SOURCE: PROGRAMING MY MAGNAVOX UNIVERSAL REMOTE CONTROL

http://www.remotecodelist.com/remotes/magnavox/Philips-Magnavox_PM525S.pdf
This is the user's manual for a Phillips remote control. There is a list of codes in it. They should be rather universal. There's also instructions as to how to program it. I believe that there is a way to program it without using the codes.

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.

4. 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.

Hope this helps :)

I'm not sure of your model number but those remotes use the NEC codes and the variants on the NEC codes. If that code set is not the databse, you may have to "learn" it on your particular remote.

Good luck

Sometimes a universal remote wont work with a particular brand. I know the same problem exists for Emerson and Syvania tv's and many other 2nd tier brands as well. Try seeing if you can find the customer support number for your tv. Maybe you can then get the parts department in ordering an exact replacement for your set. If you cannot do so, try 1-800 remotes or their website. They will ask for your model number. Let me know if that helps.

Code Search Method
  1. Turn on the device you wish to program.
  2. Press and hold CODE SEARCH until the indicator light lights, then release.
  3. Press and release the device you are programming (tv,vcr, or dbs). The indicator light will blink once then remain lit.
  4. Press and release off-on until your device turns off. You may have to press off-on up to 200 times.
  5. When your device turns off, press the ENTER button and the indicator light will go off.

Universal remote has lost it programming and wil not operate tv. I need codes and to know how to enter them into the remote.The tv is a SylvaniaModel 6424TF Please respond. Thanks you Pauline


Hi, I have a few things for you to try.
1. Your TV "6424TF" seems to have problems with its IR "Infra-red" sensor going bad. This is a common problem with your model TV. If this is the case no remotes will work on your TV.
2. Because I do not know the model of your universal RCA remote I cannot tell you how to program it.. please supply the model number of it. Try looking under the battery cover. might be an "RCR..." number. I need to know this because all universal remotes have different codes and programming methods.
3. To know 100% if its your TV that's bad you will need the original remote for your TV. I have already looked up your original remote and you can purchase a brand new replacement that will work right out of the package (assuming your TV IR sensor isn't broke) here: RR0108UD for all sylvania TVs . no programming is necessary for this remote.

I broke my daenyx remote and i cant turn my t.v on and i cant find a universal remote that will work or any codes


The Harmony 600 will work with a Daenyx tv. It costs about $80.00 and codes are provided by the Harmony website during programming. The site just needs the product name and model number.

Need universal remote


You should have no trouble getting a universal remote to work the basic functions: power, tape motion, etc. But you may have problems with advanced functions such as programming or accessing any special features the model may have. Often only the original remote has all the buttons needed. Universal remotes don't usually give complete control. If you're just looking to play tapes, you should be good with any basic universal remote that.

Hard to say what the code is without knowing the model number of the remote and the brand of TV.

RCA's website has a remote code finder you can use.

If your replacement remote control is pre-programmed, it would be impossible to program the "right" code. You may have to try a different universal remote control. All universal remote controls do not contain all possible codes.
