Question about Philips Magnavox 13MT143S 13" TV

1 Answer

Will this TV work after February '09?

Dear premte,

My mother-in-law does not have a manual for this TV - 13MT143S (Philips Magnavox 13" TV) and she is asking me if her TV will work after the switch to all digital signal is made in February. She is NOT and cannot use this TV with a cable hookup where it is located. She lives in a 12-story highrise (on the 2nd floor) and uses a set of rabbit ears. She can get several channels. Since the TV is fairly new, I'm thinking that the TV should work without the need for a converter box, but that she may well need a better antenna. Am I correct?

I notice from the on-line info about the TV's features on www.fixya.com that there is a setting on the TV for "Weak Signals". Would that setting help us? Can you tell me where on-line I might be able to find an on-line manual for this set? The Philips site URL brought up on fixya did not connect, but I will keep looking in that direction in the meantime.

Thanks for any help that you can give me,
Helpful Daughter-in-law

As for the DTV issue, your television will require the converter box. You can get a coupon to reduce it's cost from the United States Government Webpage and print it off.

Hello.
I believe from your description that the vertical circuit has failed. either the IC or a capacitor. Sorry, but being only a 13" set I don`t recommend you repair it. unless you have a friend that would do it for you for the cost of the parts only.

so silly. All I needed was to get a universal remote. I went online to magnovox.com and they gave me the code to use to take the code off. Thanks for contacting me back. My computer has been on the blink. Still not working right.

Scrolling menu option on screen


ON the front panel of your TV, try pushing VOL-UP and VOL-Down at the same time. I've had this happen several times with Magnavox TV's. Stargazer
