Samsung DVD Player remote buttons activate Samsung TV settings

I have recently bought a Samsung Bluray DVD recorder (BD-E8500A) which is attached to my Samsung TV. My difficulty is that when I press the HOME button on the DVD Recorder's remote it activates the TOOLS option on the TV's remote. As a result I can't delete programs I have recorded. The manual provides no information on how to delete recorded programs, however I once managed to do it by pressing the HOME Button. What am I missing?

Try connecting your DVD recorder directly to the source (satellite/cable box) and then to the TV.

Blu ray shows the "Blu ray Disc" Logo on TV screen and then just show a black creen


Hi! and welcome to Fixya!

It looks like your tv is unable to handle the output video resolution from your bluray. The reason why you do not have picture on the tv screen after the bluray disc logo appears.

You can follow the instruction below to set the video resolution on your player to its lowest resolution:

1. Using your bluray remote control, press the following buttons in order... STOP button (press and release) ....HOME button (press and release)....POP UP/MENU button ( press and release )
Note: press the buttons in order with 1 second interval. Make sure tv and bluray are ON when you try this. If first attempt nothing happens, try this again.

2. When the home menu screen appears after doing the above instruction, you can set the video resolution again manually. Follow the instruction:
Using the BD remote control press HOME button > then go to SETUP > select screen settings > then change OUTPUT VIDEO RESOLUTION to Auto > change also 24P OUT to 1080P // set the BD-ROM 24P OUTPUT to Auto

The next time you turn on the bluray player you will have picture again.

Let me know if this works!

Yes, the reason for this is that the BD-Receiver/TV button was pressed twice. This button has 2 modes of operation depending on the color it flashes when you press any button on the remote. If the BD-Receiver/TV button flashes green then it is in TV mode and if it flashes orange then it is in BD Receiver mode. The way to switch between the 2 modes is simple but not intuitive and easily not noticed. Simply press the BD-Receiver/TV button it will light-up green or orange, depending on what mode it is in, for about 1 second. The trick is to quickly press it again BEFORE the light goes out. When this is done the color of the light will change. If it was green it will change to orange and vice versa. Rember, Orange = BD Receiver function Green = TV
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Bdp s350 sony bluray player.


I would just like to add that I have a Sony BDP-S500 player and a Sony TV.

The Sony TV's remote was preprogrammed to control the Bluray player, which i discovered by accident, so I didn't have to mess with universal remote control codes or anything.

Hope that helps.
