Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

Magnavox 51MP392H Top and bottom of screen is wavy!!!!

This is a pal Jessica's TV and I was looking into the issue for her. Not sure what happened to it but I think a one of Jessica's friends kids may have ran into the TV, but as kids that do something wrong are known to do the child denys everything and anything. So here is the situation. The top and bottom of the screen is wavy "like an arch" but less defind. Her hubby said that he had to do the convergency thing because it was like a 3D screen after the incedent occured. I spent hours playing with no help. The colour focus is fine except at the top and bottom. The convergent menus are of no help now. As anyone that has tryed would understand what I mean by "All I endup doing was going cross eyed. LOL. Anyways I am a tech savy person and good with working on things. I just need help to know what to look at and do/try to fix this, before I attempt to open the back of the TV. Any help will be greatly aprecated, And thank you. Jason

Guys i just had the repair man out $400 he gave me the bad chips that are causing the problem and i looked up the part its only 7.99 it took him 1hr to do he also replaced some resistors but after googling the part number found some people giving out the resistors that need to be replaced. now i didnt see him replace so i dont know how hard it is to replace on your own but could be worth a shot had i known about the parts i needed i would have done it myself. Part No. STK392-150 He said STK392-180 would work too.

That is funny.. Mine just did the same thing about 2 days ago! I guess we need to pull together and get circuit boards at a bulk rate!

I have the exact same issue. Chances are good the convergence circuit needs to be replaced. I wonder why they just suddenly go bad.

Why do you think Cap left the Shield?

I don't think giving up such a valuable and unique weapon just to make such a gesture would be worth it. Civil War was the first movie where Cap does what's best for himself and what he wants to do (helping Bucky and proving he's innocent), and not what's best for other people. I think when Stark tossed the "my dad, who your best friend killed, made that shield, you don't deserve it" card at him, he realized that that's true, and that he isn't worthy of what the shield symbolizes anymore.

Is the TV PAL or NTSC? The symptom you are experiencing is what would happen if you are trying to play back a NTSC signal on a PAL TV or vica versa. If you have a scart connection on theTV then use a scart lead to connect from the DVD player to the TV. Set the DVD player for RGB output which is independent of PAL & NTSC.

If your set has a humming noise when connecting the cable, call your cable company. There is a ground issue. This can also be a safety issue.

If your signal is PAL, and your TV is NTSC only, you will have to replace the TV with a PAL one in order to properly view the programs.

PAL Problem and ADVC110

It's difficult to tell what's really going on by looking at the PC monitor. You should generate a DV file and play it back through the ADVC to a TV and see.

The issue is interlacing. Since the two fields of interlaced video are originated at different points in time, when you play both fields on a non-interlaced display like a PC monitor, you see the two combined and they don't match up. So you get half of a ball before the line, and half of the ball after the line and it looks funny.
