Great Sound and Menu Option, But Black Screen

Dear Support - I was recently given an older Magnavox TV Model TS2560 and the sound and menu button work great, but the picture is completely black. Even when I disconnect it from the cable outlet and just have it plugged in, I hear the "snow sound" but it's still black. Any suggestions and thanks for your expert advice. Robin

In the TV menu make sure under audio speakers are switched on.

When you try to change the volume do you get a display on screen?

If the vol buttons on set work the issue is with the remote itself.

Let me know as much as you can so I can help

Whenever I turn on the television, the GUIDE Plus+™ or GUIDE Plus+ GOLD™ on-screen program guide automatically comes on.
The GUIDE Plus+™ or GUIDE Plus+ GOLD™ on-screen program guide automatically comes up when you use the TV button on the remote to turn on the TV. There are several ways to turn off this function if you wish, depending on your model.
Option A:
Select the GUIDE Plus+™ Menu from the Main menu.
Select Setup.
Select Options.
Select Off.
Option B:
Select the GUIDE Plus+™ Menu from the Main menu.
Select GUIDE Plus+™ Auto Display from the GUIDE Plus+ menu.
Select Off.
Option C:
Press GUIDE on your remote control.
Select the Menu bar.
Press the right arrow button to select Setup.
Choose Review Options.
Select Off.

I know Option C worked for me!!

Given the many TV models, it's possible that accessing control of this feature in the Program Guide menu may differ on your TV. For specific instructions for your model, see your owner's manual.

you can try checking in the menu. this tv has an option in the menu can you can turn off the speakers. in some tv's it sort of hidden. go into the audio part of the menu, if you do not see it, go down to the last item in the menu screen & keep pressing down. sometimes they have more options to show that just doesn't fit on the first screen. good luck.
