There may be hidden screws on it. Look under any lables or rubber feet. You may also need to pry it apart along it's middle longways.

Remote control

Remotes fail for about 4 different reasons and most can usually be fixed:

1. batteries bad or cause rust etc on contacts, or contacts do not hold batteries tight.

2. Liquid sometimes gets spilled on front where the buttons are--it is a one piece mat and if liquid gets under the buttons do not work or some do not work.

3. Remote gets dropped--usually this breaks a connection or part loose from the circuit board inside.

4. Remote not programmed for unit being used on.

different approach for each---which describes your problem?

The remote can be tested by any shop to see if sending a signal or not.

The remote will not work


First thing to do is to check if the remote really don't work. Here's a very simple way to do that: If you have a digital camera or a mobile phone with a camera, start the camera and point the remote control to the lens. Push a button on the remote and look on the screen of the camera/mobile phone. If the remote control works, the camera will be able to show the IR beam on it's screen.

If no light beam is coming from the remote control, it will be very easy to make it working again. Please remove battery, open the case of the remote by unscrew (if present) any screw, and, using a plastic card open carefully the case. Now please take every part and simply wash it with dish washing liquid or liquid soap and warm water. Now, be sure everything is very good dryied, best with a hair dryer, put all parts carefully togheter and ...that's it.

Please let me know if it helped.

Good luck!

When camera is turned on the lens won't open, message comes up lens error will shut down automatically

Was the unit dropped or were any liquids messed onto the lens assembly previously ?
If dropped (particularly if the lens was open) the lens drive mechanism might well have suffered damage.
If liquids, particularly ones containing sugar, were accidently messed onto the lens assembly, then the sugar becomes sticky as the liquid dries, effectively glueing the mechanism in place.

My volume button is not working on my harmony 890. What is the fix?

hope you can do this at home, try to open your remote control, remove all screws, your need thiner, liquid solution, and cotton wool, drop some thiner on cotton wool and wipe it on board, near volume track, and wipe it very gently, make sure not to overflow the cottonwool with thiner, now after doing this close the remote control, and check if it does work. remote controls are very rare in repiars, this is basic way to make it work, hope it work, if not then try to get the second hand 1...wish you best in this process

My convergence on my Toshiba 57'' is out of whack. Only the Blue is an issue where I am unable to repair through the Convegence setting menu. I love the TV and would like to fix this myself without...

did you try to set the convergence adjustment on the remote control? there is a pattern (crosshatch) which you can adjust the convergence of RGB guns,If it cannot be done on earth as it is an heaven... you must open the back cover and look at the liquid coolant at blue gun, that liquid acts as a coolant at the same time as lens, check the level of liquid, usually it leaks and need a repair kit for replacement,make sure not to drop the coolant on the board that's conductor and corrosive.

Milk spilled on tv remote controller

Remove batteries from remote, to avoid further damage caused from liquid on powered circuits.
Allow the remote with the cover opened to dry for few days. Ideally the remote should be disassembled and the internal parts treated with cleaning solution, or 70% isopropyl alcohol and water. If you do not want to disassemble just let it there to dry up.

If the remote does not work after that , it means that the liquid had damaged circuits.

In that case get a replacement remote.
