Could be power supply failure

SNK Magnavox... | Answered on Jun 18, 2017


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Flashing Red Light is a sign you should contact Authorized Service or check User Manual for such reference.

BUT BE CAUTIOUS NOT TO TRY A REPAIR YOURSELF!

Look for capacitors on power board with domed tops. Replace them with same value. This is common failure on this set.

your should take it back to where you bought it and just get a new one.

yes...the video card could have gone out but most likely you have a connection that is loose or bad. I would check those first. If you have done so then I would try another video port and verify that it is the screen that is out and not just the port you are in.

The power switch could be defective but more likely the power supply is failing

I would suspect faulty capacitors in the power supply

check first bulging capacitor in the power supply board.

How old is this TV? It may have a malfunction in the power supply that may be related to the lack of quality capacitors in the power supply section.

Some components from the power source of your tv are dying and the embedded protection system detects that and blocks it to prevent further damage. Immediately stop trying to start it and call a repairman now, while the damage is still fixable, otherwise you will end up without the tv.

I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have to buyand try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.If set is opened at least look for puffed up and bad caps like in thisphoto.5_24_2012_4_20_43_pm.jpg5_24_2012_4_21_09_pm.jpg

Issues and answersSolutions(1)I see so many people here with no sound /pictureissues:

ISSUES:

1. If sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby light check fuse, standby power supply, and look forany signs of damage you can see (burnt parts etc)
3. Almost all these SETS troubleshooting consists of checking voltages andtrying to narrow problem down.
4. Be safe and if do not know what you are doing do not open set.

2. RE:power supply: if total dead aside from main fuse set uses Standby powerand main power supply (some standby is on separate board but most are combined.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps to seeif any are puffed up or buldged in some fashion; I attach a photo: top shouldbe (silver metal) perfectly flat and have no brown material coming out on topor bottom---l can give you a description if needed here why they fail---too lowvoltage rating causes them (standby area) to overheat and fail in a average 1-2years= The standby is running 7/24 when set is plugged in.

3. Trouble shooting: It consists of the above and then at some point you haveto buy and try a board/s to see which if any fix the issue.

4. Safety first---no set is worth getting injured or even killed over.
