Question about Philips 26MD255V 26 in. LCD TV/DVD Combo

3 Answers

Magnavox 26MD255V/17 I have a Magnavox 26MD255V/17 26 inch LCD TV and when you turn it on, you can watch maybe 5 minutes of TV before the menu starts scrolling through the input selections, muting sound off and on... like it is possessed. Is there a fix for this that I can try myself before taking this in for service? Please Help!

    I have the same TV and the same problem. The source comes up on the left side and keeps scrolling thru on its own and then picks its own source. Then the channels keep changing on their own also. I cannot watch TV for longer than 2 minutes.

If it is not the afore mentioned remote or button issues, it is a defective IR amp sending the control IC signal from the logic amp to the OSD control. It is a Magnavox, not designed for the long haul.

It is a brand new remote.... and may be a stuck key on the tv, but when I press them there seems to be no problem. Is there a circuit, fuse, board in the system that could have come lose in shipping?

Try unplugging the set for 2 minutes first then try operations again. If that doesn't fix it maybe one of the buttons on the TV is stuck or the remote control is sending erratic commands.

I have exactly the same problem with a Magnavox LCD 42", very similar model 42MF437B/37. I don't have a solution. If you unplug the TV and plug it back it starts working, sometimes for hours, sometimes for less than 5 minutes, before it turns off again. Does anyone have any real solution?

Scrolling lines in the picture

The capacitors in the sweep supply and maybe in the main power supply are starting to dry up. Your going to need to get a tech to go over the boards and search out the dryed capacitors. It will take some time and maybe a bit costly. May want to think maybe about a new set? Good Luck
