Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

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?

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 have a old 52 inch sony tv turns on but picture blinks off and on whats wrong


A lot of their older sets (both regular TV sets and big rear projection set had this issue).

In either case it may mean with age the MASTER SCREEN control/s need to be adjusted slightly up---if too dim a picture it will blink.

A model number would tell me what to try.

Models beginning with KP are large projection and ones with KV are regular sets.

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.

If the TV is the same as the one that my father has, hold the tamper prof button in front the tv, and it flashes like 3-4 times. then the tamper button should be turned off.

It won't turn on!


Have you checked to make sure the lock on the back hasn't been switched?
