Magnavox CT270MW8A 27in.TV/DVD/VCR blows fuses/won't power on/up

I was donated a Magnavox CT270MW8A 27in.TV/DVD/VCR of the mentioned type and model for a potential fix and keep. I would love to keep this set, as I don't have the ability, or time to get a new DTV or even a converter box with the deadline for conversions approaching FAST. The chassis is made by FUNAI, and they have NOTHING available in the way of a TECH service manual. However, I have had several computers, and limited experience with repairs of electronic, mainly amateur and at-home jobs, with a 100% success rate. Based on the symptoms (i.e. put in 3 new fuses as specified in the board, plug set in and it blows the fuse IMMEDIATELY, without even turning the set on. There were flashes on/at the poles of the plug itself and the fuse inside each time I plugged it in. I suspect the problem is in the power supply section of this unit (either at the transformer [it uses a flyback-type of t-former] the power relay, or the thermistor [whatever that is, please explain] ). I called an on-line store, the only one listing any parts for this unit, and these are the only one available, anywhere that closely might ZERO IN ON THE CULPRIT. Based upon this, or the process of deduction, I am willing to replace these parts, any or all of them myself, if they are 'plug and play' , AS IN A COMPUTER INTERNALS SWAP OUT. It appears to have a 'motherboard' as does a computer, so I see similarities in design and symptoms. My question IS: are these components merely R&Rm (unplug old and replug new), or do they require extensive soldering and therefore extensive testing???. HOW do I ID them on the board??? Do you or can you get a
SERVICE Manual??? If I replace them all, following all safety precautions and protocols OF COURSE, and the problem is still not solved. I will still take it in for service. I have solved these symptoms on two computers, but NEVER a TV set, particularly not a TV/DVD/VCR combo. I realize there are several basic tests for continuity using a MULTIMETER as a preliminary at certain junctures on the board, and power cord and GNDS. Can/would you help me please with options, alternatives, and no-way-outs? I am disabled on a fixed income and had a hard time getting it into my apartment with a bad spine/back and no help, but made it this far The.set is brand-spanking new (2007) with no visible use at all, and probably had a power surge knock out or short the board somewhere is all, and should not be junked. At $100(+) just to get it in the door of the nearest shop, not to mention logistics, your help would be priceless to me right about now Again, PLEASE&THANKS. RG

My Sylvania 32" Tv Model #SRT2232S won't turn


Hello
There is a fuse inside the power supply bard of your sylvania TV. Check whether it has blown out. If bllown out, replace it with same type bothe in size and amperage. If the newly inserted fuse also blow up as soon as you switch on the set, make sure that the power supply section has some short circuit in it, and should be cheked well. OK.

Hooking up DVD/VCR combo to directTV and console RCA


I'd first just hook up the DVD/VCR to the TV and get that working. I'm assuming all you need is the standard cable type connection. This will at least your 4 year old happy. Then you can experiment with the S cable. The S cable will give a cleaner signal from the DVD to the TV. then hook up audio and video cables from the Direct TV to the DVD input. The audio and video will be cleaner using S cables and audio and video cables, but stadard TV cable should get you going. You didn't mention what model DVD player you have. You may have to select the correct inout on the DVD for the Direct TV connection.

DVD input with signal access


IF I understand you correctly, the VCR, Satellite, etc is connected using an RF modulator/coaxial cable wire going into Antenna in

IF this is true, then you have an AV IN port (red, yellow, white) free on the back. Just connect the red, yellow, white from the out of the DVD - you can use 1 or 2 - just remember which one you used; and connect it to the AV IN on the back of the TV.

THEN press ch down on the TV remote until you get to "AV1" - it is below channel 2; double check DVD player to make DVD is playing and voila!

Not able to connect Sharp Model 25h-M60 to Laptop or DVD player


Use a VCR as a A/B switch. Run Cable signal into VCR. Run coax cable out of VCR into television. Connect DVD to VCR (line in) using RCA cables. To use DVD, set VCR channel to L1 or L2 or AUX, depending on VCR type. Set VCR to channel 3 or 4 to watch television. VCR must be powered up to watch DVD.

Magnavox combo vcr dvd


What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill
