Question about Philips Magnavox TS3260C 32" TV

1 Answer

Turning on My tv is about six years old. Everytime I turn it on after a few seconds it shut off. (when it shuts off the front power light does not go off). I have to turn it off and then turn it back on again. I go through this about 10 or 15 times before it stays on. Is this something that can be fixed? If so, can I fix it?

Re: Turning on

These sets are notorious to have bad components in the power supply, and if you have solid state repair experience, you will need a service manual to repair this SMPS(switch mode power supply) Good Luck

Philips Magnavox 32MT3305 keeps shutting off with relay clicking. The green power light stays on but the picture and sound go out right after the orange status bar goes away. If the channel up or down...

the relay is the safety protective device..sometimes a defective component or something. maybe an overloaded power supply might caused this before any thing could gets worst..the relay will shut the unit..

TV shuts off a few seconds after turning on. I have to unplug and replug to get it to turn on again. mus repeat a number of times til it stays on.Is this a big deal? Is it worth repairing?

It sounds like bad connections in the high voltage transformer and the horizontal driver transformer on the main board, if the tv is more than 10 years old you are further off putting your money towards a new set.

The TV started turning itself off occasionally a

Most likley what it could be is an interferance in the TV. Modern TV's have a feature that will shut itself off when it is not receving a picture. For instance, after so many minutes of "snow" it will shut off.sometimes this can make the TV think there is no signal at shut itself off.Anyway, I suspect its an interferance issue. Perhaps moving the TV further from the source of the interferance might help.

61" samsung DLP 3 years old. Keeps turning off by itself.

Get a small but powerful used computer fan and place it in the TV to replace the defective old fan.That's the best way.The factory fans in these TVs don't last.

TV shuts off and red standby/timer lights blinks red until I power the set off. When it shuts down it does so with a very loud snap. When I turn it back on the screen is blue and has light blue...

The most common cause for what you are seeing is a shorted gun in the picture tube. When 2 elements (heater and cathode) of one of the guns inside the neck of the picture tube touch, that gun goes full on and overloads the flyback (high voltage) transformer. If it is in the blue gun, the screen will go bright blue with light blue "retrace" lines in it. The computer senses the overload and shuts the set off. At 2 years old the tech most likely tried removing the short by arcing between the elements. This works sometimes but the short often comes back a few months later. Another attempt at removing the short could be tried, and it might work this time, but it may or may not work for long. The ony other solution is to replace the picture tube but that would cost much more than the set is worth. A qualified tech will be able to tell you if this is the problem in your set.
