Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television
My tv has been showing shades of red in the picture for some time now but usually goes right back to the normal color but the other night it just would not go back to the right color.
Can some one please help me and tell me if this is something I can fix my self or do I need to take it somewhere?
Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.
Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
Here is a quick test....

If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.
Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy
Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos arophillip magnavox 52 rear projection - 578ba6c.jpg
