Question about Samsung PN50A650 49.96 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

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.

I have a freeview set top box Alba and i need a code for my universal remote


Use code search on the remote to find something that handles some or all functions of your Alba STB. If the search is unsuccessful, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not contain all possible codes.

How do I get live tv with my fire stick


I have no experience of these but as they work by connecting to the internet nothing is live in the conventional sense but streamed either from a single or a series of websites the firestick is programmed to log on to. The website(s) will usually provide a mixture of "live" tv, catch up tv available for a limited time, archive material and special programming and some movies.

What you get will depend on what is available free and what needs to be paid for, your internet/wireless connection and how good you are at reading instructions and operating the remote, assuming the firestick is working correctly.

A friend had a problem with connected tv and it turned out some of the sites took a long, long time to load and he was impatient and assumed it wasn't working.

One for all universal remote i am trying to program my seiki television. I lost the original remote and the power button on the television is broken so I cant turn the television on


Always better to buy a genuine replacement. The problem is that if I remember correctly, Seiki don't actually make the television, which is why it never features in the Remote Code Lists. I have just checked three sites.

Veon tv manual


The eject button on the remote appears as an upward-pointing arrow with an underline - see below image. The eject button on the TV has a similar symbol.

However, I suspect that in your case, you might not be having a Remote.

This link says that your TV doesn't come with a Remote and DVD cannot be ejected without the remote :

Need instructions to add TV button to AKB36157102


1. While pressing and holding down the TV POWER button, press the CHANNEL UP or CHANNEL DOWN repeatedly until your TV is turned on (or turned off if you had it on). 2. Release TV POWER button when the TV turns on or off. The remote's TV POWER button will now control the TV.
