Question about Panasonic ET-RM100 Remote Control

Onkyo RC-649M remote

The volume button works but barely! You have to hit it a bunch of times before it will begin adjust the volume. All the other buttons work fine. It's as if we have over used this one button and it is wearing out.

    I have an identical (649) remote with an identical intermittent volume button issue. However, there are no screw to open the unit. I'm not wanting to force the remote apart and can't tell how to open it. Even taking the battery cover off and bats out, there are no visible (to my eye) screws, snaps, tabs, etc. Ideas?

    Onkyo RC-649M remote I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY REMOTE. THE UP VOLUME HAS BARELY WORKED FOR THE PAST 9 MONTHS. NOW THE DOWN VOLUME IS STARTING TO ACT UP. IF I TAP IT VERY LIGHTLY ON TOP BY THE ON/OFF BUTTON IT WILL WORK. IF I HOLD DOWN THE BUTTON SEVERAL TIMES FOR 20 SECONDS IT WILL WORK SOMETIMES. IT WORKS BEST WHEN I GET UP AND WALK OVER TO THE UNIT AND TURN IT UP!

Remove any screws you can see and pry the case open. you will see a rubber pad and a circuit board. Clean both with alcohol and dry. reassemble and it should be OK

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.

Popped open the cave (used a dull table knife to avoid damage) and once one spot was open, worked my way around.
Didn'r eally see any dirt, but used 90% Rubbing Alcohol and Q-Tips on the contacts on the rubbery button panel, Rubbed down the contacts on the board with a saturated paper towel.
Reassembled and ... Ta-Da! Works great!
Thanks everyone for the tips!!

Thanks for tip ! When opening remote with knife, do it gently, I pressed a little bit to strong near battery compartment, and I broke the thin part. Fortunately whole remote keeps together :-)

I had oily residue near volume controls. Any Idea where this residue comes from ? It can't be dirt from outside. It seems like rubber loosing some components when pressed often ( volume control is the most often used)

Cleaning oil with alcohol completely restored volum controls. Previously volume down didn't work at all.

Coyotedave's solution is right on! Had to use a knife blade to pry open the case but saw the oily residue immediately. Scrubbed with qtip & alcohol, reassembled and it works great now.

Sound is pinned at 100% output. Remote nor physical buttons on device are working.


If any of the buttons on the remote or tv work, then try going into the menu and turning the sound down manually.

My Toshiba remote control se-r0077 sometimes works to control the DVD player and other times it doesn't. I've tried new batteries and the problem still persist s


One of the best ways to check if an infra-red remote controller is working properly is to look at it using a camera. (a webcam or phone camera will work) The camera will see the infra red radiation as visible light. If the LED lights up (on camera) consistently when buttons are pressed, then it may not be the remote at fault, but rather the receiver in the DVD player. Most of the time though, it IS the remote control at fault, and these are usually easy to get working again.

Couple of things to check are:

1) the battery terminals...
Batteries can leak and corrode the terminals in the battery compartments. Signs of this include rust, green coloured contacts, or a crystalline deposit. If you see any of this then clean the contacts using metal cleaner or some methylated spirit and cue-tips.

2) Broken wires connecting battery terminals to the circuit board...
The soldering in some remotes can be rather poor, and wires can sometimes come loose, especially if a remote has been dropped or bashed about a bit. Unscrew the remote and check everything is connected properly


3) Dirt under the buttons...
This can prevent a button from making contact with the circuit board properly. Unscrew the controller and separate the rubber button pads from the circuit board check for dirt both underneath the pads AND on the metal contacts on the circuit board. Clean as required with methylated spirit and cue-tips and then reassemble.


Hope that helps!

None of the codes are working to set up my xfinity remote to adjust the volume. Is there a code that isn't listed?


No as the codes listed are for the settings in the remote if the code listed doesn't control the volume you need to get an updated newer remote with all the newer code sets
As you may find that one code controls the channel and another may control the volume and will be unable to use them at the same time

I've tried to set up a Bose remote to my TV and B Ray player. I can get the programme change, menu and the channel guide working but not the volume + or - .I've tried other codes as instructed.


Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.
