Question about Philips Magnavox 42MF521D/37 Television

1 Answer

TV makes "Pops" and "Crackles" sounds from the back while viewing

I have a phillips 36" Magnavox Smart Series Plus TV model number TP3684C101 (It is not a flat screen, LCD, or plasma...just the regular televsion set). Recently after I turned it on, it began to make a "pop and crackle" sound from inside the back panel of the TV and I could see a flickering light through the vent panel in the back of the tv. I was still able to see the picture perfectly but the TV itself sounded like it might explode (or cause some sort of electrical hazard). Could this be a replaceable fuse or some other repair that I can do myself? Any help that you are able to provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Remove the cover and observe the source of the light. if its in the picture tube it can be fixed with a picture rejuvonator. if its a cracked solder joint a soldering iron and solder will fix it.

DVD input with signal access


IF I understand you correctly, the VCR, Satellite, etc is connected using an RF modulator/coaxial cable wire going into Antenna in

IF this is true, then you have an AV IN port (red, yellow, white) free on the back. Just connect the red, yellow, white from the out of the DVD - you can use 1 or 2 - just remember which one you used; and connect it to the AV IN on the back of the TV.

THEN press ch down on the TV remote until you get to "AV1" - it is below channel 2; double check DVD player to make DVD is playing and voila!

Suddenly went off!


This is a power supply issue. Probably in the high voltage stages. Maybe a fuse, regulator IC, or Horiz. Output transistor or all of them. If you don't know anything about TV repair, you should take it to a shop that will provide an estimate to you.
