Solved: Remote stopped working (except for Power button) – Samsung Community

Thanks! This helped me. But I did it differently.

#1. Firt I disconnected the power cable to the TV and waited 15 seconds before I reconnected it.

#2. Start the TV. (I started the TV with the remote because the power button was the only working button on the remote)

#3. Hold down the “Back” and “Play/pause” buttons on the remote to start the pairing process. Keep holding the buttons down until you get a message on the TV that it is connecting/pairing with the remote.

Voila! Now it (might) work! =)

For me, the pairing process didn’t work before I disconnected the power cable. I tried several times before without any luck.

Also, the remote controls (red) light blinked constantly as soon as I pressed any button after reinstalling the batteries.

All this got fixed after doing these steps.

And I did not loose all my settings on the TV.

Although I don’t promise that it won’t happen for you…

Good luck and buy a book!

  1. I have a small background in magazine journalism but my new job requires no writing at all, except for emails. . . I would like to start doing some creative writing but I don’t know where to start, as in, what do I write about, and whether it’s actually worth bothering with or not. I’d probably be more inclined to do it if there was a competition or group I could join online or something like that. . . Does anyone do any writing or their own, if so, how did you get started? And what have you gotten out of it?.
