I have a Samsung smart tv. We use a harmony remote to control it. We are unable to shut it off, adjust volume, change stations


There is a code for every tv that you will have to load into the remote. Ask Radio Shack person how to get your code onto your remote.

Volume increases to 100 or drops all the way to 0 when pressing the volume button on either the remote or back of the tv. I can't control the volume I want.


Keyboard issues and answers:
A problem that is more common than most people think is anissue with buttons on the controlkeyboards of modern TV sets.
Recently for whatever reason I have seen more questionsabout this so I have composed this answer and solution for these kinds ofproblems.It can be any button on the set-channel up/down or volume updown-you name it.

The symptoms are the same: channel will scan up or down andwill not stop-remote control has no effect on this---It can be channel, volume,or even input or menu if the set has those up front or on the side of the set.

All these push controls have something in common-beneatheach is a tiny momentary push switch-when pushed with the plastic button itperforms a specific task (vol up or down etc.).

What happens is the afflicted switch beneath the plasticbutton is bad-when released it is supposed to stop its function but does not.

Keyboard or button controlled features have PRIORITY over the remote control, hence the remote will not stop this fromhappening.
Both the remote and thekeyboard go to the microprocessor in the set but keyboard is first in line.

How to resolve this issue?

Someone needs to get at the tiny pc board with the buttonsand locate the one associated with the issue (ie sound or channel etc) andunsolder that switch from the board-usually just two pins (may be more formounting only purposes) and then see if set does not have the issue with switchout of the circuit.

For the TECH minded with the board out test here theswitches with a ohm meter set to high resistance-any reading with button notpressed means a bad switch-seen ones that read 5,000 plus ohms-it may benecessary to unsolder more than one switch to locate the offender here but an open reading with switch not pressed is therule.

I have taken the time to compose this answer as some do notunderstand what is happening in these types of situations---No magic wand orsmoke and mirrors here-have to disable the offending switch to know.

The beauty (in my view) of this kind of problem is if found, you really do not have to replace anypart-just operate the set with the remote with one button that no longerfunctions on the set itself-who could ask for more?

Samsung UN46D6300 TV not in Logitec Harmony 700 remote database. Need IR code/s to enable controls (especially TV input source selection). Learning mode was only partially successful for power, volume...


When i went into the Harmony software, your TV did come up. If these codes aren't working try a different model Samsung (like UN46D6000). All new Samsungs use the same code set. If this still doesn't help, go to "Devices"->"Settings"->"Adjust Inputs"->"Method 3". Follow the directions from there. Something else that may help is Samsung calls it the "Source" button, Logitech calls it "Input x".

We have the stereo hooked up to the dynex 42'' tv, as we did our other tv, we can not mute the complete sound and also sometimes we cant turn the volume up and down whats going on?


Since you have it hooked up to the stereo system, you need to go to on screen audio set up and turn off the TV built-in speakers (you will be listening the TV sound through your stereo system speakers), then go to the audio output set up and set it to 'variable' so the audio output of the TV's RCA audio out put will vary with the volume control of the TV (not all TV will alow this function), you will need to set the stereo volume to certain level (around 9~10 O'clock setting) since the sound coming from the TV will be controlled by the TV remote volume control. You can otherwise set the TV output to be at 'fixed' level, which means the sound output of the TV will not be controlled by the TV remote volume control, you will use the stereo remote volume control to adjust the sound level instead. I hope this is clear to you.

Have to turn the volume to 80-100 to hear the tv in my bedroom


If it's just playing DVD's that the volume is low some DVD players have their own volume control.
You could look at the back of your tv and see if the dvd or psp is hooked up to a "line in" or a 'variable' input. The Line in is a constant audio source. The variable will be also affected by the volume on the TV.

Volume won't turn down


Try the setup program. When you get to the main setup screen, look for a reset all to standard setting. That may solve the problem. If it doesn't then the sound module may need to be replaced inside the TV.

Volume Control


check the up volume button on the set. it sounds like it is stuck in the on position. You can open the back and disconnect the wire harness to the control buttons. This will verify if the volume up button is the problem.
