Double flashing means that the power source is overstressed - one of the main consumers is drawing much more power than the source is capable of delivering so it shuts down by itself to protect the rest of the tv.
Most likely on a tv of that age the problem lies in the horizontal deflection unit - start checking the components, the power transistor and the electrolytic capacitors first.
This requires at least a basic experience in electronics, if you don't have it, don't touch it, you can do more damage just by touching the wrong stuff. Call a repairman and ask for a quote.

Hi, I see this type of thing often, in my shop, a customer pulls a unit out of storage, after a while, and are stumped when it will not, "Go".Well, unfortunately, you see when a TV set, or any, electronic, device, is left without power going through it, it actually does it harm, things in storage should be powered up at least a few times a month, otherwise the Capacitors will loose their "Form" and will not work correctly, and if left too long the unit simply becomes unservicable, also the moisture in the atmosphere, gets absorbed by osmosis, into "Other" compnentry, and this too causes failures, not to mention, any other sort of corrosion, or perhaps flat cells in a unit, inductors etc. So as said, this makes a unit more or less unrepairable. without a large dollar outlay with no guarantee of success.

I need old style urc4330 Big easy remote codes for magnovox tv


The URC 4330 Big Easy remote codes for a Magnavox TV are:

0054, 1254, 0030, 0179, 0187, 0096, 0020, 0186, 0386, & 0024

Program them in by turning on your TV, pressing TV on the remote, pressing and holding SET until the LED blinks twice, entering the first code in the list, (the LED will blink twice to say it has been accepted, if it didn't blink twice start over at 'pressing TV on the remote'), and pressing POWER to test the code and turn off the TV. If the TV didn't turn off, repeat the steps using the next code on the list.

Hope that helps.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

For more more examples and find a fix using this link on Fixya http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

Magnavox Plasma HDTV Red light


I had a similar problem with my magnavox tv with the blinking light issue. Eventually it just didn't come one anymore. Looking at other forms they said the problem was a bad capacitor number 2074 located on the power supply board. When I opened my tv, I noticed that the capacitor was bulging and burnt up. I bought a new one labeled 2200uf 35v and did some solder to attach the new piece. Put the tv back together and it works like new. No more blinking light. I hope this helps.
