Question about Televison & Video

When pushing the power button the tv turns right back off

Have a 1997 phillips magnavox tv that has worked fine til 2 days ago and then i line went through the middle of the screen only allowing to see lower half of the tv. After a couple minutes the rest of the screen would be visible also. This happened 3 times and now when trying to turn the tv on it automatically shuts off. Is there any solution besides buying a new one?

Hi barbara70,

Based on your post/description, it would appear that your TV is developing a fault in the vertical section. Chances are that it is just a capacitor normally located pretty near the Vertical IC. Physically, it would be bigger than the other capacitors within the same area. It is relatively a simple and low cost repair job.

Should you venture a DIY, pls be reminded of safety precautions when working with electrical devices. Of course this would also require a bit of familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, possible use of a DVM and definitely a soldering iron. Access to a service manual or at least a schematic diagram with voltage measurements would make the diagnosis a lot easier but not a necessity. Should you be uncomfortable going this route, perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified TV professional or at least somebody familiar with soldering works.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi. i believe this to be either of these three problems.
1. Power: it could be that there is a problem with the power electronic element(s). the solution is to go see an engineer.
2. Screen: if the television uses LCD display, it could be a problem with the liquid in it. Solution is to see an engineer.
3. Sleep mode: the TV could be in sleep mode which makes the screen go blank until removed from sleep mode. Solution is to read the TV's users manual to see how to wake a sleeping TV. Get back.

TV turns on then off no picture


this is very common. it is the power supply going bad. it should run at 130 volts dc. but it is now running much lower that this. just enought for the tv to come on. but not enough to power all the circuits right.

My RCA HDTV D52W23 Will not Turn On!!


Trying installing a new power supply. This is the main problem with tv's with the issue. But if you just bought it I would try to get my money back from where I bought it from. Installing a power supply for a tv is not that hard at all.

No power Mitsubishi Big Screen


Sounds like the power supply went bad. Repeated on/off pushing of the buttons causes the set to go into shut down. If a part is marginal this is when it'll go bad. Usually a bad power supply part and will need professional repair. Please rate!

This is an old posting, but will reply anyways.
I am not sure if this is the same problem that I had , but sounds similar.
I found that there were power surges, or lack of power. I could see my power bar blinking at the time this happened.
So after trying everything under the sun, I plugged it into another outlet with the power bar, and have never had a problem since. It seemed that for some reason I had surges in that line, and have no idea why.
Not sure if this is what is happening to you, but maybe might be of some help to someone else.
Thanks.
Bob.

Philips universal remote codes


For the majority of phillips/magnavox universal remotes: Hold code search button down till red light satys on. Press the tv button and the red light should blink and stay lit. With the tv on, push the power button repeatedly until the tv turns off.(dont push the power button again after the tv turns off or it will go to the next code). Push the mute button to save the setting.
