The TV was turn ON for the first time or the TV reboot/reset.
Universal remotes are not as "universal" as we like them to be. They only control a very, small amount of options for the TV.

You'll need the remote that came with the TV to fix this problem because it has the special RED, GREEN, YELLOW, and BLUE buttons you need.
If you don't have the original remote, you can get one at this web site. It's the best price going right now. $29.95

I have a philips SRU3003WM universal remote im trying tn program to work on a magnavox tv model TR2510 C101 but cant find the codes to do so

The codes for Magnavox are 0807, 0002, 0502, 0919, 1914, 0224, 0430, 0247, 0402, 0408, 0109, 0715. Enter the code in the Setup and then check if the remote does any feature other than on/off.

You can search through all the codes as well. Turn on the TV. Press and hold the Setup button until the light remains lit. Press the TV button. Press Channel Up repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the channel changes on the TV. (If you miss this, press Channel Down to backtrack). Press the Mute button to set the code. Check if the TV responds to other functions of the remote. Continue the search as above if it doesn't work for all desired functions.

However if your TV was released less than 6 months before the remote was programmed or is newer than the remote, the code you need may not be in the programming.

I hope this helps.

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...
