Find a replacement remote control for your Samsung TV
Losing your TV’s remote is a pain. Thankfully, there are 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
The fastest way to control your TV without worrying about waiting for a replacement remote is to get out your phone. If you've set this up and given permission before, or you still have your remote, it's a breeze. But if you've lost your remote, when your TV asks permission for your phone to connect you can use the controls on your TV to give it. (See your user manual for instructions.)
Here's some of the ways you can use your phone as a remote:
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.

Finding the specific remote your Samsung TV came with
Remotes are not sold on Samsung.com, they are instead available on our parts website, samsungparts.com. There are many models of remotes, all with slight variation, but you can find the exact remote your TV came with easily by putting in your TV's model number and then scrolling down through the part list until you see the remote.
Purchase an inexpensive alternative Samsung TV remote
Remotes can vary in price for different models, so here's a little secret: All of our IR remotes work with all of our TV's. You can pick any IR remote you like and it will work with your TV, even if your TV isn't listed as a compatible model for that remote.
Because of this, we recommend the BN59-01301A. This is one of the newer and cheaper models (around 12 dollars on samsungparts.com) and offers basic functionality, if that's all you need.
Purchase a compatible third-party replacement
Troubleshooting your current remote
Not ready to throw the old one out just yet? Think it still has some life left in it? If you still have your remote but it's not working, see our troubleshooting guide for steps to try to get it working again.
