Why does my Samsung not turn off my cable box?

It sounds like the box and TV are out of sync. If the DVR is shut off, turn off the TV manually (NOT with the remote.) The next time you hit the power on the remote, both units should power up together. Make sure the remote is pointed at both device at the same time and slowly sweep the remote to hit both of them while holding the power button. I have always used the cable/DVR remote to control my devices and left the TV remote in a basket for setup stuff only on the TV.

Sky remote code for model UE40J5100AK

Programming the remote control
To control your TV firstly switch on the TV set, point the Sky remote at the TV, press the "TV" button on the Sky remote, then press and hold the "Select" and "Red" buttons together until the red light at the top of the Sky remote control flashes twice. Press "TV" again then enter the code for the TV listings below (Use the 4 digit codes from the left hand column), the red light will flash twice if a valid code has been entered. Press TV then the standby button on the Sky remote control, this should switch the TV set off, if so then press the "Select" button to store the settings. You should now be able to switch the TV back on and use the volume control button from your Sky remote.
If the TV did not switch off then it may require a different code, you can either start again using one of the alternative Direct codes below or continue with this process by continuously pressing "TV" then "Standby" then "TV" then "Standby" etc until the TV set switches off. This will provide a manual scan for variations within that product code.
If you are still unable to control your TV from the remote control see: Programming The Sky Remote or go to Sky's official website where you can see if a particular remote control version number will operate your make of TV, this can be found at:Skyplease remember to use your back button and come back to us.

How do I get my att&t u-verse remote control to recognize my 51 inch samsung TV?

The remote can't recognize the tv, it doesn't have that capability. If you want to use it to command that tv you must program it accordingly. Basically you must introduce the code that corresponds to the set of commands that your tv uses - if they are present in the remote.
This is the programming procedure:
1 - hold down the TV button on the Uverse remote. As you are holding the TV button, press and release the OK button. You know you have done this right when all the mode keys flash twice.
2 - Find the 4 digit code for your device in the User guide that was given you when the Uverse was set up, or online at

3 - At this point, the TV mode button should flash three times. Try to turn the TV off by pushing the power button. If it does not turn off, try a different code. If it turns off then turn it on with the remote and test the other buttons. If they don't work then try a new code.There are a lot of codes for Samsung in there, try them all until you find the one that has the best compatibility - most buttons that can be used.
4 - If none of the codes for your device work, try manually searching for a code. Go back and repeat steps 1 and 2. Then enter 922. Hold play as the remote cycles through various codes. When your TV turns off, push enter to memorize it. This generic code will provide just a basic control, if you really need full control then you will need another remote.

Try each of the above codes in turn until you find the one which works best, i.e. controls most functions. This may be limited to contolling the power, volume and channel functions. I have also pasted the programming instructions for your remote below, in case you need them.

  5. Try to control the TV's volume and power.
  6. If the remote did not control the TV, simply repeat steps 1 to 5 with another code from the list.

Your remote should now be programmed to work with your TV.

The cable guy programmed the cable remote to turn on/off the TV. We used it to turn the TV to stand-by. Then pushed the power button on the TV to turn the power off. Haven't been able to turn the TV on...

First use the original remote control that came with your tv, or just manually turn it on at the tv itself to bes sure it is working. If it works you should call the tech support for the cable company to program their remote control to a different code - or put it back to to factory state and just use two remotes.
