Re: I can't get the remote to work with my disc changer

I may be six years too late but I had this same problem. Remote worked with everything for over 10 years. Then I moved, set everything up and all the sudden the remote controls everything except the CD player. Take the batteries out, press every button twice and replace the batteries. Sounds ridiculous but it worked for me.
