I ouldn't find any good news on the web about this,
so i did a bit of research and discovered that it wouldn't cost me much more than the cost of repair if I went to Best Buy and bought a new HD-TV.
Wow ! The prices have really come down !
Now I'm glad that it malfunctioned !
This television is having problem with intermittent tuner reception.The tuner is the signal processor for the television. The video section is intermittent. This could be a simple matter of cold solder joints that can occur over time due to heat expansion and contraction.This causes the metal in solder to expand and then when the television cools down, the metal that is expanded cannot contract.The solder joints then becomes intermittent. All televisions suffer from this problem.Since you are able to still able to receive the video signal, there appears to be no component damage. You will need to take this television in to a service center and have them rework the solder on all the areas around the tuner section of the television and any other areas that may be susceptible to the problem due to overheating.You can call Magnavox customer support at this telephone number 1-800-705-2000 and ask them for the location of a service center in your area. Or take it in to a local repair center and have them test and service the television for you. You can also try taking it to a school where they are teaching electronic repair and ask them if they will work on the television for you.They will usually do the work for a cost of parts and a small labor charge. Call them first to make sure they will help you and tell you how you can get the television serviced This may not be the only problem you are having with the television. That is why you need to have it tested first. I hope this information help you with your problem.
You have a picture when you're watching a DVD, but none when you're watching regular cable? Does the audio appear to be okay?? Are you sure you've switched the inputs on the TV back to main???
Let me know..
first off how good are you with a solder iron ?
beside the obvious rf connector problem these set's had
problems with bad solder connections within the tuner itself.
google( sam goldwasser repair faq) for the solder template.
