Question about Televison & Video

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?

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: http://www.magnavox.com/ 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,
Shuttle83

I CANT GET OFF THE SET UP SCREEN , MANGNAVOX 47" TV, NO UNIV. REMOTES HAVE WORKED, PRESS THE GREEN BUTTON TO PROCEED?


The TV was turn ON for the first time or the TV reboot/reset.
Universal remotes are not as "universal" as we like them to be. They only control a very, small amount of options for the TV.

You'll need the remote that came with the TV to fix this problem because it has the special RED, GREEN, YELLOW, and BLUE buttons you need.
If you don't have the original remote, you can get one at this web site. It's the best price going right now. $29.95

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!
