Question about Philips Magnavox 20MT133S 20" TV

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.

I have a sceptre model x9g-naga v flat screen monitor that I am trying to connect my x box 360 to. It allows me to play games, but when I put in a movie, it says, secure hdcp link not found. I was told...


A simple work around that could be able to fix it is by turning on the xbox, waiting until the screen showed the logo and the error message "secure hdcp link not found" then unplugging the hdmi cable from the back of the xbox and plugging it back in. Of course having to do this each time you wanted to turn on your Xbox would be annoying. (I have not tested this using VGA cable hookup though)

If you are asking how to change your Xbox to 480i then you will need simply use the red, yellow, and white cable as it defaults to 480i. (not possible with your monitor I don't think)
  1. On your console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Console Settings.
  3. Select Display.
  4. Select HDTV Settings.
  5. Select the appropriate screen resolution for your TV or monitor. 480p,720p,1080i,1080p, 1024x768, 1280x1024.

I am assuming from your TV that you are using VGA? With VGA then your system is going to automatically choose the best display for your monitor. You can go into the display settings as described above to adjust your display settings.

Hope this helps.

Hi when i go on my xbox my screen goes all fuzzy and everything and all u see is big lines down the screen if u help me i would be very gratful


There may be a problem with your video cable. If you have a friend that has an xbox 360 then try and use their video cable with your xbox. If you have the same problem then try connecting your xbox 360 to another tv or monitor. If the problem is still there then your xbox has a problem. If their video cable worked then it was your video cable that was the problem. If their tv/monitor worked then it is your tv/monitor that is the problem.

My Magnavox 17in LCD TV (17MF200V/17) shows message ''Attention OSD Main Menu locked. cannot use any functions on tv. i.e., volume , menu, etc


It means that some kind of parental control feature has locked you out of the On Screen Display menu. You will have to consult your manual (possibly online) to figure out how to reset the password.
Although it is possible some other kind of malfunction could cause you to lose menu control, this is the most likely cause.
