Question about Samsung TV Remote Control

Remotes working sporatically

I have a DLP 56" samung TV and a motorola cable unit and a panasonic tuner/receiver. So I am using three remotes one for the tv one for the cable and one for the tuner. None of the remotes are working properly. The tv remote delays in turning the tv on and off, the cable remote does not change channels properly and the tuner some times will increase and decrease the sound even after you release the button. I have changed all the batteries but all three remotes do not function properly. What is up with that??

Your description suggests bad/dirty contacts inside the remotes and jammed volume buttons on one of them. Cleaning the rubber pads and the circuit boards on all of the remotes might solve the problem.
Use some ethyl or isopropyl alcohol and cottonwool to clean them.

By the way, here's a nice way to test a remote using your mobile phone's camera:

Turn the camera on, point the remote towards the camera lens so you can see it on the mobile's display.

Look at the display on your mobile phone and press buttons on your remote - you should see bluish/greenish flashes from your remote's emmiter each time you press a button on the remote (the camera on your mobile shows infrared light from the remote as visible light on the display - if it doesn't do so in the normal mode, try the night mode for the camera instead).

If you press a button and there are no flashes, that button probably has a bad/dirty contact.

if the remote is making flashes even when the buttons are released, this means that a button is jammed (you need to clean the rubber pads and the housing, especially the holes where the buttons come through as there's probably some dirt that keeps the button pressed in, which causes the volume to go up/down all by itself).

hope this helps...

Can't get it out of SAP mode. tried two different remotes. TV doesn't respond.


1. If you're watching TV via a Cable or Satellite box , then the SAP (Secondary Audio Programming) is activated in the box, not the TV. Check with your TV service provider how to activate/deactivate SAP in their box.

2. Only if you're using the TV's own built-in tuner to watch TV (you're changing channels by using the Panasonic remote for CH up/down), then press the SAP button on the Panasonic TV remote to cycle through the SAP options.

Remote will not turn the tv on and off


is this the original remote for this tv? if not then this is more than likely your problem. some remotes, however the same brand remotes, do not work with different model tv's. try using an universal remote or finding the original remote on ebay or possibly the net.

I have A 56 Inch rear projection Vivitek Tv But it doesnt have a remote is there any universal remote that might work for it


If you can come up with the model number, you should be able to find a remote here:
Remotes
Before buying ANY 'universal' remote, find the manufacturer's website and check first; there is no such thing as a 'universal' remote - they are at best 'multi-brand.' Some folks have bought several before realizing this and I'm telling at no charge!

I have new Polaroid TV/DVD combo & need code for my dish remote


Dish remotes generally will not program to combo units. There are a few exceptions but if you have already performed a power scan and have not had sucess you have one of the units that will not work. Dish is introducing a new receiver called a 222k which has a learning remote to prevent these types of issues. The 222k is a HD dussl tuner NON dvr receiver.It also has an expansion port that will allow a external hard drive to be connected to it which will allow the receiver to behave as a DVR unit but with added benefits an internal DVR model lacks.
Hope this answered your question and thanks for using FIx Ya. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

DTV remote code


KZXten,

Don't know if this will help but I have Comcast as my cable TV provider and am using a Motorola DCT-6200 STB and the remote Comcast provides with the STB. To get my Panasonic TV/VCR combo (PVQ-2510A) to work with the Comcast remote I had to do the following:

1) Do the remote code search in AUX mode (or VCR or DVD mode if your remote has that button instead) using the instructions for searching ing remote codes. I had to toggle back and forth between AUX and POWER on the remote until the TV turned off. I saved that code on the remote, but it only controlled the power on the TV, not the volume control.

2) Next I did the remote code search using the TV button on the remote and toggled between the TV button and the volume control until the volume +/- bar appeared on the screen. I saved that code too.

I use the AUX button to turn the TV on and off. Once the TV is on the volume control on the remote operates the TV volume normally. I still need to toggle between CABLE and AUX depending on which device I'm controlling, the cable Set Top Box (STB) or the TV. You may have to experiment some to get it to work correctly.

Here's a link to the remotes Comcast is providing in my area.

Remotes do not work with TV


Since you can change the channels with the cable remote, I will assume that you are changing the channels on the cable box. You can find out if the Panasonic remote is broken by taking a camera with an LCD viewfinder (such as a camera phone) in a dark room, point the remote at the camera and in the viewfinder you will see a light coming from the remote if it is working. If you see a light, chances are the remote is good. You are probably correct that the remote receiving unit inside the set is the issue. To check it, if you have some technical ability.: There are three pins on the RRU. 1 is ground, 1 has 5 volt standby voltage and one has about 5 volts on it until a button is pushed on the remote, then it will drop to about 2 volts. If the last will not occur then it is the RRC. I cannot access a schematic at this time to give you reference numbers or the correct pin configuration, but, I can another time. Leadtech
