Philips Magnavox 17MD255/17 LCD TV had AC voltage applied.

I have a Philips Magnavox 17MD255/17 LCD TV. The power adapter for the unit was defective. I tried to created my own power supply and did not realize I was feeding AC voltage into the TV as opposed to the DC voltage suppled by the correct power supply. The TV will not turn on now. Is this somehting that can be repaired or is it beyond help?

It seems your "power regulator" a small unit inside tv device has damaged due to wrong power supply. In this case usually the power capacitor burns and few other electronic components like triodes. Get the help of a electronic chip technician to replace the damaged components.

Hope it works.

My philips lcd tv does not turn on, it just blinks for 5 times and then nothing... what could be the problem?


good day if the tv won't power up then just only a blinking light from the indicator, you will need to check the power supply first. you can apply the visual checking usually bulging capacitors at the secondary filter capacitor of the power supply they are leak which need replacement. sample of bulged capacitor en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague . you can find replacement at www.digikey.com. now after you replaced defective capacitors turn on the tv unit then check all the out put voltage if normal the 5v stand by. 5v switched, 12v, and 24v for inverter ballast now if those voltage are stable i'm pretty sure your tv unit will working fine.

Hi, your best bet is to get a LCD/laptop universal adapter from ebay like this one: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Universal-AC-Laptop-Notebook-LCD-Monitor-Adapter-NEW_W0QQitemZ250172562395QQihZ015QQcategoryZ64471QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

 Do a search for the one that is cheapest and nearest to you. These come with lots of different heads and voltage is variable so you can just adjust it to you needs.
Hope this helps. Si :)

It could be the AC adapter. That is easy enough to check with a DMM. Turn on the meter, set to volts dc, push red probe into the hole in the output power jack and touch the black probe to the outside of the same jack. Have someone plug the AC cord into a good outlet(one you know has power). If the adapter is working you should see 12 vdc displayed on the meter. There still could be a problem as I recently found an adapter which displayed the correct voltage with no load but little or no voltage with a load. Testing with a load is a problem if you are not familiar with the procedure. Odds are if you have 12 vdc the adapter is fine and you have a short somewhere in the monitor. If you are handy with tools and feel confident, remove the back of the unit and check the fuses in the power supply. If they check OK you probably can't do much more. Unless you are an electronic tech you will need to take the unit to a shop for repair by a qualified tech. Good luck.
