I HAVE THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM.

Confirmed with Samsung tech support. Problem is with remote. to fix, simple take the batteries out of the remote. Press and hold the UP Volume button for 2 Mintues (no cheating, it has to be at least 2 minutes), this Reset's the Remote Control. Put the batteries back in. Bob's your uncle. all fixed.

SOURCE: remote control

I had the same problem.  The problem is strange and seems to be with the receiver in the TV and not the remote control.  The reason I say this is that when this first happened my Samsung brand DVD could actually control the TV.  This then also failed, but still works fine with the DVD player.
Anyway there is an even more bizarre fix to all this......
- Remove the batteries from your TV remote. - Press and hold the red (ON/OFF) button for at least 1 min. - Replace the batteries and hey presto!!
I know seems far fetched but I found it on the Samsung website and it does work.

your turning section is not responding to any input, hence needs to be checked by a technician. every thing you have mentioned are controlled by one ic, with its respective voltages.

SOURCE: Changing Samsung Remote Codes (2 TV's Same Remote Frequency)

I have 2 LG tvs next to each other, and I used pieces of transparent sheet of plastic with polarizer on the tv IR receiver AND the remote. if you just put the sheets on the receiver, it won't work. The trick here is that when both sheets are in the same space (both vertical or both horizontal) the signal will get through, if they are not (i.e. one vertical and the other horizontal) light (or IR wave) won't pass, ergo, it won't get to one of the devices. you have to put one of the tv polarizer sheets rotated 90 degrees (or one vertical and one horizontal), that way, when you tilt your remote (pointing the tv, but rotated 90 degrees), it will control one tv, and in normal position (pointing the tv and rotated 0 degrees) it will control the other TV. of course, this works if you have nothing between the remote and the tv; if you have a repeater, I don't know what will happen, but I think it won't work (except of course if you do the same thing of putting the plastic sheet in the repeater). You can find plastic sheets from cell phone screens, old calculators, clocks, etc. If this thing doesn't work, it means that your polarizer is not good, and you need to find another one. Hope I had helped a tiny bit :)

My viewsonic keeps changing channels which makes it impossible to use. We've unplugged it and everything. once you power it on, thats all it does. it continueusly changes channels. please help


The first thing to try is to see if a button is stuck on the remote or on the TV.
Remove the batteries on the remote and see if that helps. If it fixes the problem, you'll need to replace the remote.
If that doesn't help, look close at the buttons on the TV to see if one is jammed on. If changing channels continually up, then check the channel up button on the TV, if down then check the down button.
Worst case, you might have to take the back off the TV and unplug the cable feeding the external button panel on the TV and only use the Remote (for safety, rememeber to unplug the TV while doing any work on it).

My samsung led remote control has just stopped working and i can't get it to work again. I've changed the batteries and i cannot find the reset button. I've unplugged the power from the wall and still no...


We need to find out first if the remote is putting out the IR signals or not, or the problem is in the TV IR receiver module.
Testing remote control:
The remote control puts out IR (InfraRed) signal that human eyes cannot see, to find out if the remote is sending out the signal or not you just point the remote at the digital camera's Lens (Digital Camera can detect IR), you should see flashing light on the camera's screen when any one of the remote button is pushed. If you do see the flashing on the camera, then the problem is in the TV IR receiver or the main logic board; more troubleshooting with scope will be needed to look at the signals.

My samsung le32r74bdx remote control wont change channels and cant turn volume on tv up or down


You can verify that the remote is working. Get a digital camera with a LCD display.
Aim the remote at the camera lens and press the volume and channel buttons. If you do not see
a flash through the camera the remote is bad or the batteries are dead.
If you know someone with any samsung hdtv remote, you can borrow it and try the volume/channel
to see if the tv remote receiver is good.

I have a Soniq LCD TV purchased December 2008. The remote will not work, turns on TV but will not change channels, I have to do so, manually. Solution please.


Check if all buttons are working fine. Testing remote is easy. Use your mobile camera. While watching the LED in the remote through your mobile camera, press buttons. When you press button the LED should light up. You can't see with naked eye but can see this LED flashing through camera.
If LED is flashing for all buttons, then something wrong with the TV. In your case, buttons in the TV are working fine so TV has no problem at all. Your remote should be the problem.

TV doesn't respond to the remote control...can't change channels


You have to find out if the remote is sending out the infrared signal to the TV remote receiver or not, you can test that by pointing the remote at the digital camera, you should see flashing light on the camera screen when any one of the remote button is pushed (digital camera can detect infrared light). If get the flashing light then the problem is in the TV remote sensor.

Remotes working sporatically


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...
