Re: Sylvvania 27" tv will not respond to universal...
It seems that there is problem with the remote receiver circuit of your tv since your remote is working alright with the other tv. inspect for possible cold solder on that circuit or failing component, but if you are not inlined with kind of job, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!

read the directions at the part where it says manually program, you have to do certian functions then push the channel up and down until tv responds then its programmed, this is actually finding the code as you go, instructions will explain it all because ech universal is just a little diff in its manual process.
unplug tv for about half a hour and replug it back in to reset it and see if that works..I also have that big remote and it worked find for me the first time so maybe tv just needs to be reset. hope that helps
On those particular Magnavox TV's you have to use the original type of remote to power it back on then un-lock the parental lock. It is a bummer that nothing else will work. Here is a link to purchase a replacement remote..
