Samsung LN52A650 and LN52A750 LCD TV and Comcast Remote Codes

*****Note I received this as a comment to this post and I want to add it here to hopefully save people some time. Bryan (thanks Bryan) said he ran into issues with the codes and called Comcast and found out that "if your remote has a red "OK/Select" button in the middle you use a 5 digit code. Remotes with a gray "OK/Select" button use a 4 digit code. Many of the published 4 digit codes work by placing a 1 in front of them. "*****

I was trying to program the Comcast Digital Cable box remote to control the TV also. I tried all of the codes included with the remote but none worked for the new Samsung LN52A650 LCD TV. I looked around on the net and found someone saying to use a five digit code 10060. It worked, but I believe the code is actually 1006. I don't think the remote accepts a 5 digit code.

Thanks to stardotstar for posting this on http://www.highdefforum.com/showthread.php?t=62963. I had a hard time finding this so I wanted to document it again hoping it will be easier to find.

I found some more codes you can try when programming a cable box remote for use with Samsung TV:
1005, 1006, 1016, 1023, 1026, 1032, 1088, 1112, 1146, 1155, 1157, 1158, 1163, 1167, 1172, 1173, 1192, 1194, 1224, and 1225.

Here are comments that might be helpful:
From Anonymous: Try 10702 I used 10060 and it worked, however, it didn't function all the time and the volume was hard to control, as well. I own a 37" 450 Series Samsung. This is the only code that worked for it. Thanks for the help!

From Anonymous: 1163 worked without making the cable box jump to On Demand every time we hit 8

I also need to program the remote to control an old Kenwood Receiver (model RC-R0800). I have not tried these codes yet but did find some to try:
Kenwood 1313, 1027, 1570, 1569, 0027
I tried these codes for the model of Kenwood receiver we have RC-R0800 and these codes seemingly did not work. But, this was actually done by my Dad - I was helping him over the phone. We ended up buying a universal remote and discovered why the above codes may have worked but we didn't know. Usually when testing a code they tell you to hit the power button to see if it turns on the device. In this case, we found out the Kenwood had to be on. Nothing would turn it on from off, but if we turned it on, we could then turn it off. Once we did that we could turn it on and off. He was going to go back and try the Comcast codes but I have not talked to him since then. If you try this, turn on your device and see if the remote will turn it off - for some reason it wouldn't turn it on when testing even if it was the right code.

was frustrated to hear that the ln52a650 was having problems coding with the comcast digital cable remotes. Finally found that the code 1006 or 10060 worked for me and I can finally turn on my tv and work the cable box in harmony.

The code 10060 worked with my Samsung HL67A750 on our Comcast remote. Thanks.
PS. Why can't comcast just list 5 digit codes when they know 4 digit codes are incomplete.

After reading the directions and pulling my hair out I called Comcast and leared that if your remote has a red "OK/Select" button in the middle you use a 5 digit code. Remotes with a gray "OK/Select" button use a 4 digit code. Many of the published 4 digit codes work by placing a 1 in front of them.

The code 10060 (as mentioned here and on other user-driven sites) worked perfectly for our new LN46B650 Samsung LCD TV. Interesting case of the interweb being more accurate than Comcast's printed data.
Thanx!

Bryan, Thanks for the bit of info about the remote, that saved me a lot of time.

Code 0060 worked for my 52" 8 series.

The 10060 code also worked for my Samsung LN40B640. The four-digit code is recognized as incomplete.

Thanks for your help. It's pretty sad that I have to find the correct code on somebody's blog site. Way to go, Comcast.

For my Samsung LN40C650, with the Comcast silver universal remote with red OK button, remote code 10702 (from this site) worked perfectly, while other codes did not. Thanks!

I'm glad it worked. That's great. Thanks for the post.

Thanks to the poster w/ 8 series 52" because the same code 0060 also worked for my Time Warner Cable remote on a Samsung 610 40" (LN40C610).
