Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV

2 Answers

TV turns off/on by itself

We just picked up this free Magnavox 27" TV model # 27MS343S. The TV turns off/on by itself. It will not stay on and it won't stay off. You have to literally unplug the power cord to keep it off. We just want to know if it is an 'easy fix'. By 'easy' I mean inexpensive and I don't have to receive a 4 year college education to replace a part. Please, if someone can help us, we would really appreciate it. Of course, if it means the TV is shot or too expensive to fix, we will toss it. Thank you!

Re: TV turns off/on by itself

Magnavox needs to replace the TV because Wal-Mart who sold the TV on a big sale will not replace. This seems to be a scam.

Re: TV turns off/on by itself

Thats why you got this TV for free I'm afraid. Your problem will cost more then the set is worth to have it repaired. Unless you understand how the differant circuits work, and know how to read a schematic, follow the circuit flow, and use a multimeter, this will not be an easy fix for you to do. There are components in the power supply that need to be replaced. Good Luck

Magnavox old tv wont come on and stay on

I have a similar problem. I recently got a comcast dvr cable box, and after receiving the second box, my tv started going off and coming on all by itself. It may have something to do with the cable. For me, I think the cable box blew, or shorted something in the tv.

Magnavox 19" TV shuts itself off.....won't stay on

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps
