda looks 3D. red in one place, blue just below that, ect....

Thanks for the help

    Our color is off also....there seems to duplicate images due to red and green colors both showing slightly above or below each other. I also tried using the remote control to try and adjust but it doesn't do anything.

When I set the Directv receiver box to the 1080i resolution mode, the picture on the TV is ghost mode with red and blue outlines around each figures. please help. When I set the receiver to the 480i...

This may sound strange but I have seen something like this once before in this model----In the customer menu select Convergence---DO THIS WITH NOTHING CONNECTED TO THE SET FOR SIGNAL-- IF THE multipoint convergence looks ok---I saw one of these sets where the problem was the box that was giving the set signal---easy to find out if you have them swap that box out for another---The TV does not know(convergence wise) whether you are 480 or 1080---yes, sometimes the set needs to be adjusted in each of these modes for Convergence---the set I saw the convergence was ok in 480 but out the window in 1080----he had another box in another room and when we swapped it the problem was gone.

Let me know if this helps you---in the 480 you can confirm this by hooking a DVD etc and if that looks good---suspect the box.

If you have any questions let me know--I am here to help.

I need the convergence code or how to get into the menu to converge my rca p52939 colours are not aligned

Hello,On your remote click the menu button and then go to the screen adjustment section. Once there chose convergence, and use the simple cross pattern to try to adjust your settings. If this does not work then you may have a convergence amplifier problem. For that you will have to have the convergence ICs replaced. I would suggest that you get a qualified TV repair man to do this for a fee. There are many instructions on how to do this on-line.I hope this helps,Regards,Shuttle83

Sounds like convergence is off. Need new Convergence amps. Could cost a couple hundred. Check around. If it has an auto converge or manual converge try that first. Check menu

Yea I would say so.. simple coincidence.. Ok... Hmm maybe the set needs to be De-gaussed.. has anyone had any Magnets near it lately? If so get a De-gaussing wand and run it over the screen

But more likely it has a failed colour component somewhere probably inside the "Jungle Chip" as it's called..

Unless ya can troubleshoot thses things yaself I would recommend that ya find a reputable serviceman and obtain a :Quote" and proceede from there. GL

Samsung SP42W5HFX colour misalignment

Hi. Did the ngineer say that it was problem with convergence pcb ? To be honest the lil git hitting the screen is more likely to damage the screen than convergence. Try going in to the menu then convergence & adjust red & blue to try & get the crosses white with no coloured halo around. Post on here with results your model of tv is pretty straight forward I work for an indepedent tv repair shop the manuals are easy to get hold of thats if he even needs one. Chris..

Convergence Pattern

Hi, Your problem is in the convergance? Ever done the convergance on a proj tv? If you have, then you can find the convergance board behind the speakers as i recall IF YOU HAVEN'T DON'T START NOW. UNLESS,,, you have the service manual, or the knowledge to, and the test patterns neccassary, to do it. Each color has approx 10 adjustments for vertical deflection, and 10 for Horiz. IF YOU TRY IT and don't have any idea,, you WILL make it worse!!! It takes about 4 hrs to do it right for a qualified tech so ya better think of it as an all day affair! good luck
