I've got the Magnavox blues

Posted by pugnacious (My Page) on

Got a magnajunk # 20mt1331/17. Last night the wife was watching tv (cable) and the reception was lost except for stations 1,2,3,4,5,6. All of which are the same station with no sound. Never had a station 1 before by the way. I have confirmed this wasn't a cable issue with another tv at that cable hookup and tried this tv at another cable source. This appears to be a different issue then every one else's magnavox problem's. Any idea's? Tuner kaput? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Can't find a chassis number. Thanks in advance, Jim.

I want to add some info I forgot. It was manufactured in December 2006. The other stations are just snow, again with no sound.

RE: I've got the Magnavox blues

It appears like the tuner has failed.

RE: I've got the Magnavox blues pt 2

Are you using a cable box or the cable ready tuner in the TV?

RE: I've got the Magnavox blues

Cable directly into tv. It's strange that it shows the one station on 6 channels with no sound though. Thanks for your help.

RE: I've got the Magnavox blues

Try unplugging the TV for about 5 minutes to reset any microprocessors and plug it back in.

If it still does the same, try autoprogramming the tuner again.

RE: I've got the Magnavox blues

Well, I've all ready tried this. At this point, I'm thinking the tv is going to the curb. No more magnavox or phillips from here out I guess. Thanks for your help and suggestions.
