Question about Televison & Video
You have something in the set's menu set wrong--if sound ok with a DVD set is ok---look in menu for something like SAP= most sets have Mono-Stereo-Sap settings.
Sap is secondary audio program which is for a second language to be broadcast (French, Spanish etc.) and if not active there will be no sound on selected channels.
I suspect a careful look will show SAP is engaged and some remotes have a button (MTS etc that will unwittingly get pressed).
Good luck and hope this helped.

some sets auto-go av when you plug a rca jackin the set, others have a switch in front or back , others you might set your channel to 00 or 99 or 100 forget and work different , I the owners manual of course would tell you. but I assume u dont have it . try hooking it and letting the dvd run now find it using the remote.

SOURCE: Black box appears in TV screen
The problem with the black box happened to me. I had pushed the subtitle button on my remote by mistake. Interestingly enough, as soon as I pushed the SUBTITLE key again, on the remote, the black boxes disappeared.
It also says CC which means closed captioned-- So the bottom on my remote is Subtitle, and then on the subtitle button is cc...
I hope this helps

SOURCE: AV channel on magnavox tv
This worked for my 20" Philips Magnavox 20MT4405/17 TV, it might work for you as well. DISCLAIMER: This is just a solution that I pieced together information from various internet sources, as I could not find a free copy of the service manual to verify this. Furthermore, I am not a technician of any sort.
Enter your TV's service menu by pressing this sequence of buttons on your remote while the TV is on:
Use the arrows on your remote to scroll down to "Options", push the right arrow to enter options.
Change the 7 options parameters in order to (write down the original values in case this does not solve):
You need to enter all 3 digits for every number, even if there are zeroes. You use the numbers on the remote to do this.
Turn the TV off with the built in power button.
Unplug the TV for 10 seconds.
Plug the TV back in, turn it back on.
If this does not solve your problem, reset the values of the options in the service menu to the values you wrote down earlier because you have a different problem than what this fix works for.
