Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television
Have Magnavox 51MP392H/17 first the pic started to flicker every once in awhile, no no pic and only sound. Menu letters wont show either. Any Idea's? Thanks, Tim
The popping sound may have been a capacitor. The chance are the capacitor is in the HV section of the TV set and is part of the supply to the Horizontal section of the TV. First if you do not have electronics experience I would suggest you take the TV to a qualified TV repair shop. OK now if you have electronics experience I would say to unplug the TV, open the set up and do a physical inspection of the TV you will be looking for a capacitor that has exploded; if you find one look at the schematic for the TV and find its value. Then do so checks to find out why did the capacitor explode. Most likely the capacitor exploded because of wear and tear, but it always pays to check. Replace the capacitor with one of the same value and then turn the TV on, use your voltmeter to measure the voltage across the capacitor to make sure its the same or close to the value on the schematic.
These are the basics of what to do
I hope this helps
