Moments after I posted my original question, I decided to go for it. Here's what I did.

Grasp the remote in two hands with the "Light" button sticking up and closest to your left hand. If you rotate the top of your left hand away from your body and the top of your right hand towards your body, flexing the remote, a small opening will appear to the right of the "Light" button. Get a small screwdriver in there and start working it around the perimeter of the remote. There are indents every inch or two around the remote. Be careful when separating the shells as the battery holders are integrated into the black part of the shell and can bend easily.

Once I got inside, I found that the LCD panel had become completely disconnected. I just needed to plug back in the LCD panel ribbon cable and the remote worked perfectly again.

Hi; Is there a simple way I can fix the back light of my MX-500?

There is no "bulb" in the unit. The MX-500 provides power to an electroluminiscent strip that runs from the top to the bottom of the remote. When power is applied, the whole strip glows inside.

Sounds like your light switch is going bad. Not sure what the life of the EL panel is but the part number is A015-J1

Remote programming

Definately know a great place for you. Total Control Remotes ( is a shop dedicated to providing clients with products and specializes in remote programming. I had an MX-3000 and an MX-6000 programmed for my client through Total Control Remotes. Not only did they give me a great deal on the remotes, but they programmed them great. My clients were happy. You don't have to buy the remote from them. Just visit the website, click Contact Us, and download a sheet in the downloads section describing your setup. Click submit, and you will receive an estimate quickly. In 2-3 days they can program the remote for you with awesome graphics. If you don't have a graphical remote they do a great job as well. I highly reccomend them. They are also home theater installers as well as home automation specialists. Give them a try!! Good Luck - Jim

Battery needed for MX-3000

My company carries a replacement battery for the MX3000.  The p/n for our replacement is PC036067-(V1 or V3 suffix)  You can reach me via email at and I will be happy to help you.
There are three important considerations concerning this battery.
1) Please note that the original version, supplied by Universal Remote p/n PC046067-H for the MX-3000, was discontinued by the battery manufacturer.  The PC046067-H had a typical capacity of 1800 mah.  My company has worked with the manufacturer to provide a replacement that has a typical capacity of 1400 mah but is identical in size to the original although slightly thinner.
2) Universal Remote used two different connectors on the PC046067-H with no deviation of p/n.  We carry our replacement with both connectors (our p/ns use suffix V1 and V3 to differentiate).  V1 is a simple white plug and V3 is different in that it has pressure tab built in.

Can't program mx-700 remote

Hello there,

I just had the same issue and solved it- its pretty easy as it turns out. check out

This is the previous model owners manual but it works. You'll want to program using the "learn" mode where you point the remotes at each other.
