How to Program Magnavox TV Remote Control to TV

By Greyson Ferguson

All Philips Magnavox televisions currently for sale come equipped with a remote control. The remote can control everything in regards to the television. The nice thing about Magnavox television remotes is how you can also control other media devices, such as a connected DVD or VCR. Connecting the different devices allows you to avoid sifting through multiple remotes just to power something on.

Things You'll Need

  • Magnavox remote control

Step 1

Look up the connection code for your particular television. You should have a manual with the remote control; however, if you're not sure where the manual is, a link is provided in the Resources section that has a list of codes for different television makes.

Step 2

Power on the television manually (press the "Power" button on the set).

Step 3

Hold down the "Code Search" button until the light on the remote flashes red and stays lit.

Step 4

Press the television code in the remote. Make sure you are pointing the remote at the television. If the code is correct, the red light should stop flashing.

Step 5

Press the channel up button on the remote. If the television channel changes, the programming was a success. If not, you may need to try a different code (most television brands will have multiple codes associated with them)
