Can't really say my problem is solved Called the 1-800# and spent more than 1 hr. talking with various people and the consensus is that the Box is defective. Common sense and no real knowledge of electronics told me that before I ever called.
Solution - UPS will pick up the packaged Box between 8AM and 7PM today - very specific time!!!!
I will have a new one in 6-8 wks and by that time I will have NO TV reception. Asked if they could possibly put a RUSH on the order but that's like asking if I could get an invitation to the Inauguration!
Lots of frustration for purchasing an inferior product.

Thanks for your concern and prompt response

Magnavox converter box. How can I tell if the box is the problem or the TV? I have no picture, but it isn't the picture tube.


I assume that you are attempting to use the Magnavox converter box to convert digital TV signals received by your antenna system into analog signals for use on an older analog (non-digital) TV set. If that is the case then your first step at troubleshooting the problem should be to view the Magnavox installation instructions to ensure that the converter, antenna, and TV are all properly connected.

My manavox tv dvd/vhs unit is hooked up to a converter box. All I had to do was turn on the converter box and then the tv. It was working just fine untill I cut if off one day, instead of leaving it on...


  1. Try unplugging the converter box from the power, and RCA or Coax connector. Reconnect the power and RCA or Coax connector. Try turning it on.
  2. Look for a reset button. May be a small hole with a button inside, if you find one use a paperclip or similar to press it.
  3. Try the converter box with a different TV.
  4. If this doesn't fix the problem, replace the converter box.

Magnavox converter box TB110MW9 shuts off repeatedly


Hello,

Looks like you got a bad converter. I have the same kind and it is a pain that you can't use the remote to also control the TV. It will turn itself off after 2 hours by itself if you do not change the options, but the symptoms you describe are beyond consumer repair.

Do you still have the manual? There is a toll free number to contact them and ask for a replacement. If you do not have it I can provide it tomorrow. (I am not at home right now.) Of course you can only get one of the same converters.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Converter Box Problem


If you are receiving digital signal and channel is fuzzy, something wrong. Only Analog signal is fuzzy. With Digital it is great picture or nothing. For channel 6, check to see if they are broadcasting in digital yet. If they are not, this is why you are not getting a signal. If they are broadcasting in digital, then you need a stronger antenna.

Hook up analog vcr to hd tv


You must have a converter box for the tv and for the vcr. Set the vcr to receive chanel 3 and set the converter box to the digital chanel you want to record. Put a splitter on the antenae out and route one to the tv converter box and one to the vcr converter box. GOOD TO GO.
