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

Open Question

Samsung TXR3079WHKXXAA I purchased this TV as an open box without the original remote. I bought a universal RCA remote that work for a time and then stopped. I purchase another RCA remote but it will not work on the TV regardless of entering the codes or searching automatically to find the code. Any ideas why the remotes won't work?

I was having the same issue with a Samsung 4053 40"

Comcrap had no clue.

Their phone rep suggested I come in and trade out the remote. That seemed unlikely if others are having the same experience. It is also unlikely a phone rep would have any answer other than what on the web page.

I used 5 digit code "10060" and it worked got the double flag from the remote like Comcast's documentation says. It turns TV on and off and works volume. So far so good.

The key to figuring it out was getting the double flash on the remote 4 digits didn't 5 did.

The moral of our story? Comcast has no clue what they push out the door. I guess that isn't a surprise to anyone.

Universal remote for RCA tv channel 1

Something missing here. There is no channel 1 on a TV set. None of the universal remote instructions I have or have seen specify that as a first step. From your post, I believe you want to use some kind of universal remote to control an RCA flat panel TV, Can you tell me the brand of universal remote you are trying to use? The answer to the last line of your post is you don't need the original remote to "reprogram". That's what universal remotes do

First of all, make sure you have good batteries in the original remote(I have seen brand new batteries be bad) and make sure that the connections are clean. Then make sure that the remote is in TV mode and see if it will work your TV. If there are no codes for your TV that came with the RCA remote, you will need one that does, or you will need to replace the original remote. I have seen a lot of times where universal remotes will not work combo units at all, no matter if there are codes listed or not.

No sound

Hi, It seems that the SAP, no audio, distorted audio is a common problem for some RCA units even with the use of the original remote and in your case made more difficult with a replacement remote. Two things you can try: 1. Some say that unplugging the TV set for a long time, a couple of hours at least will do a hard/system reset on the microcontroller inside the TV hopefully resetting set-up the audio (including SAP) to default; 2. contact Customer Support at Thomson and explain your problem; 3. Try going a google on "RCA SAP manual reset"; or 4. Buy an original remote and not another replacement. Hope this work out for you and give you some ideas. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
