Re: Magnavox TV won't turn on.
Not sure what buttons you could have pressed . The TV should still come on even if you pressed the parental features. This will only block certain channels out . One thing you can try is to unplug TV over night from 120V and plug it back up in the morning to see if it will reset itself . Let me know if this works . Good luck
