Noticed an update applied this morning. Tried Netflix and YouTube with the remote tonight and it was working properly for the first time - anyone else?
NOT fixed at all
noticed the update as well. Did not fix the remote issue at all. The remote only works when you stand directly in front of the TV or you have the "Smart" TV hooked up via ethernet cable.
You would think that Samsung would be eager to fix that problem, since a lot of customers have the same problem. But NOOOOOO.
What a bust. I will not buy another Samsung product.....EVER. I am very disappointed in this TV. Picture quality is great, but it stops right there. This is the dumbest "SMART TV" on the market.
Re: Samsung Remote Not Working Properly
I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. In order for me to help you most accurately, please provide the complete model code for this device.
I have the same problem with my UN55ES7100FXZA. Works fine if I use a remote app on my phone, but with the Samsung remote I have no control over streaming video apps at all. I can start them, but once the video starts, the only way I can control it or the volume is to use my phone. Total pain...
i am also having a problem with the remote. it does not work once watching amazon instant video. tv is un55es7100
samsung remote with smart tv not working
yes , when i start to watch on amazon prime the remote stops working. i cannot even exit or shut off the tv. my other cable remote also does not function for the tv. i downloaded the samsung remote app to my ipad and that does work!!
Re: samsung remote with smart tv not working
OK, you feel up to making a video showing the app working but the physical remote not working?
remote not working with smarthub
i need directions on attaching video, or i can email it
The videos are nice, but why do you need them? The descriptions on here more than adequately describe the problem. Same problem has been mentioned numerous other places on the Web...
Please offer a fix if you know one.
And at least a link to the other discussion.
Same issue with remote
Model un60es7100 - remote works fine except when using an app. Everything is fine up to the point that the app starts steaming something. Best bet is using the iPad or Android apps to control it, then I can still control the tv when the app is running and streaming something. My example apps are TedTalks, Netflix, and YouTube.
Both my smart remote and regular remotes are not working. Initially just the power button was not working but now no other buttons are working. I've replaced the batteries but still nothing. Any advice on what to do? I'm hoping its not a default sensor on the tv. Some assistance would be greatly appreciated.
This is a very old posting.
You see that members rarely come back so I'd top post this and crosspost in AVS Forum.
My advice is to try a samsung remote then get estimates on repair.
Same problem with the remote
I just bought the Samsung UN55ES7150F. I am having trouble changing volume/mute when I use any of the apps. I tried with netflix, and amazon prime.
The remote works well when I am not using the apps. However, this makes my watching of netflix on this smart TV quite painful.
Is this a problem with this model? is there something I can do to fix this? I already have the latest firmware.
Re: Samsung Remote Not Working Properly
Hi dlkbj1967 and others,
We've been unable to replicate the behavior you've been reporting. Could someone experiencing this issue please provide a video and then also list out what firmware version you're currently on?
Same problem... UN55ES7150
I am experiencing the same problem. IN this case I am running the Amazon app on smart TV and streaming an HD video over WIFI. And,yes, the TV responds just fine if I am watching a program via my STB.
The TV either does not respond or will respond to 1 out of 20 or so commands from the remote. It doesn't seem to matter what button you push (normally volume... but even pause or mute does not respond).
Like Mato above, I can exert control using the myTifi Remote app on my iPhone.
Samsung HD Tech... what do you want to see in a video?
Re: Same problem... UN55ES7150
Please do. We've simply been unable to replicate the issue thus far, and we've had little data to do so.
But what do you want to see in the video?
What do you want to see on the Video?
I am running version 001025. Issues with non-response to the remote occur when I am running HD video thru Amazon Instant Video on Smart TV. In my case I am using WiFi for connectivity... and I am thinking that this may be part of the problem... If I use WiFi and SD video on Amazon, it appears that the TV responds to the remote a more regularly than if I am watching HD.
- that the red LED on the bottom right corner of the screen normally flashes when the TV is reading the remote. However, when the TV is not responsive to the remote, the red LED does not flash.
- When I pause the HD video then the TV is very responsive to the remote.
Re: But what do you want to see in the video?
My wishlist of things to see would include:
- start with a shot of this Smart Hub details by going here: Smart Hub > Tools > Settings > Properties > Details
- demonstrate you're navigating through the Smart Hub Menu without a problem
- open up Amazon Instant video app
- show remote with a button being depressed for a simple function and the TV not responding
- continue by showing the lack of the red LED flashing on the TV
- point the remote into the camera show the IR bulb; it'll actually flash purple (not visible to the naked eye)
- switch to iPhone in frame with the same command being sent to the TV and the TV responding
I am using an iPhone to do the video... so I cannot easily show you the app working...
At the following link you will see at least most of what you are looking for...
I hope this helps.
Thanks so much! This is the first solid data we've actually got on this issue. I forwarded this along to our testing team. So they may have more questions.
Another bit of info wrt Remote Control
Today I set up Networking via hard wire to the TV (up til now I have been using wireless networking). Running the same test as before I have no problems with the remote.
My conclusion is that the remote control issue is with the TV... When using a wireless network while watching something that is data intensive... the TV can't service the infrared remote at the same time as the wireless input.
My two cents, anyway.
Re: Another bit of info wrt Remote Control
That may be so. If you'd like to make a video also demonstrating this issue with your model, I'll be happy to send it along.
Re: Another bit of info
Bah, had too little sleep last night. I realized right after I posted this that you were the same use who posted the video. -- HD Tech
Have you discovered a fix for this?
I called support about this and they weren't able to fix with firmware and reset. We need a resolution to this issue or we need replacement hardware.
I have the UN55ES7100FXZA as well.
Samsung curved tv remote not working fixed!
Thank you for putting this information out there. I was going bananas trying to figure out what was wrong with my remote or tv. I connected an Ethernet cable directly instead of wireless and boom issue with remote not working fixed! Unbelievable Samsung this post is from January of 2013 and here it is May 2015 and you guys haven't fixed this issue yet?! People are plopping down thousands of dollars to buy your products least you can do is sell ones that work!
