Question about Panasonic ET-RM100 Remote Control
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.
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.
