Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Left top and right top of screen curled, bottom middle of screen has a hump to it

One day i turned my tv on and the colors were out of whack so i manually adjusted the convergence and the colors are fine however when watching a program like a baseball game the score that appears on the top of the screen is curled at each end and also any words that may be at the bottom middle of screen are raised up like a hump. Any ideas i mean tv is watchable however looks weird watching sometimes.

    Thanks Tim for the info. yes i can solder and use a meter how delicate is this procedure and how do i not shock myself in the process. I do have some bench assembly experience but has been awhile though.

Yes you need to repair the convergence circuit. If you know how to solder and use a meter this can be fixed easily by yourself. If you call a repairman to do it, it will run you $300-$500 depending on your area. Let me know if you can use a meter and solder and we can move forward with repairing you set.

    You dont have to worry to much about shocking yourself in this one as long as its unpluged and you stay away from the power supply. In order to fix this one you will need to replace both STK392-110's and any open resistors there by them. IF you have trouble finding the burnt resistors (if there are any) you can post a picture of the circuit boards and i will show you where they are.

    There are a few more things that can cause this problem. You need to check the resistors that are infront of the stk's If you are in the back of the set looking in, the resistors im talking about are to left and in front of the stk's kinda in the corner of the circuit board. If you post a picture of the board I will circle what i need you to check.

Mitsubishi LT46246 screen darkens from middle to left side and then ghosts on left side. If I whack the top of the TV it corrects to normal color. Can you tell me what might be causing this?

May be loose or damaged board connecting cables or connecting cables to the panel. Sometimes when these cables are not properly seated, over time they will deteriorate & need replaced or reseated.

I'm affraid to say that your screen has got a PDP/LCD fault. Just like a tube going on a TV. This is a fault which is beyond economical repair

Arc or hump on bottom left of tv and color is faded bad.

Your convergence Ic's have gone bad. Most likely a few small resistors with them. It's really not a job you should try and takle if you haven't done it before. Not a major deal for a svc co.
