Question about Philips Magnavox 20MS233S 20" TV
Magnavox model number 20mt4405/17, the tv is about 2 years old, it turns on then you hear some popping sounds and the tv goes out. You can turn it right back on bur it will do the same thing.
I agree "Chriss TV". It should be noted that the cost of parts and labor will be close to the price you paid for the tv new. The Magnavox 20MT4405/17sells for $129 in my area. The flyback transformer sells for around thirty dollars. Just guessing, but I think I'm in the ballpark. This is not a do-it-yourself project if you've never replaced a flyback before. To save money you may want to ask your friends if they have friends who are tv techs. If not, call around to tv repair shops and tell them that you have a set that needs the flyback replaced and would they replace the flyback with one that you supply? If they would, ask them for their fees they would charge for this replacement. Also ask them what it would cost if they supplied the flyback. Ask them for the flyback part number. Then start shopping for a flyback on the internet. This may save you a few dollars. Just a thought.
