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.

Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
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.
It appears the remote sensor in the Television itself has stopped working. If the TV is still under warranty I would try to contact the manufacturer to see what they can do for you. Can you still change channels manually? If so, this is most likely the case.
We had this problem with a 28PW6515. The control would work for 30 seconds after switching on, then nothing. It was diagnosed as the "glue chip" which handles all the control functions. About £200 to fix it as it's a surface mount chip.
As far as I know you need the remote to turn off the promo but try the store first where you bought it or try this addy. http://www.usasupport.philips.com/caseSu... or this # 1-888-PHILIPS. If they tell you you need a remote Go or http://www.remotes.com or call 1800- remotes
