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.

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.

I have a SONY Flat Screen TV 3LCD and the screen went black.

open the heatch on the lower right hand side and flick the lever and pull the bulb housing out look at the internals of the bulb to see if it has failed out it will have some little particles floating around inside or a dark burnt spot of completly broken coil if you have any of that get a new bulb from ebey ok they are as easy the change as to remove and inspect but be careful they contain mercury and are toxic so handle with care and good luck ok

I have a gv47l fhdtv10a lcd. it made a loud pop and went blank. i replaced the fuse on the power board. the tv will power on but the screen stays black and the tv will not power off unless you unplug it....

Something on the power supply board has failed. One or several of the voltages is bad and you don't have full control, no off, no screen voltage, etc. Unless you can troubleshoot switching power supplies, its best left to a repair shop.

Last night the screen started going dark, then went out, black

If still under warranty, I would suggest going that way as this is a bad matrix driver....

Big white blur, cloud like, Center of LCD TV

I have seen similar effects like this & it is usually due to a flaw in the screen. A replacement screen is the only cure.

Several smokey lines cross the screen

I probably had the same problem. The cause is a bad main board ($276+-), digital board ($225+-) or analog ($102+-) board. Labor should be about $130. The actual lcd should be fine.
JVC will only issue a recall if 1500+ complaints on a model.

Try firmly rubbing them out with a non-lint cloth.
