Samsung Frame TV Remote Not Working / Pairing

Is your Samsung Frame remote only working from a few inches away or not at all or is the light flashing red?

This could mean a mean few things: 

1)If you're seeing the status light on your Samsung Remote flashing red repeatedly, it could mean a couple of things. Either your TV has become unpaired from the remote, or your remote batteries are dead. This could have happened if you accidentally held a button down for too long, causing the remote to reset to factory defaults. Perhaps it happened because someone sat on it or a child was playing with it. Don't worry, we've got you covered with instructions and a video to help you out.

2) If the Remote is only working from a few inches away it either means you need to unpair and repair your remote.

Another scenario could be you're using one of our Deco TV Frames AND you are NOT using the remote that came with the Samsung Frame TV. Checkout This Article for more on using third party universal remotes with Samsung Frame TVs.


Both of the above symptoms can easily be solved with the following video. 

⚠️ If you have one of our Deco TV Frames on your TV...  un-latch the bottom of the frame and hold the remote near where the sensor is on the TV for the pairing process to work. ⚠️ 

Pairing the Remote is very easy... but we strongly suggest doing a full reset of the remote before you re-pair it to the TV. 

Here's how to reset the remote before you re-pair it.

Press down the Back and Play Buttons simultaneously for 4-7 seconds to put the Samsung Frame TV into pairing mode (also use the same procedure to put Samsung Frame TV remote into unpairing mode).
