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.

    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.

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 just switched from Cox Cable to AT&T U-Verse. We have a several sets throughout the house. Once the TV codes are programmed into the remotes, the U-Verse receiver and the TV are supposed to turn on and...


Yes there is, at&t techs have issues with philips/magnavox. When you are programming these tv's, you will notice if u get the right code on this particular brand, the light on the tv will blink but not turn on. This is the correct code but, the simultaneous action wont work, you'll have to hit tv first by itself and then hit power. Don't know why, but it is what it is.

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

Close caption turns on and off by itself problem


Check the cable box to make sure the captions aren't truned on in the cable box.

If not -if it really is the Magnavox caption service- then -

This is assuming you have the original remote:
1 Press MENU to show the on-screen
menu.
2 Press VOL+ or VOL- until SET is highlighted.
3 Press CH+ or CH- repeatedly to
highlight CLOSED CAPTION.
4 Press VOL+ or VOL-
to display the
CLOSED CAPTION menu.
5 Press CH+ or CH- to select the
closed caption you want (OFF, CC-1,
CC-2, or CC-MUTE).
CC-MUTE sets
the TV to show closed captions when
you press MUTE. The TV volume will be
disabled until you press MUTE again to
restore the sound.
6 Press VOL+ or VOL-
to confirm your
selection.
7 Press TV/AV/EXIT to remove the
menu.
