How to use Qwerty Remote control

Model code : RMC-QTD1AP2

Compatible TV Model code  : Above UA**D6600 / PS**D8000

SVC Guide

Qwerty Remote

The 2011 Qwerty remote gives you the ability to quickly enter text on your Smart TV.
There are two sides to the Qwerty remote, the keyboard side and the standard remote side.

The remote must be paired to the
TV in order to use this side of the
qwerty remote.The keyboard side of
the remote gives you a full qwerty
keyboard and number pad to help
you quickly enter text and control
different Smart TV functions.

This side of the remote
communicates with the TV through
IR. You must have line of sight in
order to control the TV.The standard
remote side of the remote control is a
standard Samsung TV remote
control.

How To Pair The Qwerty Remote
※ Using Qwerty Remote, User must upgrade to latest firmware.
You need to pair your remote with your TV in order to use the keyboard side of the remote.is pressed.
If you remote is not paired the message “NEED PAIRING” will scroll across the display
on the keyboard side of a remote whenever a button.
To pair your remote with your TV follow these steps :
Press and hold the SYM and TAB buttons on the keypad.
The message “PAIRING” will appear on the remote screen. Hold remote within 8″ of the TV.
If the pairing process is successful the message “PAIRED” will be displayed.
You will now be able to use the keyboard side of your remote.
If the message “FAILURE” is displayed thy performing these steps again.
If the “FAILURE” message is displayed again click here for instructions on how to reset the Bluetooth in the TV.

“BT ERROR” Message Appearing On The Screen
If you are receiving a “BT ERROR” message on your remote follow these steps.
1) Remove all batteries from the remote.
2) Wait 30 seconds.
3) Reinsert the batteries in the remote.
4) Attempt pairing again.
5) If “BT ERROR” appears, repeat to attempt pairing.
After repeating if “BT ERROR” appears again your remote will require service.

3D Glasses

3d-active-glasses

If the 3D glasses are not functioning properly

1. First, try to use another pair of 3D glasses with the TV.

  • If another pair of 3D glasses works properly, then the original pair of glasses are defective and must be serviced.
  • If you do not have another pair of glasses, or the other pair of glasses does not function properly either, continue on to the next step.

2. Activate the 3D function on your TV by pressing the 3D button on your remote. You can tell the 3D function of the TV is activated properly when the screen appears slightly blurry without glasses.

3. Use a digital camera or camera phone to view the bottom left area of the TV. If the TV’s emitter is working properly, you will see a flashing light through the screen of the camera.

  • If you see the flashing light, then the glasses are defective and will require service.
  • If you do not see the flashing light, then the TV’s emitter is not functioning properly and it will require service.

Cleaning The 3D Glasses

  • The proper way to clean the 3D glasses is one lens at-a-time.  It is not advisable to clean them in the same way that you would clean regular glasses (one finger on each lens), as it could damage the glasses. Do not clean both sides (front and back) at the same time as this will damage the glasses.
  • 3D glasses actually have 2 screens in each lens, and putting pressure on both sides at the same time will squeeze the 2 lenses together, causing them to come in contact with each other and distort 3D viewing.  When cleaning, use a clean, microfiber cloth and clean one side first, then then other.  Do not clean both sides of the lens together.
  • Do not use any chemicals containing alcohol, solvents, or surfactant. Do not use any chemicals such as wax, benzene, thinner, mosquito repellant, lubricant, or cleaners. These may result in discoloration or cracks on the glasses surface and cause or cause the indication labels to peel off. Do not spray any cleaning liquid directly onto the glasses.

3D Frequently Turns Off By Itself

The 3D features of your Television will automatically turn off in the following occasions :

  • You press the source button to change to a different source, such as switching from watching your cable box to a DVD player.
  • The resolution of the incoming signal changes, such as when changing channels.
  • In both of these situations, it is normal for the 3D feature to turn off automatically. This is normal operation of the TV.

Samsung LCD TV 52″ Clicking sound

TV makes Clicking Noise

If your Samsung  TV (52″ LCD) started clicking several times before finally switching on after 30 seconds, this relay clicking gradually got worse each time I turned the set on. ( It turns out that this is quite a common problem with Samsung TV’s of all sizes). and sounds like a relay clicking on and off.

Here are the Tips :
Usually the problem is in the Power Supply.

STEP :
1. unscrewed the back cover of the TV (20 screws) .

2. Removed the metal cover of the power supply (4 screws)

3. Carefully looked over the power supply looking for anything out of the ordinary, low and behold you could see a few capacitors (the cylindrical shaped components) that had raised tops. These raised tops are caused when the capacitor breaks down and forms hydrogen gas, if left, eventually the capacitors will blow, and hopefully the top will split open and release the gas pressure, if not, they may just explode.

checked out the replacement cost of a new power supply board, buy one in Samsung customer service near your place,

If you decided to replace all the capacitors in the power supply, we guessed if some were bad. Replacing all the capacitors wouldn’t cost much more .

Each Capacitor has 3 important values

  1. The capacitance measured in μF (micro farads) eg (1000μF)
  2. Voltage (eg 50V)
  3. Temperature (eg 105°C)

This particular Power Supply Unit (PSU) has 3 different types.

  • 1000μF 105°C  at 10V
  • 1000μF 105°C  at 25V
  • 47uF  105°C  at 50V

It cost about $ 15 including postage for a 5 pack of each of the capacitors.  I took a few photos of the circuit board so I wouldn’t forget what I was doing and set to work.

re-opened the TV, and completely removed the Power Supply Circuit Board, you need to remove several connectors, again,  took some photos just in case you couldn’t work out where they all went when putting it back together. made sure the Power Supply didnt have any residual power stored in the capacitors by unplugging the TV (whilst it was turned on) from the plug. This is very important as messing with a power supply even 30 minutes after it has been turned off can still give you a nasty shock.

Then drew a simple diagram marking the polarity of each capacitor. To remove each capacitor takes a little time, you need to heat each pin using a soldering iron and whilst it is still molten pull or wiggle each leg out in turn. you found it easiest when you used the other leg as a pivot and rotate the capacitor around the fixed leg.
Anyway once removed,  used the de-solder pump to clean up any solder that was clogging up the hole and then I inserted a new capacitor (checking the values again) and making sure the polarity was same as the one you had just removed. turning the board over, bent the pins a little, soldered the joints, and snipped off any left over wire.

put the board back in and hey-presto it all worked beautifully. Job took about 2 hours in total and excluding tools.

If you snap off the solder connector on the PCB when doing this replacement, it is worth noting that you can re-attach your component in another place as long as it is electrically equal. The Red Line in the diagram below shows where an existing component was, this component could then be re-soldered into any of the positions marked in green. But in the case of a capacitor which has + positive and – negative legs, you must make sure that the leg is re-attached to the same track, I have marked with a + plus sign which track it must be re-attached too.

After replacing the capacitors a few people are still having problems, it appears that this can be fixed by resetting the EPROM chip (apparently – a simple matter of shorting two of the pins).

Other option, just purchase the new Power supply board.
