Re: I don't know the model of my remote but

What source/cable/Sat/etc are you using? Are there stations on those numbers? If so, do you have a VCR powered up that is connected to all this. That could be where you're losing your signal....accordianman

The remote control should be checked for its infrared emission. If you wish to get more details, visit this site. Pull up older posts there. One among it has detail description about how to check and repair or clean a remote control. Check the site with patience. I'm sure that you will get all details you wants to know.

I have a universal remote. The power comes on, but I can't get it to work. It used to work until I spilled water on it. I know... Red flag. :) buuut I cleaned it up fast and like I said power still co

Since your remote is responding, you may want to check if it is producing an IR signal. To do this, take a picture of the remote when someone else presses a button. (Have the other person point the remote at the camera lens. With a digital camera (cell phone or other camera), if the remote is producing an IR signal, the resulting picture will show a flare of light.) Taking pictures of several different button presses may indicate which functions are compromised. You can try resetting the codes for the different devices the remote controls.

Unfortunately, you may need to replace your remote with a new one. I've never had much luck cleaning the contacts after they were damaged.

In the future, if you spill water on the remote, first remove the batteries. Then dry the bulk of the water off of the unit. To finish drying the water from the contacts inside, fill a bowl or other container large enough to hold the remote with some uncooked rice. Place your remote (with the battery compartment open) into the rice and leave it there; then cover the bowl. You can rotate the remote in the rice at intervals but leave it in the rice for several days. (The drying process can take a week.) Do not replace the batteries until the remote is completely dry.

Alternatively, get one of the cell phone drying bags and use that to dry the remote. It will still take several days to get all of the moisture out of the unit.

I hope this helps.

I bought a RCA remote and i don`t know how to used

Google the name and model of the remote and put instructions behind it....If you don't know the model, it may be under the battery lid (either inside or on the lid itself). If its not there, you can go to google images and type in rca universal remote and find one that looks like yours and it will tell you the model. I have done it before.....

Prgram old RCA removte

I also have an early RCA universal remote with the number 97P04730 stamped on the battery cover. I do know if that is the part number for the remote. There are buttons labelled TV and VCR, presumably to select which device the buttons will work for. This remote has a "search" button, but no "code search" button that is found on later RCA remotes. I have spend several hours searching the net for any information on this device. The only thing I found was a post that claimed this early remote is programmed by pressing and holding the device button (TV or VCR) and simultaneously entering the device code. Because this is a very old remote, it probably uses 3 digit codes. There are several places that list RCA 3 digit remote codes. I have tried to program mine this way, but I have not been successful. Possibly my remote is not working correctly, but it is putting out IR.

I can not open the remote to my toshiba aircon unit to change the batteries!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Most remote controls have a sliding door cover.
I have attached a photo of a remote control which will guide you.
where the 3 lines and the arrow are on this remote, this is where you need to press gently downwards and slide at the same time to remove the battery cover... unless you can see a single screw in the center of the remote which holds the battery cover on.

I hope this helps you.
If so please leave a vote or comment.

Have a Great Day

My remote stopped working can it be reset


I found the following reference to resetting anything related to the ZN110 remote:

"This remote control works well for all the basic functions on the television: changing channels, adjusting volume, and turning the set on and off. There is not a way to program the TV with the remote control, so if you need to reset the channels after a power outage, for example, you have to do it manually on the TV set itself."

Or it could just be batteries?
