My magnavox t.v. will not allow me to operate any of the keys. All it shows when I plug it up(cannot turn on with the power button)is a scrolling message like you would see in the store.Something like "This is the last t.v. you will ever have to buy." Then it flashes all of the different functions. Nothing I push on the remote or the t.v. control will let me operate the thing. I don't know why this message started appearing.
Can someone please help?

Re: My 19" Magnavox won't come on.
LOL its in a demo mode man!! simply hit the menu button on the original remote and go to the special settings and turn them off. If it still does not work, then the painter or the Microprocessor Ic Needs to be replaced.

You have a bad capacitor in the power supply. If you can remove the back cover, you may see a bulged capacitor or two. Replace these and your TV will come back to life. I'm sorry, I do not have capacitor values and locations at this moment. But, the fix should be fairly simple. If you have some elctronic experience, you can fix this. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!
