Question about Samsung DVD-V5500 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Remote control doesn't work

The unit itself is fine but the remote suddenly stopped working. Obvious things like batteries were checked. While universal remotes I own will operate many playback functions of dvd and vcr, there doesn't seem to be any way to set any of its menu items, like timer recording for vcr or function choices for dvd playback. Any ideas before I replace the remote would be appreciated.

The only thing that comes to mind is somehow the remote became unprogrammed. This happens with some factory remotes, if you reset the code for the remote it may start working again.

There are other times (both of these Ive had experience with) when the remote will just stop working due to a defect.

Post back for any further help, thank you for stopping by Fixya!

I have a liftmaster formula 1 1280R opener that works fine from the wall mount but all of a sudden both remotes and the built-in remote in my car stopped working. It is not the batteries in the remotes. ...


The motor/control unit may have gotten reset. It needs to relearn the codes transmitted by the remotes.

MIne has a "learn" button on the control unit. Press and hold, then press the button on the remote. Lights will flash indicating it has received and stored the code. Release button.

Check to see if the remote works now. If so, all three should be working. If not, dig up your manuals.

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Display&contents=help_deadremote&uuid=A12963989782821
They also sell replacement remotes.
Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remote", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

Pansonic NV-HS960 will not accept signal from Remote control


Obvious things first check the battery, check nothing is blocking the signal area. If still no look try another remote, you might have to buy a cheap universal one. If that doesn't work then the remote sensor in the VCR has a fault in it.

Suddenly stopped working, green light on remote works, but no response from car. No locks, trunk, or start.


Could be many things, loose ground or power wire on the 561, there is an inline power fuse on the red wire leading to the control unit that may be blown. It may just need to have the remotes reprogrammed to the control unit, sometimes the control unit just stops recognizing the remotes. If you have recently had the cars battery replaced, or jump started the car, check the fuse at the control unit first.

LE26R74BDX TV Not responding to Remote


there is a easier way to check your remote.
Open your radio on AM frequencies, you don't need to be tuned just noise is perfect, then bring your remote near the antenna and press some button. You will ear the frequency in your radio. If it works this way but not on the TV make sure to press the TV button before using it (if the remote is universal).
