    the remote control is "Samsung BN59-00516A" I need to know how to open it without breaking the plastic catches, as it seems there are no screws to hold it

Start at the fat end of the remote by inserting a thin flat screw driver between the grey and black edges of plastic. As you move down you'll feel the driver enage into a gap. At this point lever up the black plastic. Continue around the fat end of the remote releasing it from the catches, work yourself around until you reach the top end prying apart the catches of the remote. Now you can remove the two sections apart. <br /><br />To remove the keypad you'll need to pry another catch that holds the keypad down at the top near the IR diodes. TAKECARE not to damage/break the catch, it was a very thin piece of plastic in my remote and broke off when I tried to replace the key pad. In my case I used some tape to hold down the keypad inside the remote housing. Clean the PCB where is makes contact with the silicon keys and replace. Now replace the two sections of the remote alighning the catches which now snap together.

HT-C555/XEU manual

Do you mean the Samsung HT-C555 digital home cinema system? Samsung has the manual for this on the product support page: . Scroll down (or click the Manual Download link) then expand the section with the See More link. The direct link to the more recent version of the manual is currently: . The XEU appears to be about the remote and different retail areas had slightly different remote model numbers. The manual for the HT-C555 covers several models and gives information on the remote control on page 13-14.

I hope this helps.

When I hit the info button, the program listing does not show. How do I set this up?

Info doesn't bring up the program listing. It just tells you about the current programme. You'd know this if you read the manual.

If you watch a list of the TV programmes, then you need to press the buttons listed on page 57 of the manual.

Samsung has the manual you want is the 1.75 MB PDF at the bottom of the list here: . If this second link doesn't work, follow the directions below to reach this page.

Samsung has the User's Guide for the oven on the Support tab, see . The support tab is on the right. The manual for the cooking hob can be accessed from the Need More Downloads link below the Download button.

I hope this helps.

I have a samsung LE26R51BDX/XEU last night we turned the TV on and the volume went up by itself to 100 (without the control). The TV volume will not go down using the buttons at the side or the remote...

Sounds like the control buttons [microswitches] of the volume, inside the front panel control, have been strucked by anyway. Just replace it. Two of them. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

You may have accidentally activated the reset on the unit. This is done when you hold down the FFW button on the front of the unit without any disc inside.

All you need to do is turn off the unit and turn it back on. If the word RESET still appears, get the remote control and press 1. It should work fine after that.

Samsung HT-A100 Home Cinema system plays cd only with tv on!

You need to put away the remote for your TV and use only the remote for your HT system. Your HT remote should work on your TV by default. Your Samsung HT remote should have a TV button and a DVD/Receiver button (or HT button). When using only the TV, press the TV button and then use it for just the TV and when using the HT system, press the DVD/Receiver button and then you can use the HT system.
If for some reason your TV is not set on the Samsung HT remote by default, your HT users manual should have a list of codes that you can use to program your HT remote. Hope that helps you. Gary

Locked control pad

Try a Logitech Harmony universal remote, they can be uploaded with the drivers from the internet and this might do the trick. Otherwise you can contact Samsung and ask for a replacement of the original remote.
