Samsung DVD remote in the Interstate?

Am I just missing the most obvious thing here? I havenít been able to get our Samsung DVD player to work with our remote. I assume it possibly works off the Samsung TV remotes that came with the Interstate, but donít know for sure if they work at all off a remote. Can someone give me a tutorial on it if youíve gotten it to work? We got no instruction manual with our Interstate regarding the TVs or DVD player.
This is so spoiled but itís really annoying to have to find the buttons on the top of the DVD player and to get around the furry little road blocks in our way to get it to play.

The Samsung DVD player in our 2014 AI has its own remote.

Our 2017 AI has an IR repeater mounted above the front TV. It blinks red when you use a remote pointed at it. Do you have one? If it’s not set up correctly or has failed you would have trouble controlling the DVD.

Hmmm.

When I have these kinds of issues I get my electronics whiz son on the phone to trouble shoot.

Almost always he can fix it.

If you donít figure it out, perhaps a teen or adult wizard near you can help.

Thatís what I would do.

Remotes for DVD

My new FC, 2016, came with 3 remote controllers. Two seem to be mistaken, as they only have a few nearly useless buttons doing anything. Thankfully the other works. If I were to purchase another controller.....where? And how will I know I have the correct unit?

I had to hold the remote overhead and pointed at the DVD player to get any response. It was best when I moved the DVD player as close to the glass as possible.

I think we got three remotes with our Interstate, and I think Iíve tried all three. Thereís a tutorial on YouTube that I finally found that shows a reset and relearn by holding down the play button on the DVD player for about twenty seconds, if I remember it right from late last night.

Iím going to try that and see what happens. Iíll also try moving it closer but Iím pretty sure Iíve tried it up itís nose and it still didnít work.

Youíd be amazed how a four pound Pom can cause such issue when she wants to be like a wet flour bag and not move off your feet or let you get up to hit play! Iíll be thankful if your suggestions work! Itís also getting cold and who wants to climb out of the warm blankets when itís hitting 30 degrees out at night! Thanks for the suggestions. Iíll see if I canít get it to work tomorrow. Will report back in case anyone else has this problem.

MOUNTAINLIFE - Yes, and even if it's setup correctly, it does not always receive the incoming signal or re-transmit inside the overhead. I had to re-route mine (both transmitters and receiver) when I re-did my tv wiring during my change to the smaller tv's for front and rear. Ours blinks blue, but same difference, probably just different brand or model IR repeater. It works great when the transmitter is aimed straight at dvd with no obstruction in between (just as diagram shows).

Haven’t had any time to mess with the DVD since cold is hitting us suddenly and of course, that means winterizing. I did check out the remotes and noticed we got three of the same kind. In the trailer, there is a different remote that makes the DVD player work (I think it had more black on it than the TV remote). I hadn’t noticed the difference until Linolated said there’s a separate remote for it. Maybe we got the wrong “model” remote with the Interstate. Will report back.

Cheers to checking out on my most uninteresting topic on this forum everÖ


My guess is someone messed up and we had three Samsung tv remotes included with our Interstate. Purchased a Samsung black button remote off Amazon and the DVD player works like it should now. Much easier since it wasnít exactly easy to find the buttons on the top of the DVD box.

Thanks for helping me solve the mystery!
