Television Screen problem

I have a 20" Magnavox Smart Model TV.
I do not have the original remote.

The screen size is incorrect, all the top and bottom lines (such as scores,
ticklers, etc...) are not visable. I can find no control on the menu to compress the picture/screen to the correct size.

Do you have a way to do that?

There is no menu available for this adjustment. Without the specific model, I can't give you the exact cause. But, this is usually caused by one or more parts starting to fail in the vertical circuit. If I had this in the shop, I would look for bad capacitors in the vertical circuit before I started making adjustments.

My Magnovox TV has smart lock and we do not have the code please help


Hello Thomas,

The code for disabling "SmartLock" on this TV (Magnavox 20MS2331/17) is definitely 0711

However, you will need to enter this code twice.

1. When the TV asks for the Access Code, enter 0 7 1 1 using the numerical keys on the remote;
2. "INCORRECT CODE" will appear on the TV screen after entering the code.

This is just a trick - an addition part of the security system.

3. Enter 0 7 1 1 again. The TV will now unlock.

This code is the default code and also the override code should a personal code ever be set and forgotten. This code cannot be removed. It simply needs to be entered twice. If you are not getting the message "INCORRECT CODE" on the TV screen after entering the code the first time, then it would appear that your remote control is not working.

Please try again and make sure you are entering the code twice. If it still wont unlock - or you are not getting the "INCORRECT CODE" message on the TV screen, please let me know.

I may also be able to supply a new user manual for this TV if you do not have one. Please let me know if you would like one.

Regards,
BElectric

Picture on Telefunken 72 cm TV expands beyond screen size


Your screen somehow got switched to theatre/cinema mode. There is a setting on the remote that attributes to aspect ratio. Sometimes it is called "ASPECT". Look for it, and press it until your original screen aspect shows.

Do not have a remote i have closed caption on the screen i can not get rid of it


Most cable remotes allow you to set many basic functions to somewhat control your TV with the proper code. They may not have all the capabilities of the original remote but CC is one that it should allow you to access.
Check your manual or instructions from the cable company or their website for instructions on how to do this with your remote and set.
It may take some time and the input of several different codes since all of the manuafacturers seem to love changing them from one model to the next.
