Just had the TV repaired for the same issue. According to the shop it was a bad channel up/down switch. That impacted the other functions (menu not working, remote malfunction) because they're all intertwined. Only about a $75 fix here in the DC area, so maybe cheaper elsewhere.

Mr. Redneck, I am the other poster (wyke) who had similar problems with this tv. Am wondering if you ever got yours working properly. I keep thinking there might be a reset someplace but have not located anything yet. Have you had any luck? Wyke

Cant use menu


You may need a different remote. Is this a universal remote? Some of them have these common problems. Mine, for instance, doesn't use the OK button at all; instead, the Menu button counts as the OK button.

Try navigating the menu with the TV's volume / channel buttons (the ones on the TV itself, not on the remote). This usually works. Try that until you get a different remote.

Hello

Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.

  1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  4. Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.
Ok.

I need to re tune my samsung tv but have no remote any ideas?


you can always use the button on your Tv itself.

ie menu = Menu
Channel up/down = take you up and down
volume = goes left and right.

follow these steps

Menu,
channel down button to CHANNEL
press the volume button along
channel down button to AUTO STORE
press the volume button to Start the scan.

right now you have your telly tuned in. What you could do it get an old sky remote off a friend/ neighbour. or buy from argos etc ( a lot cheaper then getting a replacement samsung one)

press the following buttons on the sky remote to program it to work with your samsung tv.

TV,
RED + SELECT
TV.
0060

try the volume if this works press SELECT to save this code if it doesnt press Tv then try the volume again. repeat this step until the volume works your telly. once it doest dont forget to press the SELECT button to save.

Now you will be able to change your volume use the number keys. if you also press the HELP button on the sky remote this will also change your AV / SOURCE I hope this post helps you out. When it does please leave a thumbs up for me Please

Remote, menu button, volume up buttons dont work anymore


You need to open the remote unit and clean the touch pad contacts and the circuit board contact points with pure isopropyl alcohol.

Grease may have worked itself into the remote an has caused those button contacts not to produce the data signals.

No controls


this should be easy to fix. The first thing is to check the buttons. Make sure that the buttons ar not pushed in and they work. What I meen is that when you push a button make sure it makes a cliking noise when you push it and releas it. If it dose not that is your problem. If they all work, Unplug the tv for 30 min. then plug it back in. It should work after that. If the remote dose not work after unplugging the set, you may have internal problems
