My tv shuts off in seconds!

I have a magnavox 27 inch tv, my mom bought it for me for Christmas last year. a few months ago while I was watching tv it showed the eject in the corner of the screen like I was ejecting a vhs and then the vhs slot sucked inward and the tv shut off. I turned the tv back on and a few minutes later it did the same I cant even watch 5 minutes of tv. it shuts off within seconds of turning it on. Im really frustrated because its a new tv and I cant even use it. What do I do?

If it's that new call the place that it was purchased and see about manufacturer warranty... It should have a one-year parts and even that will help...
The problem you're describing is likely the center led or prisim. The unit thinks there is a tape in the tape path and attempting to load it. Not an expensive repair but highly complicated for the average person...

Magnavox 19" TV shuts itself off.....won't stay on

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

Older TV keeps going to static

Without seeing it I would suspect a bad connection on the main board. As the board heats up the board expands and as it cools in contracts opening and closing a crack in the board. Sometimes a crack or bad solder joint both are sometimes hard to find and it is a lot of solder and wait and see.I have had some luck by tapping on the board with an insulated handel of a nut driver,.. the tv on and watching for any change. If i tapped around the board some areas were more sensitive than others. I then soldered that area. I would tap around again if the set did not react I assume the problem fixed

Magnavox 19 inch television floor sample tube went out

You'll need to pull out the warranty paperwork and see what it says about repairs. You'll likely need to present the proof of purchase for the warranty along with the machine, for Best Buy to start the process. To be certain you're doing it right, consult the warranty to see what to do. You can void your extended warranty if you take the machine to someone not certified to work on the machine.

Cant get sound from some of the channels!

Try locationg the "Play Seconday Audio" option in settings and change it either from YES to NO or NO to YES. An elderly friend of mine had the same problem and that solved it. He uses Time Warner Cable, not sure what you are using, but it is worth the try.

My TV keeps shutting off

Tvtek is on the right track. The remote will not solve the problem. Sounds like a voltage regulator in HV circuit if it only lasts a few seconds. If it stays on for a couple of minutes, beam limiter cicuit is pushing to overload and shutting unit down. Magnavox set not hard to repair, but a 27" set is not cost effective to repair either.
