Question about Philips Magnavox 20MT133S 20" TV

11 Answers

Magnavox 17" Color Flat Screen TV (Model 17MF200V/17)

This screen is connected to an Xbox 360 game system. When I turn on the monitor the background is white and flashes the word "aging" in red in the center of the screen. What is wrong and how can it be fixed?

    This problem appeared several weeks ago and since then the tv has been unplugged/disconnected from power. I plugged it in this morning and the problem is still there.

  • gweist Dec 08, 2008

    TV is a Magnavox Color LCD 17" 17MF200/17

  • gweist Dec 08, 2008

    TV is model 17MF200V / 17

  • gweist Dec 08, 2008

    As mentioned before, the tv has been disconnected from the xbox system and from the power source for over 2 weeks. However, the issue still exists.

  • gweist Dec 08, 2008

    Still need help on this...

  • gweist Dec 09, 2008

    Okay, I've tried "resetting" the monitor twice now...leaving it unplugged from the power. Each time when I've turned it back on the same white background flashing "AGING" in red appears. None of the buttons on the monitor respond (i.e. menu, AV, and volume), so I am not able to manually do anything.

    What else can I try to resolve this issue?

  • gweist Dec 09, 2008

    Thanks "masterexpert", but I do not have an issue with the xbox 360. The issue I described is with my Magnavox 17" flat screen LCD monitor.

You may experience this problem if
Your Xbox 360 console is connected to a widescreen TV or monitor.
Your Xbox 360 console is configured to use a widescreen resolution. For example, this problem can occur if the Xbox console is configured to use 720p or 1080i resolution

To fix this problem, you need to configure the Xbox 360 console to use a non-widescreen resolution such as 480p. After we configure the Xbox console to use a non-widescreen resolution, the widescreen television or monitor will stretch the image to fill the screen.

To configure the Xbox 360 console to use 480p resolution, follow these steps:
Start your console without a disc in the disc tray.
In the System section of the Xbox Dashboard, select Console Settings, and then press the A button.
In the Console Settings area, select Display, and then press the A button.
In the Display Settings area, select HDTV Settings, and then press the A button.
In the HDTV Settings area, select 480p, and then press the A button.
When you receive a confirmation message, select Yes, keep these settings.
Good Luck

Hi, Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Your problem comes from your TV and not your Xbox.
I can't find any solution to this problem. I suggest you reset your TV to factory settings, via MENU then RESET.

If this doesn't work, it is probably an internal problem. In that case you will have to contact Magnavox:

Thank you.

As mentioned above, the Xbox 360 has been plagued by a series of hardware problems, most commonly represented by the now infamous "red ring of death"--the three flashing red lights that the console displays when a major hardware malfunction has occurred. Microsoft has yet to confirm the reason for the problem, but it's widely attributed to overheating and poor airflow within the console's innards. Since admitting to the problem in July 2007, Microsoft has extended the original 90-day warranty on all newly purchased 360s to a full year. Additionally, any Xbox 360 that suffers from a hardware failure marked by three red flashing lights is now covered for three years from the original purchase date.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, it would seem that somehow your TV unit is in a function/feature of the Service Mode. Normally in most Philips/Magnavox models, pressing on the "Power" button of the remote should allow you to exit this condition. Additionally, you can try unplugging the unit from the mains for a couple of hours should revert the unit back to factory default.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

    The problem was posted under a "20MT133S" model which is a conventional CRT Philips/Magnavox.

    Based on your latest post that it is an LCD type TV, then the displayed message "aging" pertains to a still image being
    burned into the pixel array which is not a standard activity when the TV is already in use. This points to a firmware glitch that requires an authorized Service Center intervention.

    1. Turn off your Xbox 360 console, disconnect and reconnect all
      cables, and then turn your Xbox 360 console back on.

    2. Turn off the console,
      and then disconnect any connected accessories, such as controllers,
      Xbox 360 memory units, and the Xbox 360 hard disk. With these
      accessories removed, restart the console to see whether the problem
      persists and to pinpoint whether it is the console or an accessory.

    3. If you continue to experience the problem, contact Xbox Customer Service.

How should I hook up my xbox to the back of the television using the red, white, and yellow wires? It is hooked up but I am not getting any audio. Thank you.


