Question about Philips Magnavox MS2530C 25" TV

1 Answer

TV turned upside down

I recently moved my 32" Magnavox down two flights of stairs alone. In the process I turned it upside down and even slid it a bit on it's top. Now when I turn it on, it comes on for a second or two with a bad picture (screwy colors) and then the screen goes blank. If you change channels this repeats. Is this a degaussing problem? Will the automatic degausser(sp?)take care of it? Would only an idiot turn a tv on it's head?

Well its not a good Idea to carry a TV set turned upside down because of the heavy parts mounted on the board could cause stress and crack the printed circuit board. This what most likly happened. The PC board is cracked. If you have no soldering skills and do not know how to work on printed circuits or solid state devices, you should seek the help of a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck.

I have a 60 inch Mitsubishi and there are light red shadows in the tv. is this an easy fix

It sounds like you need to re-adjust your convergence. The purpose of adjusting your convergence is to align your red, green, and blue colors. Moving your TV often causes this problem. I hope you get it going.

Moved dryer, hooked up wrong, not working now after re-hooked up

have you check outlet with a voltmeter or even checked breaker? Is your new rect' a 3 or 4 prong outlet? If you hooked up red's to black and black to reds it still should have worked. The 220 volt heating element is between the red's and blacks the 110 circuits would be between a red or black to white wire.

I need to move my Proform XP 620 treadmill down a flight of stairs. What is the best way to do this

Honestly, the best way to do this is to call an expert because any wrong adjustments to a treadmill can cause serious damage but if you want to attempt yourself you must try to move it whole with 2 people stronger holding the front of the tread as this is going to be the heaviest. Take the front down first down the stairs.

Moving the TV

you should be fine as long as you don't drop it of course. you and turn and twist it any which way but id say measure the height of the tv because at some point you will have the top and bottom of the tv touching 2 different walls if im not mistaken
