Channel Changing Problem with Maganox 20MT133S

I turned my television on and it keeps jumping channels as if the remote buttons were stuck. This is not the case. I removed the batteries from the remote but the tv keeps changing channels, the volume is going up and down, and when I turned it off it turned back on by itself. I tried unplugging it but the problem continues. I need to the tv to stay on 3 so that I can view my cable programs.

SOURCE: 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.

I just found a solution elsewhere on this site...
In order to make the Demo Mode stop, you should press Volume Up and Channel Up together, and hold for four seconds. This worked for my mom's tv, I hope it works for you, mooone (and everyone else, too).

My tv model #27F500T is changing stations all by it self


Hi,

the stations are changing by itself on your TV because the channel button on the TV is partially stuck in, that is why it keeps changing all by itself. This same thing may also happen to the remote control of the TV if the channel button of the remote stuck in and pointed at the TV.

Use your finger to rub the buttons on the TV, especially the volume control button. Do same on the remote and most definitely problem should be solved.

Please give me a feedback if solution does not work for you.

Yours sincerely.

Channel keeps changing on its own


things to try:

1 look for a remote stuck in a couch(or other near place) that is barely peaking out enough to change the channel.

2. Check that the channel up or down button is not stuck on the tv and or any remote that is set up for it.

3. Find the tv's infrared sensor and cover it with your hand or tape. If the channel changing stops then something is emitting infrared that is causing it to channel hop (occasionally security systems can cause this to happen) also some kids toys. Anything that emits infrared light basically.

once you have found the source (neighbor with the same brand tv for example) or a remote with the cushion pressing the button for you. then you will should be good.

Tv changes channels when turned on.


Be sure your remote hasn't got a button stuck down which is changing channels. If not, take the batteries out of the remote. If this stops the channel changing there is probably some conductve material stuck across the circuit board
inside the remote. If this is the case you have to check inside the remote by openning it up.

Channel keeps changing


It sounds like a stuck button or switch. What happens when you hit the channel DOWN, does it still keep scrolling down?
Is this with or without the remote?
Have you tried it with the remote and or the TV?

Let me know whether you are changing the channels with the remote or the buttons on the tv and I can try to give you a couple more suggestions.