First make sure your video cable is set to TV not HDTV

Then plug the 3 RCA cables into the color coded slots on the TV. Make sure you aren't using the red cable from the component RGB but are using the red cable for sound (next to the white one).

Then, if you still have no picture, start the console using the controllers Xbox button and hold "Y" and "RT" until the console restarts. this will reset the video settings on the 360 to default.

Follow this guide if you get confused:
http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/how-to/audio-video-devices/connect-xbox-360-console-tv.aspx

and for the video reset about halfway down the page:

When I turned on my system, it had system error contact xbox customer support. There is a red light flashing on the bottom right, around the power button. I don't know what to do. Please help.


Some of us suddenly when we turn on our Xbox 360 console one day we got one red light flashes on the ROL (Ring of Light) around the Xbox 360 power button, and we got an Error message appearing on the TV screen "System error" also might occur with any error code like E66, E67, E68, E71, E74 or E77, all the same.
systemerrore74.jpg
When you get any of these messages appearing on your screen with one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.

oneredlight.jpg
So, first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more.

If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you.

The Xbox 360 console might even keep giving you the same error code even after you remove the hard drive so it will then appear to be a fault with your Xbox 360 console not the hard drive & also in a case like this we need to contact Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the console.

Xbox 360 E73 error. What do I do?


Turn on unit until the red light flashes and the error code(E 73) shows up on the screen. Next insert toothpicks in the back of the console(while unit is running) into the cooling fans, this is to suppose to overheat the console and start two red lights flashing. Turn off console when this happens(unplug all cords from console) and turn the system back on.

1 flashing red ring


The lower-right quadrant of the Ring of Light flashes red on the front of your Xbox 3602.gif console. You also receive the following error message in multiple languages on your television screen or monitor:
System Error2.gif. Contact Xbox Customer Support. This message begins with an error code in the format "Exx," where xx is a two-digit number.

The following indicator will flash on and off repeated on the front panel of your Xbox 360 console:
Collapse this imageExpand this image 1rol.gif
If one red light is flashing and you receive a different error message2.gif or error code than those that were described previously or you don’t receive an error message or code, your console may be experiencing a different issue. In this case, see "References/links."

This problem occurs when your Xbox 360 console experiences a hardware failure.

  1. Turn off your console, disconnect and reconnect all cables, and then turn on your console.
  2. If an Xbox Hard Drive2.gif is attached to your console, turn off your console, and then remove the Xbox Hard Drive. Turn on your console, and test for the error. If the error does not reoccur, turn off your console and reattach the Xbox Hard Drive. Run alternate additional tests by having the Xbox Hard Drive connected and disconnected to see whether the error occurs only when the Xbox Hard Drive is connected. For more information if the on-screen alphanumeric error is E67, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 917874 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917874/ ) One of the lights on the Ring of Light on the front of your Xbox 360 console flashes red and you receive one of the following error codes and message: "E67, or E68, or E69. System Error. Contact Xbox Customer Support"
  3. If an Xbox Memory Unit (MU) is plugged in to your console, turn off your console, and then remove the Memory Unit. Turn on your console again, and test for the error. If the error does not reoccur, turn off your console and reinsert the MU. Run alternate tests by having the MU connected and disconnected to see whether the error occurs only when the MU is connected.
  4. If this problem continues to occur, contact Xbox Customer Service. Note If the agent cannot help you resolve this problem, you must return your console to Microsoft for repair.

How to connect my xbox 360 to my pc


There is this device, that should completely bypass your computer, and hook the 360 directly to your Computer Monitor.
However if you want to to use your computer to capture video, all u need is a video capture card for video and then a Stereo Y-Adapter. This is so you can plug in the red and white (Stereo) plugs and get audio. Unfortunately, capture cards wont give you the best frame rate and clarity but should do ok.

If you can still HEAR sound, but can't see. Check your Audio Video Cable.

It's the colorful one (red, white, yellow) (red, blue green, white, red)

Make sure the connections are secure into the back of the TV as well as the connection to the back of the Xbox 360.

Hi there,

The TV screen or monitor remains black when you start an Xbox 360 console.

This behavior may occur with or without a game disc in the disc tray. The console appears to be on because the green power light illuminates and the fan continues to operate. However, the screen remains black.
