How to Reset a Samsung TV Remote

Updated April 17, 2017

If your Samsung TV remote stops working and you've replaced the batteries, you might need to reset the remote to fix the problem. You can reset the remote through a process called "pairing," which syncs up the remote's output signal with the receiver on the television. Pairing your Samsung TV remote can be accomplished in only a few minutes.

Press "Reset" on your Samsung remote. Note that this button is located at the bottom of the remote and is very small. Use a thin pointed object to press the button.

Turn off your television manually by pressing the "Power" button at the bottom-centre section on your television.

Press "Pairing" on your Samsung remote. This button is right next to the "Reset" button and is very small as well. Use the same thin pointed object to press the button.

Turn your television back on manually by pressing the "Power" button at the bottom-centre section of your television. Note that you must do this within 30 seconds of pressing the "Pairing" button.

Listen for the audible "beep" from the remote. Repeat this process if the remote did not beep.

Tip

If you are not able to pair the Samsung remote with the television after multiple attempts, install new batteries into the remote.
