Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV
I work for a small electrical company that had a job with a department store. One of the electricians was in a hurry and did not label his hot and neutral wires for a large area in the electronics section of the store. Someone else connected the wires to the panel which was three phase. Long story short the hot AND the neutral wire feeding the receptacles for a row of LCD TVs ended up both being hot thus sending 208 volts to them. They all blew up. Our company fired the electrician and bought the TVs. They have been sitting in our storage for almost a year. My question to you is- can they be fixed. I wondered if maybe there is a fusable link inside the TVs designed for power surges that took the damage and can be replaced. Are these TVs fit for the garbage can or is there an easy way to fix them? Thank you for your time. Ethan.
Yes,they can be fix.The problems u discribing to me,like just a big power surge to all the tvs at once.Now just take one by one test it out what wrong with it each one individual tv and fix it that all.Like changing individual componnets or boards parts that all.

There are fuses always inside TVs. The main filters (capacitors) are probably damaged and the regulators are probably blown. Chances are the rest of the set is OK. Sudden bursts like that usually kill the fuses very fast and the regulator takes the brunt of the load. With a multimeter, you could probably check regulators for shorts and replace fuses.
