Philips Magnavox Rear Projection 51mp392h color adjustment

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

51MP392H/17

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

The two resistor 8ohm 2w has blow for the green convergence adjustement


if its a philips or magnavox the protection resistors should be 1.8 ohm and 1/2 watt. They are in pairs and if white in the middle and open it means both convergence chips also need to be replaced.

Let me know if you need help or advice.

Manually adjust color guns (no remote)


I would get universal remote and start there first. Since adjusting the screens or guns is usually not required or helpful for basic color adjustments.

Convergence point problem on a Philips TV


The 55pp9352 model number uses 2 of the STK-392-120 convergence chips--if it will not adjust in some direction--both chips and any of the 6.8 ohm resistors around them that are bad need to be replaced.

The reason this happens is the chips are about 2 1/2 inches wide X 1 1/2 inches tall with a metal back--they are attached to separate metal heat sinks and a white grease is applied to each to transfer heat quickly---after several years the heat sink grease dries out and one of the chips cannot stay cool enough and fails.

Pretty common problem in ALL rear projection sets--if model is 55pp, it is 55 inch set.

You can buy the chips on Ebay for less than 12 dollars---the resistors if needed are cheap parts.

It depends if you are able to do the repair yourself or need to have someone do it for you--most shops get at least 300 for this kind of repair--considering the parts cost less than 20 dollars if you can do it yourself you can save a lot of money.

Any good tech can do this repair in your home in about 1 hour--I know as I have done hundreds of them.

If you need help or advice let me know--I am here to help people.

This means you do have some bad resistors low ohms 2.7 most of the time its only 2 of them depends on how long you played set before replacing STKs .

you will need to replace both STK392-120 Convergence ICs and you will also need four 6.8 ohm 1 watt resistors. You can get the replacement ICs and resistors at the following link with free instructions with pictures,

Manual convergence -service mode


you have some resistors that are still open . If the ICs go a resistor or two usually go open and you cant always tell unless you remove 1 leg out of circuit and check that the resistance is within 5% of the rated resistance. Trying to adjust it by the service menu will only place extra strain on the new ICs and they will blow on you. The resistors are located right next to the ICs there are about 8 of them all I dentical. Very easy to spot.

A sign that amps are going bad, right now you can check resistors in convergence board alongside the amps, check resistance to see if right.

You will most likely need to have the convergence circuit repaired. Not an uncommon failure with CRT projection televisions. Go into your menus first and check the convergence settings and see what happens.
