Dude... Just turn off the breaker the tv is on... LolWe bought a 75” Samsung Q80R for our living room along with two smaller Q60R’s for the bedrooms. The Samsung Smart Remote for the living room failed after about 10 minutes of use and I have had to use cable box remote and Samsung app in interim. I changed batteries and it turns the TV on and off but that is it. It seems to be a pairing issue but whenever I try to re-pair TV says “Not Available”. Seems like this is a common problem. I have tried every fix and nothing works. Called Samsung support and they are sending me a new remote but I suspect it is a pairing issue and not the remote itself.
The only thing I cannot do is unplug the TV itself as some suggest to cause a reboot as it is wall mounted and I cannot access plug on the wall. I would need another person to help me take the whole set off the bracket. I do have access to the circuit breaker and have tried turning that on and off to no avail. Should cutting power that way cause a reboot of the TV, which I think is what I want. I had turned TV power off first though. Should I leave TV on and then try turning off circuit breaker for a minute.
Alternatively, what is a good universe remote I can buy that will allow me to operate smart TV functions. Unfortunately while my Spectrum Cable box remote will turn TV on and off, switch between inputs and control volume on TV,, the arrow and enter keys don’t work so I cannot use that to navigate the Samsung menu. If I could get it to do that I would not care that Samsung remote doesn’t work.
