Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

Magnavox 51MP392H Top and bottom of screen is wavy!!!!

This is a pal Jessica's TV and I was looking into the issue for her. Not sure what happened to it but I think a one of Jessica's friends kids may have ran into the TV, but as kids that do something wrong are known to do the child denys everything and anything. So here is the situation. The top and bottom of the screen is wavy "like an arch" but less defind. Her hubby said that he had to do the convergency thing because it was like a 3D screen after the incedent occured. I spent hours playing with no help. The colour focus is fine except at the top and bottom. The convergent menus are of no help now. As anyone that has tryed would understand what I mean by "All I endup doing was going cross eyed. LOL. Anyways I am a tech savy person and good with working on things. I just need help to know what to look at and do/try to fix this, before I attempt to open the back of the TV. Any help will be greatly aprecated, And thank you. Jason

Guys i just had the repair man out $400 he gave me the bad chips that are causing the problem and i looked up the part its only 7.99 it took him 1hr to do he also replaced some resistors but after googling the part number found some people giving out the resistors that need to be replaced. now i didnt see him replace so i dont know how hard it is to replace on your own but could be worth a shot had i known about the parts i needed i would have done it myself. Part No. STK392-150 He said STK392-180 would work too.

That is funny.. Mine just did the same thing about 2 days ago! I guess we need to pull together and get circuit boards at a bulk rate!

I have the exact same issue. Chances are good the convergence circuit needs to be replaced. I wonder why they just suddenly go bad.

I have a 52 inch magnavox with rainbow colored distortion on the screen


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded over.

Just recently the image became distorted at the top and bottom of the screen, like an arch going up from the bottom and down from the top?


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Wavy lines


I have the same problem with this tv. i took it to a tv repairman, and he told me my convergence circuit board was the problem. the circuit board itself is about $300 and the labor to fix it is another $150. So i never got it fixed, cause it's just too expensive.
