I am going to post some photos here for you. If you went into the customer menu and tried to adjust convergence and red and blue would move but green is skewed--you have a convergence problem.

Look at the photos and tell me if any look ANYTHING like your trouble. If you have a convergence problem with this model I HAVE START TO FINISH, STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS I CAN GIVE YOU.

Picture suddenly appeared out of focus, with different colors not lined up as they should be. A horizontal line shows up as two parallel ones, one red and one blue. This all happened to the accompaniment...


This is a model first sold in 2000---if convergence is skewed and will not align in the customer menu:

It uses two of the STK-392-110 convergence chips--I suspect if you smelled something that when the chips went bad one or more of the protection resistors around them toasted--burned to protect the set from the short.


Both chips and any bad resistors need to be located and replaced--parts cost On Ebay would be less than 30 dollars--I can tell you the best seller there.

If you or someone you know can do the repair you can save the set and a lot of money--Most shops are going to charge at least 300 for this kind of repair.

It should be able to be fixed right in your home--I know as I have repaired hundreds of sets with this problem.

If you need help or advice--let me know--I am here to help.

MAGNAVOX TV BURNING SMELL TV WENT POP AND WENT OFF


Well that pop had something to do with the power components inside the TV frying. I would have to say there is nothing you can do to repair it as its dangerous to work on such things.
I wouln't waste my time bringing it to a repair shop they will probably tell you to just buy a new one.

KP-53S65 Blue Ghosting


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.png http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull
