    If someone knows were I can get a service manual that would help. I replaced both ICs #STK392-110 and checked all resistors and 3 fuses, they are all good. When I go into setup to align the cross hairs I don?t see any blue at all, the word blue does not even show up in the text line. The red shows up brightly but I cant move the cross hairs. What do I look at next?

Common problem with the older projection Magnavox TV set. The opto IC chip has failed. Try - They have instructions and kits on their site.

    If you have any of the following problems you may want to check the site for a repair kit. Most of the issue below are fairly common with the older Magnavox projection sets. 
    Symptom: Screen shrinks and expands - may or may not correct itself after the TV warms up. After a few days, weeks, or months of having the shrinking/expanding problem you may loose all audio/video but the power light will remain lit!

    (Note: The below symptoms typicaly occurs after having the expanding/shrinking screen problem above)

    Symptom: No Audio or Video but power light is on

    Symptom: Audio works but no Video. Power light still work

    Symptom: No Video. Audio is intermittent. Power light still works

      Sounds like your problems are self-inflicted! I've been there

    many times in my 35 year career!!

    1) were the correct parts installed-- STK392-110 or 120???

    2)After soldered in, did you confirm with your eyes and a meter

      that you did not short two or more pins together? Cross check

    by comparing one IC to the other,pin for pin.

    3)Did you use first quality,excellent OEM or better IC's?For

     instance,STK392-110 subs to STK394-160E in Hitachi, so that

     would be the best choice.

    4)Did you use cheap,generic replacements? They can fail

       on contact or within a short time of use!! 

                 Please let me know,I'm very interested!.......T.

    Sorry to bark up the wrong tree with the wrong dog!

    I missed your comment about the board swap!

    Obviously, we must look elsewhere----how about the power supply?--Check all fuse devices,pico fuses,etc......T.

    Probably need service lit. after that.....1-800-851-8885.??
