Magnavox TV Backlight Intermittent

Hi, I have a 26" LCD TV Magnavox model 26mf605w that's had this problem for years, when turning it on most times the backlight won't turn on, I get audio fine.
Cycling it on/off 2 or 3 times will illuminate it eventually, but it's a pain,
anyone have any ideas on a fix?

Hi!

It sounds like your signal tuner is going! The signal tuner is the board your components plug into (cable, dish, dvd, ect...). This can happen, even though your audio is still good with no problems.

Power Supply Issue.


Hello,

Either one will work for you but you should be able to repair your board for much less than that price. The usual problem with TV and monitor power supplies is a failure of the capacitors on the power supply board. Here is a link to an article that shows what capacitors are and how to tell if they have failed - http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/capacitors/ You can get the replacement caps for that board for $12 and its available here: http://www.ccl-la.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=21_77&products_id=199

Samsung LCD TV doesn't power on, just blinks 5 times


After about 5 years the Samsung LCD televisions backlight fails which prevents the TV from coming on and the powerlight just flickers the backlight can be changed but it is often alot easier and cheaper to buy a new Television

Power supply squeal magna.26MF605W/17


You need a higher capcitor as far as voltage if you got a sag, A power supply making noise is not a verry good sign period and this is dcomming from a eletronics engineer! There is something wroung with the circuit. I would sugges changing out the power supply unit due to a possiable problem with the rails.

An earlier post of the smaller model of this with the same problem said to remove the metal cover over the power supply.

I have the 26MF231D and it worked great afterward (even though you can't mount it)

Here is how you remove the cover.
