Samsung LN46C530 TV. Have had the TV around 1.5 months. It appears that the remote sensor on the television has stopped working. Both remotes work but the TV doesn't read them. Is there a quick fix for this?

G'Day
I have a similar Samsung set... and found that the remote sensor is rather low gain. I noticed the same thing when I first got the set. The remote did not seem to work. Pointing it directly at the right side corner at the power light of the set seemed to allow it to work. 10 degrees away from that either side and it does not work. I also had 2 remotes that behaved in a similar manner(got an additional free 22" set with my purchase). I also suggest changing the batteries out as the ones supplied with the set are generally low brand,and may not last that long.
Other than that, you may need to contact Samsung service to have the set replaced/repaired. Your best point of contact here is the retailer that sold you the set. If they cannot arrange for the repairs for you, let me know where in the world you are, and i will get a contact number for you.

Quick fix?

Afraid not the issue here if the remote sensor in the tv has died that part/board will need to be replaced. Its not something where a reset will just work.

I mean i hate to Say the word TRY, but unplug it and plug it back in but i am sure the board will need to be replaced at this point if both remotes did not work with the tv/

please update me with any new information you find.

Please be considerate and update this case with your ratings and feedback today, thanks

Samsung LN46C530 wont turn on.


Hey Mark,

Samsung's are notorious for bad caps, have you ever opened up the set? There could be other problems but I would start with power supply capacitors. The tops should be flat, look for any that have bulging tops !!!

My remote control stops working every few months or so, then starts working again. My warranty goes out this month. Just have a service call and the tech left me another remote, but I'm afraid this will...


The remote interface of the TV died on mine, it was intermittent then it stopped completely. Remote control is fine, it's the remote sensor in the TV itself.

To program this Samsung remote to work with a TV, press the TV POWER button on the remote while entering a manufacturer specific code into the remote at the same time.
1. Switch the TV on. 2. Point the remote towards the TV. 3. Press and hold the TV Power button and enter the two-digit code for that brand of TV. If the code is compatible, the TV will switch off. 4. There may be more than one code for that manufacturer, so try them all until one works.
For Samsung TVs, one of the following codes should work: +01 +02 +03 +04 +05 +06 +07 +08 +09

The first possibility is that the new remote control is a dud out of the box. It can happen. Another possibility is that the remote sensor in the TV has failed. Then the remote is transmitting, but it's not being picked up by the TV. (The lights are on but there's nobody home.) If you can, return the new remote to the store and exchange it. Then, if the set still doesn't respond, you'll need to replace the remote sensor.

Samsung remote control - UE40B8000XWXXU


This is odd.. I have a UN model, the 6000 actually and all remotes have stopped having any effect on the Television, even the units original remote. I can access every other device except the TV, it's as if the RF sensor on the TV has failed to function anymore. Let me know if you found a solution to this problem!

Remote No Longer Works


It appears the remote sensor in the Television itself has stopped working. If the TV is still under warranty I would try to contact the manufacturer to see what they can do for you. Can you still change channels manually? If so, this is most likely the case.

Remote Sensor


I heard that LG TVs have a problem with the TV not responding to the remote control (there is nothing wrong with the remote control). Hopefully your TV is still under the 2 year warranty. Go to LGService.com and report the problem. They told me that it's a common problem. They need to order the part and let me know when it comes in. (my TV is a LG 50PC1DRA)

The Akai TV might have LG guts inside.

TV doesn't recognize any remote


The proble is the IR sensor 932220681667 or the small signal board. I would replace the IR sensor first. Also check the firmware and make sure it is BX23U-1.5.0.0_03531 and if it is not go to www.usasupport.com and down load the firware on a USB stick. If the set still has the problem when both are done replace the small signal board.
