Question about Philips Magnavox 15MF400T 15 in. LCD Television
I have a Magnavox 15MF605T/17B and this morning when I turned it on, (it was previously off) there was no picture. When I press the power button, the LED light turns amber, but then goes solid green. I have tried unplugging the power supply and reconnecting it to the TV, however no such luck. I even checked out my user manual, again no such luck. Any advice would be much appreciated. Also is there a reset button or anything? There is no smell of burning, no damaged pixels or anything like that. Just sorta died on me I guess. Thanks in advance.
Hi SgtHoagie and anyone else:
I ran across this problem too, at 1:30 this morning. At that time I had to get out of bed and try to figure out what the hell happened. It seems that my flat panel TV somehow got switched over to the computer monitor mode. When this happens, the light will turn an amber color. On the bottom of your flat panel you'll see some very small buttons, marked "MENU," "CH" "VOL" and "SOURCE." You'll want to click on the "Source" button and that will switch your flat panel back to the TV mode. Your flat panel TV can also be also used as computer monitor.

It is a common problem that the inverter board goes bad. I had to replace mine wich cost about forty dollars but is simple to install. You can do a search on the power inverter as I am almost positive that is the problem.

I bought one of these second hand, with the same problem. Seems the power supply has to be very stable, no less than 14 volts, no more than 17. Any less, you get sound no picture. Any higher, you get an amber flash and then nothing. It works great at 14.8 volts, so the problem may be in the power supply.

I have exactly the same problem. I received this a gift from a friend that was upgradind toa bigger TV. Worked fine for about a month and the suddendly started loosing the image but the sund is OK. It started doing this intermittenly, more and more frecuently each time and then the picture never returned.
I need help, and for what it seems this is a common problem with this model.
