I see that you are quite talented when it comes to fixing televisions. Would you mind letting me know what the steps are to fix this TV? It's the same problem that I see a lot of people having, the top few inches of the TV have "rolled over". Thanks much in advance.

Not likely to be a do it yourself repair. From the model number it is a 20 inch and if the power supply board is bad may not be economical to fix not to mention quite often on the smaller sets parts do not exist.

Hi Charles, the problem will be regulator in power supply,try changing ic located right in front of chasis when you open back of tv,it has 4 legs on each side it's located on the fly back side,thanks,and let me know.
glad it was helpful! I had researched quite a bit before I started and realized there was a real lack of detailed info for the wdx2x25 models so I figured I would take some photos and post while I was at it.
If fixing the PWR board doesn't do the trick, getting the other two out is not as bad as you might think - just tedius. The V26 Chassis Replacment manual (different than the main service manual) has reasonablely detailed step by step instructions to disassemble. Let me know if you need it and I can email.
I had the same issue. The screen would shrink and then expand over and over. After thrity minutes it would correct itself. After a few months of doing this it just broke - no sound and no videe but the power light was still on.
I searched these forums but did not find clear instructions or kits on how to fix it. I gave up and called in a repair tech. He fixed my TV in less than 30 minutes.
To help others I documented the fix and created a repair kit and step by step quide on how to fix the problem. You can find it here. http://www.magnavoxhelp.com
I don't know about this particular philips chassis but I've got a phillips tp3281 with a #32d700-7570 chassis with the same problem: apparently common with philips sets. I opened mine up and discovered the burnt capacitor that others have reported, replaced this as recommended with a higher rated one. In many cases this is apparently ALL that is required to fix the prblm (a 50 cent part)unless other components are also damaged which appears to be the case with mine. This repair is about $150 here locally at a shop which I didn't want to put into a relatively old set. Have you opened up your set yet? Do a Google search on your set and you might find that others have had the same problem and a simple fix could be possible. Also you could check the following site as they seem to be quite savvy and responsive with TV repair questions: http://www.tv-forums.com; Hope that helps!
