Re: magnavox big screen will not power on button blinks...
This is a common problem with older Philip Magnavox projection sets. Over time one of the IC chips on the main power board begins to fail. You can find replacment chips and repair instructions on www.magnavoxhelp.com.

You have a bad eeprom. Very common problem for this TV. The replacement eeprom [location, IC002, on the Tv board] is dependent on which microprocessor [location, IC001, on the TV board] and which stereo decoder [IC 1001] are present on the board. See if IC002 has a color mark on it. red, yellow, green..etc. Or give me the numbers on the actual IC 001 and Ic1001. For example IC 001[ microprocessor] might beMCU A22V01-TO and IC 1001 [stereo decoder] MSP3440. Take this info to a TV tech if you cannot repair this TV yourself. Thanks for asking and give me a High Five of hands!
Model number given indicates it should be a 2000 year model.
If so, it should have the self check feature; try to turn the set on and when the green light goes off: On the front of the set press and hold both the menu and input buttons for at least five seconds and then release both buttons.
Power light will blink a two digit error code like: 2 blinks,pause and 2 blinks (2,2 error code is most common one). It will repeat the error code several times.
Let me know what error code you find and I will tell you what it may mean.
if this told you something you did not know rate this solution as "very helpful" as I do this here for free.
You have a bad capacitor. Location is 2074, this is a 25 volt 2200MF 105 degree radial cap! Have a tech check any other caps nearby as well! This is a good start for repair......PS no flashing allowed!
Sorry, but there is not much you can do at this point. Could be a number of things. Convergance chips shorted, power supply bad. Horizontal circuit shorted. T.V's sence a problem and shut off. They hardly ever blow a fuse anymore. Problem is Magnavox sets are very poorly built and have a ton of different problems. Then you have other sets like Toshiba or Sony that only have one specific problem, and chances are that's what is wrong. I usually tell people not to waste their money on fixing Magnavox. We call them Maggot-Box. They used to be good when NAP owned them. They gave techs all kinds of help and service literature....They were great. Now a days...The absolute worst company out there!! MOST repair shops won't touch them. They just don't hold up to repairs.
I had the exact same problem with my Magnavox TV. No sound and no video but the power light was lit. I finaly gave up on finding a solution on the web and called in a repair tech. He fixed my TV in less than 30 minutes. You can find the solution here.
The TV is in some kind of protection mode, the blinking LED show you an error code.
Try pressing 062596 and then press menu button (do these in quick
motion, don't let them to time out while keying)...see what happens
I also heard that this problem appeared with some people because the of
the burnt fuse in the TV. To fix that it has to be taken to the tech
And yes I also heard about this issue many times, seems like this TV set is very popular with this kind of problem.
