Question about Philips Magnavox 52MF437S/37 52 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

Not Workin' This heap began by "popping" and passing a dark "cloud" over the screen from right to left. Then it failed completely. The voltages all appear to be within the ballpark (maybe a fraction of a volt low). I applied power to check the voltages, LED 4 (blue) flashes at approx 0.5Hz. LED 3 (red) is on constantly. Can anyone advise as to this code? I tried a paid service a long time ago and received advice that didn't work. I'm just having another go before I chuck the thing out.

Multiple wires of the same color in factory stereo, 95 lesabre


Brian, first of all, make sure you have a multimeter and let's agree on one thing: any wire that has a switched voltage or a voltage to control antenna or motor has to be DC type of voltage, right? The other ones for the speakers are AC voltages as in music, right? Therefore, I would go with a meter between the wire and ground and measure on the DC scale and turn the radio on. Keep an eye on the meter and you will see that if the voltage appears, it is a DC voltage and it will answer your question. Hope it helps.

hi

try rebooting the system (i think its F8, to get to SAFEMODE) . in DESKTOP , right click and go to PROPERTIES, go to SETTINGS, go SCREEN RESOLUTION and take the arrow to the left ; set to 640x800 and and take the color setting to 256 drop down . hopefully this works after rebooting the system. if it doesnt, it may sound like the inverter card may be bad (PC bourd that connectes to the screen : this requires a service technician)

good luck !

I have a samsung 1080 full hd 38" flat screen tv,


I think the backlight is failing, you will need to have it replaced. It is also possible that the backlight inverter (power supply) may be faulty but that usually shows up a fault. I think it unlikely that the screen itself has failed unless it has been subjected to pressure damage.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Having problems with Dark Cloud 2.


Hello,

If your PS2 is horizontal, i suggest you put it in vertical position, if yet, it is not playing your dark cloud 2, it means your PS2 could be an old version that can not read the dark cloud 2 game because it is possible that the dark cloud 2 has come with a higher version that your PS2 could not read.

You might need to upgrade your PS2 to an higher version that will be able to read all the new version of the game.

Take care.

My screen went dark suddenly, when I try to restart my computer the screen is tinted red before going dark again. The screen is not completely black as there is letter visible underneath.


From what you are describing, it sounds like the inverter board is failing. This board sits under the LCD screen and is responsible for taking the DC voltage from the battery and AC adapter and converting that voltage to high voltage AC power for the backlight lamp that sits inside the lcd screen. Without that high voltage the screen goes dark. Most inverters do not fail right away, there are voltage fall offs etc. Inverters are approx. 15-20 bucks on ebay, for most laptops, they can be changed out simply by removing the bezel around the screen, unplugging the two connectors on the inverter and changing it out. In most cases except Dell, the inverter is just sitting in there and is not held in by screws.

Curved blue lines on screen.


You have a completely different problem. The screen voltage for the blue picture tube is slightly too high on your set. This will put fine lines in the background of the picture, called retrace lines. This is very common and easy to correct. Remove the front speaker cover and the access panel behind it. Look inside and you will see a black box with six controls, each control having a little white glue on it. This is the Focus/Screen block. Three controls are labeled Focus and three are labeled Screen. The screen control in the center is for green but I am not sure if the screen control on the left or right is for blue for your model. With the TV on, set it to VIDEO 1 but do not connect anything to the VIDEO 1 jacks. This will produce a pure dark picture, showing any faint lines in the background. Choose one of the screen controls and increase (turn clockwise) it slightly. If the blue lines do not get brighter it means you are turning the red screen control, so put it back where it was and choose the other screen control. When you find the blue screen control, decrease (turn counter-clockwise) it until just when the blue lines are gone. If you want you can check that the red and green screen controls are set to just below the point where their faint lines are visible. When done, replace the panels and your picture will be back to perfect.
