Re: Philips Magnavox ts3258c101:service manual for free...

I couldn't tell you where to find a free service manuel as it seems these days every ones looking for a buck for what they offer, but as for fixing it it is possible that the switching board ( the board that houses all the function switches ) is cracked. You can remove the board by removing the 1/4 inch screws and find the cracked section by visually inspecting it. With a soldering iron , solder and some bear wire, you can patch the broken board. After repairing the broken connections, apply some epoxy glue on the back of the board where the crack was and reinstall the board after the glue drys. It should work fine after the minor repair. Good Luck

My tv turns of and on when i push the button

Sounds to me like there is a liquid substance or food which may slightly dried to a gel which is shorting out the channels inside of the remote on the circuit board. DO Not Get it wet or soaked, but you can take it apart and clean it up, this may solve the problem.

Need owners manual for Magnavox 55" Projection TV 55P8288A, pleas

This manual does not seem to be available anywhere. I looked for it on the Magnavox website and it was not available. You can call the magnavox customer support at this telephone number. 1-800-705-2000. Give them the model number of you television and ask them for their help getting a copy of the owners manual. I also check for it on a google search. The search turn up no source either. So you best bet is to try and find another person who has the same model television and ask them to make a copy for you. You can do this on this website by looking up the people who have asked for help with the same model television and leaving them a message that you need a copy of the owners manual.You can also go to other help websites and ask for their help in getting a copy of the owners manual. I hope this information helps you with your problem

Tv turns on then turns off

A security system turns off the TV to protect the other components, keep pushing the power button is not a good idea.
The TV might have a diagnosis code. Watch the stand by light, if it's blinking in cycles.
\It looks to me that the power to the red or green or both bulb is troubled. It might be a simple card or the complete tube support. The power supply for those tubes might be also damage.
I don’t think it will be cheap to fix it. If you are a Techie try to download the service manual and open it, if not it might be very complicated to it yourself…

I wish I could help you but you will more than likely have to take your set to an authorized service center. Philips doesn't like to send service manuals to anyone except their service centers. Stargazer

Philips Magnavox 32"

Sounds like the PLL IC or the tuner maybe going bad??. You didnt say that by NO picture NO sound, is there any light on the screen at all?? You said when you change channels it comes back alive for a bit.? This is the indication that its a tuner or related circuit problem . Now first off +these sets do not have any user serviceable parts inside them as they are all solid state and soldered in and then you also have to deal with the HI Voltage saftey issues. This is not a reapir You should attempt to do on your own as a pro should assist you in this repair. Good Luck
