    At we supply users
    everything need to fix and test your remote control with links so you
    can fix your remote control no matter what remote control it is,
    including remotes for TV, VCR, Audio, DVD, HDTV, TV/VCR, TV/DVD, DVR,
    SAT and Cable remote that you need. We have direct links to universal code websites. We have direct links to
    replacement remote controls for most brands. 1st Test your remote control

    What you need:
    - Good working batteries installed

    - Digital camera or camera phone

    - Remote control

    Steps to test your remote control

    1.Place good batteries into remote control

    2.Turn your camera on

    3.Point the eye of the remote towards the lens of the camera (shown

    4.Press each button on the remote while viewing through the digital
    viewer on the camera

    Results: (Read all the way through)

    While looking at the camera screen you will see
    the remote (similar to picture below).

    If working then you will see a flickering light
    coming from remote (right image) when a button is pressed(not all buttons will work, see below).

    Buttons that will not
    work on any remote control:

    1. Record button (This button
      might work if you also press the play button at the same time)

    2. TV / DVD / VCR / Cable / AUX

    3. Program button

    If the remote control works you will see a flickering or
    steady light coming from the eye of the remote through the camera
    screen. Check every button on the remote to make sure
    they all work. If all buttons show a light than there is no need to
    repair or buy a new remote, this means that your TV/VCR/DVD/etc device
    needs to be fixed, or the remote control needs to be reprogrammed if it
    is a universal.

    If some of the buttons do not work, than your
    remote may also work for a DVD/VCR/Cable/Aux/etc, if so than you will
    have to click the DVD/VCR/Cable/AUX/etc button (This tells the remote
    that you are switching to this device and the remote will then allow a
    signal for the features of that device to transmit) and then some of the
    buttons that didn't work, may now work.

    If the remote partially works than you will see a light with only some of the
    buttons being pressed. Or you will not see a light until you press a
    button hard enough; this is do to the wearing of the remote keys. This
    problem is easily fixed either by sending the remote to us for repair
    (Click here for more Information), or Repair the remote yourself by
    ordering our Key-Pad-Repair Kit with simple, step-by-step instructions.

    Most common buttons to not work do to the
    wearing of them:

    1. Power

    2. Channel up/down

    3. Volume up/down

    4. Keypad numbers

    O.k, try opening the place the battery is inserted, take a screw driver to scratch the positive and negative contact side where the battery stays and insert the battery back. If it does not work, then you need a tech...

The remote isn't working at all with the home theater system. The tv is also a samsung i disconnected everything and reconnected but the problem still exist. any ideas of what i should do?

First of all, what is the remote control that you're using?

If you are using the remote control that came with the HTS unit and it's not working with the home theater, press the DVD RECEIVER button. That should work.

If not try this. Take out the batteries on the remote control and hold down the POWER button (without the batteries!!).

Hope this helps!
