Magnavox 15MF237 LCD - stuck in standby

I just bought a 15" Magnvox LCD 15MF237 a few days ago. I got it set up fine, but now it won't turn on with the remote or the power button on the set. It seems to be stuck in standby; the red LED is on. When I hit the power button, the red light just stays on. I have occasionally had the red light turn off, the LED go blank, and then I can get it on. However, that's after several attempts and often having to unplug the power. So far, the remote hasn't been able to turn on the set, though the other remote functions work. Any suggestions? This appears to be a good set so I'd like to keep it and hoping this is just a glitch that's easy to fix.

Just one idea.. some set you may program to stay on in case you use cable box and when you turn on the box tv turn on same time but may be defective tv there is relay,transistor and the micro that may be bad so check your settings again ... Good luck

32" vizio m370nv, not under warranty any longer,


Hi I was in a live session with you earlier but there was no response for about 15 minutes so I thought your were disconnected. Please click on the re-connect button or you can respond here. When you say it does not turn on, does the LED change color but there is no picture or is it just stuck in standby mode? Please provide this info so that we can continue with the diagnosis.

Can't get my Panasonic LCD out of Standby.


I only have two solutions. Either, turn the tv on from the tv. or try checking the tv connection. If that doesnt work maybe the remote is out of battery.

Magnavox 15mf605t/17 15'' LCD HDTV won't turn on


Have similar TV. If it is set to the PC source, it goes into standby when there is no signal, like a regular monitor. Even though the monitor is in standby, you can still press the Source button to change to, say, HD input, and will use the familiar on/off action when pressing Power on the remote.

A little weird, but I've gotten very used to it.

Magnavox 15MF400T/37 No Audio


Get a set of multi media speakers and connect them through the microphone plug in the back. I have mine set up this way and the sound is awesome. I purchased the Creative T-10. Can be found on ebay for around $15 + shipping.

Could your remote possibly need new batteries? Sometimes remotes act erratic when in need of them. Check that out and see if that is the reason for your problem. Luck!

Sound on LC-20SH4U LCD TV takes 15 minutes to come on


Probably heat sink compound on the audio IC. Fixed them before. I would imagine under $100 depending where you live.

Good luck
