VOLUME AND MUTE CONTROLS NOT WORKING ON SKY REMOTE

Hi,

My sky remote is not working when I try to control the volume or press mute.  My TV remote works though.  However I have been using my sky remote with the same TV for 2 years with no problems, that is until yesterday.  I have followed all of the directions to try to reset my remote but there doesn't seem to be an exact match for a code between my TV and my remote.  I have a rev. 8R sky+HD remote and a Samsung UE 40B6000VW TV.  Please can someone help as it is driving me mad!!!!

Thanks

Re: VOLUME AND MUTE CONTROLS NOT WORKING ON SKY REMOTE

Hi stoom, 

 

I have checked our systems and can confirm that the code 0060 should work for a Samsung UE40B6000VW TV. 

 

Can you let me know if this works?

 

Thanks,

Re: VOLUME AND MUTE CONTROLS NOT WORKING ON SKY REMOTE

See if this helps. Remove one battery,hold down the select button for 60 seconds before replacing the battery.

 

And have you tried 0646 ?

Re: VOLUME AND MUTE CONTROLS NOT WORKING ON SKY REMOTE

Thanks for your quick reply.  I have tried both of your suggestions but neither has worked.  It's just weird that it has been compatable for the last two years then it stopped working yesterday.  I haven't even changed the batteries recently.

 

Thanks for your response

Hi Anne,

 

Thank you for replying.  I tried 0060 just now but that hasn't worked either. 

 

Thanks though,

Hi stoom,

 

Thanks for getting back to us.

 

I would suggest that you try some of the following codes to try and resolve this. The codes are 0206, 0730, 1277, 1263, 0710, 0840, 1340, 0794 or 0842.

 

Let us know how you get on.

 

Regards.

Hi GregorA,

Sorry i accidentally clicked the wrong post as a solution to our problem.  I can't thank you enough for helping as it's been driving us mad.  The code for our Samsung TV and rev 8 remote is 0730.

 

Thanks again

Stoom

Re: VOLUME AND MUTE CONTROLS NOT WORKING ON SKY REMOTE

Hi MrsClarke123,

As this is your first post I would like to welcome you to the forum Smiley Happy

Can you try removing one battery, press and hold the select button for 60 seconds - reinsert the battery. Once you have done this, please enter the code 1679 (as this is confirmed to be the correct code)?

Please let me know how you get on.

Thanks,
Anne

Re: VOLUME AND MUTE CONTROLS NOT WORKING ON SKY REMOTE

Hi mrscla,

 

As this is your first post I would like to welcome you to the forum :smielyhappy:

 

Can you let me know the following information:

 

  • What version of remote control do you have (this can be found on a sticker in the battery compartment and will look like SkyRev.8R)
  • What is the make and model number of your TV

 

Thanks,

Anne
