    Thanks. I was afraid of that. The TV is only 5 years old so I wasn't expecting to have to purchase a new TV.

The color light/led is typical indication of a problem in the power section..IT can be from a few things failing. None of these are really major on their own but when you go to repair them the cost can add up due to labour. Thats the deal breaker on fixing these smaller tv's. Even a simple repair will cost as much as a replacement. So we tend to recommend a new tv. We don't sell them so we don't make any money on that. If a store would tell you that you may get a wee bit suspicious but in this case a store might actually be telling the truth.

Normally what goes out on these are a few small capacitors in the power section. If I were to fix it I would replace every even slightly suspicious one (maybe 6-10 total) and the parts might cost $5. Unfortunately to do that the labour would be over $100 minimum.

Best advice is to replace it, then you get a new warrantied tv and a working remote for about the same money. If you have a friend who can solder and you can get to do it on the cheap if he can fix it then it might be worth fixing. Unfortunetly unless the tv is larger and much newer they usually aren't worth fixing for the owner.

If the problem is same with different input devices and you have ensured there are no loose contacts in power outlet, RC jack, cable and sockets, the TV needs servicing.

Try to turn it on with a remote if one is available. If you don't have the original remote you can look up the universal code for the cable or satellite remote. Also try to turn it on with the input source(vcr,video game, cable box,etc...) on first. I have the same TV and if it has no signal prior to manual power up it will go to standby mode.

Magnavox 15mf605t/17 15'' LCD HDTV won't turn on


Have similar TV. If it is set to the PC source, it goes into standby when there is no signal, like a regular monitor. Even though the monitor is in standby, you can still press the Source button to change to, say, HD input, and will use the familiar on/off action when pressing Power on the remote.

A little weird, but I've gotten very used to it.

Depending on your TV and receiver there should be a button on the remote that says Format push that button a few times and see if the picture comes back.

I have a Magnavox 51" Projector TV. Model 51MP392H/17


Hello bullmuscle,

This is a power supply problem, I would suspect the HV power supply because the primary and secondary supplies anymore are tied to the HV power supply. This type of repair requires certain pieces of equipment, to test voltages, look at signals, and to if need be test for shorts in inductors (Switching PS transformer and Flyback transformer). I would not recommend that you try to fix this yourself, The cost for this type of problem is not that expensive and can be done in one evening, if the parts are available. You may be fortunate and it could be just a blown fuse, in the HV or LV power supply circuit

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

No startup


For my FTR9965, it is necessary to physically unplug the
power cord from the box before you are able to enter the service codes. The sequence is:

1. Unplug the box for a few seconds.

2. Plug it in again.

3. Turn on the box with the front panel power switch. Wait for the green light to come on.

4. From the remote, quickly enter 062596 plus the info key.

5. A message comes on the monitor warning you that you could really screw things up if you don't know what you're doing, and do you really want to continue? If yes, hit any button on the remote. You only have a few seconds to respond.

6. The "stand alone" option is near the end of the "service" menu list. When you find it, change the "no" to "yes".

7. Go back to the main SAM menu, scroll down to "Store", and hit OK. I'm assuming this makes the "yes" selection permanent.

8. Enter "00" to exit SAM.
