Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

MAGNAVOX 55p8288 I was reading some of the questions in regards to these rear projection TV's. I was hoping you would have an answer for mine. It's an 8 year old 50" Mag. It just begun about a month ago to turn off, but then it would turn back on maybe a few hours to a day later. Now, it doesn't turn off, almost liked the problem went away, BUT, now the sound fades out for a few hours and then it returns to normal. What gives??? To much dust? Now, I'm afraid to dust it since you answered that it my throug off the convergence?

CNdouble - By virtue of the S-video cable, it should support at leats 720p - there is no 720i. By virtue of having component cables, it should accept 1080i as well, but I can't find the specs for this one anywhere. If you put in a 1080i source and it plays when hooked to component, then you know it can support that as well. Most of the projections in this era were capable of 1080i, but there is 0 mention in the manual.

My phillips magnavox big screen tv model number 55p8288 doesnt have any sound when i turn it on

Check the audio setting to make sure the internal speakers aren't turned off. Check to see if it's set to use external speakers. If it is setup to run sound through an av receiver check all connections, make sure the receiver is on the correct input setting, and speaker wires.
