Question about Philips Magnavox MS2530C 25" TV
When I turn it on the red power button stays on but the picture comes up then disapears. Is there anyway to fix this manually?
Hello there, I'm having a major problem with my TV, I have called all
of the local TV repair shops and they all are the same, they want money
money money before they will even speak with me about the problem I'm
having. This is the only TV in my entire household for a family of 4
and we desperately need the TV in working condition for our kids. I
don't want to have to put out $500 for another set if I don't
absolutely have to.
About 3-4 months ago the TV when turned on, the picture would slowly come into view and be very scrambled and before the picture would come into complete view the TV power would shut itself off, but the power light would remain on. You can hear the "Click" noise when it would shut itself off.
2-3 seconds after it 'shut itself off' then the TV would make the "Click" noise (The same noise it makes when you first turn it on), it would make the "Click" noise over and over and over again but nothing would happen. So i would turn it off and on again and change the channel rapidly until after 2-3 minutes it would come into view and work.
So we decided to leave the TV on 24 hours a day. Then today we awoke and it was off and making the "clicking" noise over and over and over again but with no picture or sound. Now it wont even turn on/off it just sits there and goes "Click, Click Click Click" and doesn't do anything.
I described the problem as best as I can. Here is the TV information and specifications...
Philips 27 Inch Tube TV
Model Number... 27PT54 3S37A
Serial Number... 78438404
Date Code March 2003
Now that I typed the model number there are threads everywhere people saying the same issue exactly as me, I will read them but please someone tell me is there anything I can do...
Can anyone explain exactly what is wrong with the Tv and why it's doing this?
Also, what should I expect to pay to repair it?
Any information or help would be appreciated very much.
Thanks in advance,
Just got off the phone with certified Philips shop...they said they will repair it for $100-$130 with a $25 down payment just drop it off and he will call me when its done. Does this sound like its worth it or a rip off?

I agree with pga_pa_guy, I have repaired several of that model. My professional opinion, invest in a new one.
As for you Dickturner1, I can tell along with others you should not be allowed to post where you no nothing about. I plan to take this higher.
