Never spray directly on a screen. If the solution seeps into the underside (back etched side of the glass) it could damage the surface. You may have to get to the inside from the rear projection area or lift of the front glass screen and remove it completely. Usually the Rear surface of the screen is etched and can be wiped clean. Go to Bed Bath and get a good streak less windows cleaner. Spray it on a soft cloth and wipe the front and/or back glass. Wipe dry with a CLOTH, not a paper towel, and when dry use a flash light to see any streaks or blemishes left behind. Clean again is necessary. Do not apply pressure, gently clean and try not to cause scratches as they show up when the projection device flashes the image on the glass portion. Put it all back they way it was and enjoy.

You can change the size through either the menu or a button on the remote usually referred to as "aspect". It should give you 2 or 3 choices for the size. Some cable or DTV boxes also have this feature and may be in conflict so try setting from both until you find the right size. Good luck.

You will need to replace the two STK392-110 Convergence ICs and also a couple of the 6.8 ohm 1watt resistors. You can get replacement ICs and resistors for your set at the following link and they provide free instructions with pictures.

Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

If you have any of the following problems you may want to check the site www.tvrepairkits.com for a repair kit. Most of the issue below are fairly common with the older Magnavox projection sets. 

Symptom: Screen shrinks and expands - may or may not correct itself after the TV warms up. After a few days, weeks, or months of having the shrinking/expanding problem you may loose all audio/video but the power light will remain lit!

(Note: The below symptoms typicaly occurs after having the expanding/shrinking screen problem above)

Symptom: No Audio or Video but power light is on
Symptom: Audio works but no Video. Power light still work
Symptom:  No Video. Audio is intermittent. Power light still works

Philips 9P6040C... | Answered on Oct 12, 2008


Screen shrinks and expands and wams up after 10-20 minutes and then went out completely? Power light still comes on and remote still works? This is a common problem for this model and is most likely related to a bad chip. A tech will charge you over $300.00 to fix it but you can buy the repair kit including the chip, step by step instructions and repair manuals for under $40.00 if you are willing to do a little soldering. Go to http://www.magnavoxhelp.com/ and enter your model or chasis number and order the kit. This will not fix color problems!
