Question about Flat Panel Televisions

1 Answer

TV just starting turning on and off on its own

I am not sure why this is happening. Never had a problem before. I have a 20" Magnavox Flat Screen. Model # : 20MS3442/17 No matter what I do it turns on and off constantly. Only way to stop it is unplug it. What can I do myself to fix this without paying thru the nose with a repair guy?
Any help would be appreciated. Thank You..

Try taking out the battery to the remote. If this doesn't fix it, pay the repair guy. If it does, replace the remote.

Magnavox 42 LCD 42mf438b/f7 turns on/off by itself sometimes screen goes blank tv unresponsive to remote


I have exactly the same problem with a Magnavox LCD 42", very similar model 42MF437B/37. I don't have a solution. If you unplug the TV and plug it back it starts working, sometimes for hours, sometimes for less than 5 minutes, before it turns off again. Does anyone have any real solution?

Vertical black line on the screen of my 42" Magnavox flat panel lcd tv


I wish I could post a solution, but I don't have one. I too have a Magnavox. About 6 months ago, once every 2 weeks or so, the screen would just go black- all but an inch or two on either side. Now, it seems like it's a weekly thing, sometimes every hour or two. As of tonight, it has happened twice in a matter of thirty minutes. It usually repairs itself if I turn it on and then off again but that's just not working anymore. If anyone has a solution, let me know.

An earlier post of the smaller model of this with the same problem said to remove the metal cover over the power supply.

I have the 26MF231D and it worked great afterward (even though you can't mount it)

Here is how you remove the cover.
