Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV

Magnavox TV won't turn on

We were watching TV (it hadn't even been on for an hour) and it suddenly lost power. We unplugged it for several minutes and tried to turn it on again, but it still is not working. We also tried cleaning all the air vents and plugging it into another outlet. Any suggestions? Please help!

    My mom has a 2004 Phillips Magnavox Model 27MS3404 that suddenly has no picture or sound, but the unit appears to turn on manually or with the remote control. Cannot find a reset button if there is one. Any suggestions?

There is a capacitor on the main board the goes leaky and will prevent the tv from turning on. If you know how, you can check the caps near the flyback transformer and find the leaky cap if you are not a tech and don't have a ESR meter it is beter to have a trusted tech to do the repair. Depending on the shop cost should be around $79-$89 depending on if you take it in or have them do a home call.

You didn't mention if you had any raster or if your attempts to turn it on were by remote or local. If the set is totally without power you can try replacing the internal fuse. This is a mini fuse. Make certain your set has been unplugged for at least a half hour before attempting this. The set holds high voltages for a while, even when the set is off. If the set was off, but plugged in, you can have leaking electrolytic capacitors in the power supply that can cause some problems as well. So be certain that the set is unplugged for at least a half an hour before attempting to replace the internal fuse. The value of the fuse will be seen on the fuse itself. You may need a magnifying glass to read the value. If the fuse is blown, it only represents the results of a problem elsewhere, so buy a few fuses when troubleshooting this problem. The fuse opened up when something overloaded the circuit. The next step depends of what happens when the fuse blows. After you know this, you can proceed to the next step. The parts cost of repairing this type of problem may be minimal, but you will need to determine the complexity of the problem before you take it to the next step.

Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

I've been having this problem for a while. when I'd turn the tv on I was able to watch it for about 15 minutes. suddenly the picture and voice would turn off, but the green power button was still solid...


Sounds like it may be a power supply issue. I don't know what "modules" the tech replaced, but I would have advised you to scrap the TV for a newer model as they can get pretty expensive to find and replace parts of the older rear projections. Sorry I can't be more help to you.

My Magnavox plasma screen tv, model number: 42MF237S/37 makes a clicking sound when I try to turn it on. No sounds, no picture, just the clicking noise. Things I have tried so far: 1) Turning the TV off...


You either have a cold solder joint in your horizontal deflection circuits or your or in your horizontal output circuit. please be careful due to the fly-back transformer still holds power even unplugged until you discharge it.( ground it out). Hope this helps.

Tv turns off after 15 minutes of use


For bobby11 and luis, it is the power supply. Part Number EAY34797001 in the 42" and EAY34796801 in the 32". This is a known problem, and somebody should start a Class Action against LG over this one. Part is available online and easy to swap out for anyone with the most basic knowledge.
