I've changed the batteries in my Philips Universal Remote and I still cannot get it to change. What should I do?


heres a handy little trick to determine whether your remote control is working. Get hold of a radio and switch it to AM band receive (any frequency). Hold the remote control near to the aerial and press any of the buttons..you should hear a squeeling noise from the radio.This proves that the remote control is working and that the TV is at fault. If you dont hear any noise from the radio, your remote control is faulty and you can obtain a new remote from the link below.

If you hear squeeling from the radio during the remote control test, then the TV infra red receiver board is faulty, and is located behind the small clear glass lense on the front bottom front casing of the TV. Hope this helped :)

Lost remote


Philips makes several universal remotes that are sold by stores like Walmart and Target. Look for one that has a menu button so you can access all the functions of your TV. You may not even have to program the remote if its made by Philips.

Tv is showing red shadow


I understand that you already have 'universal' remotes but the link below refers to Philips brand remotes that may access the settings you now need:
Remotes 
I can't say how responsive Philips is today but it might be worthwhile to email them with the model numbers of your set and the remotes offered above to see if they will let you kow if either of those will access the adjustment settings you need.
I wish the makers of those aftermarket remotes would introduce some honesty into their spiel by calling their NON-universal remotes 'multibrand' instead. I have a half-dozen so-called universal remotes in my junk drawer, including even a 'learning remote' that still doesn't program with the original.

Remote control


Try installing a pair of new alkaline batteries into the remote. If the problem persists, I would suspect the remote is defective and return it to the store for a refund. I have used Philips remotes twice before, and had problems with both of them. I switched to a One-for-All universal remote, and it has been trouble-free, so far.

Magnavox 52" Inch TV - The buttons on front will not work


If you do not have the manual for it, download it here:

http://www.nodevice.com/user_manual/philips/tv_projection1/51mp392h17.html

Check to see if the set has a parental lockout that might be active.

You can buy an original remote here:

Be cautious about buying a 'universal' remote, I've got a couple to sell - cheap.
They aren't very universal.
