I have a Philips 27T500 C101 TV that was working well, but one day when adjusting the PIP the TV stopped responding to the remote. Batteries in the remote check out OK at 1.43 volts each. Power button works on the TV as do the Channel and Volume buttons. But I miss the mute feature of the remote when those commercials come on !!
I bought a Philpis Universal remote but none of the program codes would make the TV respond. I was able to program other codes for the remote to control the Sharp VCR and the KOSS DVD, so I beleive the remote is OK.

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.
Hi, Unfortunatly, Philips had a design flaw from the manufacturer. You will need to have it serviced by a technician,but the replacement part is called an I.R. Board. It should only cost about 2 or 3 dollars,but the labor is the main cost of the repair,which you have a warranty for.
You can get the actual remote control for that model at the following link. If your not sure which one it is just leave them a email with your model number and they will respond quickly. Heres the link. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
I had this exact same problem. After a week or so it started responding to the remote control again. Then after a couple of days it stopped responding. This problem came and went for about a month, then one day the entire TV went dead. When I powered it on, the green light appeared for 2 seconds followed by a sequence of 6 flashing red lights that repeated. I brought my set in to a repair shop and they replaced the power supply board. That fixed the problem and now the TV powers up and responds to the remote control again. Total charge was $250. That was very disappointing for a $1,500 TV that was only 18 months old. I'm going to let Philips know how disappointed I am in their product!
Find a universal remote with a menu and four arrow keys, b/c Philips is out of the original. Or, you could call Philips and find the number for one of their authorized centers - a TV repair man may have a stockpile of them from cust's who abandon their TVs.
