Your Guide to Samsung Remote Controls for Television and More
Samsung manufactures consumer electronics, televisions, and other home entertainment equipment; it also makes the remotes to control them. This brand makes remotes designed for specific purposes, such as particular TV sets and audio receivers, as well as models designed to work with a broad range of hardware, including from other brands. You can find many new and pre-owned Samsung remote control models at affordable prices on eBay.Which buttons does a Samsung remote control offer?
The exact buttons and layout will vary from one Samsung remote control to the next. A basic remote from Samsung may just have the usual TV and Blu-ray/DVD options while a Samsung smart remote may have dedicated buttons for Netflix, Hulu, and other internet streaming services. Buttons that you can expect to find on most Samsung remotes include:
- On/off and menu
- Volume up and down
- Programmable buttons
- Channel select, up, and down
- Play, pause, and other media controls
Note that many Samsung remotes are designed to pair automatically with a particular device. A remote included with a TV, for instance, will often pair automatically. If you purchased an aftermarket device or want a remote to pair with multiple devices, you can follow the instructions below, which is the general method that Samsung uses for its remote controls.
- Step 1: Reset the remote by pressing the Reset button.
- Step 2: Turn off the television or other device to be paired.
- Step 3: Press the pairing button or the pairing button combination.
- Step 4: Hold this button or buttons.
- Step 5: Listen for the remote to beep or turn on to indicate success.
Many remotes by Samsung have a dedicated pairing and reset button. Placement may vary. If your particular remote lacks these buttons, then the feature can often be accessed through other means, such as pressing Return plus Play/Pause for pairing or removing the batteries to reset. This can vary from one product to the next, so be sure to check your Samsung remote control manual.How do you program a Samsung remote control?
