I'm glad I found this board!
I have a Samsung Plasma PN50A650. I recently moved and can not
find the remote. I saw a couple of remotes on Amazon that are
generic remotes that "claim" to work with my TV.
Will a generic remote work?
I don't watch much "TV", but would like to watch it occasionally, especially
with the Stanley Cup & NBA playoffs happening.
BTW... any info on the cheaper generic remotes sold at Best Buy? I
hate that store, but would force myself to shop there one time, just to
get my TV up & running again..
I'm using the 6 device and 8 device versions of this remote with Samsung TVs and they both work fine > http://www.bestbuy.com/site/4-device-universal-remote/1088116.p?id=1218219329422&skuId=1088116&st=rca remote&cp=1&lp=5.
I could not find that remote here locally, so I bought a One For All #oarusb04g.
Will the setup code TV 0812 that you gave me work for this control?
Is that a code number for any remote for my tv?
BTW - where did you find that code?
Each remote maker uses different codes. Coincidentally, UEI makes both one-for-all and that RCA I suggested, hence they have the same codes.
I found them from the links in my signature plus some detective work when opening the device upgrade file for your TV found in the JP1 file section, and the fact that most samsung TV codes haven't changed in 15 years.
Press Setup until 2 blinks
Press the desired device button
Enter the setup code.
This order is different to most UEI remotes, but for any device besides TV, this seems to be necessary. BTW, I did check with my OARUSB04G, and it accepts TV 0812.
Does anybody know where I might find the settings for my particular TV?
It seems a bit dark these days. I remember there was a published list of settings
that made the picture w-a-y better than the factory settings, but do not have the
link any longer.
