Re: mw27h62

X-box Sounds like it could be a bad inverter board, Toshiba p/n#72001911 and they cost about $35 plus shipping... This is a common failure with this model causing anything from intermittent shutdown to simple loss of video. Get it in the shop and have them check it out. Might also take the part number with you so they don't have to research it... Good Luck Bill

Standby sleep

If the display is automatically going into standby while watching, make sure do disable power saving in the main menu.

If the TV will not come out of standby, the DSP may have crashed. Try un plugging the unit from the wall, waiting 20 seconds, then plugging it back in.

Hope this helps,

No sound

Disconnect any audio / video cables going to your input sources. Then plug only 1 component in and see if it works. Sometimes there is a feature in certain tvs to disable the audio from the TV menu. Use your tv remote to cycle through the menu settings to see if your audio / sound was accidentally disabled. All else fails call Toshiba, they generally will help you for free.

Tv shuts off automatically after beimg on for only a couple of minutes. sleep timer is disabled

Is the on time the same every incident? If you restart it, does it start right away and stay on the same amount of time?

If identical, sounds like the sleep function is not truly disabled. If you haven't tried turning the sleep function off and back on again, and unplugging the unit for a day and then plugging back in, and resetting to factory defaults (if that's on the menu), try them because those things might reset it.

If not identical, then I would suspect something thermal - heats up and shuts down. That would take a tech to solve (unless you set it in front of an air conditioner!).

This TV has a sleep mode

There are two ways to solve this, but both will require using the original remote for the Magnavox. The original remote has a SLEEP button - press it until the screen says Sleep DISABLED or Sleep OFF.

Or make sure the TV is in TV mode, and Press Menu --> TV Steup --> Sleep Timer --> change to DISABLED
