TV picture was warped, no it is black, but the power light remains on...
I found a similar post for a different tv, but my Magnavox MS3652S Color television is doing the same thing. About a week ago when the television was turned on the picture did not come on the whole screen. There was a wiggly (asymetrical) line on the right side (when facing the tv) and a low volume, but high pitched noise (screech) could be heard, but eventually the picture would fill the whole screen. Changing the channel or calling up the cable guide (which mostly fills the bottom of the screen)seemed to get the picture to come in a few times. The problem became worse, as the TV started to turn itself off, and it took more and more tries to get the picture to come in. Now there is no picture at all, the screen is completely black, but the green power light will stay on.

In order for the TV to work with the cable box by using a piece of coax and tuning the TV to channel 3, you must make sure the TV is in "Cable" mode on the tuner and not "AIR or Antenna" the frequency maps are different between these types of service and channel 3 cable will not be the same as channel 3 on Air or UHF/VHF.
Often there is an auto program feature on TV's that will "scan" for all available channels, and this should select the proper input type.
You may have filed this one in the wrong place. A maggie MS3652S is a 36" crt based model, with a L01.1UAC chassis. But you start off your explanation as if it were a projector TV. Check the model and series again and let me know if I can help...
