Hi guys,

I've just bought a new remote for my TV as mine's just up and quit working, but the damned thing will not connect to my TV! Can anyone tell me the device code for a Samsung SyncMaster 932MW, or where I can find one? I hear tell they're in the manual, but mine's long gone and Google doesn't seem to understand what one is. Gah!

Any help much appreciated!

it should be in the manual for the universal remote.
how could that be "long gone" if you "just got" it :confused:

look up your manual online

also - don't be surprised if you got a remote that doesnt work with any of the samsung codes. not all remotes actually work for everything.

No, the TV manual's gone, not the remote one. I've tried all the codes in it and the 'quick search' function and nada. I have a feeling this is my own fault for buying a cheap remote.

which one did you get?
if its older than the TV - it may not work

but just double check to make sure you have followed the proceedure properly.

It's so cheap it actually has no brand name on it, it's a store-own one!

I've double checked the procedure and I was doing it right the first time.

No matter, the TV needs to be replaced anyway (for the second time in two years...fume), I'll make them send a new remote out too.
