How to Use the USB on the Magnavox Flat-Screen TV

By Lindsay Howell

Many Magnavox flat-screen televisions have a USB port to accept flash drives. This allows users to share personal pictures and videos with their friends and extended family in their living room on their comfortable couches. Magnavox televisions use a special USB channel to access the information. It will take about a minute or so for a file to appear if there are a lot of files on the flash drive.

Step 1

Insert the USB flash drive into the USB port on the back of the flat-screen TV.

Step 2

Press the "Power" button on the TV.

Step 3

Press the "Input" button until you come to the "USB" option. Press "OK" to open the USB flash drive.

Step 4

Point to a file using the arrows on the remote. Press "OK" to view the file.
