Question about Televison & Video
I own a kenwood VRS - 7100 audio-video control system with a kenwood DVF-3080 DVD player. I have had the unit for several years and now the remote control that came with the system does not work. I have put new batteries in and the remote does work controling the DVD player but not the sound or and of the control system functions.
SOURCE: Want to use just one remote!
This really is a question that Kenwood would have to answer and their phone number is 1-800-536-9663. Some remotes will communicate with the dish receiver but there are far to many manufacturers for me to be able to tell you who they are and their codes. It is much better if you go directly to the source yourself.
Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can further assist you.

One of the best ways to check if an infra-red remote controller is working properly is to look at it using a camera. (a webcam or phone camera will work) The camera will see the infra red radiation as visible light. If the LED lights up (on camera) consistently when buttons are pressed, then it may not be the remote at fault, but rather the receiver in the DVD player. Most of the time though, it IS the remote control at fault, and these are usually easy to get working again.
Couple of things to check are:
1) the battery terminals...
Batteries can leak and corrode the terminals in the battery compartments. Signs of this include rust, green coloured contacts, or a crystalline deposit. If you see any of this then clean the contacts using metal cleaner or some methylated spirit and cue-tips.
2) Broken wires connecting battery terminals to the circuit board...
The soldering in some remotes can be rather poor, and wires can sometimes come loose, especially if a remote has been dropped or bashed about a bit. Unscrew the remote and check everything is connected properly
3) Dirt under the buttons...
This can prevent a button from making contact with the circuit board properly. Unscrew the controller and separate the rubber button pads from the circuit board check for dirt both underneath the pads AND on the metal contacts on the circuit board. Clean as required with methylated spirit and cue-tips and then reassemble.
Hope that helps!
