Question about Philips Magnavox TS3260C 32" TV

2 Answers

TV keeps shutting off

Our Magnovox is 10 1/2 years old, and in the last 2 weeks, it has just been shutting off by itself while we are watching a program or DVD. We unplug it, then plug it back in and it will come on for a little while, then it will shut off again. Please see if you can tell us what is wrong or if it is time for a new TV. Our model number is not listed in the previous pages so here it is (TS2543 C121). Thanks for any help you can give.

Re: TV keeps shutting off

Since the set needs to be unplugged and plugged back in, the requlator circuit in the power supply may have a problem. The set is over a decade old and other things are going to start going wrong with it. Capacitors will dry up, solder joints will begin to crack and the picture tube will begin to get weaker. My suggestion is to invest in a new set, with a newer technology. Hope this helps.

TV turns on at odd hours by itself

Hi, I had the "Ghost In The Machine". I tried out what I descibed in my original posting.
#1. I unplugged The Set.
#2. I pushed in and held in the power button in for about 5 minutes before bedtime. ( The PC trick I learned) I gave it 5 minutes because a tv set has much more power inside it.
#3. I again pushed in and held the power button in again for 3 minutes the next morning.
#4. I plugged the tv in again. The red standby light was lit. The set did not immeadiatly come on when I tried to power it up.
#5. 5 Minutes later I returned and hit the power button on the remote and it came on like nothing ever was wrong.
#6. It has been fine now for 3 days!!! Powers up when commanded and shuts down like normal. It has yet to come back on or act up as it was doing.
I will keep a watch on it and if it starts up acting again I will repost. I hope this information will be of use to anyone who experienced the same problem. It didn't cost a dime, just some patience. Thanks for a forum that people can exchange information and save trouble and money unless all options are exhausted. Bill

This may denote a proble in either your switching powers supply or your Horizontal section derived high voltage power supply. These are both very dangerous sections in your television. My next question is important; do you have a background in electronics? If not I would not advise you working on this problem yourself and that you take the TV to a repair shop for servicing. If you do have some background in electronics, I would like for you to make the following obeservations: What was the TV doing (it actions)prior to it going out? Did you hear any sounds before it went out like buzzing or crackling? What do you hear when you try to turn it on now, clicking? These questions are just to develop some background into what might be happening to your set. Thank you, Shuttle83
