Samsung Remote Queston

by idg76092 / February 25, 2014 2:01 PM PST

I bought an open box Samsung PN60f8500 but the remote was missing. I ordered the AA59-00758a off of Ebay (the f8500 was listed as compatible). I just looked up some info and it says that this remote is for LCD's not plasmas? Will this remote work with my f8500 plasma? If so how do I program it? Thanks!

Pairing button

I tried holding down the pairing button and tried pressing it once, twice and so on. Nothing worked. I'm guessing that this remote won't work with the f8500. Any other ideas?

Pairing worked, can't get soundbar to work

Thanks! The pairing worked great and I've been able to program the remote to work all of the components except for the Pioneer Speakerbar SP-SB23W. I've gone through trying to auto find the code 3x's and then I have to select the model number from the list. The SP-SB23W is the last option on page 2. When I select it and then select Power Test, nothing happens? Is there something different I need to do to get this remote to work with the speakerbar?

With the TV on, Press the pairing button on the back of the remote while pointing it at the tv's sensor.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
