    I have a Magnavox 32MF338 and I've gone online, and saw some steps to access the service menu. None that I saw worked. Does anyone know what the proper steps are to access the service menu?

    This is specifically listed for older sets; however you may want to try here:
    Code:

    This is for newer philips/magnovox lcd sets:
    Service Code ENTER: 062596 "INFO". Whatever you do DO NOT ADJUST anything on the "OPTION NUMBERS" menu, GROUP 1 OR GROUP 2.

    I'll try it thanks. Just turn the TV on first correct, I don't have to be on a certain input right?

    1. you have to be on a channel on the tuner (not a video input).
    2. if you followed #1, did you try both methods (# followed by the menu button, or number followed by the info button?

    Why do you want to enter the service menu?

    Because when I turned it on the other day, sometimes it makes this high pitched sqeal, then it turns its self back off, then I turn it on again and its fine.

    I was told the tv keeps error reports and from the symptoms it sounds like the Power supply is going.

    I just wanted to confirm myself, because it operates fine so I want to fix it before it breaks.
