Question about Philips Magnavox TS3260C 32" TV
Our Magnovox is 10 1/2 years old, and in the last 2 weeks, it has just been shutting off by itself while we are watching a program or DVD. We unplug it, then plug it back in and it will come on for a little while, then it will shut off again. Please see if you can tell us what is wrong or if it is time for a new TV. Our model number is not listed in the previous pages so here it is (TS2543 C121). Thanks for any help you can give.
Since the set needs to be unplugged and plugged back in, the requlator circuit in the power supply may have a problem. The set is over a decade old and other things are going to start going wrong with it. Capacitors will dry up, solder joints will begin to crack and the picture tube will begin to get weaker. My suggestion is to invest in a new set, with a newer technology. Hope this helps.
