The most likely failure is the main power supply. You may be able to identify it with the following instructions:
Unplug your set overnight to allow potentially hazardous voltages to discharge, remove the back panel of the set so you can see the guts.
Look for a smaller board with larger parts on it; some cylindrical (capacitors), others block-like and relatively large (chokes and transformers).
You should also see a relationship between the board and the incoming AC.
Check the board for a label or if not present, a stamped-on number.
Call the manufacturer's service center with your TV model number and the number found on that board and inquire about repair/replacement costs; if both are offered, they won't be that much different.
If you must buy a new board, don't dispose of the failed one as there are smaller companies that can repair it for less than the mfr. and then keep it as a spare as this problem will likely arise again.

Unfortunately, the Magnavox name is owned by the Japanese Funai company which is known for poorly designed and not very reliable products.

The issue is the power supply, mine did the same thing. On the power supply board behind the back panel (the one the AC input goes to), look for electrolytic capacitors with puffed-out tops. Replace them. I had 4, one 1000 uF and 3 640uF, and the 640's were the hardest to find. Once all bad capacitors have been replaced, you should be back up and running again.

Hello,

power supply board is dead, u know basic electronics' and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

Hope it work with the solution

Is there a red L-E-D power light beneath the screen? that is the power off light(red). Watch closely to see if that red light momentarily turns green and then immediately red again when you are attempting to turn the tv on, that indicates a bad power supply. There are replacement power supplies on ebay. Be sure that the positive (+) is the center hole of the plug. Most likely all of them are. The output plug is 5.5mm x 2.5mm in size.
