Question about Philips Magnavox 20MS233S 20" TV

1 Answer

TV Comes On But No Picture

The power comes on, but when you put a channel on it has static and diagonal or horizontal lines going thru it or a Blue Screen. When you get the blue screen it you change channel on the remote you will get a picture with the lines again. Then if you click on a volumn button you can hear the sound. Started doing this a few days ago and got worse now it won't even get a picture UNLESS (this is the weird part) if you use the hair dryer or microwave the picture and sound will come on perfectly until you turn the appliance off then you get Blue screen again. Any suggestions??

I have heavy lines both horizontally and vertically. If something is over-driven, how do I get to it for adjustment?


1.- Are lines overimposed to the normal picture?
2.- Horizontal lines? Maybe slanted or diagonal.

It looks like you have screen voltage problem.
Or 185 volts is too low for driving the 3 (red - green - blue) transistors.

Adjustment should be by the flyback body itself.

Not getting full pic on certain channels


I've seen this problem before. Try to adjust the horizontal settings in the tv. you should be able to adjust the picture up just a bit and it will get rid of the lines. also if you are hooked up thru component or hdmi you should be able to press the # button on your time warner remote to fill the screen. Hope this helps.
