You shouldn't have to do anything after changing the batteries. Philips and Magnavox are the same brand, so the Philips univeral control should work your TV without programming it. Check the batteries and make sure your new ones are in facing the right direction. Also be sure the new batteries are actually good. I've fixed remotes for people by just changing the batteries again, even though the replacements were fresh out of the package. Also, did the old batteries leak in the remote? The battery contacts may have corrosion on them. There's also the chance the TV's remote sensor is at fault. If you can, try the remote with another Magnavox TV or program it for another device and see if it's working, or try another remote with your TV. If you need programming instructions for your remote, you can usually find them on the manufacturer's website.

I NEED TO PROGRAM A MAGNAVOX TV WITH A PHILLIPS UNIVERSAL REMOTE CONTROLL


Find codes and methods here.
http://www.docstoc.com/docs/23925020/Programming-Remote-Control-Brand-Codes-TV-Sets

If those codes dont work try the last three(or four) numbers of your TV's serial number.

On my universal remote is just a matter of holding down the TV button till the light stays on, then punching in the three digit TV code. When the TV turns off it's the right code. But read your manual for your controller.

NEED SONY CODES FOR PHILLIPS REMOTE


Universal Remote Control Simple Setup

* Point it at a TV set and press the Mute/Power button. (Mute button if TV is already on, or Power button if the TV hasnt already been turned on)

* Keep pointing it at the TV until the TV turns on or muted, most TVs respond in about 5 seconds, the most is up to 20 seconds. (Other universal television remote you find in stores take minutes to program and enter long confusing codes)

* Once the TV is muted or turns on, simply let go of button and you have total control. You can use the remote as if you had the original remote, and responds instantly. ENJOY YOUR FREEDOM of choices with our remote!
Most remote controls require minutes of programming a universal remote code into each television while you read the confusing instruction manual.

Philips universal remote codes


For the majority of phillips/magnavox universal remotes: Hold code search button down till red light satys on. Press the tv button and the red light should blink and stay lit. With the tv on, push the power button repeatedly until the tv turns off.(dont push the power button again after the tv turns off or it will go to the next code). Push the mute button to save the setting.
