The control panel is fairly straight forward to get at.

Reove the stand from the tv, and lay the tv, screen down, on a flat surface. You should lay a cloth of some kind to prevent scratching to the casing.
Remove all the screws from the central metal plate on the back. You will need a torx T10 driver for these screws.

Carefully remove the plate. Note any cables which may be attached.

Remove the screws from the outer back casing and remove the casing.

The control panel is held in by two screws. Remove the screws and re-position the control panel. If the control panel is damaged it can be replaced.

My Philips Plasma TV 50PF9631D/37 will not turn on. LED flashes 6 long, 3 short. Bad power board? How can I be sure it is not a bad 25 cent fuse on the power board?

Is there a code number that needs to be entered to bring the convergence pattern or menu on screen.

From a user standpoint you would follow these steps to bring up your Convergence menu:

1) Press your MENU button.

2) Press the Right Cursor Button to enter the Picture menu.

3) Press the Down Cursor Button until you highlight the MANUAL CONVERGENCE choice on the menu.

4) You will then see the following choices on the right hand side of the menu: Convergence Red, Convergence Blue, Multipoint Red, Multi Blue, Save Multipoint.

5) Once you choose either the Red or Blue choices you will get a crosshair in the middle of your screen. You will then use either your Up, Down, Left, or Right Cursor buttons to get the two images to line up correctly. If you still have multi images on your screen in either Red or Blue you would then have to adjust the Multipoint choice for that color.

Casing on off switch plastic mount on side of tv broken. on off switch dropped inside

Hello, you're supposed to put the TV on the screen carefully. Remove the screws of the lid back and assess the damage. Usually it is possible to catch the break, or improvise in any way, the switch back in place.
Let me know if it worked out, or if you need additional guidance
