Question about Philips Magnavox 42MF521D/37 Television

1 Answer

Screen seems to stay on after powering off...

Is the Standby Mode when the screen stays kind of lit after the power is shut off...seems like a waste of energy if so..If not, I may have a fire hazard on my hands.  Any comments?

Re: Screen seems to stay on after powering off...

Stand by should be when the power button turns red. There is also an off mode but it requires you to use the button on the front of the tv. Only problem with this is the remote doesn't work when the tv is in the off mode.

Funai TV will not stay on. It turns on for 1 second and then turns off. Red standby light blinks on and of, what can I do?

Either the power driver board is faulty, or it has a humidity sensor in it, which turns it off. Move it to a very dry place for a few days, then try it again and it might work.

Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Vizio Model SV320SVT powers on, after Vizio splash screen it goes blank. Power stays on, but no backlight on screen.

Yes its very repairable as long as the logo stays white you can assume the main boards good. I would recomend contacting the people at by hitting the contact us button from their website. They will be able to assist you in finding out whats happening with the set for free. They have most parts available as well.

Insignia tv will not powerup

Nothing at all? Does the screen seem to go from dark black to a lighter shade of black?

If the screen appears to stay on the darker shade of black then it is broken, and needs to be sent for repair. ( ie the screen isnt powering on when the tv is and there is nothing you can do without opening it.

You might try unplugging all cables and leaving it off with no power for a day This is in effect performing a factory reset.

and this may sound stupid and patronizing but is the TV being taken out of standby mode and actually switched on?
