Philips-Magnavox 25in TV 25TS54-C121 Power On Problem

Posted by jamesutz (My Page) on

My kid's TV (Philips-Magnavox 25" TV 25TS54-C121) went out yesterday. When we try to turn it on, either with the remote, or with the power button, we hear a click, and then the TV clicks again, turning itself back off after about a half a second.

Does anybody here know how to repair this issue?

Thanks in advance,

The least expensive thing to try is to unplug it from the power source, at the wall perhaps, for several minutes, 10-20 perhaps. Then plug it back in and try the switches again. (I've an older, cheaper, WalMart TV that requires this treatment two or three times a year for the last six years.)
