Question about Philips Televison & Video
I have a Magnavox 25tsc6 0101 and the picture is ''folded'' on the top and bottom making it hard to watch. Is there anything I can check or repair to fix this at a reasonable cost?
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Your described problem indicates a problem in the vertical section. The folding normally is caused by a faulty boost capacitor. Faulty capacitors are easily identified by bulging top (normally flat), blistered/split casing, brownish paper within the immediate surrounding, rubber bottom partially out and/or powdery residue on one of the pins. This is relatively an easy/quick repair and would normally be inexpensive. There are however instances where the vertical IC is at fault or some other minor components. What would be more challenging would be identifying which to replace and/or getting access to the solder points.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
