Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
To test an apparently dead TV/DVD/Satelite/etc remote control, the easiest way to do this is to point it at a switched on digital camera and look at the camera display. The remote uses infra red light which the human eye cannot see, but digital cameras can. As you press any button on the remote, you should see a glow coming from the remote in the camera display.
No glow means the remote is dead.
A glow means the remote is most likely okay and it is the device that it controls that is actually faulty.
