Re: My smart series magnavox keeps shutting...

Get rid of your dvr-fixed it for me!! I had Time Warner(Scietific Atlanta) HD DVR and my tv would shut down after 1 hr ow watching-sometimes more frequently. This hapenned when i was watching a dvd or bd on my ps3 or even while playing the wii-all these for several hours. Hmmm. threw away the nasty HD DVR and voila-hasn't shut down in months!!! I thjink it may be the HDCP kicking in trying to prevent my from recording HD content(TNTHD- L&O). Anyways, I'll prolly install gentoo on my psr and use it as a pvr. Hope this helps somebody-I was getting ready to give up on my Samsung 56" DLP TV!!

Switch-mode power suppy is flaking out.

when it does that its hard on your high voltage circuits so get it fixed or it might turn to a huge bill.

Our Philips Magnavox Smart Series TV Shuts Off

It is possible it could be a switch but this is usually after extensive use. If it does the same with the remote control chances are it's not the switch. These sets had problems with the vertical circuit as well. I've fixed a lot of these with vertical problems. It should not run but about $80-$100 to repair if it is a vertical problem. These sets have a lot of safety cicuits as well so it could be a horizontal circuit problem as well or power supply. Kind of hard to say without a good troubleshooting. Thanks

How do i get the closed caption off of my magnavox smart series tv?

There is a little button to the right of the "0" that says "CC" for closed caption. Just keep pressing it till the option "closed caption off" appears on the screen. Then, hit STATUS EXIT, and you're done.

Magnavox converter box turns off

There is a setting I think might be causing this. My mom had this
and we went into the menu and details there is a spot in there that
says 2 hour, 4 hour shut down and we turned it to off. Just a thought. Hope it works.
