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.

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.

Black screen, high pitched squeal


A set that has only a 1/2 inch bright line through the middle of the picture, from left to right, has a vertical output IC that is not working correctly. If the 1/2 inch line is in the middle but going up and down, then the horizontal yoke circuit has stopped working. These are problems which should be looked at by a qualified tech, but if the set was purchased 6 months ago then it should still be under the manufacturer's warranty.
