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!!!!

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.

VW37L 37 in. LCD HDTV input button wont work


Have you find out if the problem is with your remote control? For instance, you are able to control your TV using a Universal remote control. My 32" Vizio TV had a similar problem, initially thought it was related to my remote control but in fact the TV didn't respond either to an universal remote control of my SAT receiver that I eventually use to just turn on and off the TV. I've found out that the problem was with a little board on the TV located at the left down corner viewed from the front side of the TV and that receives the signal from the remote control. I found the board on ebay for about $5, replace it and the TV responded again to both original and universal remotes.

TV does not respond to remote commands,


I'm sure you've tried this, remote batteries is most common cause.
Make sure sensors on TV and remote are unobstructed(remote only works if line of sight to sensor is clear) and clean. Windex and Qtip. Damaged/dirty/defective remote, try different if possible (universal). If none of above works(99% chance), extreme longshot is TV circuitry.

Universal Remote


are you programming the remotes with the codes for the TV manufacturer, as most Universals have to be programmed to the manufacturers remote codes to function, or Most if not all universals have a scan for the code function, refer to the manuals did theTV originally come with a remote, I am assuming so, if it didn't the TV may not have an IR reciever for the remote to work.
If this helps, please give a fixya rating, every one 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.
