How To Program Comcast Remote To New Samsung TV In A Few Easy Steps?
If you have just purchased a Samsung TV but you’re unfortunate to use the original remote, you can always program a Comcast one to become compatible.
We’ve created a step-by-step tutorial, including everything you need to know. Let’s jump right into it!
Note: Your TV will be restarted several times during this process to finalize the programming, so make sure your device won’t go through any outages during that time.
Step #1 Turn ON The TV
Turn on your TV, press the Home button on your remote to go to the Options. If the Samsung remote is not working, and you don’t have a way to get to the options, feel free to use the panel home button.
It is located right in the bottom center of the screen.
Step #2 Initial Setup
Grab your Comcast remote and ensure it is functional. You can take out and in the batteries of your Comcast remote since if the remote isn’t active, your Samsung TV will be unable to detect it, causing the process to fail.
Once you’ve recalibrated the batteries of your remote, follow the instructions below:
- Grab your Comcast remote and point it towards your Samsung TV.
- Locate the setup button on the hardware of the remote.
- Put pressure on the setup button and wait.
- Once the LED on the front of the remote changes from red to green, release the pressure you’ve put from the Setup button.
Step #3 Insert Comcast Remote Code
Once the LED located on the front of the remote turns from red to green, you should input a specific code for activation. By default, with Comcast remotes, that code is 9-9-1.
Note: You can find the number buttons on the lower side of the Comcast remote.
Press these buttons consecutively with a maximum of one second in between each click. Once you’ve entered that combination, you can proceed with the next step.
Step #4 Pair Both Devices
Now that you’ve entered the activation code, keep pressing the Channel Up (CH) button on your Comcast remote. This way your remote will communicate with the TV, automatically pairing both of the devices.
Step #5 Confirm
Once the TV has turned off after pressing the Channel up button, press the Setup button once again to confirm and lock in the code.
At last, press the power button on your remote and the pairing should be successful. Once ready you can try to volume up or down to test if the remote is working.
