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.

Trouble with 360 and hdtv


The cable your refering too are called Component leads.

The red and white are for your audio and the remainder are the video. All you need to do is connect the component leads matching up all the colour in the correct ports then using your av/source button change the tv to component
You will still have to connect the red and white audio cable to the tv as well.

that should sort your xbox out.

Best setup for Xbox 360 for Sony 32" Tube WEGA tv


Hi, Not sure whether you are kidding or not. You don't mention the tv model so I will try to help using a KV-32FS100 as an example. You really only have 2 choices assuming you have a current model xbox 360. The component cable that comes with the xbox has 6 connectors, a green, blue, red, yellow on one part and a white and red on the other part. On the back of the tv below and to the right of the s video connector are inputs labeled Y, Pb and Pr and are colored Y is green Pb is Blue and Pr is red if they aren't colored that is the correct order. Don't connect the yellow to anything. The red and white on the other part of the cable go directly to the right of these connections. It will say audio and L and R they should also be colored but if not white is L and red is R. There is also a small switch at the xbox end of the cablewhich you need to slide to HDTV. Once you are powered up don't forget to enter the setup menu on the xbox and select the settings for your tv. Again without knowing the model most wega tvs limit the component input to 480p which was the limit of a dvd. I hope this is helps.
