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

I have 70" sharp aquos tv and power light is flashing but it won't come on. What do you think it is ?


Here's the link to download a Sharp Manual for your TV. Look under the troubleshooting section. I have a Sharp also and have been tripped up by the advanced power options it offers; there is a setting that if you haven't given it any input for 3 hours it will go into a sleep mode. The manual has how to check for this and change it. It is different for different models.

TV turns itself off?


I am sharing four cases in which your tv either turns itself off or appears to turn itself off.

TV appears to be off
  • You using your tv as a monitor or your pc is in sleeping mode.
  • Your cable or satellite Box is not outputting a signal.

TV turns iteself off
  • The sleep timer is set.
  • The off timer is set.

Your tv appears to be off:

If you are using the tv as a monitor If you are using tv as a monitor and the stand-by light only
blinks for a few seconds when you press the power button,your pc is in the sleeping mode. To take your pc out of sleep,press a key from your key board or move the mouse.Tv turns on.

If you are using TV with a cable or satellite Box

If you have a cable or satellite Box your Tv may appear be off because the cable or satellite Box is not outputting a signal.Press the guide or info button on the cable or satellite Box remote control.

if the screen displays info or guide data,the problem is caused by the Box,you must call your cable provider.
if screen does not display info data,change the source on your TV.

How can i set up the sleep mode pls?


A little more info would be helpful. Does your TV even have a sleep mode. I assume you are looking for the off timer? It will allow the TV to remain on for a set time?

How do I stop my tv from going into sleep mode, it keeps powering down


You have a Short on your Power supply or Vertical or Horizontal boards that may be faulty. The TV puts itself into self protection mode to prevent any further damage. Let a Pro. look at the Set.

What is the sleep mode?


To know more about the sleep mode and its adjustment, refer its user manual. It is a mode that you can set the sleep time, after which the TV will turn Off when that time is reached; after 30 min, iHr, 2Hr or so, to which that time is set for. http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/

Have new E370VL hooked up to Dish Network via coax. The picture jumps/blips? Connections are tight. Help.


This can happen when there is radio interference near the coaxial cables. Sometimes the interference is behind walls. The solution is to try a different combination of modulation and channel than what the DISH receiver is current set.

The DISH menu screen for this setting is Menu-6-1-5. With dual-tuner receivers, typically "TV 1 Out" is the TV that is connected in the same room as the receiver is located. "TV 2 Out" is the tuner that is fed to the remote TV via backfed coaxial signal.

All that needs to be done is to change the channel and mode going to the effected TV to something different. If your channel/mode is currently set to Air/60, try changing it to Cable/73. When you change the mode/channel in the DISH receiver, you need to set the remote TV to the same mode and channel.

Keep in mind that with some TV companies like VIZIO, they call their "Air" mode "Antenna". With VIZIO's the TV must be set on TV input and then go into the Menu to the Settings, Tuner Settings. Change mode type to match what you are trying on the DISH receiver, exit the VIZIO menu and manually enter the channel number.

Eventually with trial and error, you will find a mode/channel combination that isn't effected by your particular environmental interference.
