Bd-p1200 remote control problem

Hi, I am having problems with the remote for my Samsung BD-p1200. It seems the control buttons for turning on the player and most other buttons do no function. The only buttons that seem to function are the ones which turn on the TV and control the TV sound and TV inputs. I changed the batteries, but that did not solve the problem. I also took the batteries out and pushed one of the buttons for several seconds to drain the microprocessor. That did not work either. Can you help?

I can't control the HT-C6530 unit with the remote. The remote is controlling the TV instead of the samsung HTS and i can't seem to switch it back. Seems to be something to do with the BDReceiver/TV button...

press bd receiver / tv button to select the remote for any one. u can use the same remote for tv and blue ray receiver. when u want to control blue ray with the remote, select remote for the same by pressing bd receiver / tv button and wise versa.

Problem w/Samsung BD-P1200 Blue Ray Disk Player

Hello mljackson197,

This indicates a problem with the pickup head. First I would suggest cleaning the laser head with a disk made for that purpose. If this does not work, then I would suggest (if you have a background in electronics) taking the cover off and checking the bias voltages on the laser pick head (comparring them to the schematic values). What I believe is happening is just a dust problem, however if it is a circuitry problem, contact the manufacture or use the schematic/service manual to locat OEM parts.

I would, however try to clean the pickup head first.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Unable to program Universal Remote. provided codes do not work.

Problem solved. I decided to use the learning function of my remote to learn the wanted commands of the original remote. The remote I used was a Sony RM-VL610 which could learn the original remotes functions easy and quickly. This is a very good remote for only $30 purchased at Target. The Macro commands were also entered rather easily. I did not try this method originally,because I thought it would be too time consuming and difficult.
