Remote won't work

I have the user manual and all it says is to change batteries. There are no codes. How do I get my TV remote control to work?

    yes it is a multi-device remote control. I only use it for my TV though. What would I look for under samsung's site for the code?

I had the same problem with my AKAI factory remote controller. The controller would light up when buttons were pushed, but had no effect on the TV itself. I fixed it by re-connecting the infrared connector to the back of the tv (small wire that originates from the TV itself, and then plugs back into the TV above the component inputs). Now it works great again.

Is it a multi-device remote at all?
This set is probably a rebranded Samsung so you might try their codes or check Samsung's website for a code listing for that model.

    Every now and then, I break my pick.



    Samsung will NOT recognize the Akai model number and and additionally has no link leading to a code list for anything.



    Akai has NO customer support for any products, regardless of origins.

    For a Japanese manufacturer, they are the thinnest of any I've seen.



    The original remote for your set is defunct; no longer available.



    For nearly $60(!), you can get a claimed substitute here:

    One thing I'm not clear on; is this the original remote for that set or one you purchased to replace the original?

Codes for sceptre tv remote control


The remote for this TV works on Sony Universal remote codes.
See this user manual.
http://www.sceptre.com/pub/Manuals/LEDTV/E325BV-HDH-0229.pdf

So if you want to use the remote for other devices then best to visit this Sony website and find the codes for the devices you need. Select the Brand from the list and the code pops out on the side. It is not clear what you want to use the remote for.

My remote control for my lg flat screen tv not working i changed the batteries and the light won't go on


Take the remote to any working radio, change radio band to SW, press various buttons of the remote and if you can listen to some clicking noise on the radio, the remote is ok. The problem might then be on the sensor and might need attention by a qualified service technician. You can also try switching off the TV, removing the plug and retry after 48 hours.
