Samsung TV - LE32S7 - Remote Control

  Border View 11:54 03 Mar 2010

We have a Samsung LE32S7 Flatscreen TV. The remote control buttons for sound and program (both up and down on each) are not working as they should. You can press them for ages and nothing happens.

I have changed the batteries. Other buttons work without a hitch.

Questions - can anyone suggest how to remedy the problem with these buttons.

If I do need to replace the remote where is the best place to get one. I have been bouncing around the web this morning but cannot find the specific model LE32S7 on any of the web sites.

Do I buy an original or is there such a thing as a compatible.

If you Google 'programable tv remote', you will find a vast choice if you are unable to locate the Samsung one.

I have, in the past, taken a remote to bits and cleanded the pressure pad. The only fiddle is locating the securing clips which hold the case together.

Thanks oldbeefer3. I havent been able to find the securing clips either.

I was able to find them (on mine) by easing a sharp knife along the join - when it stopped, a little twist popped open that clip. Continued around the join for the rest.

Hi Shufty = thanks for that. Looks like £43.99 is the going price for the one for my tv.
