Question about Philips Magnavox MS2530C 25" TV

2 Answers

It takes 5 to 7 minutes to turn on my Magnavox HD TV

This is very frustrating. When I hit the button to turn on the TV itself, the button blinks for about 5 to 7 minutes and then goes out without turning on the TV. I have to hit the button again and this time the little light on the button gets brighter then goes out, without turning on the TV. I then have to hit the button again and finally the TV will come on. I bought the TV about 2 years ago. This problem started about 6 to 9 months ago. Please help. I have tried unplugging the TV overnight and plugging it back in in the morning, hoping that may reset the switch or something. I'm no TV expert.

    Can you explain in more detail? How would I go about warming a switchmode power supply? Can this problem get worse and then the tv won't turn on at all?

IFyou feel confident and can locate switch mode power supply with back removed.
Try warming switchmode power supply before turning TV on.
If TV turns on normaly then there are some small capcitors that are a common cause of this fault.
Otherwise look for DRY or CRACKED solder jointson PCB
BUT DON'T do any of the above if your are not confident send it to a TV repaiman.

  • Hot Tip Sep 11, 2008

    Warming power supply can be done with a hair dryer.

    This fault usualy gets worse in colder weather.

    Somtimes this fault if left to long will cause total failure of switch mode supply.

I have the radion shack hdtv remote. Cat no


Download the manual and codes from here

http://www.remotecentral.com/cgi-bin/files/dl.cgi?file=others/radio_shack/15135-manual.zip&area=other

Here is how to set the code...

1. Turn TV on
2. Press TV button on remote
3. Hold P button on remote until LED blinks twice
4. Enter the first 5 digit code for Magnavox TV's
5. Press Power button - TV should turn off. If TV doesn't turn off repeat steps 2-5 with the next 5 digit code, until either TV goes off or run out of codes.
6. If out of codes use searching for code method below...

TV codes for Magnavox

10047, 11454, 10054, 10154, 10000, 10250, 10051, 10180, 10060, 10030, 10171, 10092, 10706, 11913, 11904, 11755, 10019, 11365, 11254, 10802, 10386, 10282, 10020, 10187, 10186, 10024, 10179, 10096

Searching for code

1. Turn on TV.
2. Press TV button on remote
3. Press and hold P button until LED blinks twice
4. Enter code 991 on remote - LED blinks twice
5. Press 1 - Device key blinks twice
6. Press Power button once
7. Press and release CH+ key until TV turns off.

At this point in the manual, the manual is only correct depending on what type of TV you have.

In the manual if you press the Power on button the TV should turn itself back on, the fail to state that not all TV's turn on by the power button, the majority now are triggered to turn on, on channel change, however you can't use channel change here to check it as you'll go to the next code... here is my solution...

8. Turn TV back on either using original TV remote, or buttons on front (most TV's if you change channels they come back out of standby mode, very few now turn on by pressing the power button).

9. Press Power button on remote - TV should turn itself off again.
10. Press P button on remote to lock in that code.

If the device does not turn off press CH- to go back through the codes, press and release P button when TV turns off.

Finding code

If you used the search function you might want to know what code it's using. To do this follow these instructions...

1. Press TV button
2. Press and hold P until LED blinks twice
3. Enter 990 and LED blinks twice
4. Press 1 and count number of times LED blinks this is the first digit of your code (e.g. 1 blink = 1, 2 blinks = 2, etc).
5. Repeat step 4 pressing buttons 2 - 5 for the other digits (e.g. for the second digit press 2 count number of blinks.. etc)

At this point the manual doesn't tell you how to get out of this mode, I presume pressing any other button on the remote other than 1-5 will take you out of this mode, either that or leaving the remote alone for 5 minutes.

Magnavox 19" TV shuts itself off.....won't stay on


I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

We plugged in the tv and hit the power button the green timer light blinked for about a minute. We hit he power button and it stayed on for about 5 second and turned off. We just bought this tv used and...


This is a common problem with this kind of tv. When you give the unit power the green light will blink because it is telling you that the projection lights are warming up. Sometimes it will take up to a minute. When you hit the power button again after only 5 seconds it told the tv to power off. I hope this will help you out.

TV Turning on and off by its self


You have problems with a condenser that allow the power supply to maintan an acceptable level of voltage in order to keep the TV on. take to a tech to be fixed. unfortunatelly, this problem needs a tech to take measures in the circuitry to find the component that causes the problem.

TV turns on at odd hours by itself


Hi, I had the "Ghost In The Machine". I tried out what I descibed in my original posting.
#1. I unplugged The Set.
#2. I pushed in and held in the power button in for about 5 minutes before bedtime. ( The PC trick I learned) I gave it 5 minutes because a tv set has much more power inside it.
#3. I again pushed in and held the power button in again for 3 minutes the next morning.
#4. I plugged the tv in again. The red standby light was lit. The set did not immeadiatly come on when I tried to power it up.
#5. 5 Minutes later I returned and hit the power button on the remote and it came on like nothing ever was wrong.
#6. It has been fine now for 3 days!!! Powers up when commanded and shuts down like normal. It has yet to come back on or act up as it was doing.
I will keep a watch on it and if it starts up acting again I will repost. I hope this information will be of use to anyone who experienced the same problem. It didn't cost a dime, just some patience. Thanks for a forum that people can exchange information and save trouble and money unless all options are exhausted. Bill
