Question about Televison & Video

Philips Magnavox 50

Telivision is under two years old and would shut off by itself. We had it repaired under warranty and they said it was the mother board. It recently stopped working again, out of warranty of course, yet this time it will not turn back on at all. We had the same repair crew come out, who diagnosed the issue with their boss over a cell phone by placing the reciever over the front of the TV while it was trying to turn on so he could hear the noise. Pretty high tech. There diagnosis, "light engine has died" ? $ 1,813.00 to replace the part plus $ 350.00 for labor plus tax. $600.00 more than I paid for it. I find that questionable. The televison makes a noise when you turn it on simalar to a solinoid or electric motor trying to wind up to start than it shuts of after many trys with no result. The bulb appers to be good. If there is such a thing as a light engine, how does one relpace it an where can I find this product by its techincal name and item number. Thank You!

I am familiar with this model, if 8 years old do not invest any money in it as most parts are no longer available from Philips.

Hi my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
Most companies provide a 1 year warranty and then you are on your own. Philips, Magnavox  honored their warranty. That being said the shops giving you the estimate hopefully checked inside the Tv.
Some repair shops try to do component level repairs , some just replace the whole board. $600 sounds like a whole board repair. Call a few shops and ask if they do component level repair on yout TV.
If it needs Convergence ICs or a Power capacitor the parts cost less than $50 and the shop could profit even if they only charged you $300.
With the economy being slow I'll bet someone would repair it for less.
Only go where they give a free estimate
Tell them your limit and communicate up front so they will be able to try to just fix it for your set price.
If I have helped you with your issue please click accept.
If you have more questions you can still respond until this post expires,
I will reply asap

Sams club warranty problem

The bulbs aren't normally covered after the first year. Some extended warranty companies used to cover the bulbs after that, but now since the economy is bad... a lot of companies are trying to save money by not covering the lamps anymore. And the ones that did are handing the warranties over to other companies. You probably will just have to buy one yourself or you will just be chasing your tail.

Philips 50" DLP Problem

I would need to know the model number of the DLP to offer any worthwhile advice. Is the set still under warranty from phillips? If so I would get warranty involved before it runs out DLPs are expensive to repair.
