This is a common problem with the older models. The opt chip fails. You can get a repair kit at www.magnavoxhelp.com. After a few months of getting smaller and smaller the audio and video will go out but the power light will remain lit.

TV picture is unstable until the TV warms up. This is taking longer and longer. Picture gets large, small, large, small... Quality is also lacking until it is warmed up. This is a Phillips 60'' Is this...


What model and brand is your television?
Is it a CRT type or DLP?
If picture is getting smaller then larger, and its a crt rear projection television sound like you have bad connections around the Flyback transformer and or horizontal circuits. This usually happens when a connection is made on the circuit board and the picture returns to normal especially during a cold start, but as the television warms up the connections on the board start to seperate and the problem starts occuring or it could be in the reverse process. Unstable at first then when tv gets warm it make better connections. All in all have a technician check the HV section of your deflection board.

Probably a voltage regulator problem. It's not something you can fix yourself unfortunately

A 10 year old Rear Projection tv is usually at the end of its life. No such thing as "fluid". Best advice, get a new TV.
