Question about Philips Magnavox 20MT133S 20" TV

1 Answer

We just switched from Cox Cable to AT&T U-Verse. We have a several sets throughout the house. Once the TV codes are programmed into the remotes, the U-Verse receiver and the TV are supposed to turn on and off simultaneously. One particular set will not turn on simultaneously with the U-Verse receiver. It will, however turn off simultaneously with the U-Verse receiver. The TV is a Magnavox model 20MT133S, and it is connected to a regular U-Verse set top box, NOT a DVR. Is there something peculiar about this model TV? Can yanyone suggest a solution?

    The original TV remote just a single power button, not separate on and off buttons, as did the Cox remote. Is that what you mean?

    Ok. I can't suggest a problem then. I did happen to see this type of scenario before though. I don't think there was a resolution for it that I know of. Sorry.

Yes there is, at&t techs have issues with philips/magnavox. When you are programming these tv's, you will notice if u get the right code on this particular brand, the light on the tv will blink but not turn on. This is the correct code but, the simultaneous action wont work, you'll have to hit tv first by itself and then hit power. Don't know why, but it is what it is.

Most major manufacturers supply manuals online so if you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, you may be pleasantly surprised as usually, if available, one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, Dealer Network for spare part supplies as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

I bought a oneforall universal remote but need a code for a supersonic 1380


If you are a user of AT&T Uverse remote, your technician might have possibly programmed your Sanyo TV remote before leaving.

If your remote is not programmed you can easily program it by following steps which will be mentioned in the user guide, these include:

  • You must know the four digit code for AT&T Uverse which might have been given to you at the time of TV set up.
  • The remote control codes for Sanyo TV AVM - 1337U are 1045, 4062, 1095, and 1380.

There are different methods to make your Sanyo TV remote work. For example, if you have a black remote, press the zoom button which will be on the right hand corner of your TV. Then you will have to press fast forward for two seconds or till the time the TV shuts down automatically. Then once again switch on the TV and press zoom, your remote will start working once again.

In case you have a silver colored remote control, enter code 922, you will be guided to a menu. You must select RCA. IF code 922 does not work for you, enter code 1041.

  • Any of the codes mentioned in your user guide book will definitely work. Once the code is accepted by the TV, you can program it easily and set the channels of your choice.
  • While setting programs you can program it either the manual programming method or the code search method.
  • Device codes assigned to the TV will again be mentioned in the user guide booklet.
  • The Uverse remote control is a universal remote control which is user friendly.
  • These programmed remotes are configured to work with other audio and video devices too. Uverse also offers other services such as high speed Internet, cable TV service, home phone, etc. It's rated as the best service provider in the market.
