Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL52XBR2 Television
My Sony Bravia's remote started loosing it's functions 3 months ago when the #5 stopped working; later the volume control went out; then the channel control; next the #2 and now the guide button. I have tried replacing the batteries and cleaning the glass receiving area but it still doesn't work. I assume it's a bad remote. Any hints?
You can repair some of these remotes. Usually the hard part is getting the cover off. they are not really made to be serviced. The problem with most all remotes that start doing what you describe is either wear or something spilled on it. You can fix it. Sony remotes may have 1 screw in the battery compartment. remove it and try sliding the front and back. If that dosen't work try prying from one side with a sharp edege. If you do manage to get it open take the PC board out. You will see a rubber like membrane that lays against the board. Try cleaning that with a qtip and rubbing alcahol. Then clean the PC board the same way especially where the pads of rubber contact the board. Make sure it's completely dry and snap it back together. If it works better good, if not the pads are to worn and you just have to replace. Good Luck.

My remote (RM-GD007) had a sticking volume control button. The way to remove the cover on this model is to use a sharp 3/4" wood working chisel. Place the remote face down on a bench and use the chisel to prise open the case along each of the sides (you will see a line where the front cover overlaps the back - work the chisel in to separate them. Once open, the rubber membrane can be cleaned with alcohol. My unit had a build up a grease like substance which was causing the keys to stick. Not sure where this came from. Good luck !
