Use the joystick on the back of the TV to get to diagnostics. Bottom selection.
Default code if never setup 0000
After the TV reset my Smart Hub remot and Soundbar worked just as before.
What joystick on the back??? Mine don't have it.
Hey I solved this issue by using the Samsung SmartThings app. I connect my IPhone to my tv when I first got it so I am unsure if you will need the remote to select something on your tv to pair your phone. I believe it just connects to the tv if both the phone and the tv are connected to the same internet. Anyway I used the remote on the app to go to Source then Universal Remote. A screen will load up that says Start and Exit. I pressed the power button on my remote on this screen and problem solved. I can use my remote again.
Do do this after performing the “Rain Dance” btw 😀
