This is a simple and common problem. The solder joints on the vertical output IC have cracked loose. I actually did a housecall on the exact same set with the exact same symptoms this morning! A good tech will resolder the pins of the vertical output IC and all other major solder joints on the main board and the set will play fine.

Very easy fix.....just press the "display" button on the remote control so that the on screen display is turned off when you are watching TV.

This television is having a problem with intermittent component operation. The turning of and on is a sign that there is a problem with the circuits and the television going into the protection mode and coming out again. This will happen as the faulty component or components re-stabilize their operation.This problem will only get worse and could cause major damage to your television. You should take this television into a service center to have it tested and repaired. The Magnavox customer support telephone number is 1-800-705-200. Give them the model number of your television and the problem you are having with intermittent shut-offs during operation. They will be able to tell you how to get your television tested and serviced. I hope this information help you with your problem.

Tv goes on fine, sound good and pic green light receptor on tv starts blinking and we lose pic sound still good. When we tap the light on tv pic comes on fine for a while then same thing happens again

This television is having problem with intermittent tuner reception.The tuner is the signal processor for the television. The video section is intermittent. This could be a simple matter of cold solder joints that can occur over time due to heat expansion and contraction.This causes the metal in solder to expand and then when the television cools down, the metal that is expanded cannot contract.The solder joints then becomes intermittent. All televisions suffer from this problem.Since you are able to still able to receive the video signal, there appears to be no component damage. You will need to take this television in to a service center and have them rework the solder on all the areas around the tuner section of the television and any other areas that may be susceptible to the problem due to overheating.You can call Magnavox customer support at this telephone number 1-800-705-2000 and ask them for the location of a service center in your area. Or take it in to a local repair center and have them test and service the television for you. You can also try taking it to a school where they are teaching electronic repair and ask them if they will work on the television for you.They will usually do the work for a cost of parts and a small labor charge. Call them first to make sure they will help you and tell you how you can get the television serviced This may not be the only problem you are having with the television. That is why you need to have it tested first. I hope this information help you with your problem.

Picture goes intermittent after a while; sound plays throughout.

I would take it to a repair shop, they charge around $50 to look it over, and then tell you want is wrong with it and they will give you the cost to fix it. This is what I do when TV's go out. It will save you time and money in the long run.

Color loss (but onscreen displays in color) - DIY repair?

your description was great, thank you

there is only 1 hope for you on this one, intermittent color is a touf one, tap on the board with wooden or plastic handel see if you can make the color come and go that way, if so you have a intermittent break in the board, my guess is by one of the big ic chips on the board. if not able to make the problem act up with the taping then you have to look at the croma section and color oscillator section , this is not easy needs skiz and a scope and a little know how. depending on what they need for time a shop would charge 100-210 to fix this kind of problem. sorry this is not what you wanted to hear but is one of the tufer problem to fix on a tv.
