Question about Samsung 52 in. LCD Flat-Panel HDTV

1 Answer

It's taking 3 to 5 minutes for my TV to turn on. When I press the on button on the remote. I hear this popping sound from the TV. It sounds like it is trying to pop on but doesn't. It takes about 25 pops for it to turn on. Do I have some circuit board going bad?

Probably bulging capacitors in the power supply area. Have it serviced ASAP before you end up with high dollar repair.

TV picture goes out after 10 minutes of viewing with popping sound


It can be a couple things. Something bad on the power board. Or the vertical output circuit. How long ago did you purchase the television. Your best course of action is to have it serviced.
If you need any information or other assistance let me know.
Thanks,
Lee

Looking for a jumbo remote that will operate a new 26 inch Vizio Montior. The old one don't work. Is there a new version?


A remote is not designed to control and Moitor. They only run by the video/sound output from the pc. So I am taking it for granted that you meant TV instead of Monitor.

A. Before buying a new remote try replacing the batteries first.

B. I found the Innovage Jumbo Remote Control manual and it has no code for the Vizio TV, you will need to utilize the remote's "Code Search" option.

C. Instructions

1. Turn on the Vizio TV.
2. Aim the Jumbo Universal Remote at the Vizio TV and hold down the "Code Search" button on the remove for roughly 3 to 5 seconds. The LED lights on the Jumbo Universal Remote will come on.
3. Press the "TV" button at the top of the Jumbo Universal Remote.
4. Start pressing the "ON/OFF" button repeatedly until the Vizio TV turns off. This will likely take several minutes due to the amount of available codes.
5. Press "Enter" on the remote immediately after the Vizio TV turns off to save the code.
6. Test the Jumbo Universal Remote by trying to control the Vizio TV with the remote. If the control doesn't work with the remote, repeat the entire process.

Good luck.

Need 3 digit code for vizio vsb200 audio bar for a clikr-5 UR5U-8780L-TWM remote


There is no listed 3 digit code. You will have to do a code search. Press and hold the Ok and Aux button for 3 seconds. You will have to press the CH+ or CH- (does not matter which) for upwards of 400 times but the code is in there somewhere between 290 and higher, I lost count. Here are two tips. Move the cable box out of site of the remote and expect the TV to turn off when it hits its code. This will make you think you have found the code as the sound will go off. Don't fall for it. Look at the light on the sound bar only. Once the TV turns off you will need to have it;s remote handy to turn it back on so you will hear the sound again.

Once you pass 290 or so go slow and don't miss the light going out on the sound bar or you will have to do it all over again.

Once you turn the sound bar off press the AUX button again to lock in the code.

It's a pain but the code for Vizio sound bars is in there, don't let them tell you it's not. Took me about 7 tries to find the sequence and make the mistakes but my Vizio bar is now Programmed to the Cliker-5 and works fine. Good Luck.

I Have a 5.3 IR Remote and a vizio VSB200 Sound Bar. The remote will not program to the Sound Bar. The Optical Audio is connected to the TV. What do I need to do.


lojr,

We have code to use with amplifiers, TVs, VCRs, and DVD players. I do not have a code that will work on this sound bar. What is the code you are trying to use? Did Vizio supply a code with your sound bar. They do have codes to use for their TVs to program DISH remotes. Please let me know if you have a code or you can contact Vizio to see if they have a code available.

I have provided the Power Scan instructions on programming the remote to a sound bar. Use the VCR button to attempt to program the sound bar.

If you have further questions, please post it here.

Won't turn on emediately


Something's out of whack, especially if it does it when manually turning it on. TV repair shop, or new TV. TV's are not usually repairable by anyone but specialists. They are dangerous to fool with otherwise.
