I have a Samsung TXN2730F (it is a 27" grey flat glass CRT) that is about 4 years old. I recently tried to get a remote for it after not having one for about 2 years. I purchased two universal remotes (a phillips and one made by direct tv) and meticulously tried every programming code for each to no avail.


I then bucked up and tried to get the original manufacturer's remote for it and recieved a very similar one but not the EXACT same one, this one is bulkier and has more options. I didnt do anythign to program it because it said that it would automatically work upon arrival.


I just got back from trying another universal made by radioshack that has not worked. Luckily so far I have been able to return all but one (got it on amazon...) I guess I need to send the quasi-manufacturers one back


What is going on? Do I need to program teh quasi-manufactures remote or EXACT manufacturer's remote when I get them? Suggestions?

CHances are the IR receiver in the TV is bad and the set needs to go in for service.

All I can say about samsung is they can be a pain to program.


Well their DVD players are almost impossible to program into Theater Master remotes. I have really had no problems with getting tv codes to work relitively easy.


I think the direct TV remote has samsung codes that work......But yea if the IR receiver in the set is bad nothings gonna work...you already knew that.
