Can't turn tv on or off except by unplugging it. Then we have no control - cannot change channel or volume and menu button doesn't work. When on it seems like a commercial:
"Why your next tv should be this one" comes on the screen and then goes through a description of every menu feature. Do not have original remote control.

if the tv width is ok try entering to service menu (do not use remote control) as follow: 1) turn the set on. 2) press the menu button and hold it down while pressing the power button. 3) while holding down the menu button release the power button and press the volume + button. 4) The screen will display a one line menu, on the left the parameter P00, and on the right the value of the parameter V00 5) release buttons. 6) using the volume + button change the right parameter until 76 7) using the channel down button change the left parameter until 06 (vertical size) 8) whith the volume + or volume - adjust the screen size. 9) when your tv is OK back to parameter 00 using the channel up button. 10) press menu button. and trouble solved.
Did extensive checking and finally found out that the remote for Magnavox TB100MW9 analog/digital converter is not made for volume control. The channel changing buttons are half-way operable--sometimes yes, sometimes no--and to think they call this a remote! Therefore you must keep the other TV ready remote that you have been using (tape them together probably) for volume and mostly channel change. I know what Magnavox can do with these remotes - and you know how much more Magnavox I will be buying in the future. Nada, none,---from a very disappointed, frustrated customer.
On this set, the volume buttons are the same as the menu button on your remote. The two channel buttons work the same as the scrolling arrows on your remote. It will take some practice, but to turn on the menu, press both volume buttons at once. Then practice using the volume controls to scroll. Once you have the hang of it, you can simply use these four buttons the same way you would have used your remote. If you cannot figure it out on your own, come back here, let me know, and I will sit down and map it out completely for you.
Well there is still a problem with the TV. I found that by unplugging the power cable that the digital channels worked. But, when I turned the TV on today the problem had returned, I had to take out the power cable again!
