Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television

Convergence is off and can't get the red convergence cross hairs to move left or right.

    I don't know where the Philips Magnavox 51MP392H came from. My tv is a Philips 60PP9202/17F. The convergence is off and the picture is skewed. When I went into the convergence menu and tried to manually converge the red, I can get the cross hairs to move up and down but not right or left. The same with the multi-point convergence screen. I can't move any direction on those that are toward the edge of the screen and those in the middle I can move up and down but not left or right. I am assuming that I need to replace the convergence board. Is this correct? In any case, I need to get a part number so I can get it ordered, put it in, and get the picture looking good again.



    Thanks,



    John O'Daniel

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem. You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors
The two convergence IC's are generic part# STK392-120 (Philips original part# 932212344682) The two resistors are sitting side by side (6.8 ohm 2 watt)
check out the below link..... which explains very clearly with pictures as to how u need to replace these ICs for ur specific Philips 60PP9202 model......
http://techghetto.com/tv-repair/
also as an additional option........

Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick email and they will put one together for you. Their kits includes photo instruction guides, original philips STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

kindly rate my service......
good luck with ur fix.......... this model is known for its convergence issues... so whats happening to u is not uncommon.... after u follow the instructions in that link... ur tv wud be good as new...

How do you access the convergence calibration menu on a RCA P52926 Rear Projection TV


Hello
To access the convergence calibration:

Press the MENU button on the remote.

2. Press 3 to select the Screen option.

3. Press 4 to select the Adjust Projection TV option.

4. Press 4 to select the Advanced Convergence option (the
Advanced Convergence screen appears).

The green pattern is fixed. The red and blue patterns are adjusted to

the green pattern. The Red Convergence appears first by default.

5. Colored cross-hairs show the current adjustment position on the

grid. To move the cross-hairs to a different position, use the

CH+/- buttons on the remote to move the cross-hair highlight up

and down, and the VOL+/- buttons to move it right and left.

6. Use the arrow buttons to adjust the red pattern. Each press of

the arrow button makes a slight adjustment from the center of

the cross-hairs - you can press and hold the desired arrow

button to make a faster adjustment, and then make fine

adjustments with single presses of the arrow button.

7. Press the INFO button to switch to Blue convergence and follow

the steps above to adjust the blue pattern.

8. Press OK to exit. You will be asked if you want to save the
adjustments

Yes Saves adjustments.

No Returns to the Advanced Convergence screen allowing

further adjustments.
Clear Exits screen without making any changes

Note: Before you use the advanced convergence feature, you must
complete the previous steps to align the tubes

How do I adjust the convergence properties on an RCA rear projection tv?


Normally on the RCA rear projection TV's you would bring up your menu and choose the Setup menu, then press OK on the remote. That menu would then have Convergence as a choice. Once that was chosen the next menu would give you the choice of either letting the TV run it's own Autoconvergence program, or you would select either Red or Blue convergence.

Choosing Red Convergence would bring up a Yellow cross-hair in the middle of the screen. If the Convergence was not correct you would see separate Green and Red cross-hairs. Once they were perfectly aligned you would again see one Yellow cross-hair.

Choosing Blue Convergence would bring up a Blue cross-hair in the center of the screen. If the alignment was out you would see 2 Blue cross-hairs. Using the Up and Down and Left and Right cursor keys you would adjust the alignment until a single solid Blue cross-hair was in the center of the screen.

I just moved my 42in. Toshiba rear projectiom Tv from my basement to the upstairs and now my convergence is off. The red tube cross is low on the manual adjustment and will not go up to the other colors.IT...


It sounds like you jostled the red CRT gun when you moved the set. If the convergence adjustment still moves the red cross hair the the circuitry is okay. Your red gun needs to be realigned. This requires a service call unless you want to attempt it yourself. It is fairly involved and requires some specific tools as well as using the service mode on the remote to reset the convergence after the gun is repositioned.

Red/Orange horizontal lines


it could be that the tv convergence circuit is going bad. One shure way of finding out is to go to the tv feature menu(picture,audio etc.) and select the customer convergence setting, you should get a cross hair pattern(cross in middle of screen). that cross should be white and by aligning the red or blue colors they should move left, right, up or down

ok first lets determine if the fuse is the poblem. do you have convergence option in the setup in customer menu. if you do then it will not be the fuse. if you have that option go into blue and red convergence. when you arrow over left or right up and down do the cross hairs move if they dont then it will be the power board(convergence)

Auto convergence dosent work


if you can line up any then the fuse is not the problem
if you dont have the convergence option in the setup menu it is fuse. DO you have any convergence at all.... sound like it. then this may be a convergence amp board problem. does the cross hair move at all or only up and down or left to right.
