Philips set top box malfunction due to power cut

A power cut in my area thusday night/friday morning (I know this happened because, as always, my cooker clock was zeroed) has made my set top box malfunction i.e. no tv picture. when i go through the usual proceedure (it's a little unusual in set up i.e. a combi tv linked to a dvd player with the set top interposing) the screen says 'loading' and then cuts out altogether. what can i do? if anything.

cheers

Sounds like a capacitor in the unit might be faulty. not reaching full charge, any other items get spiked in the blackout? insurance might be the way to go. i had a set top box that fried all the capacitors, i replaced the , cost about $10Au and some time soldering. unit works better now that before,

My manavox tv dvd/vhs unit is hooked up to a converter box. All I had to do was turn on the converter box and then the tv. It was working just fine untill I cut if off one day, instead of leaving it on...


  1. Try unplugging the converter box from the power, and RCA or Coax connector. Reconnect the power and RCA or Coax connector. Try turning it on.
  2. Look for a reset button. May be a small hole with a button inside, if you find one use a paperclip or similar to press it.
  3. Try the converter box with a different TV.
  4. If this doesn't fix the problem, replace the converter box.

Why does my tv turn itself onto standby several times a night


Possible fault could be that any electronic component is either malfunctioning or you have a case of dry soldering , loose connection on heating of components. when the set trips off try to tap gently for resumption. if not cool off and switch on, If you are familiar with electronics open the rear cover, check from the power circuit onwards for visual dry connections, further you can take a voltage check when the set switches from the power supply to the output drives .hope this will help

NO POWER ON MY TV SET PHILIPS 21PT 3952


You have an electrical malfunction inside the unit which can NOT be repaired by tapping, nor can it be repaired by a person who doesn't have extensive experience repairing consumer electronics devices. It is imperative that you have a professional repair the device... or throw it away, if you don't feel the repair cost can be justified. This problem will NOT get better on it's own or by tapping, and could conceivably result in the unit self-destructing and burning your house down in the process.

No TV "Select Source" Menu Option


Had the same problem and found on the back of the tv on the black box that the cable hooks to there is a plug at the top of that box on the left side came loose. If you slide that box to the right you can completely remove it from the tv. Reinstall it and make sure it's plugged in tight your tv setting should come back.

Manual will not help - if you unplugged it all night, and it will still not power up, try one more outlet in the house. If it still will not help, then you need to replace the power supply for the TV. Sorry.

YES..............All of these Magnavox TV/VCR combo units have fusses in them. Be aware of the fact that some of these fuses...do NOT look like fuses. THey're small round BLACK parts which have an F on top of them. They are SOLDERED to the PC board.
I'm very familiar with these fuses. BERNIE

Its could be a fuse but highly unlikly. A surge will usually blow out the power supply, like short out the rectifiers,or the standby power supply. Its best to let a trained servicer look at the set. Good Luck
