I think you have lost your precious Remote because you don't do it by yourself if you have not any experience about electronics. You made a mistake to wash it out with alcohol and i think you didn't give time to dry it.And moisture was still there and you you connect batteries with it too.That's why you feel hot.It means that a short circuit has been occurred in it.My advise is to contact any expert nearby to you and avoid any new experiment on it.It can be repaired yet.

Does anyone know how to fix the Sony RDR-VX560 DVD Recorder/VCR so that the DVD door closes? It closes but immediately pops back open and won't stay closed.

try a factory reset to see if that will help, but first take the batteries out of your remote, to see if this is causing the problem, if it is the remote you may have to take it apart and clean the board with alcohol.

The volume control is not working properly on my CT-90319 remote controller.

Take the remote apart and clean all the rubber pads beneath and the PC board with the black resistive ink on it with a Q tip and isopropynol alcohol.

Then clean with a soft pink pencil eraser, and clean again with the q tip and alcohol.

It is best to do all of the buttons once apart, but if you only wish to get that one working, then just do the volume control buttons.

Don't be afraid to do is easier than it seems!

That will get you up and running again pending there is no small fractures in the resistive ink. 90% chance of working!

I hope this helps you!

Vcr remote control not working.

Hi! Bella , more research needed .... do you match each remote to its own VCR model?...did they ever work ?...have you put batteries in wrong polarity ?...are the VCR's at fault or blinded by ambient light ?.....are you pointing remotes correctly ?.....try your remotes on dealer's VCR's @ his shop & get dealer to try his remotes on your VCR's , or find a friend with same gear & do the tests there.......that should identify the problem[s] .... take careful notes of the results... & go from there.......jimbanjo

Buttons do not work on my URC-8910

Most modern infrared remotes have a tendancy, after much use, for the contact between the button and the pad to get dirty or greasy or tarnished, etc.. I've serviced many of them and I take them apart (some not easy--have to remove a screw--maybe not). Anyway the pad surface has to be cleaned. I use a cloth dampened with alcohol and wipe over them and in some cases I need to take a soft pencil eraser and polish them. Hardest part is getting the unit apart.

Could be a bad remote, bad contact on that button. You could try taking it apart and cleaning it with alcohol. You could also try hooking the unit up to your VCR (if you have one). The other option would be to buy a channel 3 modulator.

Hope that helps...
