My TV will come on for about a half minute then it shuts off.

I have a Magnovox MWC 20T6 it just shut off by itself and now it will not stay on for no longer than about half a minute.

TV comes on, but shuts off after 3 minutes. I must wait at least 5 minutes to get it to turn back on again. TV will ONLY stay on if DVD drawer is OPEN!


dvd is overheating its circuit. Keep the tray open to dry up condensation. then leave TV on standby to keep moisture out.

The vcr carriage was probably damaged ( broken gear or carriage gear, etc ), As for repairing it, it may not be worth it and chances are, you won't find a new carriage for the unit. I have, in the past, disarmed the VCR unit and at least the customer could watch the TV. Thats not possible in every set, but it seems to work in the majority of them. Good Luck

TV shuts itself off after a few minutes. Will also shut itself off if the DVD open/close button is pushed. Not sure if a DVD is in the machine or not. Any ideas??


I know that shortly after I purchased this tv mine also shut itself off occasionally. The owners manual says that if it is on dvd mode and it's paused or on an inactive menu or something for 15 minutes or so that it would shut itself off. If a dvd is stuck inside it may be causing this? I have no idea about the open/close malfunction.

TV shuts off after 10 sec


TV/vcr combo units develop problems in the vcr section,what happens is the cassete assembly draws too much current then the tv senses this increase and it says NO and shuts down,you will not be able to use the vcr anyway because it has a problem and the tv will continue to shutdown until the vcr is repaired,I have seen combo units with the tv working only as long as the vcr is not use.Remove the light you have in the opening and hope the tv works fine by itself.Adding a light is not safe.I hope this inf.helps somehow.Good luck
