Question about Philips Magnavox 42MF521D/37 Television

1 Answer

TV stuck/locked up

My 3 1/2 yr old son was pushing buttons on the front of the tv this morning and it started flashing the features real big across the screen over the channel that it was on at the time and now it will do nothing but this, like it is stuck. It will not even power off, I had to unplug it to shut off. It is like it is locked up in this mode. Help!!! Can I fix this.

TV is locked


Just like a few of your other readers mentioned, we pushed the button below the AV/TV button for 3 seconds and the screen unlocked. Thanks for everyone's advise, we were ready to throw out the TV.

PANASONIC 36" TAU --- NEED HELP


Sounds terminal. Companies build things with "planned obsolescence" in mind. In other words. You buy a TV today, and the warranty says it's good for 4 years. 4 years and 3 months later, it dies.

I hope someone else can help you.
Good Luck!

Codes for Big Button Remote


If it's an Innovage brand Jumbo remote, try this...
There are 2 different versions of the Innovage Jumbo remote, an old and a new.
For the old version:
1. You have to have the TV or DVD turned OFF.
2. Then, you have to push CODE SEARCH button once for 3 seconds till it lights solid
3. Then press TV (or DVD) button once till it lights once and turns solid and press the ON/OFF button very slowly and repeatedly as many as 300+ times to wait for the TV (or DVD) to go on.
4. Once it goes on...STOP and IMMEDIATELY press ENTER before you pass up the code or you'll have to start over!

This is very frustrating but my advice is to take it slow and methodical. Think the tortoise and the hare...if you go too fast, you'll redo it several times because you'll keep passing it up and accidentally turn the TV on and off suddenly and miss the code.
--------------------------------------------
For the newer version:
1. Turn the TV (or DVD) ON.
2. Press CODE SEARCH once and it blinks.
3. Press TV (or DVD) once and it blinks.
4. Press ON/OFF button only ONCE.
5. Wait as it automatically searches for the code by itself. It will have a slow long blink between each code it searches.
6. Stay alert because when the TV (or DVD) goes off, you IMMEDIATELY have to push ENTER to lock in that code before it goes onto the next one. (which it will even if the TV is off)

My Mitsubishi big screen tv will not come back on


Is the light blinking a certain number of blinks then pausing?All mistubishi have a diagnosis feature built in. Try pushing the input and menu buttons on the set and holding them both in for 5 seconds to see if it will blink a diagnosis code.
