The red convergence moves from side to side but not up or down to adjust

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.

Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television convergence problems

You need to try to adjust it with the original remote in the TECH mode---you can save the adjustments there--

With the set on a video input with nothing connected:
hit the following buttons: 0 6 2 5 9 7 STATUS

The menu should appear with choices---green(do not adjust green) red to green, blue to green etc.

On that initial menu will be a item that says store or save. Depending on the remote you have once you select red to green (cursor on remote) a grid of lines should come up---on screen will be instruction--menu to adjust and or status to navigate.

When you have the red--to green adjusted hit the status button until it takes you back to the menu where Store or save is listed and right cursor on it.
This will store the adjustments.

Go back by selecting blue to green and adjust that also and when done go back and save it.

Turn the set off to exit the service mode and see what you have---IF THE SET DOES NOT RETAIN these adjustments made in the Tech menu something is wrong with its DCU--digital convergence unit---that stores the adjustments.

A sign that amps are going bad, right now you can check resistors in convergence board alongside the amps, check resistance to see if right.
