Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television
Double words on bottom, red set and green set of letters
Thats caused by failed convergence ICs and the 6.8 ohm resistors. You can get the repair kit called the DPTV305 -DPTV345 & MAG01 chassis convergence repair kit which fits your model. The kit has the components and the CD with repair instructions and its available at the following link top of the page. http://tvrepairworld.com/phillips__magnavox_repair_kits

Well I forgot to mention that when I do turn on the TV the button flashes 9 times then pauses for a second and repeats the flash 9 times over again.
Is this a error code for the 51MP392H/17 ?

Replace Both of your convergence ICs they are big black ics will have part # on them STK392-110s or 392-120s ect...

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.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com
Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out
Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy
Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.
