philips magnavox 32' crt tv has no power

lonbFebruary 12, 2009

My 10 yr old Philips Magnavox 32" CRT TV Model TS3254 C101 does not power up no more. There is no power at all, no green light, no sound, no picture. It doesn't do a thing when trying to turn it on. It gets power through the cord. The fuse looks good. I see no melted/burned up resistors or capacitors. There are very faint burn marks by some resistors. This has been a great tv until now. What could be the problem? And could I fix it?

Thanks,

Lon

IF YOU CHECKED THE FUSES ALREADY , THEN IT MUST BE A OPEN COMPONENT , MOST LIKLY YOUR FLYBACK AND YOUR HORIZONTAL TRANSISTOR M WHICH ARE THE PARTS WITH MORE STRESS , BUT IF YOUR LED ON THE FRON T IS NOT ON . DO YOU HEAR A RERAY CLICKING WHEN YOU PLUG IN THE TV . OR WHEN YOU PRESS THE POWER BUTTON .?

Marco,
Thank you for the reply. There is no LED light. There is no relay clinking when plugging in or when the power button is turned on. It does nothing. I've read about the flyback going bad, what does that look like and can I test it with a multimeter? Can I test the horizontal transistor M also?
Thanks,
Lon

Well I guess this TV will be a giant door stop now. I wish I would be able to fix it but I guess that's not in the cards. Thanks anyways,
Lon

Hi Guys,

Looks like my TV has a similar problem that marco6171 was describing..

I have a 32" Philips Magnavox (TS3258 C101), Chassis Model 32D700-7570, Manufactured Dec '98

I have been using this for last 10 years, and it stopped working suddenly.

When I turn on the TV (front button), nothing happens, no green LED, no sound, no picture.. As long as it is plugged into the wall, it makes very low audible tic tic tic sound (is it relay click ?).

Any suggestions on what I can do to fix it...
