Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV

1 Answer

Magnavox tv manufacturing date october 1989 model # rk4482ak02

Today it worked fine. I unplugged it to sweep around the tv stand, plugged it back in and it won't come on. There are two sensors on the front. The green one says ON the red one says STR. They are both flashing at the same time. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

You might try unplugging the set and let it set for awhile and then plug it in again.
Since the set is so old there may be a loose connection somewhere on the main circuit board. When you moved the set you jarred it and caused the connection to fail.

Tv won't turn on

Have a shop look at it, there is a power relay that either is causing this or something right around it is, seen this about five times over the last ten years in Hitachi sets. I had one customer who had it connected to a wall switch and from time to time had to unpower it several times but once on it was fine.....

MojogiMy GHD1621F2 freeview recorder is frozen on one programme, won't respond to the remote at all (have new batterys) and won't respond to buttons on front. Turning off and on doesn't work...

Hi mojogill,

It sounds like the receiver may be locked up. If the buttons on the front do not work, then try unplugging the receiver for 5 seconds and plug back in then check to see if everything is working fine.

If you need any further assistance with this, feel free to contact me at Thanks!

My LG Tromm front load has the error message 1E what does that mean

LE stands for a Lock Error and is to do with the hall sensor on the motor.
  • Unplug the Machine for 30 minutes, and plug back in. Try washing again.
Here is the replacement Hall Sensor:

Before you pull the motor apart to replace the hall sensor, first of all, check the wiring to the motor.

Unplug the motor, plug it back in and try the machine again.
  1. To replace the sensor, you will need to remove the back panel to access the motor.
  2. Take a 17 mm socket and remove the center bolt holding the rotor assembly.
  3. Pull the rotor straight out and place it off to the side.
  4. Take a 10 mm socket and remove the 6 bolts holding the stator assembly.
  5. On the inside of the stator assembly, you will find the motor sensor connected to a 5 wire connector.
  6. Remove the connector and replace the sensor.
  7. Reinstall everything back together and the unit should work fine.

You could also try this:
  1. Unplug machine
  2. Drain machine
  3. Open machine and rotate barrel clockwise 4 times and counter-clockwise 4 times
  4. Plug in, power on, and run regular cycle and see if the error still comes up.

The TV will not turn on, the only response is the red flashing light on the front for stand by/timer. I noticed the stand by light a couple of days ago and started to experience difficulty turning the TV...

If it flashes four times in a row and then stops, and agin flashes an another four times, and so on, the fault must be in the vertical sweep section in your TV. It is inside the mainboard. To rectify it you should open the TV and should find out the vertical section. Usually an Ic is used for this function. When you open the back cover of the TV you can see the deflection yoke, that is, the coil fitted on the picture tube neck. There are four wires comes to it fom the main board. Amoung them two are thick, and the other two are thin relative to the thicker one said above. The two thicker wires are for horizontal sweep, and thinner two are for vertical sweep.
Follow the two thinner wire said above, and find it frome which point in the mainboard it originates. Somewhere near to that point, you will notice the vertical Ic said above. It will be screwed into a metal heatsink, and is small in size. Usually Sony uses "LA" series ics for their sets. You just note its number. Before unsodering it look for any dry solder points around or on the legs of the Ic itself. A good practice is to resolder all the suspected points by applying a liitle bit solder. You must have some concept of soldering in this time.
Measure the input voltage to that Ic. It will come around 24VDC. If the main voltage is there, take the voltage of its output pin. It should be almost half of the input voltage.
If there voltages are there, and still problem perists, replace the Ic with a similar type and number. Take care and beware. You are working with an electical equipment which have very high voltages inside it while working.

Toshiba TN55X81 Wont turn on but I hear clicking

Pull the three connectors to the yokes on the convergence board. If the set powers up, it's a good chance the STK392-110's need to be replaced. I fixed one today, and it has been running for 6 hours now.
