    My TV is a Magnavox 55P8241.

    Whenever I switch to either the av1 or CVI (component) imputs the tv will immediately turn off and the power button will start to blink twice. I've disconnected all the imputs to the tv and it still has the same problem. on the av1 channel I can briefly see the movie before it turns off and the picture is fine. strangely enough the av2 channel works perfectly. Someone please help with this.

    Is there any kind of smell coming from the TV, burning or other wise. It sounds like the 1st video port is shorting out. I would check that first. Since the second input seems fine I would definately look for an electrical short.

    No smell that I can detect, but I've been a little stuffed up lately.
