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.

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.

My philips televison doesnt turn on Previously I would just unplug it and plug it back on and would turn on I believe that its the on/off switch that isnt working properly. The TV works it just cant be...


try this before you toss it...recently my magnavox 37" had been takign upwards to an hour to turn on. this past tuesday i check these threads to determine the problem. like many have said, its probably the capacitor, which it was n my case. basically i took everything apart and the bad (2) capacitors were obvious. one was oozing the electrolytic fluid and the top of the other started to 'dome' on the cap. i then went to a local electronics store (not radio shack, parts are too specific)... $3 for the (2) capacitors and a $20 solder iron. then you just de-solder the bad caps' and replace. i took the approach that - "what's the worse that could happen, the tv already didnt work?" well i just completed teh fix, it took about 3 hours and saved me nearly $300 that i didn't have. you can't be without your flatscreen at the beginning of football season!!!

gook luck

Daewoo TV Dead


STARTING: fuse, swelled capacitors, voltage reading on the output of the power supply board. In that order. BE CAREFUL the power supply board is the one that plugs in the wall and has 120 volts on it. The output should only be 5 and 12 volts etc. If you have nothing there, that's a good thing, the rest of the TV is probably good.

WARNING: This applies only to a modern, flat TV. If it's a older CRT type, they have up to 50,000 volts in them and will KILL YOU.

Magnavox 19" TV shuts itself off.....won't stay on


I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

Magnavox # 37MF231D


that depends on the value of the television and the cost of replacing the power supply and connections.
Most likely you have a short in your power supply or other connections causing the tv to protect itself by shutting down. You can check with our Repair Service lookup icon for a repair service near you.
Before you call them you may try unplugging your unit for 30 minutes or so and plugging it back in.

The answer to this depends on the model. My service literature does not reveal the answer, so you will have to call Philips. Try unplugging the TV for a few minutes first. Even if the remote is programmed properly, the lock will still keep it from turning on.
