MAG flat screen TV

My husband bought a MAG model #3200...product #MA-32EF1AC...after 9-10 months while watching the screen went black...we still have sound. I have tried to get info online...seems there are others with the same problem but company isn't good about helping out. Contacted local repair man..says it sounds like the LCD board. What do you know about this?

If you have sound, it means the LCD is either dead or the video firmware has locked up.

You'd hope it the firmware. To reset it, the easiest thing for you to do is pull the plug, wait 1 minute and replug it.

Didn't work?

Then the LCD panels are made by Quanta Display Inc. (QDI) of Taiwan. A common problem with cheaper LCD panels is the backlight goes out, so the screen is black but there actually maybe a picture there if you look close enough. If so, its likely a dead bulb. It will need professional service unless you know someone savvy with electronics.

Mag LCD TV MA-32EF1AC has power but won't turn on with remote or with power button on side of tv screen

If neither the remote nor the tv power button has any effect then it is safe to say that you may have an issue with the power supply section of your set.

Hook a monitor to the video output, if picture is present it indicates a problem in the inverter board just below the LCD screen, [more commom] or the backlight behind the display is defective. Now! if both show the same symptom it is most likely the video graphics chip.

Why does my MAG Innovision MA-32EF1ASP Flat Screen TV not function properly?

Have your hand ready when you turn the set on and instantly change the input to get back to the tuner in the set--some sets will shut down if hooked to a input with nothing connected.

Also if using a box connected to that input unplug box and set--wait and plug both back up to allow them to reboot.

Let me know what you find--not likely a reset will cure this but possible.

Mag TV Model 3200 MA-32EF1AC Tv will power on but no picture or sound. The very last time it 'worked' there was sound but no picture. Then picture but no sound. Now, nothing. Am I out of luck?

Yes you are. The power board is out - the section that distributes voltage to the audio and video circuits. Take it to a TV repair shop but first check the price of a new set like the one you have. Get an estimate from the shop - if it exceeds the price of a new TV then it's not worth fixing.

Maginnovision LCD Monitor

You probably have a bad filter Capacitor in the power supply. Schmatics would help locate the faulty component, also you can tear it apart and look for any water intrusion. My wife cleaned the TV screen with windex and it ran down the screen and into the TV. It destroy a menu button which had to be replaced. It caused unusual simptoms.
