Question about Philips Magnavox 13MT143S 13" TV
I just got a dvd player and I'm not able to get it to play because the TV doesn't display the AV channel. I had the channel when I purchased the TV the channel disappeared when I auto programed the channels on the TV. Can you help? Thank you!
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:
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):
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.

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...
