Question about GE DGE100N DVD Player
Until recently the remote worked just fine. Now it does nothing. I've changed the batteries, still nothing. Is there something I can do? How do I purchase a remote for a GE DVD player? (model RCG110DA1)
It's quite possible that something got spilled into the remote. I've had this happen a bunch of times, & the remote goes dead! What I did was to take the remote apart by first separating the two halves with a knife & a lot of patience. The two halves are connected together by little clips of plastic all around the perimeter of the remote. Once you start to pry at it, you'll see little indentations ~1/8" - 1/4" wide, every here & there...these are the clip locations. Try to separate them without breaking them. Once you have the remote apart, there's four parts to it; the two halves that you just fought with, the circuit board, (PCB), & the rubber matt that contains the buttons. What you'll need to do is to clean the PCB thuroughly with rubbing alchohol, making sure to dry it completely. Do the same to the other parts, being carfull not to break anything but at the same time being sure to get them clean! Check that there aren't any broken wires or components, resolder anything that may need it. Once you're sure that everything is connected, clean & dry, reassemble the unit by first placing the rubber matt over the PCB, (line up the buttons & make sure it's in the right orientation. Then press the front cover onto the PCB/matt while holding the whole thing aligned, then put on the back cover & click it all together with the little clips. Be extra carefull that the battery connectors go into their proper slots. You may also want to bend the battery connectors alittle bit, in such a way as to make sure that the battery makes a good contact, don't go crazy, you don't want to break them! Once you have it all back together, put in some fresh batteries & try it out! If it still doesn't work....go buy a universal remote!!! Don't worry....be happy!! Good luck!!!
