Question about Samsung PN50A650 49.96 in. Plasma HDTV

Side by side Samsung TV's need remote control solution

My elderly father is disabled and lives for TV. He has two Samsung TV's side by side in a small living room. One is a few years old: DLP model HLP616WXIAA; the other is a brand new Plasma model PN50A650.

He has DISH satellite service and has two DISH remotes (one DISH receiver provides separate tuning for both TV's). The problem is that either DISH remote changes both TV's. I have tried reprogramming one of the remotes using the Samsung remote codes from the manual(s), hoping that one code might work for just one model and not the other. If a given code works at all, it still controls both TV's.

Any ideas, other than returning the new plasma and getting a non-Samsung brand for his second tv?

If possible turn one off and tune the other. Then turn the other off and tune it. Then turn on the other. That is your only option at this point.

Is there a way to set a lower maximum volume? We have an elderly, mentally ill man living in our house, and he frequently maxes out the TV volume while others are trying to sleep.


you can put child lock password on the tv for volume control .. that should help. but an elderly person might not be able to hear properly then.

dont mind this advise ..but a pair of bluetooth headphones may work.

Volume intermittently increases all the way to 100 and cannot be controlled by the remote


This happens with some models. You can open the TV from the back and disconnect the connector for the side control board. You will only have control via the remote but your volume issue should be resolved.

Samsung 40 hd tv the vol will not come down from 100 percent . I try to turn the vol down and it will not turn down. what can I do. tks mike


I presume that the volume will not turn down from either the remote control or the volume buttons on the side of the tv. If the volume down button works on the side of the tv then the remote control is suspect to be faulty. If neither remote or tv volume buttons work then check whether the channel buttons work on the tv (not remote). If none of these work then check the input connection from the buttons /infra red reciver to the main pcb. This is a push on cable connector. As a point, also check that the volume up button on the tv is not stuck in, and feels the same as the other buttons when pressed.
