Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television
I tried to converge the colors using the remote for my tv. It appears that the red projector needs adjusting. Can I take it apart and adjust it myself?
If you try to adjust this you will make more work for yourself. The problem is convergence amps go bad and anything you adjust now has to be readjusted when problem is fixed. Also, convergence problems are a very common problem in all brands of projection televisions, not just magnavox, because the amps run pretty hot holding the colors in aligment. It's unfortunate you had bad luck with this set but we are also now seeing LCD, DLP and PLASMA sets that barely make it through the first year. More and more brands only carry a 90 day warranty now, so they know the life span is decreasing. To repair your set you will need soldering/desoldering equip. and test equip. or you could pay someone with experience 175.00-375.00 to solve your problem for you. That's why we're here. Lots of luck, Russmann.

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.
