Maganavox model#19PRC1 0121

THe tv is stuck on what seems to be an in store advertisement. It starts with Here's why this should be your next tv... and then goes into explaining the closed caption, etc. It continually repeats. Can you please tell me how to get this off? THanks!

I had to push all 4, tv up-down and vol up-down all at the same time, that is the only thing that worked for me.

The person before me had almost the right solution. I had the same problem and tried this, but it didn't work. I pushed volume up and channel up at the same time on the tv, and that worked.

The tv has been accidentally set for "demo mode". Press the volume up and volume down buttons in front of the TV at the same time for about 5 to 10 seconds untill the demo disappears or sometimes the TV will turn off. You should regain control of the TV after this.

Pre-set message in a continuous loop on tv. Can not get it to stop. Maganavox Model No.: 25TRC10101

Try holding the channel up and volume down buttons together on the front of the set until the set turns off. When you turn it back on it should be normal. If channel up and volume down doesn't work try channel down and volume up. One of the two should do it. This demo mode was for in store demonstration. Thanks

I just found a solution elsewhere on this site...
In order to make the Demo Mode stop, you should press Volume Up and Channel Up together, and hold for four seconds. This worked for my mom's tv, I hope it works for you, mooone (and everyone else, too).

27 inch tube tv won't stay on

You have a problem is in your horizontal section which also is part of your power supply. The high pitched whine is from the Intergrated High voltage transformer (also called the flyback transformer). This sound occurs when the freuency of the transformer changes and or the voltage gets too high. The click occurs as a result of the drawing of excessive current by the HOT Horizontal output transistor. This is repairable, but requires the correct equipment and a schematic.
