Question about Philips Magnavox 20MC4306 20" TV/VCR/DVD

1 Answer

I have 20MC4306. Recently when you turn it off it turns itself back on. Also when you turn it on shuts off after 2 seconds. Tried putting in a video vhs then press play and wait few seconds and hit stop. TV stays on most of the time. After trying different outlets, holding plug and was going to plug it in a surge protector the other day when it turns itself on without being plugged in. Ghosts????

Sometimes when the TV recives a brodcast signal for a new update to the mainframes firmware, it will have to turn itself on to install/recive the update and aslong as it is connected to a power source it can do this. hope this helped answer your question. Have a good day :)

1998 grand marquis turns off by itself while running.


If you think the problem is the security system. This is for programming with no keys.
Use a scan tool to verify that the numkeys pid value is less than 8.
Use a scan tool to verify that the sparekey pid value is enable or yes.
Insert either the remaing key or a new cut key and turn to run.
Use the sacan tool to navigate to pats system and then choose security access. The scan will count to 10 minutes before the model will allow you in, once in, choose ignition key codes erase.
Did connect scan tool and turn key off. Inset key and turn to run for 3 seconds, then turn the key off and remove. Insert second second key and turn to run for three seconds, then turn key to off and remove.

TV turns on, then turns itself off about 2 seconds later.


set has a self diagnostic---after set does shut down press and hold MENU AND DEVICE(INPUT) buttons on front of set for 5 seconds----if 2 blinks, a pause and 2 more blinks: this is short protection error code---The set does use 2 Stk394-250 and each is protected by a pico fuse in the power supply---if either fuse is blown the set will shut down(it detects no voltage or missing voltage;) It is not uncommon for a shorted IC to cause this problem; if you locate the STK's look carefully at the resistors around them---if any are discolored or burnt---you have found your problem.

Biostar gf7100 mp - wont boot with ext usb drive attached


Hi, What you have to do is shut down the machine, pull the CMOS battery(CR2032) out and out and put your jumper on pins 1-2 from 2-3. Wait 30 seconds and put the battery back in. After installing the battery, put your jumper back to pins 2-3 from 1-2. This should work.

If it starts & runs for a few seconds with gas down carb, obviously you have a fuel delivery problem, as in fuel filter plugged, fuel pump, or perhaps you got some bad gas recently?

TV shuts off


I would suggest that you guys turn the unit off when this happens, unplug the unit for 30 seconds, plug it back in, and see if this helps. If this does not solve your problem, you should call 1-800-448-2244, so a service center in your local area can be found for further assistance.

Power issue, blank screen.


Don't listen to dnbull. i looked at the PSP sites, and apperantly that kind of thing will only happen if it got screwed because you shut of power while it was loading, downloading, saving etc. and it will take about 2-4 hours of time for the data to restart. Put in on a charger and leave it on for a long time and it should restart. you might not have all your files though... sorry...:(
