Samsung TV Codes (and How To Use Them!)

I finally got my hands on a new universal remote control. When I went to set it up with my Samsung TV, I noticed I needed the correct code to pair the devices. This got me wondering what exactly these codes were and how to find them.

Samsung TV codes are unique identifiers that are used to pair devices like universal remotes. These codes are required to successfully connect a third-party remote to the TV. The specific code you need will be based on what model of Samsung TV you have.

This guide has compiled all of the Samsung TV codes that are currently available for all models and devices (scroll down for the complete list). You can use this guide to help you determine which code you need to pair your devices with.

How To Use Samsung TV Code To Connect Remote Control

Connecting Samsung Smart Remotes

Samsung Smart remotes do not need codes to be paired with a TV. If you have recently purchased a new Samsung Smart remote, the following steps will help you pair it with your TV.

1. Point the Samsung Smart remote at the TV.

2. Press and hold both the Return and Play button at the same time for at least 5 seconds.

3. Once the five seconds have passed, the pairing process will automatically begin.

4. When this process has been completed, you will receive a notification on your TV.

This only applies to Samsung Smart remotes. If you have a third-party universal remote, you will need to use the method in the next section.

Connecting Third-Party Universal Remotes

Third-party universal remotes require that you enter the right pairing code to use with your Samsung TV. This code can be found in the list above. Once you have determined what code applies to your model of Samsung, the steps below will walk you through the process.

Code search is the easiest method for pairing your universal remote to your TV. Using this method, the code is found automatically. To use this method, follow the steps below.

1. Turn your TV on and press the TV button on your remote control.

2. Press and hold the Setup button until the TV light blinks twice.

3. Once your TV lights have blinked twice, enter the number 911.

4. After the light blinks again, point the remote at the TV and press the power button.

5. Keep pressing the Channel Up button until the TV turns off.

6. Once the TV has turned off, use the power button on your remote to turn the TV back on.

7. Press the Setup button again to confirm the code for your TV.

Sometimes, the code search does not turn up the right results. If this is the case, use the next method to manually enter the code for your TV. This is the only way to pair a remote that has failed the code search method. I learned this the hard way when trying to program my DirectTV remote.

Manual Entry

1. Turn your TV on and press the TV button on your remote control.

2. Press and hold the Setup button until the TV light blinks twice.

3. Once your TV lights have blinked twice, enter the code you found for your model Samsung TV.

4. If you have entered the correct code, the LED will blink twice on your TV.

5. Press the TV button one more time and then press and hold the Setup button.

6. Release the Setup button when the LED blinks twice to complete the process.

Samsung TV Code Not Working

Your Samsung TV Code might not be working due to hardware issues or software glitches. These issues will be covered in the sections below. You can use this information to help you resolve any issues with the pairing process.

Wrong Samsung TV Code

The most common cause for issues during the pairing process is a wrong TV code. If you attempt to pair a remote using the wrong code, it will not work properly. The code you use depends on the model of Samsung TV that you have.

You can find the model number for your Samsung TV in the manual for your device. You can also find it located on the back of your TV. If you are still unsure, a quick internet search for your TV can help you determine the model number.

Once you have made sure you are using the right model number, try the pairing process again. This will generate the proper code for use with your remote control. If you are still having issues it could be due to software or hardware errors.

Remote Batteries Dead

If your remote batteries are dead, not installed, or oriented correctly, then you could have pairing issues. Because of this, you need to ensure that you have properly installed your batteries and that they have a full charge.

If the batteries are not the issue and your remote is working properly, then software issues could be the cause of your problem. This issue will be covered in the section below.

Samsung TV Not Updated

A Samsung TV that has not been updated properly will often experience issues pairing remotes. Your Samsung depends on regular updates to keep the software running properly. The process to update your Samsung TV will be detailed below.

1. Connect your Samsung TV to a stable internet connection.

2. Open the Samsung Settings menu by pressing the Home button on your remote. If you do not have a remote, open the Menu manually using the buttons on the side of your TV.

3. In the Settings menu, Select Support.

4. In the Support menu, select Software Update.

5. In the Software Update menu, select Auto Update to enable automatic updates.

6. Wait for the TV to automatically check for updates.

7. Download and install any available updates for your Samsung TV.

If updating your Samsung TV’s firmware did not resolve your issue, you should consider the possibility that your TV is damaged and may need to be replaced.

Samsung TV Hardware Issue

You should consider unplugging your Samsung TV from the wall to allow it time to fully drain all stored power. This will allow your Samsung to power down completely and restart fresh. Unplugging your TV from the wall will ensure that any erroneous system functions are ended.

Sometimes small amounts of power will remain in your TV after you turn it off, leading to internal software processes that may not have ended properly. Unplugging the TV from the wall will allow you fully power down your TV and restart it. I used this method while troubleshooting a volume issue on my Samsung TV.

You should leave your TV unplugged for at least sixty seconds for this process to work effectively. After the sixty seconds have elapsed, plug your TV back in and the issue will likely have been resolved.

Final Thoughts

Samsung TV codes are a quick and easy way to pair a remote control with your TV. It is a simple task that only requires that you determine your Samsung TV’s model number. This will allow you to apply the proper code for pairing your devices.

After you have found the proper code for your TV, the setup process is simple and only takes a few minutes. This will get you back to watching your favorite shows in no time.
