The screen is starting to have red and green blurring
My magnavox 51mp392h/17 is starting to have red/green blurring around the edges of the picture ( a few inches). I have tried to play with whatever controls I can figure out, but do not seem to be able to change anything. Is this a problem that can be repaired or is my tv on the way out an dshould I plan to replace it?

Thats caused by failed convergence ICs and the 6.8 ohm resistors. You can get the repair kit called the DPTV305 -DPTV345 & MAG01 chassis convergence repair kit which fits your model. The kit has the components and the CD with repair instructions and its available at the following link top of the page. http://tvrepairworld.com/phillips__magnavox_repair_kits
You have a red drive problem or possibly a bad red tube. There are a lot of parts between the signal processor and the red tube so it is hard to say what exactly is the problem. Have a shop check it out for you. Thanks for using fixya.
are you getting sound, was it moved laterly, did you just get it from somone, did it get wet, does it make clicking noises, was the picture color/ convergence blurring before this, were the colors slowly seperating such as red/blue/green?, did the picture bow on top and bottom or sides prior to tihs, was there anything note worthy prior to the blank screen.
generally its IC convergence problem with the larger philips projection TV's however I need more info on your TV, also size make model # anything you can provide gets us a more narrowed solution.
There is a mode these set run in that stretches the side so the screen is completely filled, this is so the people do not seem all fat and short, this mode is known as Panoramic, this is one of the screen settings you can choose, I believe your set has a 4X5 or normal mode, 16X9 and maby a 16X9 zoom, the panoramic and maybe one more, find the format button on the remote and cycle through them
