Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV

1 Answer

TV wont come/stay on

I know this is going to be hard because I just fell and messed up my knee so It is almost impossible for me to get up and look for model numbers etc. on the tv., but if you would be so kind as to take a stab at this problem I would be so grateful. Problem: Philips TV. 27" I think, approx 4-5 years old. For the last couple of weeks the tv has been difficult to get to turn on. When turned on at first the screen is just black, then after a couple of minutes there is a snippit of sound then nothing. If turned off and back on the same thing happens. Each time the tv is turned on the duration of sound gets longer untill after 5 or 6 times there is a flicker of picture. Again each time the tv is turned off then back on the duration of the picture is longer untill it shows the channel number and then after 3 or 4 more times it will stay on and work perfectly untill it is turned off. My solution had been to just leave it on untill last night when I forgot and turned it off. Today i can't get it to do anything except when I turn it on sometimes there is the usuall kind of thump sound it makes everytime it is turned and then it ticks for a few seconds then stops. If you use the up/down buttons it ticks for a few seconds again each time a button is pressed whether on the remote or on the tv. If you know something to do I would really appreciate it. I am going stir crazy having to just sit here. Thanks so much. Helene

My TV wont turn on

Need a model number. But I already know the problem. This is not an easy fix as told on You Tube. Under warranty would replace the panel (TV Screen). Replacing LEDs are next to impossible. I fixed these with warranty. Thanks for asking, Matt of Martins TV.

The part that holds the needle fell out of my Babylock Denim Pro II sewing machine. There is also a wire that the thread went behind that fell out. Can you tell me how to fix it?

Not being able to see it is next to impossible to help you. Do you have the parts, it sounds like you lost the needle thread guide, the part that holds the needle has me baffled as to what you mean exactly. Go to and see if you can see your parts. As to you installing them with no experience, I would advise you to get a friend to help or your dealer. You have a good machine and you do not want to mess it up.

Juki ddl 555 knee lifter is not lifting the foot. How can I fix it?

I imagine that it is the mechanical knee lift that you actually lift with your knee? Sometimes the screw that holds the knee lift rod comes loose a little and starts to slide in the holder. Sit on the floor where you can see the underneath of your table and use a wrench or vise grip to loosen the bracket that holds your knee lift bar with the pad on it. Move the bar to the left and retighten the screw and I think you will be ok. Sometimes if there is too much oil in your pan or you have moved the machine and some of the oil spilled out, a little oil gets out of the pan onto the bar and makes it start to slip. If that doesn't work we'll try something else.

The brake pads fell off my stationary bike because the nuts fell off the bolts so we reattached bolt but don't know how to position the brake pads so they will stay on-i am recovering from knee surgery and...

The brake pads only need to be lined up with the braking surface to work. As far as keeping the bolts in place I would suggest a drop of loctite (blue) on the threads of the bolts to keep the nuts in place.

Replaced oil pan and oil cranks wont fire

These cars have a crank shaft position sensor, if it has become undone it will not start. It is connected by two wires that go to a harness. Also if the crankshaft pully is somehow put on in a different position then when it came off (which would be pretty hard to do considering it is keyed. Hard but not impossible, with a big enough hammer and a lot of determination one can mess up just about anything I guess... ;-) that would not allow the sensor to line up with the area it expects to see when it gets near TDC on cyl 1 and that would make it not work also.

Remember these cars have distributorless ignition and therefore this is how it knows when to fire each spark plug and if it is not aligned or if the sensor is missing then the spark will not be there.

Good Luck.

I have a rainbow of color about the screen. The TV fell out of the stand and now the color pattern is messed up. It fell face down.

sounds like a degaussing (magnetizing) problem.could be that the posistor inside the TV set got loose when the tv fell down. If you have experience soldering electronic components, you should be able to fix it by re-soldering. Otherwise, call a tv tech to do it.

Ignition switch 2005 pontiac sunfire

I had this problem on my daughters 2004 sunfire. I found a new switch on ebay and tried to do it myself. I found a website that had instructions. I dont remember what it was but you can find it if you look hard enough. I just followed the instructions. I had to remove the cover under the steering wheel where your knees are. then I tried everything to pop it out but couldn't. It said to drill out a pin(key type thing) so I really looked at the ignition switch(the new switch helped me see how it worked better) and found what they were talking about then just started drilling, I admitt that I thought I was really messing the thing up but I was out of options at that point, I broke about 4 or 5 bits because of the impossible angle, oh yeh I bought a right angle drill to do the job. I just found the artical. You only need this if your key wont turn the ignition. I forgot about that. Well give it a try its not as hard as it seems and I did a little damage but it didnt affect the ignition operation.
