Question about Philips 6P4851C 48 in. Rear Projection Television
We just purchased an older model (wooden sides) Magnavox Star PIP model # RK8536AK01. It worked fine the first few days we had it and then the screen went black but the power light was still on. So we shut the tv off and tried to turn it on again and all we get is the black screen and a green power light. So we left it shut off for a few hours and tried again. The Tv turned on and we watched a movie for about 15 to 20 minutes and then the screen went black again. Could it be a resistor doing this or something else? If it is a resistor could we fix it or do we need to have a repairman do it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Intermitant problems on old TV's are almost always poor solder connections. If you have done some soldering before you may be able to repair yourself, if not i wouldn't try to learn on this. Begin by gently tapping components on the circuit boards while the TV is on good chance you will tap an area and it will shut right off. make sure you are using something insulated and non-metalic. if you find a spot that is especially sensitive get to the bottom of that circuit board and begin soldering. this is probably the most likely cause but there are other possibilities. If you attempt this do be very carefull. My honest suggestion is to have a pro do it, if it just solder work it shouldnt cost that much maybe around a 100 to 150 if you can take it in somewhere.
