Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Samsung TV, model P2570HD, for which I lost the remote control. I ordered another remote control, BN59-00857A, which does not work. When I ordered this control from Amazon, the supplier wrote that this control did not need codes to work. However, it does not work and I have tried to find the neccesary codes every way I can think of. Apparently so have a lot of other people. Samsung does not have the codes (??) So, I need help in finding out which codes work to program the remote control to work with the TV. HELP

    Thank you for your help. I have tried to use the new remote control to set up the TV stations but I am getting no picture and no sound. We have digital cable. The channels do light up so you can see what channel it is on but no sound or picture. It has only programed channels all of which are cable channels with no sound or picture. Do you have anymore suggestions for this problem? Thank you for telling me the remote did not need to be programmed.

    I feel like an idiot! I still can only get the channel to show up but no picture or sound. I am going to keep trying.

This is not a programmable remote. Either it works or it doesn't.

Apparently you purchased the correct remote. The remote does not need to be programmed. It is the remote that was originally distributed with this TV

The BN59-00857A was sold with the following models:

LN22B360C5D LN32B460B2D P2570HD LN19B650T6D LN22B460B2D LN22B650T6D LN26B460B2D LN26B360C5D LN32B360C5D LN19B360C5D LN32B540P8D PN42B400P3D LN19B450C4H LN22B360C8D P2370HD PN50B400P3D SYNCM933HD LN22B350F2D P2770HD

P2570HD is listed.

The remote does not need programming. Remove batteries and ensure that the remote is in TV mode (button in the upper right-hand side corner.

If that still does not work, either the remote is defective or the TV IR receiver is defective.

Before contacting back the seller to return the remote I would double check compatibility calling your local Samsung technical support. The number is on TV owners manual (or see SAMSUNG's.) TVs sold in different parts of the globe may use different remote IR frequencies.

    Use MENU button. In Menu there is ANTENNA that you can choose to select between AIR and CABLE.

    Use again MENU, and go to CHANNELS to add new channels.


    You can reset channels to factory and do a new reset with the following:

    If you want to reset and re-program channels...
    1. Press the [MENU] button to display the menu. Press the arrow UP or DOWN button to select , then press the [ ] button.
    2. Press the [ ] button again to select .
    The channel auto program feature is only available in the TV mode.

    Please do not forget that the tuning instructions work if the aerial is connected directly to the TV. If you use a receiver box things are different.
    I am going offline now.

    All the best.

Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. One among it has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts.

I order my remotes from
They have a good selection. You may have to contact Samsung for the owners manual. I checked the Samsung website out and they did not show your model number. Check you number again, you may be able to download the manual from their site for nothing. I did find a 46ln750 and that may work for you..

I hope that this helps.

Remote tv control

The model number you gave isn't recognized by either Samsung at their download center and sells the remote, they also do not have a part number on the 'Original Codes' page that even resembles that part number:

Since codes are so model and brand specific, unless you find the user guide on line, your chances are slim. Study the remote to see if it may have a built-in scan feature that allows you to step through every available code to find one that works.

2. Press and hold down select and the red button together until the red light at the top of your Sky remote control flashes twice.

Then enter the remote control code using the number keypad. The red light will flash twice if a valid code has been entered.
