Find a replacement remote control for your Samsung TV

Samsung TV and replacement Samsung Remote control

Losing your TV’s remote is a pain. Thankfully, there replacements available from both Samsung and third party companies. Or maybe you know exactly where your remote is, but you'd rather use your phone to control your TV. No matter your situation, we'll help you enjoy your favorite shows and movies again, even without your original remote control.

Use your phone to control the TV

If you lose your remote, you can just connect your phone to the TV and use it as a remote control. There are a few ways you can do this:

  • The Samsung Smart View app lets you stream content from your phone to your Samsung smart TV. It also lets you use your phone as a remote control by tapping the Remote Control icon. The control options will be displayed on your phone's screen.

  • The Samsung SmartThings app lets you control your TV no matter where you are. Connect your phone to your TV, and then navigate to the SmartThings app. Select your TV from the list of available devices. From there, you can use the remote control features.

  • There are many third-party remote control apps available from the Google Play and iTunes stores. Peel and SURE are are two very popular options, and they're both available on Android and iOS.

Purchase a replacement Samsung remote

With all the TV models we have made over the years and will continue to make, and all the model numbers for our remotes, it would be hard to provide a list of every TV and its corresponding remote. The good news is, it is easy to find a replacement. Here's how: 

Purchase your Samsung TV model remote

  1. Navigate to Samsung Parts.

  2. Enter your TV model number.

    enter the TV model into the model number field on samsungparts.com
  3. All of the parts and accessories for your model will appear. Scroll down until you find the remote.

Purchase a compatible Samsung TV remote

Let us fill you in on a little secret. You don't have to get the remote that came with your TV. If you are just looking for a replacement, allow us to recommend BN59-01301A. It's available for around 12 dollars on Samsung Parts. This remote will offer basic functionality for every single Samsung TV model since the IR codes have never changed. Of course, if you still want to keep using your original remote, but it isn't working, you can troubleshoot it.

Note: The list of supported models indicate the TV models that included this remote and do not represent the only TVs it is compatible with.

Purchase a compatible third-party replacement

Most universal remotes will work with your Samsung TV. Visit Amazon to check out available universal remotes. Confirm the compatibility and setup with the remote’s manufacturer. But if you'd prefer to keep your original remote, but it isn't working, you can troubleshoot it.
