    For the past decade or so, televisions were designed with a "kill circuit" that'll shut down the tv when particular parts in the set lose value.

    This particular Philips tv is a nightmare to all tv techs' out there...mainly because it is designed with 5 kill circuits....

Phillips Magnavox Model 20MT1331/17: It shuts off

The poster, Jim K, is probably in possession of at least a layout of the power supply and the 'location' is likely derived from a grid used to physically find parts on a board.
220 uF is a common value for an electrolytic capacitor and the 200V is the rated sustained DC voltage it can tolerate. 
The 130 volts could be caused by a capacitor that is failing and not smoothing the rectified voltage as it should.
In other words, you kind of need a tech.

Magnavox 15inch lcd shuts itself off

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

Hi, we have a phillips tv. it is about 6 orso years old. within the last 6 months, it has starting going off. you turn it on and it may play 5 or 10 or even 30 or more minutes but it keeps going off. the...

I wouldnt use that service man. If your set is shutting down its most likely do to the shutdown circuitry being triggerd by a defective component. I would recomend contacting someone skilled with phillips model televisions, most sets that play and then shutdown usually have a problem with a single component that is triggering shutdown, a skilled repair man will test the various voltages to determine the cause of the shutdown.
