Thumbs up

Good Morning, mrmojo:

Not knowing the year and model of the set, I can shotgun a theory that may be the solution.

Magnavox installed a volume limiter control in some of its sets. Essentially, the function of this control was to keep volume from becoming too loud (kids). Also, Magnavox was trying to get into the hotel/motel trade to market their sets. In a motel, it is nice to know that your customer cannot turn up his set and disturb folks around him.

Again, this is speculation. But, the control resided behind a flip open door on some series sets. The adjustment was to turn the main volume control to maximum and then adjust the limiter to the level desired (using a small screwdriver).
