Digitalstream DTV remote broken

Are there any remote controls that can replace a broken remote for the product mentioned above? It appears to be a bad battery contact (Possibly dropped too many times).

    Digital Stream HD converter box's remote no longer works. The LED does output a signal, verified by pointing at a camcorder and observing it flicker, and another remote in another room does operate the box, but this one doesn't. Batteries have been replaced, it simply stopped while "surfing", none of the buttons do anything. I'd like to just find the remote itself, without buying another converter box.

Found on the manufacturar's site:

Can I use my Universal Remote Control to operate the converter box?
Yes, follow the guidelines below for the different Universal Remotes and Converter Boxes sold at RadioShack.
Digital Stream Digital to Analog Converter Box (Model DTX9900, SKU 15-149) 

If the date code on your model is April 2008 (04A08) or later, the following universal remotes from RadioShack will work, with the exceptions as listed below.

1. EPG is the Guide button.
2. PREV is the Last button.

clean contacts battery very well with isopropyl alcohol .
test the power of battery and replace put some from maximun energy.
3) see if there are some power loose or colder joint and resolder you must open the remote control.
However make test with the photo attched use camera, or cell and remote control, the LED must be on from remote control otherwise proceed with the steps before mentioned337cdc73-b1b7-4f0b-a2bb-46bf9a5cf9b4.jpg

1) tightt the spring contacts batteries with pliers for better contact
2) open the remote and clean the keypads from dirty, oxide with contacts cleaner.
3) resoldert the wires connector contact batteries.

5 possible causes-
1) dirty controls- you can clean them up with a shot of LPS1 through the vent of the control or from the gap under the terminals and work the control back and forth.
2) dirty tube contacts, Wipe the tube pins with a product named "Rail Zip" from a hobby shop.
3) dirty jacks- Use the LPS1 on the jack and the plug and plug the jack in a few times to clear the contact points.
4) cold solder joint on any of those items- reflow solder with a dab of new and make sure the contact is fully flowed.
5-broken wire- at any of those places mentioned.

While there is a remote chance you are developing static electricity and it is discharging into the instrument and getting amplified, if the ground connections are sound- that should not happen.

If it continues to make noise- check the guitar itself for the same issues of dirty contacts, dirty controls, bad solder connections, and broken wires as described for the amp.

I have a Bose Wave music system model No AWRCC6, on which the volume control switch and the off switch of the remote does not work. The remaining features on the remote appear to be working correctly. The...

Possible this is poor contact by the button battery with the contacts.I am also having a similar problem, but if I squeeze the remote case just above the set of alarm buttons (this is over the battery) my on/off button tends to work as well as other buttons near the top of the remote. (Certainly is annoying that the radio is completely useless without the remote.)

"Batteries corroded"? That would seem to answer all the questions implicit in your post. Electrical contacts don't fare well from having batteries corrode on them. Clean the contacts and replace the batteries.

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
They also sell replacement remotes.

Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remotes", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

What product?

Mx3000 does not charge when in cradle. nothing

I agree with ceocass, however if you find that the contacts are clean and you have made certain that the charging cradle is plugged in you may simply need to replace the battery.
Please note that the replacement batteries for the MX3000 Universal Remote Control, p/n's Powercard PC046067-H & PC036067V3 have been discontinued. now carries an alternative battery, p/n PL056067V3 which is a 2,100 mAh typical capacity battery that can be used as a replacement.
Please confirm that the connector type is the same as your battery prior to placing your order. We only carry this battery with the Version 3 connector which has a built in pressure release tab.

Remote justs stops working....changed batteries and still does nothing

Test the remote using a camera on a mobile phone: access the camera function on the mobile phone, point the remote's transmitter (front end) towards the camera lens. Observe the mobile's display while pressing buttons on the remote.

If the remote works, you should see a blinking spot on the display of the mobile phone each time you press a button on the remote - this is the light emitting diode inside the remote which can not be seen with our naked eyes because it is emitting infrared light, but the camera on the mobile phone is able to convert the infrared into visible light so you can see the flashes when you observe the remote emitter through the mobile's camera.

When you test the remote, you will probably notice one of the following types of behaviour:

1. the emitter blinks when you press ANY of the buttons on the remote that you normally use to control the unit - the remote is functional and there is a problem elsewhere

2. the emitter blinks only with some of the buttons that are normally being used - the buttons that should work, but do not, most probably have dirty or worn out contacts

3. the emitter does NOT blink no matter which button is pressed - there is a fault inside the remote


So, if you can see the flashes, the remote is functional, but the unit you control with it does not respond.

There can be several causes for that:

--- the remote is not programmed with the right code (only for universal remotes, if the remote is original and it came with the unit, then this most likely isn't the case).

--- there is a problem with the unit that is being controlled with the remote. Some possibilities are a bad infrared receiving sensor, bad solder joints on the sensor, a problem with the sensor decoder or other components associated to the decoder, bad power supply to the sensor or/and decoder, a problem elsewhere in the unit).


If you see flashes only with some butons pressed, but not with all of the buttons that are normally used, then some of the buttons may either have dirty contact points or the contact points are worn out.
This would require either cleaning the rubber keypad of the remote and the underlying circuit board with some alcohol and cottonwool, but if that doesn't do any good this means that the rubber pad contacts are worn out (they can be renewed with the remote repair liquid kit), an alternative is to replace the rubber keypad or the entire remote.


If there are no flashes whatsoever, no matter what button you press, then there is actually a problem with the remote. Some possible problems and solutions are:

- a dirty battery connector contact (clean the contact)

- a broken wire from the remote's battery connector to the circuit board, either at the connector side or at the circuit board (test with an ohm meter or a continuity tester, resolder or replace the wire or replace the connector, if and as necessary)

- a bad component on the remote's circuit board - there are not many, a capacitor, an IC (chip), a quartz resonator, an infrared emitting diode, maybe a few resistors and diodes (see or test if any components are damaged or burnt out and replace if necessary - this requires some knowledge about electronics and some measuring equipment, an universal multimeter for the least)

- a bad solder joint on any of the above mentioned components (resolder bad joints if you find any)


Anyway, the most common problems with remotes that i've encountered so far were: bad solder joints on the pins of the infrared emitter and sometimes on other components, broken connection wires and dirty or worn out button contacts. Rarely, if ever, do i recall seeing an actually burnt out or damaged component - this stuff operates on a battery voltage which is somewhere between 3 and 9 volts so it would take some serious short circuiting or battery spillage to damage the components (anyway, spilled battery liquid or other sour liquids can be able to do that and can also severely damage the circuit board leads but this often means that the remote is forever gone).

I must apologize for this lenghty disclosure, i hope it helps somewhat.
