INTERMITTENT PICTURE AND SOUND

SET TURNS ON AND GREEN POWER LIGHT IS ON. PICTURE AND SOUND FOR ABOUT 30-45 SECONDS, THEN LOSE BOTH PIC AND SOUND FOR ABOUT 45 SECONDS, THEN JUST KEEPS REPEATING IN THAT PATTERN. GREEN POWER LIGT IS ON AND I HAVE NO FLASHING LIGHTS ANYWHERE. TOLD COULD BE LAMP, BUT DOES THAT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE SOUND? PIC IS FANTASTIC AND SOUND IS CLEAR WHEN THEY ARE ON.

    My problem began this morning.
    TV tries to turn on... green lamp blinks. After 20 to 30 seconds I get sound and a very dim (almost not there picture) and the tv shuts off. Once I had the red light which blinked a sequence of 5.

    I was told to unplug the television for about an hour. Also sent my wife down to pick up a new projector bulb. I replaced this bulb about 14 months ago (this is the second bulb since purchasing the tv April of 2005.

    Is this a bulb problem or something more sinister?
    TIA.

You were told correctly, you have a bad lamp. When the lamp gets old, the reflector becomes cloudy and instead of reflecting the light, it converts it into heat. As the lamp heats, it draws more power, eventually too much power and the set "recycles" because the lamp is drawing too much power. Replace the lamp, use an original Sony lamp as the aftermarket replacements are known troublemakers. If the bulb fixes the problem (and I know it will because I fix these TV's everyday) be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times


helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

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 AND SOUND KEEP GOING OUT AND COME BACK FOR 30 SECONDS


One of the power supply areas are most likely going intermittent. This can be from cold solder connections on the circuit boards, or from some components failing due to age.

An experienced tech should be able to service your set, but it will be expensive for the time involved. Sometimes these types of faults can be very time consuming to resolve.
