Magnavox 32" tv ms3252s431 shutting off


i have a 32" magnovox tv (chasis L01-1uac-7638) that has broklen down 3 times in 18 months. the tv is only 4 years old. the symptoms are always the same: first the volume bar will appear and sometimes lower the volume by itself. then the main tv menu will appear on its own and randomly move thru the menu. the 3rd stage is it will do all of this, then shut itself off. the final is all of the above, then shut off completely and won't power up, with a faint chirping sound in the back until unplugged. someone mentioned replacing the C2455 resistor, but i don't know much about electronics. can you offer any advice or parts to change? it's been repaired twice already at a large cost both times. thanks.

Usually, the L01-1 chassis most common problem = weak
capacitors, such as C2455.Could be C2425......47mf/25v...
Check all caps around horiz drive xformer = an ESR meter
helps on this one + a skilled, experienced technician......T.

On many of these (I am not familiar with this exact one) you push the volume up and down buttons on the set (not the remote) at the same time and hold them for a second or two. Try this. Philips has a customer help line that can help you as well, but expect a long wait and much irritation.

TV keeps shutting off

Since the set needs to be unplugged and plugged back in, the requlator circuit in the power supply may have a problem. The set is over a decade old and other things are going to start going wrong with it. Capacitors will dry up, solder joints will begin to crack and the picture tube will begin to get weaker. My suggestion is to invest in a new set, with a newer technology. Hope this helps.

Television takes 6-8 times to start up or turn on

Sounds like you may have cold solder connections. Call a pro to assist in this repair. Good Luck
