Question about Goodmans 2065TS 20" TV

Problem with my Goodmans 2065TS

I am unable to operate my TV using the remote nor any of the buttons. I presume that somehow I have put the child lock on but, typically, I cannot find the manual.

There is a message on the screen which is permanently located in the top left hand corner. The message reads SVC v1.

I would be very grateful if someone could help me resolve this problem as i'm getting to the point where i'll just throw the tv out.

I've had this problem before and it turned out that the NVM (Eeprom) was corrupted.The only certain fix is to replace it ifyou can get it

Sounds like your tv has gone in to service mode.


  • Select pr. number 91
  • Adjust sharpness to minimum and exit all menus.
  • Quickly press the key sequence : RED - GREEN - menu
  • The software version is displayed beside the word Service, e.g. “ SERVICE V1.00A”.
  • To exit SERVICE menu press menu key or Std By key.

    I accidently put the child lock on the magnavox tv how can i get it off with a universal remote?

    Depend on your remote would be easier with the remote that came with the TV. Can you acses the TVs menu with your universal? if not I don't think there's anything you can do. if yes, this how you do it:

    1 Press MENU to show the on-screen menu.
    2 Press VOL+ or VOL- repeatedly until SET is highlighted.
    3 Press CH+ or CH- to highlight CHILD LOCK.
    4 Press VOL+ or VOL- to choose ON or OFF. Choose ON to disable all the buttons on the front of the TV. CHILD LOCK ON will appear briefly on the TV screen each time you press a button on the front of the TV. You can still operate the TV with the remote control.You can still use the POWER button on the front of the TV, but only to turn off the TV (not on). Set CHILD LOCK to OFF to cancel this feature so you can use the buttons on the front of the TV again.
    5 Press TV/AV/EXIT to remove the menu from the screen.

    Child lock on, TV off, No remote or manual=cannot turn TV back on

    i found out on line in the owners manual that if u still have a remote control that came with the tv, u press the tv/av button and enter button at the same time to disable the child lock. New problem: u can't do it with a universal remote, even if its programmed to a magnavox tv. I called the 800 # to buy a remote control and the rep told me that it cost $50, not including the shipping and handling. so my husband put the tv in the car, brought an extension cord and took it to a local tv repairman who was kind enough to use his remote to remove the child lock for us. finally someone who is helpful for free. thanks to all the nice people out there!

    Hold down the F button and press the MUTE button to unlock.
    You can only remove the child lock using the remote.

    On those particular Magnavox TV's you have to use the original type of remote to power it back on then un-lock the parental lock. It is a bummer that nothing else will work. Here is a link to purchase a replacement remote..

    Blue screen and red padlock

    It sounds to me like a child lock function, which is usually what the screen + padlock is on TVs. Usually your original remote would have a button / sequence to unlock the mode. If you still have your original remote, look for a child lock button or refer to your remote manual (and/or TV manual for the child lock feature) to unlock the mode.
