Question about Philips PM4S Remote Control
The remote for my DVD/Surround sound fell in between the sides of the couch. It was missing for months. When we finally found it, it doesn't work. We replaced the batteries, but it didn't help. The old batteries had not leaked or corroded. I suspect that the buttons had been held in the pushed-in position all that time. Is there any way to fix it? The product number is rc19245008/01. Thanks.

Greetings....Well the first thing I want you to do...since you said that the batteries had no corrosion or leakage is to check the battery contact terminals(where the batteries make contact) for the slightest sign of rust or oxidation..Sometimes moisture will form inside of the cover especially stuck between couch cushions with limited air circulation..if you have the slightest oxidation..clean them with a small piece of extra fine sandpaper..install a different set of batteries.If this doesn't work...the infared transmitter(eye) may have burned out during the time the buttons were pushed.Usually...some functions on a bad remote may work while others may not....Since the remote may be totally dead...you may want get a replacement.If you want to get an exact replacement...you can go to www.remotes.com .They can get a high percentage of original remotes for most devices....I hope this was helpful...PEACE...
