What is the remote that you're trying to program? The one that comes with the player would not need to be programmed.

Its the one that comes with the Player its just not working any more we swicked the batterays thinking it was that but it is still doing nothing. So would i need to buy a new remote?

I see. We will need to first determine if the problem is with the remote or the IR sensor in the player itself.


IR or infrared light is normally not visible to the human eye. However IR signals can be visible through a digital camera viewfinder. You can use the viewfinder of a mobile digital camera, too. However some cameras seem to block IR range and IR may not be visible.

Problems with IR remote control or other IR interfaces like mobiles, laptops or printers with IR can be very difficult to diagnose.

  1. First check the basics. If it's a battery-operated device, ensure that the batteries are fully charged.
  2. Check the contacts of the battery. Remove any rust or particles on the battery contacts.
  3. Turn on and point your camera to the IR emission area, usually identified by a dark red plastic area.
  4. Press any button on the remote. If the IR device is a mobile, try sending a business card via IR.
  5. If the IR device is working, you'll find the light being emitted from the IR LED, usually with a blue tinge.

If the IR interface is not working, you'll not find any light being emitted. You can check any button on the remote by pressing the button and watching it on the camera.

well if i swich to a universal remote from cable america and the code under the modle is UR5U-8720L-CA would i be able to sinc the dvd player to the remote and if so what would be the code that i need?

Hello, If you determine that it is the Magnavox remote that is faulty, then you would be able to find codes listed for the Cable America remote in the manual that will come with their remote. It would be under DVD codes in the back of the manual.
