Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

3 Answers

Magnavox mptv68a I post a letter before but forgot to say that no buttons work on the tv at all and when one is pressed a message in green writing comes up in what looks like another language that says serrure enfants. We have and old phillips remote that allows us to change channels by the up and down arrows and the same with the volume and we can turn it off and on but cannot enter the 0000  or 0711 code. We have tried turning it off for a few hours to no avail and have tried holding buttons for 10 seconds but know luck. Do you have any Ideas?

Re: magnavox mptv68a

Hello pea16 serrure enfants means lock infants or as we say child lock.

Hold the display button down for 10 seconds, which removes the lock.
If that does not work try: unplugging the TV for about five minutes and see if that clears it, If you need the owner's manual you can goto: then click on support center and enter your model number.

Then go to the language section and select english.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

Help unlock child lock on tv.

The solution is so simple!
Press the POWER (RED) button and the TV/AV button simultaneously - hey presto! the child lock will switch off and you will have your TV back working properly.

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.

Magnavox mptv68a

Last year i had a phillips 100hz tv which had a similar problem.
There can be one of 2 major problems :A processor chip which controls the colour and the tube which could have failed or both.
This could be an expensive repair if the spares are available,(Usually imported from there singapore branch)
I would first check the warranty and then take it to the agents.

Magnavox MPTV68A "Magnavox" emblem is displayed and won't disappear

I don't know the exact TV, but Magnavox usually have an item or two items in the menu system where the "Magnavox" and also the "blue screen of death" can be disabled. Look in your manual.
I'd suggest the reason it appears is temporary loss of signal from the antenna, set top box, cable system or whatever it is you receive your TV programming via. I don't have an answer as to why it occurs watching video, but turning off the logo and blue screen should help. If it still occurs, it's time for professional intervention!

My 19" Magnavox won't come on.

LOL its in a demo mode man!! simply hit the menu button on the original remote and go to the special settings and turn them off. If it still does not work, then the painter or the Microprocessor Ic Needs to be replaced.
