Question about Philips Magnavox 42MF521D/37 Television
Dear sir: I have a 42" Mganavox LCD that is just 3 years of age. It had been trouble free up to one afternoon, and "POP" and the whole unit went down. Being out of warranty, and a bit of a handyman, I pulled the back panel and circiuot card and discovered a blown fuse: 250V5A slow blow...I replaced it and reconnected the power...and again it popped the fuse! I have a novice tech that looked it over and checked the capacitors for swelling. they are fine. he is not sure what additional damage there might be without digging more. Is this unit worth taking to a shop and paying the repair bill? It retailed new at near $1400. I can replace it for under $900 same size, or downsize until prices drop even more. Thankyou for your time
Seems to be a fualty circut board or some of the circut components gone bad. they can replace or repair them at least untill the tv,s go down a bit more in price i would get the estimates then decide. if it was the screen it self cracked or broken then i would tell you to go for a new tv.
