zTV Remote Manual

Step 1: Activating the Battery

To activate your zTV remote, simply remove the shipping tab.

Step 2: Pairing the zTV Remote with Your TV

Note: The zTV remote is preprogrammed to function with the majority of Samsung TVs.
Press and Hold the “Center Button”:
To initiate Pairing mode, press and hold the “Center Button” on the zTV remote for about 10 seconds or until the LED flashes red five times rapidly.

Aim Your TV Remote:
Within 10 seconds of entering Pairing mode, aim your TV remote about 6 inches away from the “Front Sensor” on the zTV remote.

Press Your TV Remote’s Power Button:
Press your TV remote’s power button once quickly without holding it down.

  • If the pairing succeeds, the zTV remote’s LED will flash green, indicating that the pairing is complete and successful.
  • If the pairing fails or times out, the LED will flash red, indicating an unsuccessful attempt.

Repeat the Steps (If Needed):
If the pairing fails, you can repeat the above steps to try again. 

Test Pairing Success:
Use the steps described below to turn the TV “ON” or “OFF” using the section above “TV Power ON and OFF.”

Contact Support (If Still Unsuccessful):
If all the steps have been followed correctly, but you are still unable to pair the zTV remote successfully, you can reach out to for further assistance.

It’s essential to ensure that you follow the steps accurately and aim your TV remote towards the “Front Sensor” on the zTV remote during the pairing process.

Step 3: Verify the Pairing

Aim the zTV remote at the TV once again and press the center button for 2 seconds before releasing it. At the 2-second mark, you will notice the LED blinking green, indicating that you can release the button. If the TV responds, the pairing was successful. If not, return to step 2 to repeat the pairing process.

Step 4: Positioning Your zTV Remote

Find an optimal location for your zTV remote, ensuring a clear line of sight with the TV. The remote’s top or front sensor must directly face the TV and be within a maximum distance of 30 feet. For horizontal placement, point the front sensor towards the TV, while for vertical mounting, position the top sensor towards the TV.

Test your chosen location by placing the remote on a surface and holding the button for 2 seconds. If the TV responds, secure the remote with Velcro.

Common placements include attaching the zTV remote to your bed headrest or night table for convenient access. Use Velcro to maintain its position and line of sight with the TV.

Step 5: Using the zTV Remote

The remote simplifies TV timer settings without navigating complex menus.

  • To set a timer, use the center button. Each click sets the timer in 15-minute increments. For instance, press the button three times quickly to set a 45-minute timer. The green LED will flash corresponding to the number of clicks.
  • To extend the timer, press the button again for the desired time. Any new button presses will cancel the previous timer and initiate a new one.
  • To manually turn off the TV, press and hold the button for 2 seconds. Release after two seconds to turn off the TV, also canceling any active timer.

Note: While a timer is set, avoid using another remote to turn off the TV, as it will turn on when the timer expires due to the TV power button’s toggle function.
