Question about Samsung TXN2730F 27" TV

Remote control sensor broken

My Samsung TV recently stopped recognizing the remote controller. I changed the batteries and tried a universal remote, but it's still not working. I assume it's a problem with the IR sensor. Is this an easy problem that can be fixed by a novice, or should I try to take it to a repair shop? If I take it to a shop, what should I expect to pay?

My samsung 3D led multisystem smart TV remote control does not work anymore

It needs to be Re-Paired to the TV.

First, fresh batteries, and clean battery contacts if needed.

Then, Try Pairing procedure:
  1. TV off
  2. Bring remote within 3 feet of TV
  3. Push Pairing button (Paper Clip or other pointed object in button hole)
  4. Turn on TV
  5. Should be paired. Try remote channel or other buttons.
  6. If not, try 2 more times.
  7. If still not working, push RESET button first and repeat Pairing.

Samsung remotes for LED / LCD TVs are generally RF, not IR.
Most Universal remotes do not generate RF signals, so disregard advice about codes for Universals.

Please rate if Helpful.

Good Luck !!

  1. TV off
Within 3 feet of TV

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Clean the battery contacts inside its battery compartment. If these do not help you, you remote control need cleaning. If you wish to know more about how to clean and repair a remote control check this site. Pull up older posts. One among it has details.

Problem with remote control or TV sensor? (Sanyo lcd32xr8da)

From your detailed description, I assumes that the infrared sensor inside your TV has the fault. This part can be loacated just behind the infrared sensor window at the front panel of the TV. You have to open the TV, and desolder it out from position, note the type used, and repalce it. There are so many types of these. Pictures of some are attached here.

I have a 32" insignia LCD TV. My remote stop

You can reset your remote control by removing the batteries, pressing all of its buttons, and installing new batteries. Also, ensure that your TV's sensor is clean and unobstructed. If the problem persists, try using a universal remote control as a troubleshooting step. This will help identify whether the original remote or the TV is at fault.

My remote control just stopped working to control the volume or channels. Changed batteries...what else can I do?

make sure nothing is damaged on the remote. after doing so unplug you're tv. when the tv is turned back use the remote close to the tv and use the remote. make sure the sensor on the tv is not blocked by anything (movies,books anything). if it still isn't working consider buying a replacement

Sounds like problem is with TV. Make sure the remote sensor on the TV is not blocked, it is located at the lower right part of the front of the TV.

Goog day. I have a Samsung LE40A559 LCD TV and about a week ago it stopped responding to the remote. Remote itself is working as when the TV is off and I push buttons on the remote the blue light on TV...

The flashing blue light shows that the TV is receiving I.R. from the remote but doesn't mean that the signal being received is recognized by the Samsung. If you have a "universal" remote then your TV code may need to be re-entered/reprogrammed...changing batteries in a "universal" will usually require it to be reprogrammed.

Also...because of the remotes construction (rubber membranes with carbon dots that short across PC traces) I've seen certain buttons stop working altogether.

Samsung TV remote. I noticed today my TV remote wasn't working. I changed the batteries and noticed there had been some leakage from the AAA batteries. Since changing the batteries the 8 buttons on the top...

Giving you some hints. Battery leakage is one enemy of tv control and other remote control. They can corrode your battery spring contact, give contact bridges with neighboring tracks that can cause erratic behavior of your remote.

Some repairs can be done but doesn't guarantee success. First is try to clean the corrosion on battery contact = no power usually. Erratic behavior cause by contact bridging = battery leak residues.

Opening a remote control. Some have screws on its small foot. Covered by a rubber or sticker. Some are notch clip in strategic location you have to fry that one by one, opening first on its weakest side. In some don't want to be open.

Cleaning the board by a soft eraser is one way. After you open the remote. Commonly the button area where contact takes place.

If the first procedure and cleaning doesn't work. Buy new remote or use universal remote controller.

My remote's batteries fell out & it stopped working.

Check and make sure that the batteries are getting full contact on each end...often when an electronic device falls and actually forces the batteries out on impact, the contact points are spread apart and prevents full contact on both ends of the battery(s). You can lightly bend the contacts in the remote just slightly... Just enough to get a full contact. If it has springs then assume that there is already full contact there. Secondly if you think you have full contact with the batteries then the next thing is that it may have some internal damage to the remote. (which can be ALOT of different problems) This is a simple solution possibility..Otherwise try a new set of batteries. If its still a no-go then it will require a replacement unless you know how to fix circuit boards.
