Hello, the grey screen could be due to a missing 220Volt source which feeds the color (RBG cathodes)inside the CRT(picture tube). When this happens the beam current inside the CRT goes high in a matter of second, thus triggering the beam current protection circuit(blinking green light)shutting down the TV. Repairing the secondary voltage source is necessary to get the TV working normal, a good technician should be able to repair it for between 80 to 100 dollars parts included, except a picture tube, which could be also the cause of the problem(K-A shorts).
IF I understand you correctly, the VCR, Satellite, etc is connected using an RF modulator/coaxial cable wire going into Antenna in
IF this is true, then you have an AV IN port (red, yellow, white) free on the back. Just connect the red, yellow, white from the out of the DVD - you can use 1 or 2 - just remember which one you used; and connect it to the AV IN on the back of the TV.
THEN press ch down on the TV remote until you get to "AV1" - it is below channel 2; double check DVD player to make DVD is playing and voila!
I have a Smart Series 32" Phillips-Magnovox TV I bought april '99. Around July 4 weekend 2008 it decided it just does not want to come on any more! Was working just fine before that...I can not find my manual. Any suggestions?
You may have filed this one in the wrong place. A maggie MS3652S is a 36" crt based model, with a L01.1UAC chassis. But you start off your explanation as if it were a projector TV. Check the model and series again and let me know if I can help...

It looks like that your TV is overheating. Most of the TV's have a fail safe so if any case they are over heating it will shut off so it doesn't damage the TV. i would advise that you seek help of a professional in your area.
