Question about Televison & Video
When I turn on the tv on picture ,blinking screen, power switch blinks green constantly
Yes, he means 2200 microfarret (called uf from here on out). Another important concern when buying a replacement is the voltage. You need to get something that is at least 25v. I recommend a 35v or better. Another notable point is that this may not always fix the problem. As with mine, there was also a 1200uf (microfarret) 35v capacitor that was blown. You can tell this because they bulge at the top. I have both of these caps (2200uf 35v and 1200uf 35v) on order and they will be here tomorrow. If I do not post back here then they fixed the issue for me. I suspect that this will resolve the problem. Look for bulges on top of the caps. This is an indication that they are blown. Most all of you experiancing these symptoms will see the 2200uf cap bulging but you may also see others bulging too. If you do then you need to replace those too. No electrolitic capacitor should be bulging at the top so if its bulging its bad, and if its bad then your tv will definitely not work. Have fun.

It is the capacitor. Magnavox installed a power system that is insufficient. All you need to fix the problem is a 2200 watt capacitor that is heat resistant up to 150 degrees. I bought mine at radioshack for 4 bucks. My friend spent five minutes installing the new piece and now my t.v.is fine...Good luck everyone!!! -Zach p.s. the hardest part is unscrewing everything but the actual fix is simple...

The word is Farad, not farret, and it's a name, so it's capitalized. A cap isn't mmeasured in Watts, zjustice, and they're electrolytic. I appreciate that you guys try to do your own repairs, but please try to learn and use the right terminology.
