    I have already cleaned the front panel. I was informed to replace the switches from the front panel to cure this problem.



    Where can I order a front panel replacement???

  • marsg Sep 24, 2008

    Thank you for your input. I bought new switches and I will change out these switches on the front panel first, but this weekend I will do this duty.

    I went and found a store that sold PCB components and replaced all the switches on the front panel board. All switches were replaced and now the TV works as good as new now ($5.00 investment). Thanks!!!!!

No sound from tv, dvd, cable. Speaker test does work. Sound stopped suddenly when channel was changed.


What does this mean: "when channel was changed"? TV channel?? Would that mean a remote command was issued? How about FM (no external cabling)?

Bought it used without a manual. when turned on the channel is set to a channel that we dont receive. cant figure out how to set a new start channel.


You can access the on-screen menu by pressing the Vol+ and Vol- buttons together on the front of the TV . Alternatively use a remote and press Menu to access the menu (not all low end remotes will match the feature) An exact replacement remote is available here: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&uuid=12878563535890&smodel=MS3252S&brand_pn=MAGNAVOX_MS3252S . Then use the channel up and down buttons on the TV to select menu items. If using the remote use the play, fast forward, fast rewind back and pause to go through the menus. Press Menu to go back one level in the menus.

Once you have the menu up, go to the bottom of the list to Install. Select Tuner Mode (the options are Antenna, Cable and Auto) and make sure that is set correctly. Next select Auto Program to look for all available channels or Edit Channels to change the channels you will see when you change the channel with the Channel up and down buttons.

Please note that the TV only has an NTSC (analog) tuner and must be used with a set-top box to see any channels other than the remaining low power stations that have not switched to digital.

Once you have a new channel list, the TV will remember the last state it was in. (Please note that the A/V inputs are reached by pressing Channel up or down past the tuner channels.

I hope this helps.

Getting a specific channel on the TV without using a remote


Usually if you go into the setup menu, there is an option to allow you to either "scan" for a channel, or "input" a channel. In this case, select "input" and see if the TV will allow you to press the up and down channel buttons and go to a specific channel. If so, when you get to channel 4, press the "add this channel" option (or whatever the menu option says) and you should then be able to go to channel 4 using the buttons on the front without skipping over it.

Same thing... suddenly will not "allow" one channel to be seen


go to tv menu, do an "autoprogram" and it will select all available channels.
You can also do an add/remove channel and manually delete the channels you know you don't have.
You can also change your tv from air to CATV (cable) On cable tv you can still get all the air channels and Fox just the numbers will be different, but you may have a better signal

How do I tune TV channels on my Sharp CX48G4 TV without a remote control? There is no tuning / settings panel on the TV itself which is very strange.


press the preset button on the front panel once then (TV should be on) the on the screen there should be words the likes of (Auto VHF 1 60.00mhz) now the Auto stands for auto tuning VHF stands for its frequency where its going to search the 1 stands for the channel where its going to start with 60.00mghz stands for the lowest signal to which its going to start now that you have understood all that just press the volume up button then it will automaticly locate all your working channels leave till it stops for when does it will start from channel 1 to which I believe that you be able to see the channel working so press the up button on the channel button to check the rest of your channels hope this will solve your problem!

Hi! I posted a few days ago about my elderly neighbors TV being disconnected from Dish and now she gets no signal on all channels. She has a TruTech Model (from back of TV) 008-09-0119. I disconnected the...


What kind of antenna is she using? If she is using an Over The Air antenna that was supplied by Dish it would be best to buy another type of antenna.
Please post back with her antenna type and the zip code you live in so I can help you further.

Switching singnal


If you are using an antenna or regular cable without a cable box, put the tv on an analog channel. Go into the menu. Select the middle icon at the top of the screen. Go down to the TV/CABLE line. Select either TV (for antenna) or CABLE (for regular cable) on the right. Go down to AUTO CH MEMORY and press the volume+ (right arrow) button. Wait for the channel search screen to clear. Check all of your channels using the channel up button until you come back to the channel you started on.
