Question about Philips Magnavox 42MF521D/37 Television
Comes on with pix and sound for 3or 4 seconds hear relay click light goes red then shuts down and light goes out
I don't know why but this got my TV on.
I took off the back cover and found the source of the clicking.
Two blue plastic rectangular relays in the exact middle.
When I pushed the power button, I felt the top relay click, and I saw a flash from the bottom one. (they are right next to each other)
I took a hair dryer and placed it over the two relays for about 1 minute and tried the power.
It clicked only 4 times and then came on!!!!!!!!!
For some reason heat helps the relay.
If anyone is a tech and can explain this, please do.
My tv is on and it didn't cost me anything.
I just can't turn it off now!!!
