Question about Kenwood Audio Players & Recorders

3 Answers

Changing sound levels with the remote was the issue, now the on/off switch works erratically . New batteries have been installed with no difference. The remote will work for a while when you change the settings on the main front panel. Have you heard of these problems with the RC-R0811 Remote Control or is a issue with the main unit. Everything appears to be working on the main unit when opperating in the manual mode. Your thoughts would be appreciated.ThanksDave

Yes this is typical of remote contols, what you could do is take the remote apart and get to the circuit board thats in it, wash the rubber keypad in warm soapy water and dry, get a damp clean cloth and clean the contacts on the circuit board, dry properly and put it all back together.
I hope this works for you as i has for me a number of times

kind regards

You either have a faulty remote, which will need to be repaired/replaced, or there is a source of electromagnetic interference nearby, like from a powerful speaker, TV, etc..

    Of course, the IR sensor unit on the receiver may be faulty as well..

Try and unplug it for a while and plug it back in so it resets all of its settings..if that doesn't work the remote just might need to be replaced..

How do I reset the remote after changing the battery life.

To reset your unit, please verify that you are using a good-quality, standard alkaline battery such as Energizer or Rayovac. Then, follow the steps below.

1. Bring both the sensor and display unit indoors and remove at least one battery from each.
2. Make sure the A-B-C switch on both units match. Sometimes changing to a different channel can help.
3. Reinstall the battery in the outdoor sensor.

4. Reinstall the battery in the display unit.
5. Let the units sit within a couple feet of each other for about 20 minutes to gain a strong connection.

Both of my keyless entry remotes have stopped working, tried changing batteries and still nothing?

2 possible issues:

1) the new battery installed in the remote, still has a sticker on the bottom, preventing contact of battery to the board

2) the solder has come loose on the under side of the board, on the clip which holds/houses the battery, also giving lack of contact.

Laser level problem

I had the same issue. The laser would only turn on intermittently and mostly not turn on at all. Since the green led would come on for 2 seconds when you first turn the rotary laser unit on (as per the user manual) I decided that the problem was probably with the remote. I took it apart (4 screws) and cleaned the corrosion off of the battery contacts on the slider switch and the two plates that the switch sliders make contact with. I also bent the two thin slider contacts so that they would contact the corresponding plates on the circuit board with a little more pressure. Put it back together and that seemed to fix it.

Ceiling fan remote control doesn't work

Sounds like you have an add-on remote. Try changing the frequency in the receiver & transmitter. If that doesn't work you probably need a new receiver.

Toshiba 32a33. I'll be watching tv and the volume bar shows goes down to 0 (no sound) when it is in this mode the remote control will not work on the volume, you can get up and manually up the volume...

1st check to see if your remote volume down button is stuck. 2nd do you have wireless internet (router) or any other wireless devices phones,ceiling fans, another Toshiba remote, if so try unplugging them (or remove the batteries if it's a remote) while it's changing the volume one at a time. If a different device makes it stop try changing the channel on it. Also make sure the t.v doesn't have a mind of its own and remove the batteries out of the t.v remote, let it ride for a couple days if it happens without the remote being in play then you know your t.v is acting strange, if it stops then starts back up when you start using the remote again then you know your dealing with a remote issue. Sometimes Freq.'s merge causing remotes/wireless devices to conflict with each other.

Hi there,

This issue is called no sync issue. Which means there is no synchronisation between your computer and the router.

Try Changing the Microfilter
swap the Leds of the cabel which is connected between the router and the computer.
Call your internet service provider if issue is not fixed.

If you want everything to work as before you will need a switch with exactly the same wire set-up and then you can just wire it in like before. Batteries ? Can you tell if the remote actually works ? If you use a different switch you will have to figure out how to wire it. It should/may come with a simple schematic for wiring purposes. Basically it goes like this....blk..incoming ..ground...then you have the power to the motor for the speeds these may be assorted colors many times higher speeds will be darker and slower speeds may be lighter in color. Look at the old switch, how many wires were connected to the motor.? A meter can be used to find out which wire power will go out of in a certain switch positiion. Best solution take the switch with you when you find a store that sells switches so it can be matched.

Samsung TV remote. I noticed today my TV remote wasn't working. I changed the batteries and noticed there had been some leakage from the AAA batteries. Since changing the batteries the 8 buttons on the top...

Giving you some hints. Battery leakage is one enemy of tv control and other remote control. They can corrode your battery spring contact, give contact bridges with neighboring tracks that can cause erratic behavior of your remote.

Some repairs can be done but doesn't guarantee success. First is try to clean the corrosion on battery contact = no power usually. Erratic behavior cause by contact bridging = battery leak residues.

Opening a remote control. Some have screws on its small foot. Covered by a rubber or sticker. Some are notch clip in strategic location you have to fry that one by one, opening first on its weakest side. In some don't want to be open.

Cleaning the board by a soft eraser is one way. After you open the remote. Commonly the button area where contact takes place.

If the first procedure and cleaning doesn't work. Buy new remote or use universal remote controller.
