Bose remote RC-9. Up/down volume buttons hardly respond.

Really have to push extremely ******* up and down volume buttons to get any change in audio volume. All other buttons respond well. Battery is fine.

Your thoughts. Tks for any inputs....Eldon B

SOURCE: NEED TO PRESS REALLY HARD TO INCREASE VOLUME. EVERYTHING ELSE WORKS FINE

as time goes buy more of the keys will fail to work, pressing hard on the keys may do some damage to the circuit board inside. you need to remove the batteries any and small screws you can see then pry the two haves apart remove any screws that hold the circuit board to the top half and remove the circuit board to expose the bottom of the key pad you will see a black conductor painted on the bottom of each key button, use a Q-tip dipped in alcohol to clean the black conductor on all the keys then do the same thing to the contact points on the circuit board then rub a pencil eraser over the same contact points on the cicuit board and reclean with alcohol again.
This should fix the problem but it will happen again, and at some point even this won't fix the problem and logitech won't let you buy a new key pad, and that is the point I am at now and for that reason I won't buy another remote from them, I expect more than four years out of this product good luck.

SOURCE: Onkyo RC-649M remote

Coyotedave is right.  I had the same problem, followed his instructions (there are no screws, just gently pry it open), and I saw an oily residue on the up and down volume sections of the circuit board.  I used a Q-tip with alcohol on both the circuit board and underside of the rubber pad, put it back together, and it worked much, much better.  Thanks, Coyotedave.

SOURCE: Direct TV remote "tv input" button won't work with my Sony TV

I came across this looking for a similar solution for my Samsung TV, and I found the solution on ehow.com. Apparently after you program the remote for your TV you have to hold mute and select again until it flashes twice then put in 960 to make the remote control TV input too. Note you're remote should be in TV mode while you do this. It seems silly that the DirectTV guy wouldn't do this when programming the remote.

Hi Francis Jeremy Nicholas,
looks like your volume up key is stuck on your remote.
You have two choices. One is to open it yourself and clean the surface the button sits, or if its on warranty you can call them

My remote won't change from AUX to Tv and all of the buttons don't work on AUX except for the volume and mute, how do I get it back on tv? Thank you


Try to push the TV button that is lit red at top middle of remote for 5 seconds in stead of hitting input. In other words by holding the tv button down it might trigger it to respond better. Thanks Mike

My bose soundlink air does not respond to all commands on remote


Have that remote tested---I have and most shops have a tester---point remote at the tester and press any or all buttons and the tester reacts or not. Most common cause if only certain buttons do not work is liquid got inside.

Many digital cameras are able in a extremely dark room to respond in the same way when the remote is pointed at them and buttons pressed with a faint flash on the camera display screen---a go or no go test for every button.

Replace its infrared emission LED. It is weak, and so the signal out from the remote control too.

Bush lcd42f1080p100hz remote will not turn tv on


I had come home about a week ago and pushed the power button from my remote but my tv did not respond. So I just went to the front panel and pushed power but once the tv turned on, the volume was on full blast! I used the front panel volume decrease to get the volume down, but when I stopped pushing the button, the tv increased its volume to full blast again by itself! Naturally I just turned the tv off for a few moments. I tried the remote again, no response again, so I used the panel power button. The tv volume was still full blast when it turned on but after I decreased the volume it stayed this time. The picture is and has been perfectly fine and the tv was working fine. The next day the problem started all over and now once we turned it off from frustration of having to manually use the panel to change channels, it now will not turn on at all. I have changed batteries from my remote, reprogrammed my remote, pushed system reset several times, unplugged it for a while, bought a new surge charge, and even held the menu and device panel buttons for 10 sec and tried to turn the t.v. on again! What other options do I have or what may be the issue at hand and possible parts that may need to be replaced?? Thanks!!
