Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television
TV is in high voltage shutdown protection mode. Check to see if Horizontal output transistor is shorted or open. If not then resolder all solder joints on HV transformer. If this does not fix it then you will need to do voltage checks off of H.O.T. and then possibly a bad HV transformer.

The popping sound may have been a capacitor. The chance are the capacitor is in the HV section of the TV set and is part of the supply to the Horizontal section of the TV. First if you do not have electronics experience I would suggest you take the TV to a qualified TV repair shop. OK now if you have electronics experience I would say to unplug the TV, open the set up and do a physical inspection of the TV you will be looking for a capacitor that has exploded; if you find one look at the schematic for the TV and find its value. Then do so checks to find out why did the capacitor explode. Most likely the capacitor exploded because of wear and tear, but it always pays to check. Replace the capacitor with one of the same value and then turn the TV on, use your voltmeter to measure the voltage across the capacitor to make sure its the same or close to the value on the schematic.
These are the basics of what to do
I hope this helps

If this happened suddenly and the red and green images are bowed in at the center of the top, bottom and both sides, one of the convergence amplifier IC's has failed. The part number is STK392-120. Make sure it is a genuine Sanyo brand replacement; there are a number of cheap imitations out there that do not last. Generally they cost less than $30 each.
Note: there are two of these in each TV. They are notorious for having a high failure rate, so I usually replace both. (FYI: each chip has three amplifiers. Each color gets two amplifiers, so one color uses an amplifier on each chip. That's why we usually see at least two colors go out of whack when this problem happens.)
I assume you have already tried a different video source (DVD, VCR, etc.) to rule out input signal defects. If the problem arose right after the set was moved, either the optical alignment was disturbed or (less likely) there is a stray magnetic field near the set that is causing problems (magnetron from a microwave oven?). There is a procedure (sometimes provided in the owner's manual) for adjusting convergence using the remote control that can fix minor alignment problems. If you want to gamble it is not a hardware failure, try it first along one edge of the picture.
If you cannot shift the red or green dots in the convergence pattern, stop immediately, and make a note of where and in what direction you tried to move the dots. Inability to converge the dots is a strong indication the convergence amplifiers are bad (that is their job - to keep the colors lined up with each other). You will need to undo any adjustment attempts after you replace the convergence chips and any fuses or resistors that got burned when they went out, so don't make too much extra work for yourself or your service tech.
