Re: No picture No sound

I agree with techman, but I call it the start-up supply, which gives the Switch Mode Power Supply Intergrated Circuit, a supply (V+). This supply is about 10 to 30 Volts and supplies a few milliamps of current to the integrated circuit (SMPS) which starts giving out pulses. The pulses switch on and off the Line Output Transistor, or a Power Transistor which energises a transformer. The transformer provides all the voltages required to work the rest of the circuits. One if these voltages takes over from the-start up supply. The failure is usually the Power Transistor, or the Transformer (line output). Replacing the Transistor will usually bring the set to life, but it may fail again due to the fault which caused the transistor to blow. The only solution is to get a service engineer who will check the components before switching on again.

Re: No picture No sound

This is an indication that the sweep power supply did not give the turn on pulse from the SMPS, thats the main power supply. If you know how to use a multimeter I will send you the instructions to troubleshoot this supply. Or you may need to trouble shoot the sweep supply as well. If you have no electronic or solid state repair experience, Please stay safe and call in a trained tech to assist you with this repair. Good Luck PS please rate this thread

Magnavox 27m53404/17 Picture went out

Hello there, I'm having a major problem with my TV, I have called all of the local TV repair shops and they all are the same, they want money money money before they will even speak with me about the problem I'm having. This is the only TV in my entire household for a family of 4 and we desperately need the TV in working condition for our kids. I don't want to have to put out $500 for another set if I don't absolutely have to.

The Problem...

About 3-4 months ago the TV when turned on, the picture would slowly come into view and be very scrambled and before the picture would come into complete view the TV power would shut itself off, but the power light would remain on. You can hear the "Click" noise when it would shut itself off.

2-3 seconds after it 'shut itself off' then the TV would make the "Click" noise (The same noise it makes when you first turn it on), it would make the "Click" noise over and over and over again but nothing would happen. So i would turn it off and on again and change the channel rapidly until after 2-3 minutes it would come into view and work.

So we decided to leave the TV on 24 hours a day. Then today we awoke and it was off and making the "clicking" noise over and over and over again but with no picture or sound. Now it wont even turn on/off it just sits there and goes "Click, Click Click Click" and doesn't do anything.

I described the problem as best as I can. Here is the TV information and specifications...

Philips 27 Inch Tube TV

Model Number... 27PT54 3S37A

Serial Number... 78438404

105 Watts
Date Code March 2003


Now that I typed the model number there are threads everywhere people saying the same issue exactly as me, I will read them but please someone tell me is there anything I can do...
Can anyone explain exactly what is wrong with the Tv and why it's doing this?

Also, what should I expect to pay to repair it?

Any information or help would be appreciated very much.

Thanks in advance,

Just got off the phone with certified Philips shop...they said they will repair it for $100-$130 with a $25 down payment just drop it off and he will call me when its done. Does this sound like its worth it or a rip off?

TV has audio sound and no picture

There are many possibilities and most of them have to do with the "D" board, Sony p/n# A1346948A but testing is something generally beyond the scope of those less than technically equipped. You could order the whole board and put it in but that might be more than the simple fix you wanted or you wouldn't be here. So my best advice is to take it in to a qualified shop and have them estimate and repair it.. I see 3 or 4 of these sets in my shop a month, Sony XBR, and they're still very much worth the repair..

No picture, then no picture and no sound

if your could hear a slight ticking (tick-tick tick) or whining then some electronic component might have been damaged (shorted). if you have no experience repairing electronic equipments then i suggest you to send your TV to a service station!
