I came accross this question, because I've been looking for the remote code for my cable remote. I had originally put the TV remote somewhere in a box when I was moving years ago, Since my cable remote changes the channel, I've been doing the same as you all this time. Therefore, I totally understand your frustration on trying to understanding how to navigate within the menu: It's not what you would think would be a standard or logical way....

Anyway, in my research, I did come accross the TV manual, and I found the instruction on how to reset the TV. I tried the steps, and THEY"RE STILL confusing, so I've added my own hints....hope this helps:

Your TV can be reset to the factory settings in case you forget your Smart Lock password, or want to change the picture, sound, or features settings.

1 Press the MENU button on the remote control to see the onscreen menu.

In the left panel, you will see four icons (from top to bottom)

  • TV INSTALL (a tv)
  • PICTURE (icon of film)
  • SOUND (a piano)
  • FEATURES (icon of pliers and a hammer)

When the Menu screen is showing the left panel as highlighted light grey, the Chanel buttons have Page up/Page down Functionality


2 Press the the (CH UP) or_(CH DN) buttons to highlight the FEATURES menu.

Navigate to the FEAUTRES menu (icon of pliers and a hammer - bottom of left panel) and you should make sure it is highlighted in blue

3 Press the (VOL+) button to enter into the FEATURES menu.

The right panel should now be highlighted in a light grey

4 Press the (CH UP) or (CH DN) buttons to highlight the FACTORY SETTINGS control.

This will select items in the right panel, FACTORY SETTINGS in on the bottom


5 Press the the _(VOL+) or _(VOL-) buttons to reset the TV to the original factory settings.

6 Press the MENU button repeatedly to clear the menu from the screen.

The entire manual is found at this link: http://www.m4c.magnavox.com/files/1/15mf200v_37/15mf200v_37_dfu_aen.pdf

BTW, of any one know how I can program or get an RCN remote to use on this TV, please let me know!!!!

I have a ge universal remote and my tv is a Magnavox can I find the code for my tv with this remote


You can use code search to find something that works. If a search through all codes stored in the remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote (such as Philips). All universal remotes do not store all possible codes.

Where can I find a code for my universal remote to work on this tv?


Codes are stored in the remote. Since yours is universal, you can use its "code search" (or equivalent) feature to find one for your Magnavox TV. If you sear through all codes stored in the remote without success, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not have all possible codes.

Can I program my new Emerson TV remote with the Magnavox TV if the model # match?


If it has set-up code to your magnavox device, you can. Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. One among it has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.

I lost the booklet with all the codes for my remote and i need the code to work my tv my tv is a symphonic


I suggest you try these steps..

1.Turn the television set on by pressing the "Power" button on the set.

2. Find the "Code Search" button on the Philips Magnavox remote. This button will be labeled or will be a different color than the other buttons on the remote (depending on which Philips Magnavox remote you own)

3. Hold the "Code Search" button down for about ten straight seconds. The light on the Philips Magnavox remote should then stay on.

4. Starting pressing either the "Up" or "Down" channel button on the Philips Magnavox remote. Continue pressing the same button until the television responds to the remote. It could take a few minutes for the channel to change so you'll need to have patience when searching for the remote code in this manner.

5. Press the power button on the Philips Magnavox remote once the channel has changes. If the device shuts off, press the power button again to turn the TV back on. If the TV turns on, the remote has been programmed correctly. Repeat the entire process if your remote is not programmed.

I hope this helps...

Code for Magnavox Univ remote


Try one of these codes:
018, 021, 023, 071, 085, 090

If those don't work, respond with the model for the remote and we'll try some others. Also, if remote requires 4 digit codes, just put a 0 in front of each of the above.

Universal Remote not working


With nearly all brands of universal remote control, there is usually more than one code for Philips. Keep going through the codes until you find one that works correctly.

So if you know that the 1st code doesn't work, then don't save it, and move to the next.

You may find that several codes will actually put the TV into standby, but other functions will be different.

27" MAGNAVOX W/ CHILD LOCK ON- NO REMOTE!


On those particular Magnavox TV's you have to use the original type of remote to power it back on then un-lock the parental lock. It is a bummer that nothing else will work. Here is a link to purchase a replacement remote.. http://www.electronicadventure.us/Merchant2/merchant.mv?screen=prod
