Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV

1 Answer

Hilips Magnavox TV- Model # MS3250C321, Serial # 77488694

Dear Sir/Madam:

I have this TV, I inherited it, so I do not know exactly how old it is, probably three years.
It wirks fine, the picture is great, the voice is clear, the probelm is:

I switch it on, five seconds later it goes off, all by itself. This goes on forever, especially if the weather is rainy, like today. So it is for me: on - off - on - off - on - off......This started 'out of the blue' a couple of weeks ago. Can this be repaired and how much would it cost? Or shall I put the TV into the trash? Please tell me!

    Thanks for the kind advice.

    I agree, that's my question too, how much will it cost.

    Will it cost more than buying a new one? If the repair costs more than $ 200.--, I will certainly buy a new one because who guarantees that the TV will work after the repair? On the other hand, it is a $ 700.-- TV and otherwise it really works fine.

    I assume that a technician has to come and determine what's wrong with it, then take it to the repair shop, exchange the part that's not working, bring it back to my house - it's heavy, it is a 32' screen- and bill me for all of that. And maybe it does not help, either.

    What shall I do? Drop it in the trash and buy a new one or wait for better times (weatherwise?)

    Please advise, TIA, Hammoud

    I have the excate same problem but mine doesn't seem to be effected by the weather. Sometimes it's fine and sometimes it won't quit clicking off. If I hit the channel button and change the channel it makes a clicking noise and comes back on!

    Dear Karen 32 and gio 1:

    Thank you for your answers; they helped becasue now I know what I am going to do:

    First I will try what Karen suggested and hope it's going to work. I hope that now that the weather gets better, sunnier, my TV will stay longer on than off.

    Maybe I can save some bucks! It would be a pity because everything else just works fine!

    Thanks again!

    Dear Karen32:

    I want to thank you again for your kind advice for fixing my TV problem. It really works........

    When my TV goes off, I hit - as suggested by you - instead of the power button the channel button and the program comes right on again. In addition the picture and the voice got even better.

    Thanks again, you saved my day and a lot of $$$$,

Anything can be repaired, question is how much it will cost you.
Sounds like a problem in the high tension side of tv, wether it is the transformer or leakage remains to be seen.Also because it is aggravated by damp weather.

    Personally i would nt repair the tv, because usaully after you repair one part of the tv. The other part fails (tube).

    However if you choose to repair and spares are available, it should nt cost more than $200

Magnavox CL037 ? code for Dawoo TV

I own a One-for-All universal remote (model URC-4220), and my booklet says the setup code for a Daewoo TV is one of the following numbers: 0092, 0451, 0672, 1661, 1278.
If these numbers do not work, I would consider buying a newer universal remote. They can be bought at Walmart, for less than 10 dollars.
Hope these suggestions help you out. Please take a moment to rate the info that I have provided, by using the rating system below. Thanks.

Dear Sir or Madam,
     I need a manual to make sure that I connected all of the cords.  When I plug them  in, the Magnavox does go on, but the VSH nor the DVD player works.  So you know that I can not see or record any movies.  I did make a far move.
     Thank you for your time and I hope you can help me.

DVD input with signal access

IF I understand you correctly, the VCR, Satellite, etc is connected using an RF modulator/coaxial cable wire going into Antenna in

IF this is true, then you have an AV IN port (red, yellow, white) free on the back. Just connect the red, yellow, white from the out of the DVD - you can use 1 or 2 - just remember which one you used; and connect it to the AV IN on the back of the TV.

THEN press ch down on the TV remote until you get to "AV1" - it is below channel 2; double check DVD player to make DVD is playing and voila!

Smart lock access code on tv

A model number for your Magnavox TV would be helpful because the Parental Control Reset procedure varies. There should be a sticker on the back of the TV showing the model number. If you have a newer LCD model, the unlock code is usually 0711. Ignore any "Incorrect" warning and enter 0711 again. Then set or clear the Parental Access Code.
