Power light blinking

The power light is blinking on my old Magnavox TP2781C TV. Nothing works. No picture, sound, anything. Owners manual doesn't mention this situation. Is it shot?

Re: Power light blinking

Most likely it's not something you can fix yourself. Here are some information and codes for a different Magnavox TV; it's not unlikely that the codes are the same:

We have an older Phillips Magnavox tv. The tv will turn on & we will see the picture for a short time but then the screen turns grey. We still have sound, just no picture. Also, the green power light...

Hello, the grey screen could be due to a missing 220Volt source which feeds the color (RBG cathodes)inside the CRT(picture tube). When this happens the beam current inside the CRT goes high in a matter of second, thus triggering the beam current protection circuit(blinking green light)shutting down the TV. Repairing the secondary voltage source is necessary to get the TV working normal, a good technician should be able to repair it for between 80 to 100 dollars parts included, except a picture tube, which could be also the cause of the problem(K-A shorts).

Did you get your set fixed or did you replace it? My same set did the same thing. Turned it off for 2-3hrs after watching it and when I tried to power it up- nothing but the sound it would normally make just before the major power up, sort of a relay click sound. No picture or sound but the red light blinks non-stop.

Power button Flashes

For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.

No picture or sound

Classic power supply or horizontal output problem. Take it to a servicer.

Sony KV-27S42 not on but timer flashes

The blinking light means almost 100% that the high voltage circuit has failed. Probably need a new horizontal output transistor and flyback. Perhaps an associated resistor or diode. If you have the expertise go for it, otherwise take it to a professional. In any case be extremely careful and safe. Good luck.
