Connect the Samsung Smart Remote to your TV

Man with samsung remote connected to the Smart TV

Your Samsung Smart Remote is designed to connect to your Samsung TV automatically to make the setup easier. You can sync the remote with a different Samsung Smart TV at any time if you'd like, but it will only work with one TV at a time. If you're going to use it with multiple TVs, you'll have to manually pair it to your desired TV each time.

Note: Images, buttons, and functions of the Samsung Smart Remote may differ by model.

Connect the Samsung Smart Remote to your TV

Point the Smart Remote at the remote control sensor on the TV. On most Samsung TVs, the remote control sensor is located on the lower right hand side of the TV. If not, it is directly in the bottom center.

Next, press and hold the Return and Play/Pause buttons simultaneously for at least 3 seconds. Your TV will begin syncing with the Smart Remote. Then a message will appear, indicating that the remote is now connected to your TV.

If you have lost it, there are multiple ways you can replace your remote. If your remote does not have the same buttons, you can check the user manual for steps specific to your model. If you are still having problems connecting your remote, or if the remote is not working the way it should, we can help with that too.
