Samsung blue ray remote not working with samsung TV

by captn_rob / June 9, 2012 8:29 AM PDT

I have a Samasung LED 46 series 6 TV and Blue Ray HT C550 player.

The remote that came with the Blueray use to work on the player and the tv by pressing a button which would change colour from orange for player and green for tv, after 2 weeks the remote stopping working on TV (green light) control mode and only works on the player (orange light) mode. Basically this suck as I have to use both remotes to function each unit. Is there a reset button to make the Blueray remote once again work for both units? I went back to the store where I purchased the products and they were as useless as **** on a bull and had no idea on the problem. Anyone have any ideas on what could be the problem and how to fix it.

Try Enabling Anynet

OK, can you check to make sure that Anynet is enabled on both devices? You can do this by going to: Setup > HDMI > Anynet-CEC > On.

Then check back with me as to what the results were.

I have encountered same issue and it was a really painful to use the white TV remote while the AH59 not working for TV. Now it is resolved after 5 days.

But can anyone update as to why this reset happens.
