Question about Samsung TV Remote Control
When I first inherited this old TV the remote would hardly work at all and the batteries would go flat after a day or two. I pulled the remote apart and cleaned every thing and now it works fine but the batteries still go flat. Can't find a user manual anywhere for it. A new remote is $90- better to by a new TV for that money, a generic learning remote is $25 but does not have all the functions. Any simple answer you can suggest? Thanks!

I HAVE THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM.
Confirmed with Samsung tech support. Problem is with remote. to fix, simple take the batteries out of the remote. Press and hold the UP Volume button for 2 Mintues (no cheating, it has to be at least 2 minutes), this Reset's the Remote Control. Put the batteries back in. Bob's your uncle. all fixed.

I had the same problem. The problem is strange and seems to be with the receiver in the TV and not the remote control. The reason I say this is that when this first happened my Samsung brand DVD could actually control the TV. This then also failed, but still works fine with the DVD player.
Anyway there is an even more bizarre fix to all this......
- Remove the batteries from your TV remote. - Press and hold the red (ON/OFF) button for at least 1 min. - Replace the batteries and hey presto!!
I know seems far fetched but I found it on the Samsung website and it does work.
