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 the status light on your Samsung Remote flashes red repeatedly this means either your TV has become unpaired from the TV or your remote batteries are dead. (See instructions and video below). This could have happened by accidentally holding a button down for too long and resetting the remote to factory defaults perhaps from being sat on or a child playing with it. 

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.
