Samsung TV has a "Line In" when turned on

A friend gave me a Samsung TV/VCR Combo with the remote. I bought an GE Universal Remote, but can't tell if it's accepting any codes because I can't get it to do anything else but say - "Line In". Can someone give me some kind of clue as to fix this problem?

Howdy Mike-d. here,
Hi CindyCee,

You wrote your friend gave you a remote with the combo, does that remote work?, if it does, there should be a button on it labeled "Line In" 3rd one down from the right side. My guess would be that it toggles the "Line-In" status. Does that remote turn the combo on and off or control anything on the combo?, if so, that's a good start, if not check the batteries, make sure you got some good ones in it, you might also take the remote somewhere to get tested, like Radio Shack, or somewhere there is a IR(Infra-Red) beam detector, you will be able to see a flashing light on the detector from the remote when you press a button. I think Radio Shack still sell those little detector things. As far as your G.E. Universal Remote you bought, it should have instructions and codes that were packaged together with it, unless you got it unpackaged together. Does your Universal control anything on the combo ? Can it turn the power on and off ? If so, you got a code that works some of it. There maybe other codes that work better, check your other post on Jan 20th for the codes and instructions. The universal should have a "Input" button on it, try it and see if it gets you where you wanna go.
Good Luck, feel free to ask if you got any question about my posts.
Mike-d, out
I understand my e-mail probably doesn't link right, but anyone feel free to e-mail me if you think I can help you.

Need a code for zenith/vcr combo.


Program a GE Universal Remote Using Code Search Make sure the device for which you want to program the remote is turned on, and that the GE universal remote has good working batteries in it. Batteries that are weak may keep the universal remote from being programmed. Press and hold the Setup or Code Search button. Again, the name of the button will vary between GE universal remote models. Once the indicator light is lit, you can stop pressing the button. Press the button with the name of the device for which you want to program the GE universal remote (such as TV or DVD) and release it immediately. The indicator light should flash a time or two and then simply stay lit. Now all you have to do is point the GE universal remote at the device you selected, press the Power button and release it. The catch is that if the device does not turn off, you must wait at least two seconds and try again. The GE universal remote will attempt to program the right code for the device, cycling through all of its built-in codes. This can take up to 250 attempts. When the universal remote (finally) catches the right code and is programmed, the device will power off. Once this happens, press the Enter or Save button on the GE remote to complete the programming process. and for free

Universal Remote Woes


Email sent: Most univ remotes provide a method of scanning codes. Example: You set the TV on, select TV on the remote, put it into code scan mode, scan TV codes 1 at a time and when the TV turns off, store the code. This should be in the remote's manual. Hope that helps... Geno

How can I turn to AV without a remote control (Samsung TV/VCR 19in Combo)


I had this problem with my TV/VCR combo unit (Samsung CXC1972) after losing the remote while in the dorms. I tried a few different universal remotes and dozens of codes before I tried the Philips 3 device universal remote as pictured below with code 037 programmed into the VCR/DVD button. I can't change the volume with this code but the input key switches between line in and tv. You can also change the channel, access the menu and operate the VCR functions with the code. I bought the remote for less than $10 at Walmart so it might be worth a try, and if it doesn't work you can always bring it back. Hope this helps.98fe8a9.jpg
