Question about Philips Magnavox 20MS233S 20" TV

1 Answer

Blue Screen with thin horizontal white lines

I have a 20" Smart Series Phillips Magnavox TV, which I purchased in 1999. It's always worked with - excellent picture and sound quality - until recently. I now have a blue screen with thin horizontal white lines in place of a picture. The audio appears to be functioning well. Does anyone know what may be causing this problem, and how I can fix it?

Thanks!

I have seen this on mine. Check the cable going into your TV and make sure it is good. The ground portion of the cable could not be making a good connection.

White Screen w/ White Lines, Sound On, Turns off after 2 or 3 secs.


Hi If you mean thin white lines, this is is an indication of a problem in the Horizontal Drive ckt. most likely the Damper Diode has opened or shorted, this would cause the visual symptom and then the set would shut down, unfortunately this is a problem best left to a qualified technician to repair, hope this helps.

Tv showing blue screen with flyback lines sound ok


Flyback lines? Is the picture all white with no brightness control with faint horizontal faint lines? If this is what you are saying, the screen voltage could be bad, and if thats the case, the picture tube or the flyback itself could be bad. You could also have a bad connection on the crt socket
