Question about Samsung LE32R41BD 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Open Question

Samsung 32" vchip set & cannot unlock

First of all, the remote I got in the box comes with a manual describing and depicting a COMPLETELY different remote with at least 10 buttons my remote doesn't have, so all of the setup instructions are completely useless. For example, it tells me to enter the new VCHIP code and hold the SETUP button. GUESS WHAT? I don't HAVE a SETUP buttom on MY remote.

Anyway, I tried 0000 and 1234, 9999, 8888, 1111 and the other usual suspects, but none of them turn off the pesky vchip. This board gives some advice about holding down 9 and QV but I don't have QV, either. : ((( I just want to watch TV!!

My 10-year-old got a big laugh at this for all the times he has figured out the codes and all the times he has been grounded, etc. I told him if you guys don't help me soon, he can only watch Care Bears and Barney until he's 12!!!

First test the wall outlet, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet see if it works. If the outlet works then read the following below. If the wall outlet doesn't work then plug the TV into another outlet.

If its not the wall outlet:

Unfortunately the power supply has a problem sustaining DC output. This can be caused from several fault scenarios. Get someone who is technically savvy and I will show them via e-mail what to test to fix this problem for you. Or you can take it to your local repair center.

If by regular cables you are talking about the standard red/yellow/white composite cables, then, yes, it will affect HD as composite cannot send an HD signal. Only HDMI and component (red/blue/green video only) cables.

Change to HDMI and let us know if it works for you.

SOURCE: TV will not turn on.

Same problem with mine. This is a typical problem with this television. You need to replace swollen capacitors on the power board.

HD worked with HDMI cables on HD Cable Box & ROKU3. Now only get SD transmission. Is it worth repairing?

On a 32' tv the repair probably wouldn't be worth it after labor costs. They're cheaper to replace with a new one and less of a hassle.

Our display is only coming in black & white.

Refer to your TV manual. Make sure you have the connections in their proper places. My new Samsung LED required a different set-up than my older LCD tv. I called Tech support and they referred me to the TV manual which depicts the correct way it should be connected to the tv.

Hold down the Vol - key on the TV. When Volume is at the minimum, hold down the 0 button on the remote. Remain holding both keys for at least 1 full second. Be sure your arm or hand is not obstructing the remote IR beam to the TVs IR receiver.

I have a samsung tv model # LNS2351W with a samsung remote control model # BN5900545A and I can not program it to the tv. I do not have the code or the users manual for the remote control, so I can't...

Have you been trying to set the program by manual (by TV buttons). If you can set it manually, aim the remote straight forward at the TV sensor and press then notice the light is responsed (blingking each pressing time). If it does not response, the problem may come from the sensor or remote. You need another good remote to isolate this problem. Alternatively, you can try this remote with another Samsung TV (if possible) to see how it works.
