Magnavox 32mf605w 17 no picture, blinks repeatedly

When we turn the tv on, it blinks repeatedly, no picture but when it blinks on can hear sound. Tried unplugging for over an hour and that did not help. Wondering if it would be worth trying to have it fixed or dispose and purchase new.

I'll try to help.

First (obvious) step - be sure there's no remaining warranty and/or dealer help available.

This points to an internal power supply problem, however sometimes it can be as simple as a (internal) bad connection or loose connector.

Most shops will charge around $75 just to diagnose it, which they would often apply towards the repair. If there is a replaceable module that would fix it, expect no less than $70-$100 in parts, plus a total labor charge of $100-ish.

If you find someone who knows what they're doing, and does TV repair as a "sideline"... it will often save you many $$ (Craigslist search possibly?).

Disposal is throwing 100% of it away... sometimes Craigslist or eBay can net you a few $$ back for an "as-is" sell, versus a total loss. Possibly even give it to a thrift store that has a repair tech.

If you are not afraid of trying a couple things yourself (or have someone you trust), it may save $$.

(standard warning)
WARNING - Dangerous, and even lethal voltages are present inside your TV set. Do not attempt this unless you are trained in these kinds of repairs. Leave the TV unplugged for several hours (or preferably a full day) before attempting such.

Check all connectors inside the set, unplug, replug a couple times. Sometimes connections can become dirty &/or corroded after a while, and simply un/re-plugging them will clean them enough to last a while. I've even had cases of this that were so bad that I had to remove the connector and directly solder the wires to the PC boards. Sometimes a design engineer is under such pressure to save cost that low quality parts are used, which results in a much lower lifetime than would otherwise be possible. (it's sometimes called design-to-die... few mfr's want their products to last forever, so you'll have to buy a new one... sad but true)

If you do try this, do NOT attempt to run the TV with the back off... that's just asking for serious or fatal shocks.

Be safe, good luck!

My shop had this problem yesterday. We had to change the DMD to correct it. One of the data lines was being drawn down intermitently. This doesn't eliminate the digital PCB, but, we have seen the DMD do this more than a digital. You should have an authorized shop do the repair. Contact Samsung at 1-800-SAMSUNG or contact by email: Hope this helps.

SOURCE: TV Magnavox 50ML8105D/17 Problem

I have the same problem my DLP TV would shut off after 30 minutes or less all red LED's. Solution: The fan on the lamp assembly was not turning at the proper RPM (bearing going bad) so it was going into overtemp mode. The original part number was a SUNON KDE1209ptv3 12v 1.3W I had a hard time finding one to match that spec. DIGI-KeyCorp ( was able to cross reference it to a 3 lead P11034-ND part number (NMB-MAT model fba09a12L).

I Installed the fan and problem went away.
Remove the lamp from the lamp assembly
Remove the back panel.
From the back, slide the main circuit board to the left (loose one screw)
Remove the power interlock on the lamp assembly (2 screws)
Disconnect Lamp assembly cooling fan lead.
Remove the 4 silver slotted screws on the lamp assembly, 2 in the front and 2 in the back.
Carefully remove the lamp assembly from the rear. WATCH the Mirror.
Remove fan, cut leads and solder or **** splice on to the new fan.
Repeat steps for installation

The 3 blinks is a error code for the convergence circuit. You can get the convergence repair kit for your model at the following link which contains both Convergence ICs and all six feed resistors and they include step by step instructions with pictures that show how to do the repair yourself. Heres a link to the proper kit for your model Panasonic.

I have a magnavox 32mf605w/17 flat screen TV my sound us not working is there any way to hook up external speakers to it?

Hi Lisa,
Many a times the speakers in flat panel TVs go bad. You either change the speakers or hook your tv to some sound system like a home theater or some music system in your house. There is AV out sockets at the back of the TV. Out of the three ie. yellow, red and white use red and white to connect to the music system, put the system on auxiliary mode and enjoy the sound of your tv. Good luck.

My tv powers off as soon as it is turned on, any ideas?

This is an issue that happens with some of the older firmware versions for this tv. You need to check your current firmware in the menue/features. Then go to the philips website and download the current firmware and follow the company instructions for installation via usb.

A magnavox HDTV model 32MF605w/17. Is there a manual volume control on this set that is hidden somewhere? My remote is broken.

ok you have two different model #'s here so i went and found both pdf manuals , i assume the 32mf605w is the one you want though . but here is both

32mf605w link here , just scroll down and type the numbers shown below click download and open with adobe reader , once downloaded scroll down to page 7 , as you can see the controls are on the top of the tv

50ml8105d link here , scroll down to page 5 , as you can see the controls are just below the screen in the middle , probably behind a flip out or up door .

I have the same issue with my MAGNAVOX 32MF605W/17 when i turn the power on it flashes white then goes black and the amber standby light remains on.... you decribed it as a Mainboard Problem... my issue is...

I had the same problem caused by a power surge. Removed the back cover (kind of a pain in the *** because it's a tight fit) then removed the metal cover over the circuit boards. There were three 1000uf 35vdc capacitors on the Left board capacitors 2074, 2079 and 2080, that had bulged out tops. Replaced those with the same capacitor from radioshack (p/n: 272-1032 stock at most radioshacks)for $3 and the tv works fine. During this I also noted that the plug right next to the power switch down by the face was loose, pressed that in and everything is kosher...good luck

Yes you can. This TV has both VGA-In and component in support. The only thing you need to change is the input you're using with your remote control. As easy as changing the channel!
