You need to change capacitors 2079 and 2080 with 1000 uf, 50 volt caps. The caps are on the power board at the top as you view the unit from the rear. the other fella said....if you see any capacitors that are bulged out on top replace them with the same value micro-farads ( uf ) but a higher voltage rating. barneyluc

Replace the 2200mf 16volt caps on the power supply , they are located on the power board mounted inside the shield (can) be careful of the wires running to the rear jack when removing the back. remove the screws then pop the edge loose , peek inside and disconnect wires to back, remove shield cover , then power board and flip it over to see if any capacitors are swollen replace as needed (soldered in) they must go in + and - facing as they were.

If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts

Check your power supply cables Your power supply cables may not be fully secured. Let's unplug and reconnect your power supply
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the back of your console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and the power supply unit.
    Reconnect the power cord to the console. Then plug the power cord back into the wall outlet and the power supply unit
  2. Make sure that all three connections are firmly secured.
  3. Turn your console back on.

Check the light on the power supply. If this solution worked, your power supply light will be green

Magnavox Philips 26MF231D 26 in. LCD Television wont turn on. The green power light is on but unit does not work; it won't power on or off using the power button, and screen remains black.

Most likely you have defective capacitors in the Power Supply. It is not an expensive repair but something that needs to be done by a svc. co., if your not familiar with Switch Mode Power Supplies (SMPS). I hope this helps and Thank You for using FixYa.. Let me know....

An earlier post of the smaller model of this with the same problem said to remove the metal cover over the power supply.

I have the 26MF231D and it worked great afterward (even though you can't mount it)

Here is how you remove the cover.
