This is for the two way pager style remotes. If the remote no longer charges or it does not display anything then it could use a new rechargeable battery. This is usually the case for 9 out of 10 problems. This battery is much like the one in your cell phone and has a chargeable life. Over time and charging it gets weaker. Also if you leave the remote uncharged for a very long time there is a good chance the battery will not recharge. If you need to go on vacation for a very long time, charge the remote and then disconnect the battery from the remote. It takes about one minute after you reconnect the battery too the remote for it to start back up. This does nothing to the pairing of the remote or system, the remote saves all of that info in it and does not require battery power to keep it saved. Here is a website to purchase new batteries viperremotebattery.com and a youtube video how to change it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGnG5iCX09A Thanks, Hopefully I can help someone in need because these remotes are very expensive.
You have to get the remote and transceiver to talk to each other. Remove all the batteries and wait a couple of minutes
before replaceing them. Place the transceiver in the REMOTE
position, press and hold down the LEARN button, and then
press the MODE button on the remote control. A change in the
beep tone will be heard and you have MARRIED the two devices. Should solve the problem.
If changing the batteries did not resolve your issue with your remote, we may need to replace the remote. You might check to see if all batteries have the positive side facing down on the remote. If so, then call 1-800-333-3474, speak with Tech support. I hope this helps.
the best way to check the remote is to point the remote at a digital camera look in the viewfinder or the display and press the remote, buttons and if the remote is good you will see a small blue light at the very end of the remote!!! techman
There is most likely nothing wrong with your remote. I just had exactly the same issue with my SE-R0161 remote. (I had just changed my remote batteries too and was getting a DR-2 code on the Toshiba DVR RD-XS52 unit's display.) My DVR and my remote had to be realigned so that they both have the same infared (IR) code. The remote and the DVR can have DR 1, DR 2 or DR 3 as remote codes. Pg 54 of the Toshiba Installation Manual explains how to align both your SE-R0161 and your based unit so that the remote works again. Good luck. Hope this helps.
