Philips Magnavox 27MT5405 TV problem with color

I have had this tv under 2 years. At this moment, and this just started, I have color distortion on the corners of the tv. On one corner is a bright purple,the bottom corner under that is green with white, the opposite bottom corner is also bright purple, and the top corner above that is light purple. This is on the TV with the dvd and cable on. What is it and what am i looking at in price and repair?

Magnavox tv about 11 years old does not turn on at all what is the problem? all connections are ok

Magnavox are a generally cheap brand of television so 11 years out of the product is a good run

i would assume that the power supply inside the Tv has died, you could probably get it repaired, but it would be most likely cheaper just to buy a new TV.

Brad, AV-1 INPUT, be advised this will use up the AV1 port so if you have another item that uses regular AV cables you`ll then have to use AV2 for the video in and L&R audio in, enjoy, BMW Rider
