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!

LG 55LM4600-UC LED TV I have was squirted with a squirt gun. Would replacing the t-con board fix this tv? Please read further details.


when water shorts out something it overloads a lot of other components so the best advice is to take it in for a proper diagnosis.
you just replace a board but another board is damaged it might just blow the board you replaced and that would prove nothing

Check and replace damaged component/s at its horizontal scan output section circuit. Check the LOT (Line Output Transformer) too for damage. Replace the horizontal scan output transistor.
