Test if your remote works by viewing it through a digital camera. (A phone camera works well.) View the front of the remote on the camera's digital display while holding down any of the buttons on the remote. If your remote is working you will see an RF light coming from the front of your remote. (You can only see this through the digital camera. The human eye cannot see the RF signal on its own.) If you don't see the RF try changing the batteries with known good batteries and try again. If you see the RF but your remote doesn't seem too work it needs to be reprogrammed.
Here are the steps for programming the remote to work with my Samsung TV and other brands.
1.) Turn the TV on.
2.) On the remote control hold down TV Power+01 at the same time. If the TV turns off the controller is programmed. If not, try TV Power+02, +03, +04, +05, +06, +07, +08, +09. Different TV BRAND??? ...TRY the codes listed for other TV brands located on the last page of this link. http://remotes.com/remotes/documents/Samsung/AK59-00104K.pdf
Try removing the batteries and updating the program from the Harmony software. Then replace with new fresh batteries. This may not fix your problem but it often does the trick. Sometimes these remotes get "confused".
Please take these actions before we try yet another universal programmable remote 1. Clean the IR screen on your tv set. It will often appear clear in view with a reflective window which often has a black, blue, or red tint to it 2. Clean the same window on the programmable remote 3. From tons of experience, I've noticed that Sony tends to provide the most compatible remote for replacements 4. Please confirm with me which codes your attempting to use when programming, and type /model number of the universal remote 5. Keep in mind that the remote that does not work as a replacment may very well be exchanged 6. Only use approved batteries for your remote and keep in mind that rechargeable batteries account for 50 percent of electronic errors 7. If your old remote simply stopped working for no reason at all, then we may have a communication problem with the tv combo set itself. 8. Ensure that the tv set is ready and able to receive a signal by setting it to the factory defaults within the settings menu 9. If we know why your older remote simply stopped transmitting the signal, we will acheive a must faster solution 10. Please attempt a fresh set of batteries in the older remote to determine the root cause behind the transmission problem 10. Check your power cord for crimping, dents, or pinched underneath unit. Each of these activities will cause power to stop transmitting to your unit 11. the digital display is not popular for having problems. 12. Ensure that you press the power on button on the digital display firmly at an attempt to power the unit on. 13. If you still have not recieved power, we will continue to troubleshoot the internal portions
Just open the remote control without damaging its case. In some remote controls, there may ba onw or two fixing scrrews inside the battery compartment. Look ofr it if it is there, if not you can open it with any sharp instrument like a knife or so, by put it in betweedn the **** between the to case parts at its side. Hold it upside down and open. There will be a strip wire that connects the LCD display and the main board of the remote control. In some remote controls this strip wire will be a replaceable one. In some others it will be pressed either side to board and display. If the second said type is yours, it can't be repaired. If it of the first said type, the wire can be replacable, and can be bought from electronic spare part shops. Its conductors are of carbob track type, not made up of metal wire. During the fall, there is a chance to make these conductors to break. There is only back light LED is working now. Sometimes the remote may be also working, but you can't see its doings on diplay. Check it. As you said that the battery inside it is deformed durring the fall, as from that I understands that the hit got by the remote control during the fall was strong. Anyway open it and check these. OK
The remote control is an acess to the TV device for example only from a distance. A remote controll for functionality would require to insert batteries a power source making possible communiction with devices requiring reception transmittion of signals. The remote is handheld pointed to the direction of TV requiring signal before button pressed woudl achieve response. a common button to start the remote control experience is pressing on the power button, that displays a signal on the TV. The TV should momentarily produce a sound and lighting effect,, and displaying on the dark screen a light blue screen. The initial signal response from remote control to TV indicates devices are functioning as required. Additional buttons on the remote controll could perform functions of several available.
The remote control has master button, menu on which every additional function is deriveable. Once the menu button is pressed with remote pointed in the direction of TV, should dicplay a list of options on the blue screen already established by power button. Every additional remote control device functionality is achievable by only after the first two buttons have been powered and pressed to display option results on a screen of TV. The remote controll buttons remaining perform complementary functionalities. For example, the arrow keys on remote control make movement of the options displayed on the screen, where a comfrimation button or identified as select allows to confirm remote functions displayed on the screen. A remote control could have several functionalities only accessible once made to display in screen. The three most common buttons on a remote control are First power button that powers on the TV, menu button that displays a list of functionalities on the powered on bl;ank blue screen, and using the arrow buttons on the remote would moves an indicator arround the screen area options. The selection button makes confrimation of the option.
The flashing blue light shows that the TV is receiving I.R. from the remote but doesn't mean that the signal being received is recognized by the Samsung. If you have a "universal" remote then your TV code may need to be re-entered/reprogrammed...changing batteries in a "universal" will usually require it to be reprogrammed.
Also...because of the remotes construction (rubber membranes with carbon dots that short across PC traces) I've seen certain buttons stop working altogether.
hi had the same problem with alba 42" (l42m1) spoke to customer services at argos who suggested holding down menu button for 10 seconds then pressing menu again, which aparantly resets remote with tv. Has worked for me, hope it works for you.
Hold the set up button until the red light stays on on the remote. Press power until the TV responds. My sleep timer displayed after 23 presses (hotel room Magnavox TV). Stop pressing remote. The red light will then flash a few times once you stop. Problem fixed.
