Magnavox 42 inch LCD TV

My magnavox will change the source and channel when I am using hte TV. For example, if I am watching a DVD in AV1, the TV will automatically change the source to AV2 or to random channels. Is this problem common?

Re: Magnavox 42 inch LCD TV

I was having the same problem. On my tv it was caused by a loose or faulty interface chip. I solved this on my television by opening the case and unplugging the circuit board at the top center where the menu and channel buttons are located. I've been running the tv for about a week and have had no more problems.

Did you check your cabling on the video input to the TV? I would try replacing the cables first. If that doesnt work I would try using a different source for the video than what you are using now. Do you have a seperate dvd or bluray player or even another cable box that has the same outputs as the source you currently cannot see? If so try using another one and if it still doesn't work then the culprit most likely lies within the TV.

WHen it turns on it scans for channels but never picks up a channel. We have directtv so all we need is it to pick up channel 3 or 4 so we can watch it through the box.

forget about the cable box for a minute. You need to go into the menu and change the source, right now its set to cable and your tv is acting as is own cable box decoder.

Connecting a DVD/VCR combo to LCD TV

The best suggestion I would advise is to buy a shielded scart connector & connect that from your DVD combi to either AV1 OR AV2. It sounds as if you are picking up RF interference from your current connections, this can sometimes happen if the cables do not have adequate shielding.

Common issue I have come across when using any TV as a PC monitor. Best workaround i found is just dont change inputs or reboot the PC and the tv will pick it back up.
