you will need to use the RCA inputs at the back of the TV (yellow red and white plugs), if the DVD player only has a SCART connector you will need to get a scart to RCA cable.

I believe you either have a problem with your Power Supply inside your TV from a defective component in the circuit or you have a problem with the Picture Tube on your TV. I don't recommend you working on TV's by yourself unless you know what you're doing since you can get badly shocked. You need to discharge the Picture Tube on the TV before you work down any further. If you don't know what you're doing then you should get someone that knows what they're doing to work on your TV.

You don't have a cable connected right. Check alll your input connections and also check what they are connected to.

A model number for your Magnavox TV would be helpful because the Parental Control Reset procedure varies. There should be a sticker on the back of the TV showing the model number. If you have a newer LCD model, the unlock code is usually 0711. Ignore any "Incorrect" warning and enter 0711 again. Then set or clear the Parental Access Code.

check and replace your horizontal output transistor as well as the regulator..

Strictly speaking, analogue no longer exists. if you are accessing channels through an Antenna, You're going to need a digital converter box.

Could be bad reception and or make sure the tv which was in the cable mode when you had cable now needs to be in air or antenna mode. IF you have another tv that works ok then you will know the channels just need to be reprogrammed for over the air signal. Go into the menu of tv and find program channels and switch to air or it might say antenna..

CAUTION: To prevent damage to the CRT phosphors, immediately turn down the brightness so the line is just barely visible. If the user controls do not have enough range, you will have to locate and adjust the master brightness or screen/G2 pots.

A single horizontal line means that you have lost vertical deflection. High voltage is most likely fine since there is something on the screen.

This could be due to:

Dirty service switch contacts. There is often a small switch located inside on the main board or perhaps accessible from the back. This is used during setup to set the color background levels. (On some sets, this is located on the CRT neck board and may be a jumper plug or other means of selecting service mode - not an actual switch.)

When moved to the 'service' position, it kills vertical deflection and video to the CRT. If the switch somehow changed position or got dirty or corroded contacts, you will have this symptom. Flip the switch back and forth a couple of times. If there is some change, then replace, clean, resolder, or even bypass it as appropriate.

Bad connection to deflection yoke or other parts in vertical output circuit. Bad connections are common in TVs and monitors. Check around the pins of large components like transformers, power transistors and resistors, or connectors for hairline cracks in the solder. Reseat internal connectors. Check particularly around the connector to the deflection yoke on the CRT.

Bad vertical deflection IC or transistor. You will probably need the service manual for this and the following. However, if the vertical deflection is done with an IC, the ECG Semiconductor Master Substitution guide may have its pinout which may be enough to test it with a scope.

Other bad parts in vertical deflection circuit though there are not that many parts that would kill the deflection entirely.

Loss of power to vertical deflection circuits. Check for blown fusable resistors/fuses and bad connections.

Loss of vertical oscillator or vertical drive signals.

The most likely possibilities are in the deflection output stage or bad connections to the yoke.
Hope it works well...

look on the back of tv for a 1800 number to call for help and if there is one call they should be able to help you also can search the net for akia manuel with your model.

You will need to buy the exact remote for that model to turn the lock off.

I think your Video Drum needs to be replaced since it's bad. You can get replacement Video Drums on the Internet.
