Question about Philips Magnavox 15MF400T 15 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Magnavox 15 Turn on TV or Monitor. Works fine for about 20 minutes, then shuts off. Turn it back on. Works fine for about 10 minutes. Turn it back on, cycle shortens until it will not turn on. Leave off for about 10 minutes and the cycle repeats. I think something is overheating. Where can I get this fixed.

Magnavox television won't stay on

I know this is going to sound strange but I have something to check. If you have LED lights in your house turn them all off. When they are off turn on your TV and see if your TV stays on. Yes, there could be many problems but this one is cropping up quite a bit. If this does not work then you need to take a look at the power supply board.

My Sharp LC-42SB45U takes 15 min to an hour to turn on. Also, sometimes picture blacks out for 10-15 seconds. Any suggestions? Pat Courson

Have same problem. Not the proper fix though I found that taking the back off and heating it up with a heat gun for 30 seconds to 1 minute and tv works fine till you shut it off over night.Maybe someone can offer a solution with that in mind. Pretty strange

Magnavox 15inch lcd shuts itself off

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

Magnavox 15mf605t/17 15'' LCD HDTV won't turn on

Have similar TV. If it is set to the PC source, it goes into standby when there is no signal, like a regular monitor. Even though the monitor is in standby, you can still press the Source button to change to, say, HD input, and will use the familiar on/off action when pressing Power on the remote.

A little weird, but I've gotten very used to it.

Replace capacitors 2079 and 2080 with 1000 uf, 50 volt caps. They are on the power PCB at the top as you look at the unit from the rear. Barneyluc.

Magnavox lcd tv 15mf050v/17

I put heat-sinks on U14 and the regulator above it and the TV has been running fine all day. Always shut off after 14-30 minutes before. Heatsinks were just 1/2" x 1" metal strips with silicon thermal compound that I taped up to hold in place to temporarily test, as it is obviously a heat related problem.

If you try it and it works for you, post it here.
