Question about Philips 17MD255V Combo

Screen won't come on

I use my magnavox 17md255v as a pc monitor. I went to switch from pc to tv, and my screen went blank. I turned it off and back on, and I only got a quick glimpse of the screen and then it went blank again. I checked all the cables and connections and they were all good. I disconnected the magnavox from my pc connections and tried playing by itself in a different room as a regular television and the screen wouldn't turn on - nothing. I currently have a back up monitor for my PC until I figure out what's wrong with the magnavox. Could it be just a simple bulb inside?

Im having the same problem. It used to work but the sound would come from my Toshiba laptop. For some reason, now the AVOL 32in Multisystem TV will not recognize HDMI input. I used to use it for my xbox 360 as well and now the TV does not recognize that either. Is it possibly a switchboard or something similar wrong with the TV?

What connection do I need to use Magnavox 17" Model 17MD255V/17]TV/DVD as a monitor on a computer? Error message says "No PC Signal" Monitor cord is on. Power cord is on. What's missing? thx


You need to let the Magnavox know what signal it should be displaying. Look for a "Source" button on the remote or menu and choose PC or whichever slot you are hooked up, say HDMI.

HP LP3065 monitor turns off and won't turn back on; is this a Windows problem


It doesnt sound like a windows problem. A simple test for this is to unplug the vga or hdmi cable from the monitor then turn it on if it has power it should say no signal. Also try either another power cable to the monitor or change the fuse. Hope this helps.

I have a Magnavox 15' HDTV monitor and it won't turn on, when I push the on switch on it turns green and a split second later it turns yellow. whats wrong?


This is typical when there is no communication with video card. Test on another PC. Re-seat video card on PC. Use VGA cable instead of HDMI or DVI. Make sure monitor is correct mode. Again VGA, DVI, or HDMI, depending on cable used.

The screen stays blank when I switch the laptop on. Is it something to do with the snooze facility ?


Did you have it plugged into an external monitor or TV? If so you need to toggle it back to using the notebook's monitor. If not, you may have a bad display or a backlight that went out.

Hi, I have a Magnavox 17MD255V/17 combo dvd-tv. Everything works fine except that the AC adaptor has a high-pitched whistle that continues while the tv is on. I tried unplugging from the the tv itself and...


TAKE THE AC ADAPTER APART. LOOK AT WHERE THE MANUFACTURER PUT HIS GLUE AND REDO IT CLEAR NIAL POLISH WORKS BETTER IT FLOWS UNDER THE PARTS BETTER. YOU CAN PLUG IT ALL IN WHEN ITS APART BUT MAKE SURE NOTHING CAN SHORT OUT. THIS WAY YOU CAN PINPOINT WHERE THE NOISE IS COMING FROM. OTHERWISE GLUE THE TRANSFORMER AND ANY SMALL FERRITE BEADS THESE SWITCHED MODE POWER SUPPLIES OPERATE AT HIGH FREQUENCIES AND LOOS PARTS CAN VIBRATE CAUSING THIS NOISE.

Tv went off and won' come back on.


Most likely you will have to replace the power supply. It is a very common problem especially in newer electronics. You can test it with voltmeter or multi-tester. They tend to get worn capacitor inside the power supply due to cheaper parts
