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?

My remote works . It just won't do anything in the tv . So how can I reset the whole thing ?


Possible that there is a change of the set codes or the frequency. If your remote is the OE for the TV then you can remove the battery for about 15 minutes and reset.
Please try this link to remove and check your remote for any battery leaks into the board or any component that has come off or is dry soldered.
