It should still be possible to use a universal remote to power on your TV.
Some universal remote instructions will say that the device has to be turned on in order to properly program the remote. This is not necessarily true, and you should still be able to use the universal remote to find a preset that will at least turn your TV on so you can then follow the instructions for the remote to find the exact preset that will work with every button on the remote.
First, look in the instruction booklet of the universal remote for the section of preset codes. It should be a huge list of 3-5 digit numbers with corresponding device names. There should be at least one or several for Philips devices. Find the code that matches your device.
Then, follow the instructions to program in that code. Should be something like: Hold down a certain button until the light on the remote blinks. Enter the code. Press another button to program the remote for that code. Keep in mind every universal remote is different and will have different steps to follow, but all generally work the same way.
At this point you'll want to just try the POWER button on the remote. If your TV turns on it means the code you entered is the correct code, or at least close to the right one. If it's not the exact correct code some of the other buttons won't work or will command your TV to do the wrong thing.
If your TV does not turn on with the first code you tried, you will need to program the remote with on of the other Philips codes. Just follow the same instructions you used to enter the first code and try another one from the list. Try the POWER button with each of the codes used until the TV turns on.
If none of the Philips codes work you will need to follow the universal remote's instructions to cycle through all of the codes (I have had to do this before). There should be another section of instructions that tell you how to do this. Again, try the POWER button for every code until the TV turns on. Once the TV is on, you will want to follow the instructions for the remote as normal to find the exact code preset that will work correctly with your TV.
If all else fails you might want to purchase a remote that is at least newer than the TV you are trying to operate because an older universal remote may not have the correct preset for a newer device.
Majority of the time when you get a soft type of scrolling or distortion it is a poorly made cable or connector causing bad signal. I would replace that RCA cord altogether and go to the top end with and HDMI cable. If this is not an option buy a newer upgraded version of the RCA cable. The ones that come with everything are only really good for in a pinch
Welcome to Fixya. I would like to know who is the provider of the remote so we can provide you with the code. example: AT&T, Comcast or etc.
Please provide the information needed to be able to fix the issue.
You need to put away the remote for your TV and use only the remote for your HT system. Your HT remote should work on your TV by default. Your Samsung HT remote should have a TV button and a DVD/Receiver button (or HT button). When using only the TV, press the TV button and then use it for just the TV and when using the HT system, press the DVD/Receiver button and then you can use the HT system.
If for some reason your TV is not set on the Samsung HT remote by default, your HT users manual should have a list of codes that you can use to program your HT remote. Hope that helps you. Gary
