Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have Magnavox Model PR1910c222 television, ser ial #40341660 where none of the buttons or remote will to anything. To turn it off, you must unplug it and when you plug it back in, it starts out on a promotional loop telling why this is the Television to buy but you cannot access menu or any other controls on the front of the TV. This is my elderly mother`s (94) tv in her rest home and is her only source of news, etc. What to do?

    Thank you for your quick response and probable answer to the problem. As the TV is about 15 years old and I have no electrical or soldering expertise, I shall urge my mother to invest in a new TV

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems the issue is with the power board or the main board we’ll need to check few things. When you open the unit up; take a look at the power board-the board where, the power cords/plugs goes into. You might see some filter capacitors a little bulged up in the top-If this is the case-this is your defective part(you can try to replace them-but some soldering equipment is needed). If not, then probably the main board has gone bad. This is the other board-where all he inputs are going into. Also check for the Backlight Inverter Board if the sound is coming fine from the TV however as its shutting off so it should be either the power board or the main board. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise and know how to solder/re-solder components.
. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

I have a philips magnavox tv with the original remote. closed caption constantly (writing script)comes on tv screen, even though the remote has a cc button,i press it until cc off comes on, the cc goes off...


You're not doing anything wrong. Your TV is somehow turning the cc on "all by itself". Some bit is getting flipped inside the TV, turning the cc on.

either that or there is some sort of rf or ir interference near the TV that is mimicking the CC button on the remote.

Have you pressed the cc button on the remote, verified the cc is "off" on the TV and then removed the batteries from the remote for a while to make sure there isn't something hinky with the remote???

Mute and C on the screen


The TV is in factory or demo mode - turn tv off and unplug it from wall outlet for 30 seconds - turn tv back on after 30 seconds and see if problem goes away. If not, press the (volume -) and (channel -) buttons repeatedly for about 10 seconds to see if "C" will go away. If this fails call 1-888-PHILIPS for further assistance (they do Magnavox also).
