Why isn't remote working after battery replacement?


As long as the battery produces what the remote needs it should work. However the remote itself could be faulty. Or the remote sensor on your device could be faulty. Check that the old battery has not leaked and messed up the contacts. Plus the new battery is actually touching the contacts!

Tip

Remote not working. Remotes can be saved.


Ok, your remote is not working and you have replaced the batteries and it still does not want to work for the device that you are trying to control. I have listed a few tips below that may be of some help to you; these are all considering you have the original remote that shipped with the unit that you are controlling.
Sometimes the chip inside can become overloaded with commands and lock up the processor.
The remote can be saved.
1. Remove the batteries and press every button on the remote control and then install new, not the batteries you took out, but new batteries and see if that works.
2. If step one does not work, then you can remove the batteries and unfold a small paper clip and bend it into a U shape and use it to touch the contacts on both ends of the battery contacts together and clear the memory.
3. If your remote is still not working then it is time to test the remote control, if you have a camcorder or a digital camera, and a cell phone will work. Point the remote at the device and press any button, you should be able to see the IR (Infrared LED) lighting up on the display.
If after all of these procedures are followed and you still do not have command of the device that you need to control. You still have more options.
Either replace the remote control with a new or compatible one, I use 1-800-remotes, www.remotes.com.
Or have the device that you are trying to control diagnosed by a technician and see if the remote IR receiver in the unit is damaged. Unfortunately there is no simple way to test the remote receiver, and 90% of the time the remote will fix the problem.
I hope that this helps you with your remote issues and as always, Thank you for using FixYa.

"Dead" Remotes Can Be Saved
How to Re-Start Your "Dead" Remote Control
This only takes about a minute and will restart 1 in 3 "Dead" Original Remote Controls. Good Luck!
-----------------------------
Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.
Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!
Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)
Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.
Step 5- Try the remote.
Special Note:
If you have a digital camera, camcorder or camera phone you can test the remote to see if it is emitting a signal. Face the remote towards the lens of the digital unit until you can see the front of the remote. Depress any button on the remote. You should see a light (steady, blink or flashing) being emitted from the remote. If you do then the problem might not be the remote but the sensor on the unit.
If it works, Great!

Hello,
The problem could be from the remote control, check if the RCA theater system do function by pressing the button on it , if this responds meaning that your remote control is faulty.
Defective RCA theater remotes can be repaired. A remote control that does not respond well or that does not work at all probably has worn or defective component parts. Before investing in a replacement remote controller, first test the RCA theater unit to determine if it is not working properl4y. If all systems are in order, consider troubleshooting the remote control with some simple household tools and materials.


Things You'll Need:
Mild soap
Cloth towel
Pencil eraser
Fiberglass brush
Cotton balls
Phillips screwdriver
Aluminum foil (silver and copper)
Epoxy
Step 1
Check to see if the remote is not operating properly because of a bad theater. Press the power button on the RCA theater unit to make sure that the unit itself is working. Put in a dvd plate, press play on the RCA theater unit; if the dvd is playing, there are no problems with the unit. Press the stop button from the remote control. If the RCA theater does not respond, then the remote may be bad.

Step 2
Narrow down the problem using an infrared radiation (IR) detector. The IR may have been switched off, causing interference and range problems between the VCR and its remote. Hit the RCA theater menu button on the unit and search for the IR signal sub-menu. Confer with the remote owner's manual to get the specific codes on resetting the IR signal or simply reset the IR detector back to its factory setting.

Step 3
Clean or replace batteries. Old, corroded or dead batteries can be the cause of the remote malfunctioning. If batteries look corroded, clean off chemical deposits with a soft brush and remove debris with a lint-free cloth. Polish the ends of the batteries (the contacts) with a fiberglass brush or pencil eraser. If batteries appear to be dead, replace with new ones, positioning them in the correct order as identified in the battery compartment.

Step 4
Clean out the battery compartment. Sometimes, it may not be the batteries causing the remote to malfunction, as gunk and dirt can accumulate in the battery compartment and cause the buttons to not respond to pressure. Remove stubborn crud inside the battery panel with a pencil eraser.

Step 5
Disassemble the remote control's front panel with a small Phillips screwdriver. Use a minimal amount of water and mild detergent to wipe away grime and sugar deposits that may have formed around the rubber membrane keypad, circuit board and plastic case (use caution to not directly expose circuit board to liquids). Use a cotton ball to wipe down with isopropyl alcohol. Allow remote's contents to dry thoroughly before replacing components.

Step 6
Correct a worn keypad on remote. According to Shaw Direct, "if you can see the rubber through the conductive material after cleaning, the pad is likely worn to the point of being non-functional." Disassemble the front cover of the remote, exposing the keys and its worn rubber keypad. Use epoxy to glue the aluminum or silver foil onto the control's rubber surface--make sure that you have cut out enough holes for the keys to fit over the foil before gluing. Replace front cover. Consider investing in a remote control keypad repair kit for seriously damaged rubber keypads.
Hope this help
