DVD player remote is dead

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!!!

When I play DVD's my tv screen gets a rectangle box on it, the VHS is fine, it's just the DVD player.


Yes! you are right, this almost sounds like a captions problem, check the DVD/VCR Combo menu, if it has captions turn it off using your remote.

To make sure the remote works or not. See if it blinks if you shoot the pointy end to a mobile phone in camera mode. If it's working fine there, some other issue. At least you know if it's a battery thing.

Sylvania (SRD3900) DVD Player / VCR Combo i can't seem to plug in the red/white/yellow cables into the right places directly to my old toshiba tv to play either tapes or dvds. can you instruct me? thanks.


Greetings - It's very simple so I'll show you how and then I think it may be another problem (nothing broken).

You need to plug the corresponding color cables into to outputs on your player I've circled above and then into the corresponding inputs on the TV. You've probably done this correctly.
PLUS - You have to, using the remote for the player, set the source to either DVD or VCR and then you have to, finally, on your TV set the input (with the remote) to what is called probably VIDEO or VIDEO1. If there is still nothing on the screen keep (with the DVD or Tape playing) hitting the TV remote input button until you see an image or you've come around to where you started.

Unless something is broken (unlikely) you should be able to watch DVD's or Tapes depending on what input you select on the player.

If it's not working you've somehow missed a step or the Video input on the TV is called something else. If that happens come back here and give the player AND TV brand/model info and someone will be able resolve your problem.

Good Luck and thanks for using Fix Ya.

My remote control simply stopped working altogether. I changed batteries 3 times(and verified the batteries were good). The dvd/vcr controls on the player itself function properly. I cleaned the remote...


If it is a universal remote not branded to the tv and the batteries went dead or are out for too long then the remote lost the codes and needs to be reprogramed!

Coby 626 DVD Player Remote Not Working


I have a COBY DVD player TF-DVD7005 that hadn't been used in a while. When I charged the battery and the light went from red to green, nothing happens when I push play and the DVD doesn't spin. Could the battery be dead despite the green light and where would I get a new one?
