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.

Need a manual for onkyo rc 427s


I don't have a separate manual for the Onkyo RC-427S. However there are several pages on this remote in the TX-DS484 receiver manual.

See page 30 of the manual here: http://www.intl.onkyo.com/downloads/manuals/pdf/tx-ds484_manual_e.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Philips TV 42pfl9664 remote control interferes Onkyo


HI it is entirely possible that the function you are using on your tv has the same command that your Onkyo uses for selection of GAME-mode. You should be able to prove this by using the Game-mode button on your Onkyo remote and it should affect your TV.
If Not then try shielding the remote receiver on your stereo with something thick ( a piece of paper is transparemt to IR - use a book or pillow) and see if the problem clears.
If this test proves correct, then the only solution is to see if you can change the remote command ID on the stereo and remote (if it supports it). The philips will most probably not have this feature. otherwise the only solution is to upgrade 1 device for a different brand.

Onkyo RC-729E remote for a DS-A3 iPod docking station. The remote seemed to work sometimes when I first got it. Few days later it does not work at all. Have tried changing batteries. Any other things...


The issue turned out to be that the iPod was not seated in the dock correctly. The adjustable back was adjusted too far forward so it was docked improperly. Correcting this corrected the remote issues. Everything works great now.

WON'T CHANGE CHANNELS ADJUST VOLUME OR SHUT OFF


If the volume buttons work when using the Radio, then the buttons on the Remote are fine.
Now if the volume on your TV is set to MAX and you can barely hear it.
The issue lies with your TV.. ()
Now if I understand correctly or if I am to assume you are using a Reviever.
If the reciever is used for all volumes... If this is the case.
I also assume the volume on the TV Speakers is set to off
Therefore when you use the Radio/DVD the volume control is using the Reciever volume.
and when you switch to TV it uses the TV volume thus the TV volume is not gonna work as well.
2 scenarios
1 The TV volume even at max is not giving you enough power to get the low receiver volume
2 the Receiver volume is at max and barely audible.. if this is the case just manualy adjust your TV volume to get it to a decent sound level.

Hard to explain but I know the 2 issues can be fixed.
