Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV
I have a 42" SP-R4232 Plasma. For some reason the TV stops reading the remote. When it works the blue light blinks, but when the TV stops reading the remotes for some reason the blue light stays solid. There is no other equipment in the room that could be causing interference. Tried several remotes and none of them work. Not sure what the issue is and I cant afford the service right now, honestly dont want to waste my money if there is a simple solution. Also I am using Comcast HDTV box with the tv. My new Samsung DLP 61 inch tv has a similar problem. The remote works, and then after it warms up for a while the tv won't respond to the remote.
Evidently 2 good remotes point at the problem being the remote sensor on the TV itself. I have about 4 remotes I can adjust volume w/ including the remote that came w/ my samsung. The TV exhibits the same behavior w/ all of them.
Per the samsung site, the "test" for this (remote vs sensor) is to us a digital camera, (including the kind that's on most cell phones) to "see" if the remote lights up. Just point it at the camera/phone, and press any button. You should see a bright flashing light on the camera/phone's LCD screen. If not, REJOICE! All you need to replace is the remote or batteries in it. If you do see the light, good luck if you're not in warranty. I've been unable to find any procedures for replacing this kind of item.

Try taking your battery cover off and roll the batteries with your finger while watching that blue light. if works there intermittently then take a small screwdriver and put some more stretch in the battery springs.. dont break it now. also a cotton swab with alcohol or wd-40 on the contacts help.
