Re: AV channel on magnavox tv

This worked for my 20" Philips Magnavox 20MT4405/17 TV, it might work for you as well. DISCLAIMER: This is just a solution that I pieced together information from various internet sources, as I could not find a free copy of the service manual to verify this. Furthermore, I am not a technician of any sort.

Enter your TV's service menu by pressing this sequence of buttons on your remote while the TV is on:
062596 Menu

Use the arrows on your remote to scroll down to "Options", push the right arrow to enter options.

Change the 7 options parameters in order to (write down the original values in case this does not solve):
OP1: 065
OP2: 215
OP3: 065
OP4: 162
OP5: 204
OP6: 201
OP7: 000

You need to enter all 3 digits for every number, even if there are zeroes. You use the numbers on the remote to do this.

Turn the TV off with the built in power button.

Unplug the TV for 10 seconds.

Plug the TV back in, turn it back on.

If this does not solve your problem, reset the values of the options in the service menu to the values you wrote down earlier because you have a different problem than what this fix works for.

Re: AV channel on magnavox tv

You should have an "input" or "Source" button that woill allow you to cycle through the inputs available on that unit. Set the DVD up and play it / plugged into one the available in sources. Then cycle through the inputs till you locate it...
Some smaller TV's you can use the TV/VCR button to cycle through and still others will allow changing the channel below channel 2 to get there...
Good luck!

I have a Durabrand TV and all I want to do is connect my DVD player to it. However, I can't find a channel on the TV that I can play it on. Do I need some kind of code?

DVD players are usually connected with TVs by using AV cable. Your tV will have AV input sockets at its rear side. After the interconnections have been done, select the input to TV to AV. The picture of the AV cable you need is attached.

Tv magnovox tv

firstly try that tv to a different tv
if this works
then check your tv av connections in side tv
also check cables continuity
if this fails buy a AV/ RF converter, have your AV be connected to a converter, and let your output be RF feed to a tv, RF input, so instead of using AV on your tv you will be using RFchannel mode

DVD input with signal access

IF I understand you correctly, the VCR, Satellite, etc is connected using an RF modulator/coaxial cable wire going into Antenna in

IF this is true, then you have an AV IN port (red, yellow, white) free on the back. Just connect the red, yellow, white from the out of the DVD - you can use 1 or 2 - just remember which one you used; and connect it to the AV IN on the back of the TV.

THEN press ch down on the TV remote until you get to "AV1" - it is below channel 2; double check DVD player to make DVD is playing and voila!

Hook up

You can by an AV splitter box from dick smith or even k-mart audio section that allows you to plug all your units into it, then leads go to your TV. There is a switch on the box which you flick over depending whether you want to watch a DVD or play your game unit.

The other option is to have a llok at the back of your DVD player. Some have input AV's (the red, white and yellow holes !) where you could plug your game console into. Then you just leave your dvd plugged into your tv as normal. To play your game console you turn on TV and DVD player. Have TV on "AV" channel as well as your DVD player on "AV" channel (may also be your input or component channel.

Hope this helps :)
