Question about Philips Magnavox Learning Universal Remote

Open Question

Can no longer get to "menu" screen on Magnavox tv

Have a 15yr old Magnavox tv, model# RS1966 B421.  My remote is able to turn the tv on/off, change channels, but the "menu" key no longer works.  The "menu" screen no longer is displayed, so we can't add/remove cable channels, switch from cable input to video input, etc.  Do not believe the issue is the remote (replaced the remote and saw the same problem).  It was working a week ago when we left on vacation and wasn't when we came back.  The tv itself has little in the way of manual controls; power, channels, volume (and a couple display and status buttons that don't seem to work).  Any ideas on how to get the "menu" display working again?

Did you try and look into your manual to see if there is a different code that you can use to reprogram your remote. Sometimes that will help.

Ihave a philips dvd/tv remote, but i can't get it to operate my magnavox tv except on/off and volume, can you help?


There are a number of different codes for each TV, pick the one that works best for example these are for magnavox, but since I don't know the model no of your remote they might not be correct for yours! 0441, 0442, 0447, 0599, 0799, 0699, 0247, 0193, 0093, 0598

Magnavox input change


If the remote is its original one, there should be a button marked 'TV/AV'. Press this button to select inputs.

SDTV REMOTE CODES FOR MAGNAVOX


Hi

On the URC 4330 model the Magnavox brand is not listed in the code index.

Therefore, you should be aware that this remote may not have code stored in its pre-programmed library to allow it to operate Magnavox.

There is a code search function with this remote and this is your only other option in a situation such as this.

TO SEARCH FOR YOUR CODE FOR YOUR TV

1. On the remote control, press TV once.

2. Press and hold SET until the LED blinks twice, then release SET.

3. Enter 9 - 9 - 1.The LED will blink twice.

4. Aim the remote control at the TV and slowly alternate between pressing POWER and TV. Stop when the TV turns off.

NOTE: In the search mode, the remote control will send IR codes from its library to the selected device, starting with the most popular code first so this may take some time to complete.

5.Once you find the point at which the remote operates the TV press and hold SET until the LED blinks twice, then release SET. This locks in the code.

As I say - the remote may or may not compatible with Magnavox. However this search function is there to use in situations such as this.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

I have the Sylvania TV model#SST4191. I can not get an universal remote to program with it. Isn't there a sensor on the TV somewhere to read the code?


I dont know this model or how old it is. If it is an older set a universal magnavox or philips remote will work. You should find an older model remote in this case. If it is a newer tv you may use a newer magnavox or philips universal remote. If this is a flat screen, you will have to contact the manufacturer. You will be pleased to know now, that you are on the correct path.

Remote and caption problems


have you programmed the remote? or you can go into the menu button on the front of the tv, use the up down (either the volume or channel may move the selection) to locate the caption on/off control and turn it off that way. if you need the manual try here
