Question about Philips Magnavox TS3260C 32" TV

1 Answer

Tv was on and shut off, sparks in back when replug in

My Philips Magnovox is only 6 years old. I turned it on in the front and less than a minute later it shut off and smelled like electrical. It won't turn back on and when I plug it in, it sparks in the back. I keep it unplugged now:)) I want to know what's wrong and if it's worth it to fix it moneywise. I spent $700.00 new.

The fact that you have smoke coming from the back is not a good sign if the quality of the picture was good before it failed its worth if you put in 150 to 200.Stay away from it and call a qualified technician for an estimate then you'll know.Good luck.

My philips ts2554 tv keeps turning off need tech help.


Your power supply is gone. There is only one option. Sell it for scrap and get a new TV. They don't make parts for this TV anymore. Phillips/Magnovox has discontinued it and all parts.

TV suddenly shut off, blinking red light in power button


The TV's power supply capacitors probably went bad.

Brief power on then shuts off


It could be a component short or crack on the power supply board. Open the back of the TV and look for signs of defect. The power supply board is the brown one on the right with huge capacitors.

TV keeps shutting off


Since the set needs to be unplugged and plugged back in, the requlator circuit in the power supply may have a problem. The set is over a decade old and other things are going to start going wrong with it. Capacitors will dry up, solder joints will begin to crack and the picture tube will begin to get weaker. My suggestion is to invest in a new set, with a newer technology. Hope this helps.
