Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

52mp392 h/17 Sound but no picture

Ok guys, im new here!

I apoligize if I am too specific here, but I like to make sure everyone has all the information needed to diagnose my problem.

Ok, boys- first things first - I am perfectly comfortable soldering (I have assembled circuit boards for the last 10 years) , and I know some basics of testing with a multimeter, basics of TV's, and have played with them in the past - even repaired a few simple ones in the past! Not bad for a girl, huh?

I have a Magnavox 51MP392H/17. It worked fine until one night where the picture just shut off! The sound kept going fine, just no picture! I downloaded the service manual and started on this adventure:

I pulled the back of the set to have a look at it. I have looked at all of the capacitors, none seem swollen, There are no visibly burned components or circuit traces, and I made sure to check all of the fuses on the boards - even the weird little black round ones... all tested good.

I removed all the convergence resistors and checked them with my meter- they all ohm out fine! Just on a gamble, I ordered some Sanyo brand STK392-120's and installed them....still no change!

When I turn the set ON i hear the power relay click, then the high pitched sound (blip) of the flyback transformer - then I get audio from the signal but no picture. I have also noticed that the base of all 3 CRT's glows red when on. Does this mean the FBT is good?

Sometimes when I try to turn it on, it will click on, you will hear the FBT, then the whole set will turn off for one second, and then back on, and you will hear the FBT again, but no picture still.
I have felt the heatsink on the Horizontal Output Transistor and it is warm, as is the heatsink for the convergence I.C's - I am guessing the FBT or HOT is bad, but I dont know how to test either one of them.

Any advice for an amature do-it-yourselfer ? I miss my tv, and I still think it looks better than an LCD! I know not alot of women do this sort of thing, but I like to think I am a bit different, hehe. Dont be afraid to talk techie with me.. I know a little, but I am also sure you all could probably confuse me if you wanted to, so keep that in mind!

Thanks guys!!

Battery will not connect

You should buy a new one that you are sure will fit. As there is no way that you can force on to fit if it just doesn't. I apoligize if i misunderstood your question but I hope this helps in some way!

Xbox 360 Tips

Ok guys we all know that the 360 was rushed and it has many glitch's on games, So im going make a 5 golden rule for the xbox 360 cause im sick of the same questions over and over...
1. If one game dosnt work try another game and see if it has the same problem.
2. Make sure that all cables are plugged in correctly.
3. If a game crashs and continue's too. Then replace it and see if you get the same problem.
4. Let you xbox have breaks for example.. Dont over use it cause it will burn out in the end.. So dont leave it on for 4 hours doing nothing cause ur wasting its life..
5. Ok guys this is the most importent one of all!!!. You your head.. If somthing goes wrong think why has it done that and try to solve it for yourself!! It feels good trust me... Or if you cant be bothered... then send me a messege. lol..
Well thank you for looking at this guys.. Im allways here to get you back on that train.

phillips has the same problem but if your tv actually turns on it could be a short or just a fuse sonys a better tv than phillips should be an easy fix call a repir guy going price for that problem is 75.00 dont pay any more than that. the economy is bad everyone needs the work be smart. make sure if you say yes to the work that the repair guy will waive the consultaion cost of usually 35 to 75 dollars, if you chose to have the work done.

There is no audio on my tv. Picture is fine just

The only quick fix that comes to mind is to go to the "audio settings" in the menu and verify it is set for "internal" and if it is not retrun it to internal. Often this gets switched accidentally to external and there will be no sound without an external amp/speaker system. If you have already checked this, I apoligize for stating the obvious.

I need help resetting my audiobahn cd player

Hi, the only information that I could find on that specific model, was to disconnect your battery for a few minutes and the memory from the headunit will automatically be erased. Sorry you didn't get the proper response you requested.
