Model 55p8288 46" big screen Magnovox. On / Off buttom blinks but doesn't turn on. My 11 year old played with it over and over by pushing the Source Select button after I had given up. The TV turned on and was working for months until I pushed the Source Select button again to try to get a DVD player to work.I think that button may be defective. Am I on the right track?

The TV turned on and was working for months until I pushed the Source Select button again to try to get a DVD player to work.I think that button may be defective. I have tried soldering it but I need to know if I am soldering at the right point.If I push the Source select button or the channel button the blinking light on the on/off switch will stop for a couple of seconds and then resume blinking.I wrote down the P{hillips part number which is 313501707611, do you know where I can get this part?

    however, the blinking of the power indicator, is reflecting a fault in the set. Try powering it down for 30 mins by unplugging at the wall to do a reset, then power up again and see if the fault continues.
    If you have no luck, I suggest a repair man is in order. repairs can get complicated to TV, and it is always cheaper to professional fix the original fault, not try to work out what has happened from other attempts at repair.
    I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about
    it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight
    to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at

I was downloading a program and left the room, when I returned my laptop was turned off. When I try to turn it on the only light that blinks is the second light which I believe is for the battery and it...


v5000V (now obsolete and retired at HP,no support) (tiny)
11 years old now.! (doing site searches i did find the 1 book)
well good, you ran it with no main battery , very good.
they do go bad often and short out inside, so leave it out until the PC runs perfect again,. ok? 11 year old batteries are well, BAD NEWS.
but what does the screen do?, tell about the screen , the LEDs tell very little and get confused easy, see last paragraph below.
the screen must show text that is first of all fact with fan, the fan must blow and not be packed up with lint like all are this old and never SERVICED.
next is what, the RTC coin cell. will be dead.
ill make a list , for you, for laptops only.
  1. big battery out, leave it out, run an AC only pack.
  2. new coin cell,? RTC ? Page 102, ,, http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00700903.pdf
  3. fan must blow, does it>??? and free if lint all vents and fan.?
  4. screen must show text turned on now, does it>?
  5. yes, good , no bad, no means CCFL dead. CCFL are backlamps and all PC this old used daily the lamps are now bad, on all of them or dim, or yellow'd or blinking or intermittent. ALL DO THAT NOW. until 2010 LED born.
  6. yes good ,you got text then we test BIOS next. page 210, "hit f10 to enter setup" < see that , that is the text you saw for 11 years but not today. that is text, and the F10 key works, and takes you to BIOS screens, does it?, if not do line 2 above.

I will stop here, no OS stated is this XP? or VISTA?
after step 6 works we can do windows tests.,hdd test, etc.


the first step on all HP LT
is the HP long reset. (posted millions of times at real HP forum)
1: main battery out.
2: line pack AC removed.
3: hold the hp power-button for 10 to 30 seconds
now run on ac only. run now?

one other clue is beeps and blinks of Caplock Led keys, codes
never ignore blink codes.
page 13 in the above manual covers the battery lamp but the battery needs to be kept out, its 11 years old do no use it.
the lamp
lamp led 1 is power, (does this glow?) if not power pack issues.
if led 1 blinks that means it needs the long reset above.
lamp led 2, is battery , no matter, battery is out. for sure.

here is dead laptop page.
seem you are stuck at step 5 to me.
step 11 below page,see that, it's the flash light test !@

getting the PC to boot is last, its the last in the serial chain of events. (and a whole other bag of snakes)

I need old style urc4330 Big easy remote codes for magnovox tv


The URC 4330 Big Easy remote codes for a Magnavox TV are:

0054, 1254, 0030, 0179, 0187, 0096, 0020, 0186, 0386, & 0024

Program them in by turning on your TV, pressing TV on the remote, pressing and holding SET until the LED blinks twice, entering the first code in the list, (the LED will blink twice to say it has been accepted, if it didn't blink twice start over at 'pressing TV on the remote'), and pressing POWER to test the code and turn off the TV. If the TV didn't turn off, repeat the steps using the next code on the list.

Hope that helps.
