Question about Philips Magnavox 15MF400T 15 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Menu problem I have a Philips split screen TV the menu will not come up by using the remote or by holding down the the up down volume button on the TV set. It will also, not display channel #s. I can scroll up and down but I do not know what channel I on. I'm assuming it is a programming issue I can correct, when I can open the menu. Any suggestions?

The first thing to try when you lose any feature or function is to unplug the set from it's power source for a minute to allow reset. The second thing to look closely at is to see if any button on the set or remote is engaged, meaning stuck. Sometimes a button gets lodged beneath it's surrounding framework and blocks certain commands from operating. If these two things fail to correct it, then it's time for a repairman, which, believe me, we're seeing alot of these lcd sets in for repair even only a year or two old. Most have power or screen issues, but yours sounds like there is a failure on the main p.c.b. This board controls audio/video processing and all information sent to the screen and speakers. Good luck with reset because defective replacement boards are becoming more and more numerous these days, Russmann.

Toshiba tv is frozen on screen that says set parental control pin


Disconnect the AC power for at least one minute to reset the clock.
Adjust the volume to the minimum using the Volume down button on the front of the unit.
Press and hold the Volume down button on the front of the unit and the 0 button on the remote control at the same time, holding them down for at least 10 seconds.
The user menu will appear with the V-Chip cursor blinking.
Press the ENTER key on the remote control and the NEW PASSWORD menu will appear.
Enter your new password.

The V-Chip is bypassed by holding the zero key on the original remote hand unit, and at the sane time holding down the volume down on the front of the TV set. This should reset the oide so you can enter a new one.
To get more details check this site. Do a search by entering the brand name of your TV by its search box at the top right of the display window.

Have a model # G35830WK that is in parental control how do we get it off


Hello
You should have its original remote control to unlock this set. If you ahven't one, just try to get it from any of your friends or relateives, who owns the same type of set. After unlock, you can use any other universal remote control. To unlock it:
Most RCA TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.
  1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.

Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.
