To program a Magnavox universal remote control, find and enter the four-digit code that connects your remote to your television. If you don't have access to four-digit codes, you can perform a code search to program the remote.
- Find the correct four-digit code
In your Magnavox universal remote control manual, look up the code for the television you wish to control by brand name. Write down or memorize the code. If you do not have access to the four-digit codes, skip to step 3 to search for the code manually.
- Enter the code
Turn on your television, and hold down the Set button for about two seconds. Then, press the TV button. Using the numeral pad, enter the four-digit code. Press the Set button again. Your Magnavox universal remote is programmed to control your television. Test the remote to make sure that it turns your television on and off properly.
- Search for the code manually
If you cannot find your four-digit code or if the code you entered did not work, perform a manual code search. Turn on your television, and hold down the Set button for about two seconds. Press the TV button. Press the Vol+ button repeatedly until your television turns itself off. Press the Set button.
