Question about Samsung TV Remote Control
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...
