Question about Philips Magnavox 15MF400T 15 in. LCD Television
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.
