Phillips Magnavox / 37in lcd tv 37mf331d/ bad power supply

Columbus, OH, US Review updated:

Approxamatly 2 years after we purchased our 37in LCD TV 37MF331D at Sams Club. We noticed a burning smell so we turned the unit off. It never came back on. We did some research and relised that this tv and seveal others made by Magnavox have put capasitors on thepower supply board that are not appropriate for tho load they must carry and eventually burn up! You can replace them but in our case the board was damaged also. So we are stuck with an $1100.00 paper weight until we can find a replacement board. So far we have not been able to find the part. I will never buy their product again.

    I have had power supplies go out on both of my TVs:

    37" Magnovox (Philips) and 50" Philips...

    There should be a recall on the power supplies or a class against them as they know this is an issue...
