It seems this is common problem, my unit no longer response to the remote. Reported to Samsung, guess what they did not even asked me how I test the remote and prepare to ship me a new replacement unit AND wait to bin the unit!!!

Doesn't seem to make sense to e - as the remote works intermittently - so sometimes some buttons on the remote work other times all the buttons on the remote work - and these buttons include just scrolling up through channels and scrolling down through channels - up works all the time down works some of the time.. Other buttons are doing the same thing...

Yeah you are right is it the remote itself or the unit?

Two buttons do not work can it be repaired

Fix a TV, DVD player, etc remote control with buttons that won't work or don't work well. This is usually caused by dirty or oxidized contacts. Sometimes they will work a little bit if you press the buttons hard, or hold them for a few seconds. I show you how to clean the contacts and get your remote control working again. I didn't mention it in the video, but you want to make sure the batteries in the remote are good.

The part that receives the signal from the remote control is the receiver which is located in the motor housing.

Remote control

Remotes fail for about 4 different reasons and most can usually be fixed:

1. batteries bad or cause rust etc on contacts, or contacts do not hold batteries tight.

2. Liquid sometimes gets spilled on front where the buttons are--it is a one piece mat and if liquid gets under the buttons do not work or some do not work.

3. Remote gets dropped--usually this breaks a connection or part loose from the circuit board inside.

4. Remote not programmed for unit being used on.

different approach for each---which describes your problem?

The remote can be tested by any shop to see if sending a signal or not.

Dog ate remote where can i find one?

If you want to get its original model remote control; you have to contact the nearest RCA authorised service center at your town. You can't buy its orignal from nowhere else. A universal RCA remote control will work with it, but sometimes some buttons of it may not synchronised. So try to get its original model. Moreover, if by anyway this set happened to be in FPA lock, you cannot open the lock without the orignal remote control. A universal remote control, whatever it may be, won't work then. OK.

Volume controls dont work when using remote

I would start by trying other codes on the universal remote. Sometimes codes will only work part of the remote such as the numbers or channels but not volume. Your motorola cable remote sounds like it may only need a good cleaning. sometimes when you take remotes apart it will look like somthing got spilt in it. I would start there first.
