Question about Bose Televison & Video
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
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.

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.

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.
