Bose sounddock remote control can't open the battery cover on the back

I need to replace the battery in the remote control. The backside has a 1" round section that has a vertical notch that is about 3/4" long, that looks like it would be easily opened by using a quarter and turning it. However, it doesn't turn (is seemingly glued shut).

    I can't get the cover off of my remote with a coin or anything. I'm afraid of "stripping" the groove. ing

Well, there really was nothing to it.
I let it dry out for the rest of the day and it went back to normal, thankfully.

SOURCE: BOSE SOUNDOCK CONNECTRO BROKE

You can't - the repair needs to be done centrally as the company would be at risk if it sold electrical parts to people who aren't qualified to repair such items. Therefore you need to call Bose and have this repaired, however it's quite a common fault so shouldn't cost too much.

SOURCE: Bose sounddock remote and ipod menu functions

Unfortunately I've never seen a universal remote that will control the extra functions of this. If it's the original SoundDock, you can only do: volume, power, play/pause, skip/scan. If this is a SoundDock II or SoundDock Portable, you can only control: volume, power, play/pause, skip/scan, and playlist up/ playlist down. Quite honestly, that's all I need to do on my SoundDock. I can't really read what's on my iPod from where I'm sitting in the first place. It may be possible to use a universal learning remote for this, but you'd have to teach commands from an apple remote as well as the bose remote, and the learning remote (+apple remote) may cost you over 1/3 the cost of the SoundDock. It also may not work perfectly. I hope this helps somewhat.

How to Troubleshoot Vertical Lines on an LCD TV Screen


<p>There are two prevalent formats for video programming: full screen and wide screen. LCD TVs are designed to show a wide screen picture to go with high-definition (HD) programming. When standard-definition (SD) programming is watched on an LCD HDTV in its default settings mode, there will be two vertical lines on the right and left sides of the picture. You need to go into your TV settings menu to troubleshoot this issue.<br /> jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); <span><br /></span> <span>Instructions</span> <ol> <li> 1 Press the "Menu" button on your remote control and open the "Picture Settings" sub-menu.<br /> </li> <li> 2 Select "View" from the list of options.<br /> </li> <li> 3 Choose a viewing mode that will eliminate the vertical lines. Select "Zoom" to crop the on-screen image to fit the screen. Select "Wide/Widescreen" to stretch the on-screen image to fit the screen, or select "Panoramic/Panorama" to stretch the sides of the onscreen image to fit the screen (recommended).<br /> </li></ol>

Our fan will not work. remote battery is fresh but fan will not operate. i believe the 4 notch positions in the remote are correct. are there notches in the fan? which way should the notches be facing?


In addition to the battery in the remote control, there is another one, inside the fan's motor cowling. If you didn't change that one too, that was the original problem.

Now as far as the pin notches on the hand held are concerned ... If you can remember their original position, return them to that and replace the other battery. If you can't recall them, the remote receiver where the other battery is located, behind the fan's motor cowling, will also have the same number of pin notches. Look at that one and match the hand held remote to those.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

While going through the setup procedure the Set 3 was accidentally changed to Set 1. Any activation of the Control setting only makes the unit go to "Set 1" It appears to be locked up at that...


You can try resetting the remote itself (this is necessary whenever the batteries are replaced). Remove the batteries, as if to replace them, press any key on remote (to clear its buffer) then reinsert them. Next step, since your unit is 'Set 1' (or remote command mode 1 - DVD1/RC1) - you could (on the remote) press 1 and OK/ENTER together - hold them for 10 seconds, then release.

This should restore the remote to the unit. If it doesn't, a workshop service may be required to reset the unit internally, but at a cost. Try the remote battery reset first (even try using new batteries).

The remote on my chrysler Town and Country is not working. What kind of battery do I need and how do I open the remote control to replace the battery?


using a small flat blade pocket type screwdriver find the notch on the housing of the fob. Place the screwdriver in the notch and pry the two half apart. Then remove the battery and replace with one of the same. You can pick one up almost anywhere small batteries are sold.

usually on the bottom of the mouse there is a little door with two notches or a single vertical notch which you need to carefully pry open and then insert your batteries as shown inside with + and - denotions.

Where can I order (on line) a battery for the MX 3000 remote?


I had several batteries that I ordered and they have been all purchased. Since I make no money on the batteries and can only order in bulk I will only order them if I can round up over 50 customers who need MX-3000 batteries. If you need one, please go to www.totalcontrolremotes.com and get in touch with us by putting "MX-3000 battery needed" and we will add you to the list. Either way wil let you know by mid-March 09 if and when the order will be placed for additional batteries.

Lcd screen connection


You can try to reseat the LCD video connector on the motherboard. Follow these steps:
1) Remove the AC power and Battery.
2) Open the LCD display all the way flat.
3) Pry up on the notch on the right side of the keyboard bezel. This is the plastic cover that has the power button on it.
4) Unplug the LCD cable and reseat it into the connector. This is the round black cable that has a little ground screw.
If this doesn’t resolve your problem then you probably need a new LCD display panel. To replace the LCD panel you have to remove the LCD section from the laptop and disassemble the LCD plastics to get to the panel.

If the TV supports it, you can go into service mode by press ing the following on the remote control:

062596 i

This will take you into a service menu. It also changes channel as you press the keys, so change to a used channel to get a picture back.

I am not familiar with this model, but the principles should be the same.

Using the remote control to navigate the menu, you are looking for "allignments", and from there "Vertical Amplitude" or V/AMP or VA or similar.

BE CAREFUL when making adjustments, as you can permanently damage the TV if you adjust any critical settings.

When making changes, make a note of the original setting so you can put it back if its not the right option. Also only make changes 1 notch at a time. It will be obvious when you have the correct option, so if nothing is happening after 2 or 3 notches, then put it back. This will minimise risk to the TV.

When you have finished, look for a "Save settings" option, if not just press standby to get out of the service menu.
