Our Philips Magnavox Smart Series TV Shuts Off

It is possible it could be a switch but this is usually after extensive use. If it does the same with the remote control chances are it's not the switch. These sets had problems with the vertical circuit as well. I've fixed a lot of these with vertical problems. It should not run but about $80-$100 to repair if it is a vertical problem. These sets have a lot of safety cicuits as well so it could be a horizontal circuit problem as well or power supply. Kind of hard to say without a good troubleshooting. Thanks

I have a philips magnavox tv with the original remote. closed caption constantly (writing script)comes on tv screen, even though the remote has a cc button,i press it until cc off comes on, the cc goes off...

You're not doing anything wrong. Your TV is somehow turning the cc on "all by itself". Some bit is getting flipped inside the TV, turning the cc on.

either that or there is some sort of rf or ir interference near the TV that is mimicking the CC button on the remote.

Have you pressed the cc button on the remote, verified the cc is "off" on the TV and then removed the batteries from the remote for a while to make sure there isn't something hinky with the remote???
