Most likely you have defective capacitors in the Power Supply. It is not an expensive repair but something that needs to be done by a svc. co., if your not familiar with Switch Mode Power Supplies (SMPS). I hope this helps and Thank You for using FixYa.. Let me know....

Why doesn't it turn on?


Either because it is not receiving power or something is wrong with the power supply of the set.

I have a 26mf231 Magnavox 26 inch tv. The screen on the tv just flashes over and over. Never powers up. I took out the power board and all the capacitors look good. Thanks in advance


How many times this standby/power light blinks at one time switch ON? Count it carefully. These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. This will make repair easy.

26MF231D 37 Inch. Green Blinking Light - will not power on.


These blinks are fault indications, and are called blinking codes. For Philips brand TVs, we cannot count these blink directly; there is an other way to count these, and should be converted to error codes numbers. If you wish to get more details about how to count these blinks to Philips brand TVs, check the link sited here. After converting these blinks to error codes, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. Check this link. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Selecting the view option, either to Mosaic / Time slide, can be selected by the drop-down list, at the top left of the display window, will make surf easy. You can also do a search, by type in the brand name/model number/IC used, in the search box at the top right of the display window.

If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts
in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors, the TV might need service.

Either your inverter board or video board is bad. If you can see picture while the TV is on then its your inverter board. If not, video board.

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.

Tv damage


It sounds like u have a damaged lcd panel. When your panel gets like this there is not much u can do to fix it. It will be cheaper to get another TV than to order a replacement panel. If your bought the service protection plan you can get it replace no problem but if you didn't. There is not much you can do for it.
