Question about Philips 19PR19 19" TV

Open Question

Magnavox 19"PR19C1 - "This Should Be Your Next TV" continuous message on screen

My screen keeps showing "This Should Be Your Next TV" message on the screen.  It then starts listing the TV features.  Then goes on and describes each menu selection.  Then repeats this cycle continuously. 

Pushing the buttons on the TV has no effect on stopping it.  My remote buttons have no effect on stopping it.  The only way to stop it, is to unplug it (even the power button doesn't work).

This started happening after my son kept pushing the channel buttons on the TV to try to change the channel.  Of course he couldn't change the channel because (unknowing to him -- he's little) I was recording using my VCR and the TV was in VCR mode.

SOURCE: magnavox with pic tube tv skips over channel 3..goes from 2 to 4

You are right about the auto-programming, but Magnavox no longer has the original remote.

For my answer to be right, you must have posted this question to the EXACT CORRECT model # of your Magnavox TV - 27ms343s:

Press TV on your Verizon remote, and then press "0" and "3"

If that fails:
Press MENU to see the TV’s on-screen
menu. In the menu, use VOL.+/_ and
CH.+/_ to make adjustments or selections.
You can press MENU on either the
remote control or the front of the TV to
access or remove the menu.

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).

SOURCE: TV seems to be in some kind of sales demo mode

To disable the Demo mode, perform the following:

  1. Turn GA_googleFillSlot("TL-IMU-Article"); on the TV.
  2. Simultaneously hold down the Vol+ and Vol- buttons on the front of the TV. Do not use the remote control.
  3. Hold for about 6 seconds
  4. Certain model TVs may turn off, others will not. But in either case, the Demo mode should be disabled.

After Power outage - picture is larger than screen

This TV also should have similar facility like 19" Tv. Try the menu, it may be in different name or classification. I do not suspect circuit fault. If you can access service menu code you can try. Better take assistance from service center. If you access service menu, do not for get to note down the values in each and every step.
