  1. Maybe worth a shot, carefully thou
  2. Remove 2 * screws under battery cover
  3. front of remote: slide down the bottom cover (where rec, pause, etc option is)
  4. push both egdes of the slide area outwards, to totally remove this slide cover
  5. further more, now push both the above slide edges even more .. till bottom of (front face) cover loosens up. Whilst lifting this only a little at a time ...
  6. Gently remove /loosens only lower ends (only at this stage) of the 2 silver edge stripes... by .. lifting up (away from face of remote) ..whilst .. moving them outwards. ** i.e up, then outwards) Do not remove top edge of silver tip yet
  7. start separating left n right egdes with sharp flat point from under silver side strip, " digging" downwards towards bottom of remote
  8. At this point, the top edge of remote may be separated, but not necessary.. if you can pull insides out from bottom, PREFFERED OR .. can be done by:
  9. using flat edge - loosen/pry 1cm from corner on top tip of edge left n right digging downwards n outwards towards bottom of remote .. enough gap to use a little pressure if you must
  10. then if feasible, separate remote face .. also 1cm from right n left corner alongst each side from top corner
  11. .. now can remove silver side strip completey.
  12. Hope this helps, cheers

    Thanks Jason, dried out and cleaned with alcohol but did not work as carbon pad worn out. REpaired by cleaning black contact with alcohol, and glued small patches of aluminium foil using Liquid Nails. Worked very well.

SOURCE: My Sony Bravia remote control is slowly loosing it's functions.

You can repair some of these remotes. Usually the hard part is getting the cover off. they are not really made to be serviced. The problem with most all remotes that start doing what you describe is either wear or something spilled on it. You can fix it. Sony remotes may have 1 screw in the battery compartment. remove it and try sliding the front and back. If that dosen't work try prying from one side with a sharp edege. If you do manage to get it open take the PC board out. You will see a rubber like membrane that lays against the board. Try cleaning that with a qtip and rubbing alcahol. Then clean the PC board the same way especially where the pads of rubber contact the board. Make sure it's completely dry and snap it back together. If it works better good, if not the pads are to worn and you just have to replace. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Dear sir, I have a Original

Most of the remotes can be opened and cleaned but with care. These remote boxes are self fitting plastics locks and so you need to use a thin blunt knife to wedge open the sides, like removing the car tyre from the rim.
once open you can use a remote control repair kit to clean or form the carbon contact points.
please find tips from the link below:

Sony RM-Y186 remote will not work what is wrong with it?


Hi!
1. don't press the buttons like a hardcore boxer :)
2. disassemble the remote control. No big deal. It has a plastic housing the buttons are on a plastic/rubber sheet. (remove batteries first)
3. clean the plastic/rubber sheet where the buttons are both on top and rear side. Take some clean petrol from the groceries next corner, and clean the black pads on the bottom of the buttons + also on the circuit sheet you'll find inside the remote control.
4. Put everything together and...

... TADAAA! It works again. :-)

As all other buttons works properly except Volum Dn, the problem is with the remote control itself. Clean the remote control and check. To clean it, you have to open the remote control. If it too doesn't help you, buy one original remote control from the authorized service center for Sony. No universal remote control will go properly with Sony TVs. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

How do you Open Sony rm-yd059


SONY RM-YD059 remote is easier to disassemble then other models. Slide battery cover open 1 inch or half open. Using a plastic toothpick or similar device pop cover using the groove. There are three sliding locks on each side. You will now see six screws holding halves together - remove. There are six more clips holding remote together. Starting at the top working towards the bottom, there are three per side, location of clips at red and blue buttons, at between 4&7 and 6&9 rows, and finally at muting and jump buttons. Voila - Happy cleaning. Note: directional ring is keyed with thin and fat tabs, fat tabs are positioned towards the bottom.

Disassemble or open the remote control Sony RM-YD035


if Sony Remote RM-YD035 does not change channels or turn off TV, the buttons got dirty coz those are you most used buttons.


You can repair Sony Remote RM-YD035 yourself. It's quite easy and fast, with perfect result!


To disassemble or open the remote control Sony RM-YD035, first remove a single screw in the battery compartment. Then use a very thin but strong screwdriver and insert it between top cover and the body at the back part of the battery compartment. Move the screwdriver up and down and slowly move it to the left and to the right and continue along the perimeter. Use two or three such screwdrivers and in 2-4 minutes the top cover plate with buttons will separate from the body/bottom/casing.

Clean both parts thoroughly. And then gently put them back together in the opposite order. The parts will snap closing.

You are done.

Mine is now working perfectly

Remote control


You need to resurface the contacts. Here's how you do it:
First, disassemble the remote. Clean the black foil pads on the circuit board with rubbing alcohol. Now take a #2 pencil and a razor and shave the graphite from the "lead" onto a piece of paper (hold the blade perpendicular to the lead, this results in a finer powder). Now that you have a nice pile of powdered graphite, blot a Q-Tip into it to saturate the cotton with graphite. Rub the graphite onto the little black pads on the rubber button membrane, and be sure to apply more graphite to the Q-Tip every 2 to 3 buttons. Blow off any excess graphite. reassemble remote and test.
