Apr 6, 4, 77 31, As silly as this sounds, make sure nothing is blocking the IR port on the TV that receives the signal from your remote.If your Samsung remote is not working and you need help with it, this post will help you fix it. There are two types of remote control you can use on your Samsung TV or gadget.
The remote that comes with the Samsung device and the Universal remote control. The Follow come Samsung remote control comes programmed to the device. Your Samsung remote can stop working for several reasons. The first step is to confirm if the problem is from your TV or your Samsung remote.
Use the following methods below to confirm where the problem is coming from. Use Another Remote: One fast way to confirm where the fault is coming from is to use another remote on your gadget. It could be a universal remote control or a replacement remote. If the remote works on your TV, it confirms that the fault is from your Samsung remote. If not, it means the fault is from your TV sensor. Use A Digital Camera: You can use a digital camera to do this.
That includes the camera on your smartphone. To do this, switch on your Digital camera. Hold the camera about 6 to 10 inches away from your remote and aim the Camera to your remote. Press any button on your remote. If you see Infrared Eye flashes on the screen of your camera, it shows that your remote is working perfectly.
If not, that means the remote is faulty. Once you confirm the fault is from your remote control, you proceed with the steps below.
Battery Issue: The first thing to check when your Samsung remote stops working is the battery. It could be that the battery is not properly placed or the battery is bad. Either of them can make your Samsung remote to stop working. Distance To Device: Your Samsung remote is not programmed to work from a far distance.
So if you are sitting far away from your device, chances are that your remote will not work on your TV. Object: If there is an object between your remote and the device you want to program, chances are that your remote will not work. Major Defect: There could be other major defects in the remote that could make it not work properly. Some of the major defects include minor and major electronic glitch in the remote or a defect in the remote sensor on your TV.
Fix Battery: To handle the battery issue, you will need to either fix the batteries the right way or outrightly change the batteries.Often times when you begin having a problem with your ceiling fan remote, there is no problem with the remote itself at all. A lot of problems with your remote communicating with your ceiling fan are generally related to the receiver, which communicates with your remote control.
The receiver for your remote is located within the ceiling fan housing itself. They are more likely to go over the years; also times you can have a defective receiver right out of the box. My ceiling fan shuts off by itself, what should I do?
One thing a lot of ceiling fan troubleshooters and enthusiasts say, is the DIP switches can be at fault inside of receiver.
The dip switches in an apartment building for instance might all be wired the same way for all fans in the building, so someone next to you or below you might be turning your fan off when they turn theirs off. Because of frequency issues this can happen.
Also it can happen the same way if you have multiple ceiling fans inside of the home. To start troubleshooting the dip switches on the fan, you need to try changing the position of the dip switches. The dip switches need to match each other in order for them to be on the same frequency, and work properly. To troubleshoot a ceiling fan dipswitch problem first ensure that the dipswitches on both the fan and the remote line up. If you had to throw a switch or change something so they are in sync, try again.
Is it working now? If not, then try setting all the switches on the fan or remote to off. Then turn them all back on. Do this for the other device as well. One all the switches are up or down, now try setting the two devices in the same pattern, so they sync.
You can try the original pattern they came in when they arrived, or a new pattern you yourself create. If you are having problems with the fan turning on by itself, then you want to change the pattern so it's different. My ceiling fan lights, reverse button, or other buttons don't work on the remote, what should I do? If this is happening right out of the box, then it can either be a problem with the way the remote has been programmed to your fan, a bad remote, or a defective receiver.
Make sure to check the batteries on the remote first. If you just bought the fan, try to reprogram the remote if it's possible using the instructions that came with it. If this doesn't work, take the fan and all accessories back to where you purchased it.
If you've had the fan a long time and it's just starting to happen now, check the batteries on the remote. Then try to reprogram the remote with the fan if possiblethen try replacing the remote. If still no luck, replace the receiver. Ceiling fan receiver wiring problems Wiring problems are common with receivers.
You can choose to take your receiver apart, if you feel confident in troubleshooting it. If you decide to go that route, then we recommend using this wiring guide which describes all the different wiring colors related to ceiling fan installation. The wiring guide can be extremely useful if you have a bunch of wires, and you don't know which wire does what.

Is there maybe something wrong with the TV where the cables go in on the back of the TV? I have 2 TVs- 1- bedroom and 1 front room. Both working fine last night. Tried to retune TV — no channels found.
On the bedroom TV cant even find retune on menu. Nothing im doing is working. I live in a block and no one else has complained of this issue? We did unplug the cable from the cable box and the antenna plug from the wall behind TV for at least 3 mins. After that we plugged back all the cable and tried after 2 mins…it is still the same.
Our TV signal has been intermittent in the last week, high pressure gets the blame, but at 8pm last night it went off with no signal, tried to reset this and no channels! We get the Stockland transmitter in Swest.Led tv remote sensor not working (solved)
There is a booster in the loft, could this have suddenly gone? Now those are not even an option. What can I do? I know the TV is old, and the cable-man told me if every time I have to rest the input, that means that my TV is on the brink. Is this true? And did my TV finally stop working or is there another fix?
Any suggestions welcome. This should make it so when you turn the TV to ON, the image will appear instead of having to change the inputs with the remote control everytime.
I have an Insignia TV and a Samsung cablevision box.Westinghouse Electronics is proud to offer top-tier support for all of our products.

I think its the IR sensor but since my dad lost the receipt, its gonna be expensive to bring this to a technician. So before I go there, i would like to ask if there are any other options for us. Is there an existing technology, something we can just plug in there like a usb ir emitter or somethingthat would allow us to control the tv again?
