I suggest getting yourself a universal remote.
You can find the remote control codes for different brands of devices from
http://www.hifi-remote.com/ofa/codes-tv.shtml#tv

If none of the codes work then we have two other solutions:

1. Searching For Your Code

If you have tried all of the set-up codes for your brand of equipment ,or your brand is not listed, and you are still not able to get the unit to respond, try the following procedure to search for your code.
If you don't find a code that works, the remote will flash four times when you reach the end of all the codes for this device type.

  1. PRESS the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.), then RELEASE.
  2. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
  3. ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)
  4. ALTERNATE slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY instead of POWER)
    Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You may have to press this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the entire library of codes.
  5. When your device turns OFF, PRESS the SETUP button and RELEASE it to lock in the code for your device.

2. Learn the buttons from the original

Line up your original remote and the head-to-head before completing the following steps.
  1. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.
  2. PRESS 9 - 7 - 5, the red LED will flash twice.
  3. PRESS the DEVICE key where you wish to learn the function. The next 3 steps must be completed within 10 seconds.
  4. PRESS the button that will receive the learned function, the LED will flash rapidly.
  5. PRESS the button on the original remote to be learned.

Now you can repeat steps 3 through 5 to learn other functions onto other keys or press and hold SETUP until the Cinema's red light flashes twice to lock in your new feature. (If the red light does not blink twice, stop and repeat steps through 6).
To test the new feature, press and release the device key in which the new feature was learned followed by the key on which the feature was learned

More help for programming your remote can be found here:

Hope that helps!

I'm having problems programing my Philips RC19041006/01 remote that came with a Philips 15pf9936/37 15" LCD TV to work on a Magnavox MDV21001F7 DVD Player


Unfortunately, you will not be able to program your TV remote for the DVD Player. The MDV2100F7 was produced in 2010. Your Philips TV was has a manual with a copywrite date of 2003. Other documentation on the Philips site is from 2004 and 2006. (I am assuming that the MDV2100F7 is your model since no MDV21001F7 is listed at Magnavox or Funai (which made the unit).)

The codes in a universal remote control are only for devices released 6 months or more before the remote was programmed. A DVD player released 4 years later is likely to have a different set of control frequencies.

You need a newer remote or control everything with separate remotes. I wish that I had better news for you.

(The manual for the Philips TV is available from the Philips product site. For the Magnavox DVD player documentation, see the Magnavox (http://www.magnavox.com ) site or the Funai support site (http://www.funai.com/us ). At Funai, search for the model number but leave off the brand. They make units for a number of brands.)

Remote Control Code for Magnavox mdv-430 dvd player


Yes, a Philips replacement remote should be an excellent choice for your Magnavox DVD player, since they are sister companies. I am using the inexpensive Philips URC US2-PH5DSS and it works well. Your Philips remote will come with a page with all manufacturer codes listed by the type of device. Or you can visit the Philips URC code lookup website at www.urc.philips.com.

The codes listed for Magnavox DVD players are:
0441, 0442, 0447, 0599, 0799, 0699, 0247, 0193, 0093, 0598 You'll have to try them one at a time to see which works best for your player's functions.
