Question about Philips Magnavox 55P9271 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Magnavox 55 I have a Magnavox 55" Projection TV Model 55P8288A that will let me power on and adjust the volume through my cable company remote most of the time. Then it will stop working altogether and I have to adjust the volume and turn the TV on / off manually. After a few days it starts working again. I have switched out the remote serveral times and the remotes work fine with my Magnavox STD TV which I have in my bedroom, they both use the same remote code. Could it be a dirty IR lens? If so, where is it? I can't seem to find it. The TV is about 5 years old and thanks to your post on the fading color, I have order the replacement coolant kit. So if I can get this remote problem corrected it will make me a happy camper.

Sounds to me like you need a new control panel board which should run you about $150-$200 max! might be semi burnt out like mine was and that is what i had to pay not sure if this helps but hey ya never know :)

Need owners manual for Magnavox 55" Projection TV 55P8288A, pleas

This manual does not seem to be available anywhere. I looked for it on the Magnavox website and it was not available. You can call the magnavox customer support at this telephone number. 1-800-705-2000. Give them the model number of you television and ask them for their help getting a copy of the owners manual. I also check for it on a google search. The search turn up no source either. So you best bet is to try and find another person who has the same model television and ask them to make a copy for you. You can do this on this website by looking up the people who have asked for help with the same model television and leaving them a message that you need a copy of the owners manual.You can also go to other help websites and ask for their help in getting a copy of the owners manual. I hope this information helps you with your problem
