    Mine does the same thing... If you hold the power button, it will eventually come on but the picture is terrible. The screen flickers and a very light ticking sound can be heard from behind the tv. The picture itself is also very dark.. I'm tempted to open it up.. Any suggestions?

    Magnavox LCD TV, Model 32MF231D

    TV works fine for a couple minutes then goes black with motorboat sound.

    Can power off and on and same happens. Acts like capacitor. Checked all electroytics in the power supply and seem ok. Resoldered several places. Replaced capacitor 2074 (220 uF 25 VDC) and no fix. Beginning to think is transformer.

    i bought 32mf31d magnavox, after about 1.5 years, it starts to turn itself off automatically randomly, from minutes to seconds. i think it's a common problem, manufacture should do something, like recall. if anyone fixes it, please let me know how. thanks.

    Have the same problem with the tv. Checked the cap 2074 2200uf but it checks good. Don't know what the problem is. My tv comes on for 5 sec. then shuts off. Green led on front panel by power button blinks very slowly.

    I have a DayTek 32" Flat Panel LCD TV model number DK321A. It continues to lose time. I tried a factory reset code I found on the internet and now the power button from the remote does not always work. (I am not sure if it was a proper code and realize I should not have used it, Sorry!). Do you think the proper factory reset code would work and if so, what is it, do you know? By the way I have ruled out batteries as a problem for the power button. My thoughts are that both problems could be fixed by a true factory reset. I hope I am correct. Please help and I hope you have a great day!

    I have been in the tv broadcast field for over 30 years. You can go to remote codes on the internet and look up the remote code for your Daytek 32 " LCD TV. That if you have not found it yet.

    You can go on the internet to remote codes for your tv and get the code if you have not found it yet

An earlier post of the smaller model of this with the same problem said to remove the metal cover over the power supply.

I have the 26MF231D and it worked great afterward (even though you can't mount it)

Here is how you remove the cover.

I got bush TV cant get off device cuz havent got remite

Purchase a Logitec Harmony remote. When you set it up, the software asks for the device you intend to control. Enter in your make, and model number. After the remote setup is complete, you should be able to control it.

I would check on the logitec website ( before you purchase to make sure your device is supported before making the purchase. But they support just about anything under the sun.

Devant ER 31951D remote

Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Pull up older posts. If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician.
