Screen gone out

I have a philips magnavox. I've had it for about 6 years. The screen recwently went black. I have access to sound it's just the screen. it's completely black. The channel numbers don't even show up and when I switch imput I can here the games or dvd's on but no picture. This first happened a vouple of weeks ago But I tried rectifying it by hitting the side of tv. This brought the screen back. I didn't have to tdo that for a while and then I had to do it every time I turned the tv on and now hitting it doesnt even work. What should I do?

    I don't know what a soldering iron is. Should I try and take the tv apart to look fo a soldering iron? And to see if there is any loose contacts? I've been told that a lot of electricity still flows threw the tv even when its unplugged so I wasnt sure f I needed to take it to a professional. I would prefer one come to my home.

You could have a loose connection in the Horizontal section or something close to the flyback transformer. If you have a soldering iron and look for loose contacts . Then hopefully you won't have to hit it anymore. Good luck

    What you should do is call around to a few service centers and find what they charge for a service call . Some can be expensive . If you could take it to your local shop it would be cheaper on your estimate should you decide not to have it fixed . Some service centers are charging $50 to $100 just to drive to your house . A soldering iron is a tool used for repairing the set . Hopefully it won't be expensive to get repaired . Good luck

Screen went black, then small pop noise followed by power going out...power will flash on for a sec. when power button is pushed, but the screen is black and goes off immediatly?

Sounds like your transformer has run out. I had the same problem couple of years ago. It can happen either due to voltage fluctuations or lightning or something similar. All you have to do is replace that cheap and small equipment. Always go for the best one available in the market. Else the new one too can go out soon.

No setting or troubleshooting can fix this. TV needs service. Sounds like a control board or buffer board went out.
