Philips Magnavox

I have a Philips Magnavox Model 7P5441 C101 Television Chasis Number PTV780-AH01 and when you try to turn it on there is a wire burn smell, so I took the back panel off and look into the board and had my wife to try to power it on with the remote and there is a round ceramic disk capacitor that sparks and is burned through.

I got a magnifying glass and looked on the board and at the capacitor there is a number C811 it looks like or it could be CB11, it is the only Brown Round Ceramic disk Capacitor there on the right board when looking in from the back.

I tried to call and get a schematic but can get no one to help me, I would appreciate very much if you could help. I was going to purchase a capacitor off of the internet that looks like it but I do not want to purchase the wrong one, and also if you do not mind in which way does it go in as the side with the numbers, I think they go toward the front of the Television correct?

Please send help to my email address would you please, Thanks Again.

Thank You
God Bless

RE: Philips Magnavox

After the above Television went out I went and purchased another one Just like it and it works good but the color is very bad on it, I tried to adjust with the remote and got it somewhat better and then I took the back off to adjust and it got a little bit more better but it is still bad, is there anything I can do to make it better? Model: 8P4844C101 Chasis Number: PTV810-AH01
