Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded over.

Picture looks dark


I have same model. First set went out of convergence, and I was able to adjust it. A few days later I had same problem and fixed it again. Then I was no longer able to adjust it. I watched TV the way it was. The picture got darker.Then I was watching TV, and there was a flash from the middle of the picture, and TV powered itself off. I unplugged TV and plugged it in 30 seconds later. I powered TV on, and red LED on front panel blinked a few times, and stopped. TV powered itself off.

From what I learned, the LAMP has to be replaced, and so do the convergence chips and convergence resistors. The TV shop charges around $300 and up just for the convergence chips. The TV is selling on craigs list for $150 to $200 in good working condition.

You have to decide if the repairs are worth your while. Probably not in mmost cases.

You need 2 STK392-110 Convergence ICs and possibly 6 2.2 ohm 2watt resistors. You can get the convergence repair kit for your model from www.tvrepairworld.com the kit contains the ICs, resistors and the CD with instructions. The PT47WX42 convergence kit is the correct one for your model.

power supply's are hardly ever replaced, they are repaired. your picture tube in most cases usually fail slowly progressively over time, there are many protection circuits involved in a TV`s circuit, they protect your unit from faults like power supply faults, picture convergence, vertical amplifiers, x ray, ext depending on your model, i suggest you search out a second opinion form another organization before spending 600 plus dollars for a new tube, i suspect your tech may be a little less than honorable...

Screen is all shrunken and in one corner...Convergence Problem... i think


I had the same issue. The screen would shrink and then expand over and over. After thrity minutes it would correct itself. 
After a few months of doing this it just broke - no sound and no videe but the power light was still on. 

I searched these forums but did not find clear instructions or kits on how to fix it. I gave up and called in a repair tech. He fixed my TV in less than 30 minutes. 

To help others I documented the fix and created a repair kit and step by step quide on how to fix the problem. You can find it here. http://www.magnavoxhelp.com
