Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV
Magnavox with dvd/ vcr combo wont stay on
I picked one up in the trash 2004 model 27MDTR20/17. I turn it on and it shuts off. I opened the back and pulled the DVD/VHS board out. I removed a metal cover on the VHS housing (three screws). There was a broken clear plastic rod and one of the gear stop plastic cords (on the left side) was ripped where it attached to the front metal bracket through a hole in the plastic tab. The plastic chord has a piece of white felt like material attached to it. I epoxied the plastic rod back and put a piece of tape over the broken plastic end of the cord. The tape was folded over the edge of the plastic and then wrapped back on itself. I trimmed the outline with a scissor and poked a new hole in the end where the original hole was under the tape. I attached the chord back to the metal bracket. The problem was still there, the power would go off after a few seconds and the VHS gear train would make a slight motion like it was getting stuck. I then removed the mounting screws on the VHS housing and lifted it off the board slightly (ther are 2 screws that need to be removed from the far side also). There is a small gear under the right side of the board that was not aligned with another gear. The alignment is between a pin on one gear and a hole on the other. After I aligned them I reassembled the unit. The power stays on now only if I leave a tape in it but the DVD and VHS seem to work. My problem now is that I can only select AUX and channel 2! On well thats my next battle. Good luck.
