I have a Samsung 55in curved TV. It has auto dimming. In the evening with the lights out it dims to where it is difficult to see the picture. Can I get rid of the auto dimming?

If the brightness on your TV changes automatically (randomly dims and brightens), you may need to adjust the:
  • Eco Sensor function.
  • - And / Or -
    • Energy Saving function.
    The Eco Sensor and Energy Saving functions adjust the brightness of the TV to reduce power consumption.
    • When you set the Energy Saving function to Auto, the TV changes its brightness automatically depending on what you are watching on the TV.
    • When you set the Eco Sensor to On, the TV changes its brightness automatically depending on the brightness of the room.

This function is not available sign keeps coming on

Sounds like a problem with the remote where a function button on the remote is being pressed for a function which is not on the TV. Could be a fault in the remote or moisture or some other foreign body which has gotten into the remote. Try removing the batteries from the remote or covering the infra red receiver sensor on the TV. Hopefully this will stop it. It may alternatively be some other infra red source which is confusing the TV. The TV generally won't have unavailable functions in its own menu so it's most likely the remote. Hope this helps

My avol tv is not showing pictures and the remote is not functioning. now, what can I do so that the tv and the remote can function

Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician

Cannot get the remote to function. have tried universal remote and proper code for the tv

Check and make sure there is no dust or anything on the sensor on the television set. Its possible the sensor konked out on you but this happened to be one time and I checked out the sensor and dust had built up tremendously on the sensor dot.

Brand new replacement RM-ED0009 remote will not function. New batteries fitted. Suspect TV fault - advice, please


it might be from the TV remote sensor. To confirm this, test the remote with another TV and if the remote works, then it would be obvious that the remote sensor of your TV is dead.

Take care.

OK.. These are photo-sensors for auto-convergence function and without these sensors, auto-convergence function will not work properly.

Remote will not function with TV

If two remotes do not work. I would say the IR sensor on the front panel of the TV might be defective.
Can you provide an exact TV model number to try to locate an IR sensor part suppier?
