Apple Remote Control

I've just bought an Apple Remote and have replaced the battery but it is still not working. I'm trying to get it to work with an iPod Nano 3rd generation. The manuals at Apple have not helped can you?

To my knowledge the Apple Remote does not connect directly to any iPod (this might be different for the iPhone or iPod touch). You need to have the Apple Universal Dock to use the remote control.

Try removing and reinstalling the batteries. Be sure there is no glass cabinet door between the remote and the Akai device. Try aiming the remote at an angle instead of straight on. Try installing new batteries

Universal remote codes

If your Technica TV asks for a four digit universal code; buy onw RCA RCR311B model remote control. The codes for Technica with this remote control are:
1004, 1006, 1009, 1010, 1013, 1025, 1035, 1045, 1051, 1060, 1061, 1075, 1078, 1103, 1122, 1123, 1205
If it asks for a five digit code, buy RCA RCR 312W model remote control
Codes for Technica with this remote control are:
10054, 10180, 10150, 10060, 10092, 10016, 10056
Otherwise, give me the Brand Name and Model Number of the remote control you have with you now, and let me search whether there is any code for Technica TV, with this remote control. OK.

To confirm if the remote control is working or not, aim the infrared emitter of the remote control directly to your cellphone camera, while pressing any button key you will see the flash of the infrared if the remote is in good condition. Click this LINK for more info.

If there's no flash of an infrared, the remote control is already faulty.
• Replaced the battery to ensure that the symptoms is not caused by low charged.
• Take it apart and check for bad solder joints especially on the battery terminal and on the infrared emitter.
• Ensure that there's no blockage on the infrared receiver in front of the TV.

If you've confirmed that the remote control is already faulty, click this LINK for the replacement.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

RF works when 2 feet or in cabinet

Could be one of two reasons:

1. Interference : Try to remove the Apple Airport Express from the room and see if this makes a difference. If it does, then that is your problem.

2. Weak battery: It is possible that the battery is growing weak and will need to be replaced. you can get one from logitech here:

Hope that helps!

At the bottom of the remote is a small button that can be pressed by a pin or pen. Press it and the battery will pop out. Replace the battery and you will have a working remote
