Instructional program for Magnavox won't turn off, and can't use the remote
Hi I obtained a 1994 Magnavox t.v. from my brother. I was using a universal RCA remote for which my boyfriend put in the code and that worked fine. Then I apparently pressed buttons I shouldn't have because now an instructional program for Magnavox keeps running automatically and I can't get it to turn off. The t.v. no longer responds to the remote. I also can't use the buttons on the t.v. The only way I can turn it off is to unplug it!
How do I "reset" it and get this program to stop running?

I just did a search today because my kids have the same tv. I found out if you push the volume + and channel + at the same time for about 5 seconds, the tv shuts off and resets. It is in factory mode. Give it a try, if that doesn't work try volume - and channel - at the same time.

If your Philips/Magnavox remote is pre-programmed, try pressing a device button other than TV and see what happens. If your remote is universal, you can use code search to find something that will work.

Hi there! In order to be able to provide the definite codes that will allow you to program your remote to your Magnavox Blue Ray DVD player, I would need the type of remote that you have- this can be found on the back of your remote, it would be displayed as something along the lines of 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, etc. To obtain a few codes that will likely allow you to successfully program the remote I used 5.0 because it is a common remote that is used with quite a few of our DISH Network receivers. The codes you can try for your DVD player would be, 829 (most successful) if not then please try the following, 685, 533, 554, or 556. After trying those codes if your attempts are still unsuccessful you can also check the manual that came with the DVD player from the manufacturer or just contact us here at DISH Network - although I do know sometimes the remote codes can be located in the manual. Hope the codes help & work for you!
There are numerous codes listed for a magnavox dvd player (URC4220 user manual page 36) as the manual doesn't give definative code as there are quite a few different magnavox dvd players, you will need to try each of these codes in turn and one should work:
0503, 0539, 0646, 0675, 0821, 1268
If you need the manual for this particular remote then you can use the link below to take you to the one for all remote control support site where you can enter your remote control model number and view or download the manual this may also help you to program your remote.
