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.

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.

Picture goes off


A temporary solution is to unplug the TV for a few minutes, remove static from the glass with your hand. It is important to unplug rather than turn off. If you have a degauss button you can also press that before unplugging. Wait several minutes or an hour. Then plug it back in. If you have Picture in Picture it may be an issue with that and to permanently solve may need a repair person. The unplugging may get you by for a few days at a time. That's at least better than an hour.

Big black box in the middle of the screen


The black box is there because your closed captioning is on and set to text mode. Some channels send the signal even when there is no actual text to display. You can get rid of it by either turning off closed captioning or changing it to CC1 or CC2 mode instead of text. If you can't find those settings, then restore factory settings as directed in your user manual.

Power button Flashes


For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.
Thanks,

Power light blinking


The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.


If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

As computer controlled as TV's are it is a good thing first to unplug the set for 2 minutes then trying operation again.

No picture on a Sony KV-32V65 TV


AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the Cboard, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking.
