    use a hair dryer to heat up the capacitor resin and gently peel it off and you will be able to read the values

I get a double click when I turn on the set... The red light blinks with 5 seconds intervals. When on occasion when I turn it on and get one click the tv comes on but will black out about 15 to 20 minutes...


Hi
A common problem for these is bad capacitors in the power supply, Remove the back from your Tv and look at the power supply on the left hand side.

You will see roughly around 9 x capacitors that are bulged / domed shaped on top usually these are valued at 3300uf 10V any that have bulged or leaked a brown like substance should be changed.
This will cure the problem as they overheat being sat next to a heatsink that gets very hot!
Try and change them for the same 3300uf but a higher voltage.
Hope this helps

I have a knocking (5 quick, loud knocks) sound intermittently on my refrigerator. I think it is when the compressor starts up (not 100% sure). I opened the back panel and everything looked normal except...


Chances are that black tar like substance you are seeing if from the capacitor. This is were I would start, as a capacitor is not all that expensive. Make sure it is the same rating as the current capacitor, and be aware that capacitors store electricity. When you disconnect the leads don't cross the terminals with your fingers, or you will get a shock. Hope this helps

SUSPECT DAMAGED CAPACITORS


Bulged capacitors are blown, that is the reason why the motherboard do not start.

Sometimes replacing capacitor may fix the problem, but due to the inexpensiveness of motheboard, and to the chance that more component may had been damaged by the fault, when this happen you usually replace the motherboard, rather then repairing at component level.

TV will not Power Up / Blinking Green Light on Power Button


May be the same problem Magnavox is having with their 27MF231d. I found the fix on this site and it took care of the same problem with my set. Not the easiest thing to do, but it worked. If you do not know how to solder, get some help with this one. If you take it to a Magnavox Authorized repair location, they will just replace the bad capacitor with another bad capacitor of the same type and voltage. The problem is they have a 25w capacitor where a 35w capacitor should be. Mine was bulging, with black tar looking stuff coming out of it. It was obviously bad. Follw the instructions below.

1. Remove all screws around perimeter, one screw at the lower right at (Side A/V), and 2 1”round plastic knob s.
2. Remove back cover
3. At lower left side remove 2 screws for On/Off switch cut tie wrap that holds wire down for free movement.
4. Disconnect wire connector to side A/V at lower right side
5. Disconnect wire connector to right side circuit Board
6. Disconnect wire connector to left side circuit board
7. Remove the 2 mounting brackets upper left and upper right 2 screws each.
8. Remove 3 screws each side of the metal box in the middle
9. Fold back metal tape off bottom and top of metal box
10. 1 wire connector at top of box I left connected
11. Flip metal box over towards top of Tv. Be careful of wire at top thats still connected.
12. On left side in box is power supply board
13. Towards bottom of board you should see the numbers C2081 and C2074
14. Remove the six screws holding down power supply board
15. Flip board down towards bottom of Tv.
16. Unsolder capacitors replace with new 1200uf 35v and 2200uf 35v 105°C radial capacitors
17. Capacitors should be around 1/2” to 5/8” dia. X 1.25 long appox. 2 Wires come out of one end should be .030 dia.
18. Reassemble in reverse order and enjoy
