    I had the same problem. I took it to repair facility and they told me they see these TV's in all the time for repair. It was the internal power supply. Since it has to power on the TV, VCR and DVD player, the power supplies go quickly on these TV's. He advised me it would be about $225 to repair. We only paid $318 for the TV. I am going to buy a new one and not get a combo.

We were watching a dvd and the unit shut off. We can't get the DVD door to open. Is there anything we can do to get the DVD to open and start playing a DVD?

Have MAG TV model CT270MW8 27 inch that wont stay on unless a VHS tape is in and then only if VHS player ejects it (automatically) and then reiserts itself. The tape then/must stay in


You have a mechanism problem in the player---it has two sensors in the tray and they detect the tape is in and load it.

If the unit was working it will each time turned on cycle the mechanism to see that it functions--shutdown if not functioning correctly.

My tv won t turn on i just purchased it today i plugged it in and it won t turn on


Check the electrical outlet which the tv is plugged into. Make sure nothing is loose at the outlet as well as on the back of the tv where the power cable plugs in. Another thing to try is plug a different device into that same electrical outlet and see if it turns on. If it doesn't turn on, it could be a faulty electrical outlet. If you've tried both the remote & the power button on the tv, a shot in the dark would be to change the batteries in the remote.
You could always try calling their tech support at 1-800-256-2487. A last resort would be to return the tv from where you purchased it.

Sometimes when the TV recives a brodcast signal for a new update to the mainframes firmware, it will have to turn itself on to install/recive the update and aslong as it is connected to a power source it can do this. hope this helped answer your question. Have a good day :)

TV shuts off after 5 seconds Magnavox CT270MW8


Open TV and notice if the VCR cartridge jumps (jitters) back and forth when you plug the TV in before it shuts down. If it does, there is a good chance you will have to replace the VCR mech on this unit (available from Andrews Electronics and maybe MCM electronics for $40-$50). This is a common problem on this unit. I work in a TV repair shop and see a lot of these come in for this reason.

Manual will not help - if you unplugged it all night, and it will still not power up, try one more outlet in the house. If it still will not help, then you need to replace the power supply for the TV. Sorry.

The power supply is shutting down for one reason or another. This unit has 4 shutdown alarms feeding the main processor. It doesn't take much to trip it and believe me, it's a ***** to find it if it is a subtle condition. The VCR could be shutting it down as well if it is not reset exactly right.

This is what I did with the one unit I worked on; It would shut down after 5 seconds. The picture was good when it breifly came on -- but it shut down anyway.

IC1601 is the shutdown opto isolator that will shut off the supply. I removed it and the set came on. After a few minutes one of the power supply diodes started smoking so I unplugged it. The diode, D1618 was bad so I replaced it and the TV worked. But, I could not put IC1601 back in without it still shutting down. I spent hours searching and couldn't find anything. Since it was my son's TV (which he found at the dump) it was OK by me. BUT, if you remove this IC, (it is a four pin located near the yellow transformer) the set will come on no matter what. Just remember, if there is a problem, it will show up quickly. Maybe a new troubleshooting method? Ohms law troubleshooting? No, unfortunately not. Just be careful and try to find the problem.

If you google this model number, you will find a free schematic that --someone-- uploaded to a free schematic website.

Unit shuts off automatically after power on.


You have an internal short in the electrical line. your wall a/c [120 volts] goes inside and is converted [changed] to DC [ like a super battery] There are a lot of connections coming out of this POWER SUPPLY[super battery] to FEED other electrical circuit. ANY one of the circuits can demand more then power supply can give and will cause it to SHUT DOWN [turn off to protect itself]
unless u know what u are doing [" DANGER!! wILL rOBINSON, DANGER!!] you should not mess with it.

Magnavox mwd 2206 dvd vcr player....shuts off with eject word across screen.


On a unit I checked with this same symptom, removing the top cover allows the unit to stay on and operate normally. There is some sort of sensor at the left middle of the chassis, which, when unblocked by any opaque object, allows the unit to remain on. A temporary fix (not advisable) would be to replace the top cover with a piece of clear plastic or taut saran wrap (no vent holes needed). It's unclear exactly where/what that sensor is from a cursory test. This is a work in progress on someone else's machine that I lack full access to.
