Question about Philips Magnavox 42MF521D/37 Television

1 Answer

Magnavox 37MF437B/37. Been a great TV. Howeber has developed an issue within the last year. Upon power up, sometimes the power light will go green when you use the remote or push standby button, and then nothing. just sits there. No no reponse with the remote, the push button, nothing. The only fix is to remove power completely and then it may work fine for days or weeks before it does it again. Have also developed a blue tint around the edges of the screen now where it used to be black. It may be, however, the cable converter as it acts normal viewing the HDMI input (DVD) Thanks, Jim

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems the issue is with the power board or the main board and we’ll need to check few things. When you open the unit up; take a look at the power board-the board where the power cords/plugs goes into. You might see some filter capacitors a little bulged up in the top-If this is the case-this is your defective part(you can try to replace them-but some soldering equipment is needed). If not, then probably the main board has gone bad. This is the other board-where all the inputs are going into. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise and know how to solder/re-solder components. Please note that the TV components consists high voltages even when in off position. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks
Rylee

Magnavox 37MF437B/37 keeps blowing fuses


Either a short somewhere---which fuse? The one at the power cord or what?

Other possible reason is wrong fuse----many of the fuses in these sets are special-----if you go and buy some Generic ones--hardware store or Radio Shack the fuse even with same amperage/voltage rating may blow at turn on instantly for no reason------

My Magnavox tv will not come on. I hear what sounds like a small bird chirping inside the tv but nothing else. It started a few weeks ago taking a long time to come on. Once we unpluged it and left


The TV has developed defects in the board such as leaky/dry capacitors, dry solders etc. Kindly look for a qualified service technician around your area.

My magnavox 37mf321d 37 LCD tv


This is a bad power supply and an easy fix. Their are several electrolytic capacitors on the power supply. If one is bad it will have a bulge on the top. Mine had a bad 2200uF and a bad 1200uF capacitor. About $7 worth of parts at Radio Shack. Radio Shack had the 2200uF but it was axial leads instead of radial. (leads come out of each end instead of one end) but It will still fit. They only had a 1000uf capacitor so I combined that with a 220uF capacitor and wired them in parallel. Make sure you put them in with the correct polarity.

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.
