A line across the screen means a loss of vertical sweep. This could be as simple as an IC or as difficult as a deflection yoke. These are not do it yourself repairs.

Philips Magnavox 32MT3305 keeps shutting off with relay clicking. The green power light stays on but the picture and sound go out right after the orange status bar goes away. If the channel up or down...

the relay is the safety protective device..sometimes a defective component or something. maybe an overloaded power supply might caused this before any thing could gets worst..the relay will shut the unit..

I believe from your description that the vertical circuit has failed. either the IC or a capacitor. Sorry, but being only a 13" set I don`t recommend you repair it. unless you have a friend that would do it for you for the cost of the parts only.

Tv has an advertisement that wont go off

Press the up and down volume buttons on the TV at the same time. This will turn off demo mode.

White Screen w/ White Lines, Sound On, Turns off after 2 or 3 secs.

Hi If you mean thin white lines, this is is an indication of a problem in the Horizontal Drive ckt. most likely the Damper Diode has opened or shorted, this would cause the visual symptom and then the set would shut down, unfortunately this is a problem best left to a qualified technician to repair, hope this helps.

Tv was on and shut off, sparks in back when replug in

The fact that you have smoke coming from the back is not a good sign if the quality of the picture was good before it failed its worth if you put in 150 to 200.Stay away from it and call a qualified technician for an estimate then you'll know.Good luck.
