1.Turn the television set on by pressing the "Power" button on the set.
2. Find the "Code Search" button on the Philips Magnavox remote. This
button will be labeled or will be a different color than the other
buttons on the remote (depending on which Philips Magnavox remote you
3. Hold the "Code Search" button down for about ten straight seconds. The
light on the Philips Magnavox remote should then stay on.
4. Starting pressing either the "Up" or "Down" channel button on the
Philips Magnavox remote. Continue pressing the same button until the
television responds to the remote. It could take a few minutes for the
channel to change so you'll need to have patience when searching for the
remote code in this manner.
5. Press the power button on the Philips Magnavox remote once the channel
has changes. If the device shuts off, press the power button again to
turn the TV back on. If the TV turns on, the remote has been programmed
correctly. Repeat the entire process if your remote is not programmed.
The new battery stays on the shelves for quite some time and probably discharged. Does you ac adaptor work? Make sure it does, charge it up first a bit then start it. If you have voltmeter, you can measure its output which should be around 19 volts. Sometimes the connection to the laptop also gets loose after a while, but make sure the ac adapter has power to it.
I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.
Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV
up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors.
Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although
were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of
preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected
due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.
Tvtek is on the right track. The remote will not solve the problem. Sounds like a voltage regulator in HV circuit if it only lasts a few seconds. If it stays on for a couple of minutes, beam limiter cicuit is pushing to overload and shutting unit down. Magnavox set not hard to repair, but a 27" set is not cost effective to repair either.
Same problem. The power button does not work. The volume and channel buttons turn the tv on. the tv then shuts its self off 15 seconds later. the red light blinks in second intervals while this happens.
