Question about Philips Magnavox 15MF400T 15 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Dropped Magnavox TV

I got a TV from a friend who's son had dropped it. The TV turns on and the sound is fine. The picture comes up with about 1/4" wide stripes of red green and blue in a wavy pattern over the picture. You can see the picture OK but have the bands of color over it. When it would normally have white text (say menus) they show up as rainbow colores letters. Is there something simple to fix it or is there some particular damage I should be looking for that would reflect these symtoms. I'm a mechanical engineer who likes to tinker and should be able to track down any components you can describe to me. i have a 15'' LCD tv and after several minutes it automatically turn itself off. I tried the timmer but it does not seem to be fix the problem. Any ideas? thanks

Most likely the LCD panel itself had damaged.

Green light is on my sons Ds but I haven picture r sound he dropped it


It sounds like something broke on the inside when your son dropped the DS. If you have a warranty, see if it will cover the damage, otherwise you will need to purchase a new one.

Will not come on it only a clicking sound from part no. 0mron 0584H3


I had the same problem with my tv, same make and model. I first continuously turn on and off my tv manually until I could get some kind of picture. This procedure took maybe five minutes. I was able to get a fine picture and sound, as if it was brand new! Other things to keep in mind, try to eliminate dust build up as much as possible.. Hope this helps out...

My optio was dropped with the lens going down first. now my camera makes noises & the screen is black. how do i go about fixing it?


looks like the gears or retracting mechanics are damaged.

its problably not worth to take it in, to get it fixed (depends on the camera). but most likely sound like the gears are busted.

you be paying for repairs that costing waaay more than the camera.

Best thing is to open it up and see what it is that's making the sound inside. Check no connectors have come partially off or out of their sockets, also.

The shadow mask in the picture tube has shifted from being dropped. The only way to fix the set is to replace the picture tube, which would cost more than buying a new set.

Son dropped TV


Chances are is that the actual screen inside is broke, so that the laser cannot display the correct colors in the right spots. First talk to a TV repair guy, but he will probably just say to buy a new tv.
