Connect the RED probe(+) to the Pointed side of the battery and the other probe(-) to the other side of the battery.
Also try these simple trick to find out your remote control working or not....
Point the remote control towards the Camera of a Mobile Camera phone,with the camera on. While pressing remote, we can see a light (Infra Red) coming from its IR LED through the Mobile Camera if the Remote is working.

I have a MX-350 universal remote and when I replace the batteries, it won't come out of "TEST" mode.

Could be a bad ground. Run a different ground wire and then try or sometimes the bulb housing is the ground, and the housing is not screwed in proper or it lost its ground somehow .

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, check the sites linked here. Before doing anything, check the battery contacts at the battery compartment of the remote control, for any rust or dust accumulated, which prevents a good battery contact. Clean the well before testing.
Pull up previous posts by its left sidebar, or type in the brand name and model number to of your set, to its search box, and press 'Enter' or view it in Mosaic / Timeslide option.

My universal remote won't program anything the light stays solid red the whole time no matter what I do

Try removing batteries. Weak batteries might lock up the remote. Also check to see if the batteries were put in properly polarity wise. If not battery problem, the unit might be shorted out internally and that is a hard fix unless you are willing to open it and clean contacts.. otherwise just go out and buy a new universal remote...they are cheap!

Remote freezes in devices position and will not return to activities position

Remove the battery and wait for 30 seconds. Reinstall the battery and test. If the problem happens often, try to re-download the programming. Log into your account and click "Update Remote".

Remote does not work

Be sure that the "new" battery is good by testing the battery or taking it to a radio shack store where the clerk will test it for you.

there is no reswet button. Fortunately, a new remote, called a universal remote will serve you well. These are available at radio shack, walmart, etc.

My remote's batteries fell out & it stopped working.

Check and make sure that the batteries are getting full contact on each end...often when an electronic device falls and actually forces the batteries out on impact, the contact points are spread apart and prevents full contact on both ends of the battery(s). You can lightly bend the contacts in the remote just slightly... Just enough to get a full contact. If it has springs then assume that there is already full contact there. Secondly if you think you have full contact with the batteries then the next thing is that it may have some internal damage to the remote. (which can be ALOT of different problems) This is a simple solution possibility..Otherwise try a new set of batteries. If its still a no-go then it will require a replacement unless you know how to fix circuit boards.
