    Is this a common failure mode for a Magnavox 25" TV? (Chassis number at
    another location, sorry.)

    It "magically" turned itself on, and wouldn't turn off, either with the
    remote or at the set. After being unplugged and re-plugged, it won't turn
    on, with the remote or at the set.

    Regular email replies won't work, but the address described in the sig will.

    Sounds like the common liquid damage to the front buttons or ir sensor from
    some careless person cleaning the glass.

    John,
    What we need here is any kind of a "hint" as to what television you
    have.....
    Year built
    Model number
    Chassis number
    When you reply with the above information be certain to include your initial
    troubleshooting and testing results. Meter readings in the PS and
    elsewhere, along with any pertinent visual inspection results would also be
    helpful..
    For the above you will obviously need to remove the back cover of the
    television, dust off your DMM, and actually do some technical
    troubleshooting...... you are our eyes and ears. The more information you
    provide, the better suggestions and replies you will obtain.

    Thanks -- I will do that. What I was initially looking for was to see if it
    was a familiar [Magnavox] happening.
