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

No, it is most certainly not worth fixing. In fact, it is worth nothing - even if it were working great. Probable cause: an obsolete electrical component. Cost: no TV tech will touch it. Sorry. Suck it up and buy yourself a moderately priced TV.

Tv continues to go to menu screen (not dish menu, tv menu)

sounds like a button is stuck. Remove the battery from the remote and see if this fixes the problem

When i turn the tv on i get sound but just a black screen

Try pressing the menu button on the remote to see if the menu comes up.

If it does it's possible the light and colour have been turned right down, find the option on the menu and turn it up.

Also check no cables are unplugged at the back of the tv, picture is usually yellow make sure it's in tight. Check other end as well so sky box or DVD player.

If you're using an AV port on your tv try using a different one, so switch form AV1 to AV2.
