    Thanks Bill I found a simple solution.

    Somehow two buttons were pushed at the same time, and it locks the whole TV, I could not even get into the menu.

    The solution I found was to hold the display button down for 10 seconds, which removes the lock.

    Appears to be a regular problem with the Mangnvox

    I'm all fixed and no longer cranky, even though I could not atch the TV for a couple of days.

Our magnovox remote does not have an obvious 'display' button. I tried to hold each of the coloured buttons down for 10 secs but thru trial and error found the ' display ' button. It is the button that has the rectangle with the + in the top right corner. Hope that helps someone.

On the remote try pressing 0-0-0-0 in that sequence with the TV on... That's Philips / Magnavox default code for the child lock feature. If that works I would then go into the menu and turn off the child lock feature. If that doesn't do it, try unplugging the TV for about five minutes and see if that clears it... If you need the owner's manual you can goto: http://www.magnavox.com/ then click on support center and enter your model number. Good Luck Bill

Magnavox mptv68a


Last year i had a phillips 100hz tv which had a similar problem.
There can be one of 2 major problems :A processor chip which controls the colour and the tube which could have failed or both.
This could be an expensive repair if the spares are available,(Usually imported from there singapore branch)
I would first check the warranty and then take it to the agents.

Magnavox MPTV68A "Magnavox" emblem is displayed and won't disappear


I don't know the exact TV, but Magnavox usually have an item or two items in the menu system where the "Magnavox" and also the "blue screen of death" can be disabled. Look in your manual.
I'd suggest the reason it appears is temporary loss of signal from the antenna, set top box, cable system or whatever it is you receive your TV programming via. I don't have an answer as to why it occurs watching video, but turning off the logo and blue screen should help. If it still occurs, it's time for professional intervention!

Hello pea16 serrure enfants means lock infants or as we say child lock.

Hold the display button down for 10 seconds, which removes the lock.
If that does not work try: unplugging the TV for about five minutes and see if that clears it, If you need the owner's manual you can goto: http://www.magnavox.com/ then click on support center and enter your model number.

Then go to the language section and select english.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

Try the reset on the remote. Press this key twice to restore factory settings. The TV will automatically start Channel Search and clear all customized settings. These features will automatically reset: ? Picture/Sound Adjustments: Color, Tint, Contrast, Brightness, Sharpness, Color Enhancer, Tone, and Surround Sound ? Channel Memory ? Audio to Stereo ? Caption to OFF ? V-Guide to OFF ? Aspect Ratio to 4:3 (normal) ? Menu Language to English ? Sleep Timer (if previously set) ? Video to TV (if previously set) If desired, personal settings can be made again using the menu options
