Question about Philips Magnavox TS3260C 32" TV
The television splits the picture into vertical lines. The lines are closely spaced together, but are still obvious. It's like looking at a photo after its been through the shredder. Otherwise, the TV works fine. About 4 years ago, we had a problem with the resistor( and found the fix on this website)
The TV may have blown out. Time for a new one are you can reset you TV. Hope This Helped

If the TV supports it, you can go into service mode by press ing the following on the remote control:
This will take you into a service menu. It also changes channel as you press the keys, so change to a used channel to get a picture back.
I am not familiar with this model, but the principles should be the same.
Using the remote control to navigate the menu, you are looking for "allignments", and from there "Vertical Amplitude" or V/AMP or VA or similar.
BE CAREFUL when making adjustments, as you can permanently damage the TV if you adjust any critical settings.
When making changes, make a note of the original setting so you can put it back if its not the right option. Also only make changes 1 notch at a time. It will be obvious when you have the correct option, so if nothing is happening after 2 or 3 notches, then put it back. This will minimise risk to the TV.
When you have finished, look for a "Save settings" option, if not just press standby to get out of the service menu.

I had a similar problem. Started out with the video shrinking and expanding. Then just recently it just broke- the TV would power on but I had no audio or video.
Its now fixed
You can find a repair kit here.

SOURCE: Philips 27PT6441 27" TV Problem
Pls note that my experience is with the phillips 27" model27PT6341/07. It may not be the same board as yr model, as I can't remember nor find the service manual anymore. (browse around online for it though)
However, after taking the back off. Look close to the rca jack and svideo connection. Mine is located about an inch from the svideo connection.
Here are some pics that may help you.
The new one is the black and gold one marked 10uf 100v in the pic.
Other users have advised to go as high as 10uf 250v, to avoid having the cap overload again.
PS. I had the lines for about 2 weeks. They got steadily worse then one day my tv looked like it was broadcasting an hourglass. The lines converged in the center and flared outward (no pic).

The foldover is because of a bad capacitor in the vertical circuit. Given the "new" sympotom of a dead set, I would suspect that the vertical IC has failed. This should be a relatively simple repair for a TV shop. If you wish to attempt a repair of this yourself, update this and confirm your model number and I'll post more details and instructions.
