Dear smmmobil,
The problem lies with the SMPS (switch mode power supply ) of your TV. The smps board needs to be replaced.

Sounds like The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; [Exclude the model number], in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

I had the same problem with a Magnavox LCD TV. It would not turn on and the light on the external PSU flashed. I found a replacement 12V 5A power supply on EBAY. It brought the set back to life.

Philips Magnavox 37" LCD Flat Screen 37MF331D Have replaced power board,main board,hit power a faint light on whole screen for about 2 seconds the nothing.


Disconnect the LVDS Cable that runs from the small signal board to the display panel and apply power,if the screen comes on,the Small signal board (aka Scaler Bd ) is the faulty board. other than that,all that's really left that has gone bad for me is the logic board.

Not powering up right away


This is a big problem with these tv's. Magnavox built them with undersized capacitors, and they blow. You have to open the back, remove the power supply and replace the capacitors numbered 2074 and 2081. This sounds like a real tech job, but read my other solutions, and you will see it is not so hard. Good luck.
