I spilled coffee on the remote. Now it won't work

Open the remote control and clean it. Never insert batteries in this wet condition. It will make thing worse. If you wish to know more about how to clean a remote control, check this link.

Proscan tv turns off with remote when pushing the volume or mute button

There are some push buttons on your remote control handset is internally shorting with each other. The only way to retify it is either by cleaning the internal parts of your present remote control or buying a new one.
To clean the remote control, you have to open it. Most of the remote controls are slip lock type fittings, and can be opened with the help of a small knife, inserting between the slits of upper and lower cabin pieces. Put the knife at the side slits, and gently lift without breaking its cabin of locks. Some models will have one or tw screws, additional to these lock fits. Remove batterise before opening it, and check if there is any screw in the battery compartment.
On opening, you can see a printed circuit board, with 4 or 5 components. Clean the surface of that board [tuching face of kepad], with a smooth cotton cloath piece, dipped in pure alcohol or medecial quality turpentine. Never use any strong solvents like thinner or petrol, as they will damage the plastic and rubber parts. Clean the carbon rubber pads of the touch pad also. Dry it well before reassambling.
After these, your remote should work fine. If not, you have to buy an other, and your remote is irreparable. OK.

Just open the remote control without damaging its case. In some remote controls, there may ba onw or two fixing scrrews inside the battery compartment. Look ofr it if it is there, if not you can open it with any sharp instrument like a knife or so, by put it in betweedn the **** between the to case parts at its side. Hold it upside down and open. There will be a strip wire that connects the LCD display and the main board of the remote control. In some remote controls this strip wire will be a replaceable one. In some others it will be pressed either side to board and display. If the second said type is yours, it can't be repaired. If it of the first said type, the wire can be replacable, and can be bought from electronic spare part shops. Its conductors are of carbob track type, not made up of metal wire. During the fall, there is a chance to make these conductors to break. There is only back light LED is working now. Sometimes the remote may be also working, but you can't see its doings on diplay. Check it. As you said that the battery inside it is deformed durring the fall, as from that I understands that the hit got by the remote control during the fall was strong. Anyway open it and check these. OK

You may open it by using a screwdriver thru slots all over the perimeter of remote. I had the same problem, but cleaning did not solve the problem - some buttons are still not working. There is some problem with a magnet inside the button. It has stopped transmitting an electric signal when a button touched an electric plate.

The remote for my coby-925B system quit working. I changed the batteries 3 times. No luck. Any ideas?

The problem may not be the remote control. There's always a chance the remote sensor on the stereo isn't working. It's hard to tell if the remote is transmitting since it uses infrared light. This site sells a test card that glows when the remote signal hits it, as well as being a possible source if your remote is bad. If you take the remote to a TV or electronics service shop in your area, they might be able to check the remote for you. You can also see the remote light up if you view it through a camcorder viewfinder (the camcorder picks up the infrared so you can see it).

If the remote control is transmitting, the receiver sensor is probably replaceable. There are only a few types used. A service shop could check to see if the sensor is responding and should be able to replace it if it's bad.

If the remote control isn't transmitting, it may be due to bad connections. They are pretty common, especially since remotes frequently get dropped or bounced around. Many times they are hard to open without damaging the case (remotes are seldom designed to be serviced), but it is possible to open them to check. Each remote has a crystal inside (a small rectangular part with two wire leads), and it's common for a lead to break if the remote has been dropped or handled roughly.

Usually it's not worth the time and effort to try repairing the remote if you can find a replacement. You can try contacting Coby to see if they sell replacements, or try any of the many online vendors.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

Battery cover on back is stuck on. no way to get open without breaking it

Press on it with both thumbs in the depressed area and push down and toward the end.  There is a small latch behind the depressed area.  By pushing down as well as toward the end of the unit you should be able to get the latch to release and the cover will slide toward the end.
