I believe that the power/channel/volume control panel on my TV has gone bad. If I press VERY hard on the buttons, they'll work. The TV powers on and off by itself and the channels change by themselves. Replacement seems pretty straightforward, but I can't figure out what the part number is for the button cluster. Can anyone help determine the part number and a source for the part? The numbers on the button cluster are: 1515631E, but I haven't had any luck locating anything close on the web. Any help would be greatly appreciated. -Matt
I had the exact same problem with the channel/volume autoshifting. I found a electronic firm that would rebuilt the board for $185.00 plus shipping-----screw that. I cut the plastic hold down nubs on the channel/volume buttons itself and disassembled the contact. Inside the button was a copper metal disc showing arc tracks and "carbon scoring" on the underside. I just removed the button guts and now use the remote for channel and volume adjustments. So far the power button still works for me. I may try buffing and cleaning the disc and contacts later, but what the hey, I'd rather surf with the remote from the couch.

ie menu = Menu
Channel up/down = take you up and down
volume = goes left and right.
follow these steps
channel down button to CHANNEL
press the volume button along
channel down button to AUTO STORE
press the volume button to Start the scan.
right now you have your telly tuned in. What you could do it get an old sky remote off a friend/ neighbour. or buy from argos etc ( a lot cheaper then getting a replacement samsung one)
press the following buttons on the sky remote to program it to work with your samsung tv.
RED + SELECT
try the volume if this works press SELECT to save this code if it doesnt press Tv then try the volume again. repeat this step until the volume works your telly. once it doest dont forget to press the SELECT button to save.
Now you will be able to change your volume use the number keys. if you also press the HELP button on the sky remote this will also change your AV / SOURCE I hope this post helps you out. When it does please leave a thumbs up for me Please
press the preset button on the front panel once then (TV should be on) the on the screen there should be words the likes of (Auto VHF 1 60.00mhz) now the Auto stands for auto tuning VHF stands for its frequency where its going to search the 1 stands for the channel where its going to start with 60.00mghz stands for the lowest signal to which its going to start now that you have understood all that just press the volume up button then it will automaticly locate all your working channels leave till it stops for when does it will start from channel 1 to which I believe that you be able to see the channel working so press the up button on the channel button to check the rest of your channels hope this will solve your problem!
a 42hp66 is a plasma set,, the y-sus or the z-sus circuit board has probably gone bad.. as these are expensive parts you might want to have a technician determine which one of the two is bad before ordering both of them
Most univ. remotes have a search mode if code entry won't work-
Do you have the comcast instructions ? Something like.....
1) Tv power on
2) Push set-up or program on remote
3)Touch tv button on remote
4) Point remote at TV and push power off. Repeat until TV turns off.............then
5)Push enter to save....
You have to push and hold down TV and Mute button (for 2 seconds at the same time), then release them at the same time, then push channel up until the TV turns off. Be patient and continue channel up until the TV turns off. When it turns off, then push TV again to lock the code.
You were doing fine, but missed to push channel up to fine the code.
