The infrared receiver of these glasses is located on the top-middle of the 3D glasses, between the liquid crystal shutters.

Now how to charge these glasses? To charge, connect one end of the cable that is provided, to a USB port, this port can belong to a Television or a personal computer, afterward, you need to connect the remaining end of the cable to a Micro USB available on the 3D glasses.

The USB port that you will use can be a 2.0 one. Now, these Samsung 3D glasses will charge as long as your television or your personal computer is working.

Battery Operated Samsung 3d Glasses

The second type of 3D glasses is battery-operated ones. You can know when to charge these with the help of the power button on the 3D glasses.

There is an LED on the glasses and if this LED is continuously blinking then it means that the battery is quite low and you need to replace them.

If you do not see the light blinking even after pressing the power button then you need to replace the batteries immediately as they are completely depleted out.

Another point to note here is that you should use the Lithium Manganese Dioxide one for replacement and no other.

How to pair Samsung 3d glasses?

Pairing is the process of two devices connecting. So if you found your 3D glasses not working then there is a chance that they are not working because they need to be paired up.

Now for this follow the steps given below:

  1. Switch on your Samsung smart TV and ensure that your 3D glasses are within 19.5 inches of range from your Samsung smart tv.
  2. Next switch on your Samsung 3D glasses by pressing the power button on them briefly. Now once the 3D glasses have been powered up, they will start to pair up with your Samsung smart tv itself.
  3. You will come to know whether the 3D glasses have paired up with Samsung smart tv by the message that will come up on the tv screen. If you see a message on your TV screen stating “ 3D glasses are connected to the TV” then the glasses have paired up with the TV successfully and if you do not see any such message then you need to power off your 3D glasses and the Samsung smart TV and try again after switching both of them on.

One thing to note here is that if your glasses do not work even after you have paired them up successfully with the Samsung smart TV then it means that you will need to get them repaired.

You may need to repair it even if you are trying to stream a 3D video on another Samsung 3D television.

How can you check the view range of your Samsung 3D glasses?

Communication between the tv and the 3D glasses for the Samsung tv is done with the help of Emitter.

Therefore, you should not place anything in front of the emitter to make their communication obstacle-free.

Also, the distance between the two, emitters and glasses needs to be less than 6 meters, only then will they work properly.

How to check the emitter’s functioning on Samsung 3d glasses?

The LED of this emitter can be found on the bottom left corner of the Samsung Smart TV.

This LED displays a red color if transmission by the emitter is done properly. But there is a catch; the human eye is not able to see the red emission from this LED because of its wavelength.

So how can you check this? For this, you will need a digital camera, the one available on your mobile phone can work as well.

If the emitter is working properly that is transmitting properly then you will be able to see a red dot on the mobile screen once you are trying to capture this LED with the camera of your phone.
