Question about Philips Magnavox MS3252S 32" TV

1 Answer

No pic/sound I have a 32 inch Maganavox MS3242S, when I push the power button the green light comes on showing power but the screen remains black like there is no power and no sound; not even the clicking noise one hears when it is being turned on. Any ideas why?

Re: no pic/sound

If you dont here anything then it sounds like the switching power supply or the horizontal output circuits not starting up. this requires troubleshooting with a variac, as well as maybe a scope. If your not trained to work on HI Voltage circuits you should seek assistance with this repair. Theres HI voltage inside these sets even after they are unplugged for a while. sorry i couldnt be of more assistance.

Your model has a maximum resolution of 720p. What you might want to do is make sure that both your cable/sat box and game stations are outputting at no more than 720 resolution. It's easy to assume that all HDTVs may accept a higher signal, and while they might, some of the scene changes or handshakes may make that operation cause the symptoms you describe.

Tv will not power up.

Silly question but, did you try to reset the TV by unplugging it for 2 minutes then plugging back in? Its worth a shot if nothing else.

Channnel keeps flicking like your changing channels with remote

when you say flickering??? are you saying the screen goes black and comes back on?? does the sound go out at the same time and comes bag on with the pic ? Is the sound there when this happens but is distorted. Is the pic blacked out or is it greying out with lines and twisting?? Need more info please as if its blacking out and the sound goes with it it may be going into shutdown. If the pic is getting kinda greyish with it twisting and the sound is there and ditorted then the tuner could be bad
