Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television
Thanks for the help on the chips and resistors. I messed with the color
adjustment in the back(which I never should have). Now I can't seem to
get it back to normal. Is there come specific procedure, besides eyeballing it?
Hello, below in my post is a link to the Manual library. there are detailed instructions on how to adjust the color. it takes time and some steps are difficult but using two people you should have no problem just print them out and go step by step... also I suggest doing it at night with low lights or off, and let the TV warm up for 20 mins.
Good luck, below is my general post with lots of info
Actually I have this TV and you need 2 Convergence IC's STK392-120's (120's and 150's will work) of course order 2 of the same type I'm using replacement 150's they allow for a little higher heat and were cheaper ALSO you need to replace the 12 resistors with 6.8 ohm metal film resistors, make sure they are metal film! don’t skimp out here I did and then they blew and fried my IC's and I had to replace everything again!
Great reference link that I posted pictures on, check out page 3

Manual Library you should find all you need here:
What you need:
(2) STK392-120 OR STK392-150 IC chips
(12) 6.8 Ohm Metal Film resistors
set of star screw drivers
15 watt pencil solder pencil, DO NOT use a high watt iron you will fry the surface mounted item.
good leaded solder, and flux
BTW if you don’t plan on trying this and are going to throw out the TV, I still need a IC convergence board for a 51MP392H/17 TV I'm fixing, I'm willing to pay S/H and buy your IC board that’s not been tampered with. Edwinkraus@hotmail.com
