Question about Philips Magnavox MT1905B 19" TV

5 Answers

Demo mode I can't get my 19" Magnavox T.V. out of demo mode. I continuously hit the menu button on the remote but I can't get it to do anything. I've even changed the batteries in the remote and tried; it did no good. I got one solution sent to me that said either the painter or the micorprocessor Ic would have to be changed. I'm not familiar with this. Is there anything else I can try?

    It has been unplugged for at least 24 hrs, actually a lot more than 24 hrs because thats the only way I can kill the power to the set.

    Not sure what I should try next.

I just went through this trial and error and for my 32" Magnavox it was holding both the volume up and volume down buttons in.

My two year old put my mag27 into demo mode in about two seconds but it took me about two hours too figure out how to get it out of demo mode. I don't recall the exact order to push them, but I was able to restore the tv to normal operation by pushing the power button and one of the volume buttons, I would try the power and volume+ buttoms together. I won't dare try it again fearing never getting it out of demo mode! (These are the front of tv buttons; not on the remote) Hope this gets it!

The brand name Samsung is in the middle of the screen. I wish to remove it and with no manual I do not know what to do. Also there are other messages fliping on and off the screen too.

  2. Note: If the "Plug & Play" option is grayed out and can't be selected this means that you are not on the TV (Coax (RF)) source. Please return to step 1.

  1. Follow the on screen instructions. When the options comes up select "Home" instead of "Shop".
  2. Finish going through the plug and play option and your TV will no longer be in Shop Mode or Store Demo.

I have a 1996 magnavox tv that is in demo mode and you can only turn the tv off by unplugging the tv


Those older Magnavox sets had a demo mode available from the on screen menu. Go to the menu and disable the demo mode, that will fix the trouble. When in the demo mode you will have no control over your set by remote or front panel controls. You can still address the menu though to turn off the demo mode.

27'' TV will not turn off demo mode


My ancient TV/VCR Quasar combo had the same problem...and I don't have the original remote control. But holding down the "play" button for five seconds did the trick. Perhaps your TV is similar. I also read that holding down the "menu" button works as well. Hope this helps.
