Need help for TV remote to work for 19" Magnavox 19PRC10121 tv

I need to know how to reset or activate my Magnavox remote for a 19" Magnavox TV. The batteries have been changed out recently power, volume, and channel buttons will now not respond. Is there possibly a code to reset the remote/tv?

Model# 19PRC1 0121
Serial# 36857657

Chassis Model# 19G601-00AA
Manufactured: June 1994

    Thank you for the quick response. However, the Magnavox remote that came with the television does not have a code search button or "red" flashing indicator light that is shown for the link you provided.

    The link shows a CL032 Universal Remote (PN: GMIPM435S).

    The remote I have is black plastic with only Volume, Channel, Select, and a setup button on the top right hand corner. There are no model numbers, serial, or ANY type of identification on the outside of the remote either.

    Please note though, there are no red flashing indicators for this remote. I believe this is just a standard remote that came with the tv. Not a Universal type remote. At this point due to the tv being old I may have no other choice than to purchase a Universal remote ..if needed.

    Thank you again for the speedy reply. I don't have the remote in front of me at the moment but I do believe that there is no menu button on this remote. There is though I remember a small (reset) button on the bottom right hand side.

    The .pdf file provided shows a remote that is not the same as mine to perform the reset to Factory Defaults setting from the remote to the TV.

    Is there a user manual for this specific model? Magnavox 19" Standard Model# 19PRC1 0121

    I have researched for hours but have come up w/ nothing.

    Thanks Guru for your help!

    Here is a picture of the remote I have. According to the website it is no longer available and they list a substitute remote that is available in its place.

    At this point, that may be the only option right now.

    Thanks Masteria

    Again, there are no red indicator lights, code search button, or menu button on the remote I have as shown in the picture/link above (Left hand side). 19PRC10121 Original Remote (No Longer Available).

    The remote I have is not universal in order to perform a code search function on the remote. It could be the IR Transducer going bad though as you mentioned. Hopefully, just replacing the remote with a new Universal remote from Walmart might get the TV working again....problem solved.

    If not, in that case guess it's time to look for a replacement tv.

    Thanks for you help ...If any more ideas please let me know....I'll be glad to try them.

    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:

    hmm seems problem like it is probably the IR receiver inside the tv. BUT: Could be a dirty
    lens. Or, you might have something blocking the beam. Move the remote
    right up close to the eye on the tv and see if that helps.

    To replace or repair the IR receiver you must find the part somewhere -
    it is an old set - and pull the old one out and put the new on in.
    They are usually a small module type device, but on some older sets
    are discreet parts. Could be just the IR transducer itself. Replacing
    the light sensitive diode is easy to do.

    Try and see if they have the part you will need. Maybe that will be a solution for you.

    Hope this helps.

    or take a one more try

    Programming with Code Search

    1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.

    2. Press and hold Code Search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button.

    3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blink, then stays lit.

    Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the
    device could be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks,
    then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press
    the Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until the
    device changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction to
    forward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code.

    The above assumes that you want to store the VCR you want under the VCR but, Cable codes under the CBL, etc

    Note: if the device does not have a chat channel at a button, you should Play (VCR only) or Power instead.

    Here is a Code List on PDF that shoud be universal for most remotes. It worked for me.
