The problem with these sets is for your problem you need an original remote to get into the main menu to "autoprogram" all the channels; some of these sets if you unplug the set loose the memory of the channels and it has to be reprogrammed using a remote.

The information below indicates the part number and a cost from a site on the internet--with that part number if you Google it you may find one for less.

Unless the set has a menu button that allows you to enter and attempt to auto program the channels you are going to need a replacement remote made for this set.

What's the imput button or code on remote for ten year old TV. Model #14MS2331/17


According to the manual for the Magnavox 14MS2331/17B, you switch to the A/V input by pressing Ch+ or Ch- on either the TV or the remote until you see AV as the current option. (Thus you have to scroll down from Channel 2 or up from Channel 69 for an OTA signal. For cable TV, the AV will be reached by Ch - from channel 1 or Ch + from channel 125.) See page 3 (7 of the PDF) here: http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/1/14ms2331_17b/14ms2331_17b_dfu_aen.pdf .

Since it is possible to skip channels by editing the channel list, you may need to check if the AV option has been skipped. To do this, press Menu. Use the up/down buttons to navigate to Install and press the right button to enter this menu. Highlight the Channel Edit line and press the right button to check this. Once in this sub-menu, use the left/right buttons to scroll through the Channel number options (or use Ch+/Ch- to see the stored list). You can also type in a channel number on the remote. Press the down arrow to change to the line that reads Skipped. Use the left/right arrows to change between Yes or No. (No indicates you can reach the channel with the Ch+/Ch- buttons.) Use the Up arrow to return to the channel number line to scroll to other channels. Press Status/Exit to leave the menu system. See page 10 (14 of the PDF) for details.

I hope this helps.

I lost the remote to my Toshiba cz27t31. I bought an RCA universal remote. The RCA manual says the tv should be set to channel 1. But I can't change the channel without the remote. So I am SOL! How...


  • You have to set the channel you want as a favorite first and you can do this from the TV. This is why the channels skip as you press up and down. Sometime or another those were someones favorite channels.
  1. Press "MENU" on the TV until "SET UP" appears on the screen.
  2. Now press ^ or v until "FAVORITE CH" appears in purple.
  3. Now press < or > to display the favorite channel FAVORITE CH menu.
  4. You will use < or > to got between "SET and "CLEAR."
  5. So now go to "SET" and press ^ or v until you get to channel 1.
  6. If you want to delete a channel first then select "CLEAR" and then add the channel you wish.
  • What your doing when you push the channel up and down on the TV buttons is going through the favorite channels. So make one of the favorite channels channel 1 and program your remote.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

How do i get regular tv channels no cable or direct tv. I have a 32' magnavox model #32MF338B/F7


Hello
I'm not sure about the model number of your TV, as here it is marked as both "27MS343S and 32MF338B/F7". Anyway I gies this solution as for the first denoted.
Insert antena to the antena socket at the back side of your TV marked as 75Ohms antena input.
[1] Press "Menu" button on the remote control handset to display menu on screen.
[2] Press "Vol+ or Vol--" button repetedly to hilight "TUN" [Tuner].
[3] Press "Ch+ or Ch--" button to hilight 'AUTOPROGRAM"
[4] Press "Vol+" to programming tv channels.
Tv will tune and store channels transmitted channels at that time, through entire bands, and will display the first channel receved after tuning process completed. It may take some minutes. You have to wait it to complete. After displaying the first channel, you can select your favourite channel Using CH+ or CH--" buttons. Ok.

Magnavox tv not responding to remotes


I came accross this question, because I've been looking for the remote code for my cable remote. I had originally put the TV remote somewhere in a box when I was moving years ago, Since my cable remote changes the channel, I've been doing the same as you all this time. Therefore, I totally understand your frustration on trying to understanding how to navigate within the menu: It's not what you would think would be a standard or logical way....

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: http://www.m4c.magnavox.com/files/1/15mf200v_37/15mf200v_37_dfu_aen.pdf

BTW, of any one know how I can program or get an RCN remote to use on this TV, please let me know!!!!

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 :)
