anything wrong.Could you tell the possible causes for this malfunction?

    Thanks Doctor video for your tip.The tv set now presents a new malfuction which is:as soon as it starts turns off and the flyback

    transformer is arcing near the HOT.I think the flyback has a defectiveness ,that's almost 100% sure. I decided to replace it and see what happens.I've already ordered it and I'm waiting for it.If that solves the problem,I'll let you know.

    .







    Thanks!

I would need model number on back to give you more exact solution. but it sounds like the voltage reulator is bad .you could get a hair dryer and put it on heat and go over board and when tv shut off that is the problem with freeze bottle you could get at radio shack you go over parts will keep it on longer good luck

Child lock came on by itself on apex pf2720


Apex TVs have parental locks that allow you to block certain programs based on
their rating. When this feature is no longer needed and you want your TV to display all programming no matter its rating, you must unlock your TV. Unlocking your Apex TV is done completely from your remote control and does not require any tools. The process takes less than 5 minutes.
• Press the "Menu" button on the remote control and use the arrow buttons to scroll down to the "Parental Guide" option, then press the "Enter" button.
Type in the default parental code "6688" if you have not set your own code. If you have set your own code, type it in. If you set your own code and forgot it, override it by using "6688."
Use the arrow keys to switch the parental lock to "OFF." This allows all programs to be viewed no matter the rating. Press the "Exit" button on the remote and start watching all your channels.

TV turns itself off after about 5 minutes (green light remains on). I can turn off the TV and turn it back on immediately, however, the TV turns itself back off after a few minutes. It started turning off...


Check and make sure your fans are working and there is sufficiant cooling to the back of the set. Sounds like it is overheating and going into protection mode.

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?

Clapper goes off every few minutes with no stimulus to do so


While in the Away setting, the clapper will turn on when it detects any noise over a specific threshold. After ten minutes of inactivity, it will turn off. This setting is meant as way turn on the lights as soon as you walk in the door or to startle might be intruders. If you slide the switch to Lo or Hi mode, the clapper will respond to your claps or any loud noises that sound similar. Hi is high sensitivity, for quieter rooms; Lo is low sensitivity, for louder areas.

It takes 5 to 7 minutes to turn on my Magnavox HD TV


IFyou feel confident and can locate switch mode power supply with back removed.
Try warming switchmode power supply before turning TV on.
If TV turns on normaly then there are some small capcitors that are a common cause of this fault.
Otherwise look for DRY or CRACKED solder jointson PCB
BUT DON'T do any of the above if your are not confident send it to a TV repaiman.

T.V. TURNING OFF AFTER ABOUT 5 MINUTES.


Go to Samsung.com for solution. There is a switch that just needs to be repositioned behind access door on rear. Fixed my HL-S5086W ok.

Problem with tv turning off by itself.


I had a friend with the same problem. He had to clean the components and fans in the set. The accumulated dust had caused the set to run hot and a safety switch was the tv off. He purchased a few cans of compressed air and, as he blew the components and fans out, used a vacuum to capture the blown dust. Good luck.
