Question about Televison & Video
I have a rx v561 Yamaha amp whose remote has volume buttons that do not work. the other buttons work and i have opened it and cleaned the rubber pad several times (water, soap and water, rubbing alcohol) i have cleaned the circuit board contacts for those buttons with rubbing alcohol. It kinda makes sense that the volume buttons would wear out first. the piece of rubber that make the connections must be coated with a conductive substance. maybe it wore off? It does work if you remove the front cover and the rubber part, insert the batteries and short out the contacts for those buttons. i think i need a new remote... since i give up on repairing the remote properly, (but i do need a new one) for a temporary fix i cut those buttons off of the rubber part and put it back together. I operate my volume control by inserting any piece of metal that is near me like a screwdriver or the handle of a fork...
Try a piece of alum. foil next time before you cut the buttons out---may still work with clear tape over it.

There are a total of SIX screws. You have already found two in the battery compartment. There are four more under the GREY panel on the front of the remote. That grey panel pries out; there are two tabs on the lower sides and one on the top, above the > button, that hold it in. Should not be hard to get it out to reveal the four screws. Take them all out, and the remove easily pries apart for service access.

SOURCE: remote control
I had the same problem. The problem is strange and seems to be with the receiver in the TV and not the remote control. The reason I say this is that when this first happened my Samsung brand DVD could actually control the TV. This then also failed, but still works fine with the DVD player.
Anyway there is an even more bizarre fix to all this......
- Remove the batteries from your TV remote. - Press and hold the red (ON/OFF) button for at least 1 min. - Replace the batteries and hey presto!!
I know seems far fetched but I found it on the Samsung website and it does work.

Open the remote, look at the bottom of the rubber button pad and locate black graphite circle under the volume button. (When you press a button graphite makes contact on a circut board). The usual problem is dirt, take some pure alcohol and clean both black rubber circle and the contact board with some cotton sticks or similar. Dry the remote and try it.
It should help, but if you're unlucky it might stop working again and you have to repeat the process from time to time... Good luck

SOURCE: How do I remove the
The two screws inside the battery compartment would not really hold the case together. Try using two flat screwdrivers working on the side of the remote control; one levered open a bit and the other slipped in further and levered more to split it open. I think a blunt knife may also do the job; but never a sharp one because it will be too dangerous.
