These are snapped on tight so if you take a screw driver and go around the lid gently to snap off the seal you should be great.

Bulb


Lay the set face down on a packing blanket or something like that. remove the foot that it stands on and then the back of the monitor. There will be around 12 screws holding it on. Remove it carefully as there are always control boards attached in the molding. Locate the bulb, replace and put back together.

Wind top AE1900 AIO MS-6638. how to replace hard disk


To remove back leg: pull off round end caps where leg connects to back (pressure fit). Then remove black stickers covering screw holes at base of leg. Under stickers are 4 screws - remove and lift off leg assembly.

Remove back cover: remove 7 black screws from back (one hiding under warranty sticker). Lift back from bottom edge (pressure connections on top edge). Back cover will catch on cd/dvd tray door - bend slightly to get around.

Under back cover is metal cover. Remove screws from around edge holding back cover on (note that most screws you will see in pairs - only remove the one holding the metal cover, not the one holding the chassis). Lift off metal cover.

You should now see hdd. One screw holding in position - remove screw, slide out hdd (it will have a metal frame around it). HDD is a 2.5" laptop style.

Swap out hdd from its frame, then re-assemble.

I am taking off the back panel of my magnavox 32mf231d/37 hd tv. I was told by a guru to check the t-con board. Im not sure how to expose this part and could use some help.


Hello,

First, click on the below link in order to identify board. You will also find the part number and other information listed below the image of the T-con board. Also, if you wish to order, you can order direct from the link.

http://stores.orlandopc.net/-strse-3084/MAGNAVOX-T-dsh-CON-BOARD-1320WA01CCAA/Detail.bok

Note the TV stores electric current. So if you just turned off the TV, wait a while (30mins) before opening the back cover.

Now that you know the board that you are looking for, turn off the TV. Get a set of philips screw driver. Look at the back of the TV. Amongst the set of screw driver, look for the one that can fit into the screws holding the TV back cover, then unscrew all the screws.

You will find panels, inside the TV. Unscrew all screws holding the panel in order to get to the T-con board.

Take your time to study how the panels and board in the TV are fitted in, so that you can get them off easily.

Lastly, use a camera to snap the of the TV and each step you take as to removing any screw or disconnecting wires from the panel, so that it will be easy to fit them back to their right position in case you forget.

I hope the above is clear.

Regards.

How do i remove cover from Magnavox flat screen TV model# 32mf231d/37


Remove eight screws on the back of the TV. Three on each side and two in the middle (one on top and one on the bottom). The tricky part are the tabs. I used a plastic putty knife with a lot of bend to it. Once you pop a tab you can slide the knife around until you feel it stick then just wiggle it until you hear a pop. There are tabs all around the edges of the TV. I was able to remove the back panel without any damage. I am taking pictures today and will post them for more clarity.

IR reciever in my Magnavox 15MF400T/37 does not respond to the remote.


You basically have to take the tv apart backward to get to the front. Start with the back panel unscrew all the screws. Then you will see the internals. IR sensor should be botton left side if you looking down on it.

Red blinking light on a Magnavox Plasma TV


Here is the solution. For less that 100$ your Magnavox Plasma TV. Model # 50MF2310/37 will be running like a champ.

Issue:

Magnavox Plasma TV. Model # 50MF2310/37 screen has no picture. There is no sound, TV comes on and then after a few seconds clicks and screen remains blank.

Cause:

On the main power circuit board to Capacitors are prone to failure from over load. The caps are 3300uf 10v 105+c capacitors located to the left of the AC power input.

Service:

Magnavox will refer you to a service center. They will advise $$$ for an inspection. They will also want to charge upwards of 500$ to replace the entire board.

Solution:

1. Unplug your TV
2. Disconnect all connections from your TV
3. With assistance lay your TV on its face on a non-scratching service
4. Remove the back panel screws.
5. Lift back panel off
6. The central board is your main power board.
7. Remove all wire harnesses from the main board.
8. Remove all screws that are holding the main board in place.
9. Lift the main board out and carefully place it into a non electromagnetic pouch.
10. Take the board to a Circuit Board repair shop.
11. Have them replace the the above mentioned Caps.
12. Re-install the board in your TV.

NOTE: Replace the caps with 3300uf 16v 105+ high temp caps(preferrably Japanese caps)

This fix cost me 80$ and my time to search for other who had the same issue. Try searching for Magnavox Plasma TV. Model # 50MF2310/37 bad circuit board or Magnavox Plasma TV bad capacitors or Magnavox Plasma TV bad ciruit board.

Hope this all help, Magnavox is should take ownership for this problem and recall any tv's that have these caps in them. The worst part about this is that teh **** from the repair center that was paid 100$ to check the TV, stripped out the screw holes and damaged the case for the TV.

Portland Laptop Repair was awesome. They repaired the board and it looked like new. Check them out at http://www.laptopportland.com/

TV will not Power Up / Blinking Green Light on Power Button


May be the same problem Magnavox is having with their 27MF231d. I found the fix on this site and it took care of the same problem with my set. Not the easiest thing to do, but it worked. If you do not know how to solder, get some help with this one. If you take it to a Magnavox Authorized repair location, they will just replace the bad capacitor with another bad capacitor of the same type and voltage. The problem is they have a 25w capacitor where a 35w capacitor should be. Mine was bulging, with black tar looking stuff coming out of it. It was obviously bad. Follw the instructions below.

1. Remove all screws around perimeter, one screw at the lower right at (Side A/V), and 2 1”round plastic knob s.
2. Remove back cover
3. At lower left side remove 2 screws for On/Off switch cut tie wrap that holds wire down for free movement.
4. Disconnect wire connector to side A/V at lower right side
5. Disconnect wire connector to right side circuit Board
6. Disconnect wire connector to left side circuit board
7. Remove the 2 mounting brackets upper left and upper right 2 screws each.
8. Remove 3 screws each side of the metal box in the middle
9. Fold back metal tape off bottom and top of metal box
10. 1 wire connector at top of box I left connected
11. Flip metal box over towards top of Tv. Be careful of wire at top thats still connected.
12. On left side in box is power supply board
13. Towards bottom of board you should see the numbers C2081 and C2074
14. Remove the six screws holding down power supply board
15. Flip board down towards bottom of Tv.
16. Unsolder capacitors replace with new 1200uf 35v and 2200uf 35v 105°C radial capacitors
17. Capacitors should be around 1/2” to 5/8” dia. X 1.25 long appox. 2 Wires come out of one end should be .030 dia.
18. Reassemble in reverse order and enjoy
