Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV

1 Answer

Capasitor Thanks for your help. We are having trouble finding the capasitors needed though. My father in law says they have to be AC and Radioshack only has DC. I've looked online for them and my father in law is going to check out what I found tomorrow, but none say if they are AC or DC. Do you know of a good place online to order them? Thanks again.

Electrolitic capacitors can be used in dc and ac circuits as long as you know how to use them. basicly a cap is a fast charging and discharging battery. it is designed to hold charges steady in a cicuit. they have a positive side and a negitive side. donot reverse the polls or you will have an exploding cap. the cicuit that these caps are in is a dc cicuit (24 volts to the panel).
the caps again are 2200uF 35 volt with a temprature rating of 105 degrees C.
you can get them at part number 31-5745. remember DONOT REVERSE THE POLLS!! there is a strip down the side with negitve signs in it that corespond to the negitive lead. the board will have the polls printed on it or at lest om of them.

I just turned on my tv and there is a rainbow of lines down the right side of the tv. Since the tv has been on for about 5 min, they have gone away. Any ideas?

It sounds as though it had a problem degaussing but may not do it again.
If it does, there is possibly a dry joint beneath the possitor and on any large component on the boards.
Hope this helps.

Sometimes the TV comes on and works fine with no problems for weeks, other times it will not come on at all, not even a click when pressing the on/off button. Strange but seems to work ok in hot humid...
