Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

No sound-power switch on T.V. flashing 9 times

My Magnavox is almost 2 years old and now has no sound. The power button flashes 9 times. Sometimes it won't turn on and other times it turns on but then no sound. About a month ago we had the convergance replaced-picture was bad. Now, no sound and having problems turning it on and off. I've tried unplugging it and when I plug it back in, it will work. But when I shut it off and turn it back on, the picture comes on but no sound. The volume and mute buttons do not work. Does anyone know what the 9 flashes on the power switch is indicating? Any resolutions for this problem?

May be a bad optoIC. Goto to see if they have a repair kit for your model.

The power light is just blinking red on my panasonic 1080i hdtv. cant even switch it off using the power button. picture and sound come on for about a second when the tv is switched on after power cord...

The power light keeps flashing and the tv won't turn on. If you unplug for a minute and hit the power button it sound like it is coming on then it shuts off and the red power light flashes slowly. The TV is a Panisonic 1080i HDTV, about 6-7 years old.

Why my tv turn off on its own

Most projection TVs that turn themselves off will flash a code on the power light (or a light). (Usually 2 to 9 flashes, a pause and then repeat). Give this code to a Magnavox service center and they may be able to say what is wrong.

Just replaced convergence chips on my 51inch magnavox and when i turned it on the first time it beeped a couple times and something popped. now the power button flashes w no picture or sound

If the set worked before with just convergence issues with the old IC's then I suspect you need to check the soldering you did on the IC's. If there are any solder bridges between any of the pins this would short out the power supply and cause a fuse or resistor to open up.

Plasma tv screen goes black once you turn it on. Only sound

I have a panasonic TH-42PX60U plasma TV. When I watch TV programing I have no problems, or with the DVD input. But if I switch to another input, be it video game (PS2) or vcr the screen sometimes goes black and the red power lcd light next to the power switch flashes. Holding the power button in for a few seconds will shut down the tv. Then I can turn it back on and it may operate normally again for a undetermined period of time, before the screen goes black again. This never happened when new. The tv is about 1 year old. Any ideas on this problem? Thanks Ernie

I have a Magnavox 51" Projector TV. Model 51MP392H/17

Hello bullmuscle,

This is a power supply problem, I would suspect the HV power supply because the primary and secondary supplies anymore are tied to the HV power supply. This type of repair requires certain pieces of equipment, to test voltages, look at signals, and to if need be test for shorts in inductors (Switching PS transformer and Flyback transformer). I would not recommend that you try to fix this yourself, The cost for this type of problem is not that expensive and can be done in one evening, if the parts are available. You may be fortunate and it could be just a blown fuse, in the HV or LV power supply circuit

I hope this helps,

Thank you,
