Help! I Lost My Remote Control!

Programming a remote

It has happened to all of us. You’re about to sit down on the couch after a long day and watch your favorite TV show, but where’s the remote? Oh no, you’ve misplaced your samsung remote control again. Where could it be?

First, check the most obvious location. The place where lost TV remote controls can typically be found: in between your sofa cushions. In fact, the “Global Remote Control Trends Study” conducted by Logitech revealed that if you misplace your remote control, there is nearly a 50% chance that it is stuck in between your sofa cushions. If you’ve found it hidden in the couch cushions, you’re in luck! You can now enjoy your TV program without having to search any other rooms of the house. If it is still nowhere to be found, it’s time to look in a more unusual location: The fridge!

Yes, it seems strange but it is true that 4% of people who have lost their remotes ultimately find them in the fridge or freezer. This is proof that hunger can make us do funny things. So, if that’s where your samsung remote control has been hiding, great! You can grab a snack and a cold drink and head back to your sofa, remote in hand. If not, you’ll have to take your search a step further by going outdoors.

There is a good chance your missing remote could actually have been left in your car or yard. In fact, 2% of people who were surveyed after misplacing their remotes found it outside or in their car. Hopefully it did not get rained on or go for a joy ride! If you are part of that 2% and found your remote outdoors, you can come back in to the comfort of your home and enjoy your show. If not, the search continues!

If it’s not in the couch cushions, the fridge or outside, you may have to get creative about where to take your search next. Try retracing your steps and visiting other rooms in your house. Who knows, it could even be in the bathroom! Check your purse or backpack for a stowaway remote or in your pantry or cupboards. Dogs have a tendency to be remote control thieves, so if you have a furry friend make sure you bring him in for questioning. Two (or more) heads are better than one, so gather your children and organize a search party. Remember, its always in the last place you look!

If you’ve searched high and low, exhausted all of your options, and you still haven’t located your samsung remote control, it may be time to give up. You’ve missed your show by now, anyway. Thankfully, they make TV remote replacements for this very reason so you can get online and order a samsung remote control replacement right away and have it delivered to your door. Until then, you’ll have to do things the old fashioned way and use the buttons on your TV.
