Expert:  John Baker replied 7 years ago.
The codes to enter into the Maganvox remote are 0089, 0183 or 0185. If none of these codes work I would suspect you have a detective remote. If you need to replace the remote, I recommend the One For All remotes. They will work on any device requiring a remote and have very good support options.

Reply to XXXXX XXXXX's Post: On my instructions for the remote to program in it says to enter 3 digit code and you gave me four digits I tried these and this did not work This is the third universal remote that I have tried and none of them work Thank you anyway but I cannot acept your answer as it did not work
Expert:  John Baker replied 7 years ago.
Your acceptance is not necessary if you are not happy with any answer. Just Answer wants to to be happy with the answers and hopefully you will tell your friends about the site. I recommend the One For All remotes. If the One For All will not work on your TV, there would have to be a defective infered reciever in the TV. The One For All remote is the best on the market as far as I am concerned, and they have great suport.

Reply to XXXXX XXXXX's Post: I am calling the cable person to come ut to my house and I have to pay him 29.00 so I guess your answer is not acceptable. Thank you anyway
Expert:  Stephen replied 7 years ago.
Before you call the cable guy, here is something to try..



Magnavox universal remotes only accept three digit codes, and so you have to drop a number to get them to work.



That doesn't always work. so you can try the search method

Search Mode Method


1- Turn ON your TV


2- Press SET button for approximately 2 seconds


3- Press TV button .


4- Repeatedly press and release VOL+ button until TV goe's OFF


5- Press SET button.



Let me know if this works for you.



Also the Toshiba TV codes listed above are wrong.. They should be :

1025,1030,1042,1046



Hope this helps.
