Open Question

Can no longer get to "menu" screen on Magnavox tv

Have a 15yr old Magnavox tv, model# RS1966 B421.  My remote is able to turn the tv on/off, change channels, but the "menu" key no longer works.  The "menu" screen no longer is displayed, so we can't add/remove cable channels, switch from cable input to video input, etc.  Do not believe the issue is the remote (replaced the remote and saw the same problem).  It was working a week ago when we left on vacation and wasn't when we came back.  The tv itself has little in the way of manual controls; power, channels, volume (and a couple display and status buttons that don't seem to work).  Any ideas on how to get the "menu" display working again?

We had this problem with a 28PW6515. The control would work for 30 seconds after switching on, then nothing. It was diagnosed as the "glue chip" which handles all the control functions. About £200 to fix it as it's a surface mount chip.

Magnavox input change


If the remote is its original one, there should be a button marked 'TV/AV'. Press this button to select inputs.

Magnavox model # FP4630 W104 manual


GOOGLE THE MODEL NUMBER WITH MANUAL AFTER IT IF YOU NEED THAT.

In the TV menu make sure under audio speakers are switched on.

When you try to change the volume do you get a display on screen?

If the vol buttons on set work the issue is with the remote itself.

Let me know as much as you can so I can help

go into your menu and access the closed caption modes. someone has accidently put your tv in the "text" mode. turning off the closed caption feature will correct this.

Philips 50" flat screen - Closed captioning won't turn off


on my magnavox it was the verizon fios remote that enabled it by accident (it is tuned to control the tv) however it was a cc button represented by the * on the remote that i had to select to change the cc. this didn't make it go away so i just pressed buttons i used the "Aspect" button represented by the # it changed the ratio and the message went away. I usually only use the fios remote to turn the tv on and off but this must be some whacky override that comes from the fios remote.

No remote how to turn off cc


You might try a Magnavox brand universal remote. Get one with a "menu" button. Often they give nearly complete control on a Magnavox brand TV. Otherwise, the only real solution is to purchase the exact original remote. There are many vendors on the Internet selling replacements, but often the costs are ridiculous.

Magnavox with pic tube tv skips over channel 3..goes from 2 to 4


You are right about the auto-programming, but Magnavox no longer has the original remote.

For my answer to be right, you must have posted this question to the EXACT CORRECT model # of your Magnavox TV - 27ms343s:

Press TV on your Verizon remote, and then press "0" and "3"

If that fails:
Press MENU to see the TV’s on-screen
menu. In the menu, use VOL.+/_ and
CH.+/_ to make adjustments or selections.
You can press MENU on either the
remote control or the front of the TV to
access or remove the menu.
