This is usually because the controll has got damp or has got dusty inside the best thingto do is take the case of and clean the back of the buttons then with a dry cloth wipe the board where the buttons press this should solve your problem but as this controll work on different things maybe you dont need to use these buttons so unless oyu need to you use them leave it as it is hope this is some help

I cant find a code or how to program my sony RM-Y187 remote to my Dynex DX- DVD2

If your remote is older than the Dynex, there may not be any code set for it built-in and if it is not a 'learning remote' it may not do what you want. Your best chance for a code listing will be on the Sony website.

Cars game only has one player as an option, how do I open/unlock 2 player mode? Tried 1 and 2 on second remote, nothing happened.

  • From the Disney/Pixar Toy Story Mania! opening screen, press the 1 button on Player 1 Wii remote to start.

  • At the "How many players?" (color palette) screen, point to the number of players (1 through 4) and press the A button.

  • Point to the desired color for each player and press the A button on the corresponding Wii remote. The player's number will be displayed in the color (for example: 1 in yellow, 2 in purple). Point to the green arrow and press the A button to advance.

  • At the name entry screen (Mr. Spell), starting with Player 1, point to the letters and press the A button to select. Once Player 1's name has been entered, point to "Enter" and press the A button to advance to the next player.

  • When all players' names have been entered, you may select from Story or Freeplay mode to begin playing. Freeplay mode will only contain games that were previously unlocked in Story mode. For more information on Disney/Pixar Toy Story Mania! game modes, see the game manual.

    How do you program the Sony rm-p311 remote

    You may wish to clear the remote's memory before starting. Slide the top left switch to "Learn." Press ANY button on the remote, do not worry if the indicator light flashes. Press the "Program Clear" button. The indicator should flash 4 (maybe 5?) times. You are now ready to program. Make sure the switch is in the "Learn" position. Place the rm-p311 and the remote you want to program in about 2 cm apart facing each other. Push the button you wish to program on the rm-p311. The indicator light should come on with a slight delay. Press and hold the button on the other remote until the indicator light goes out. Put the slider back to "User" mode and test it! For more info., go to sony's support site and search for the user manual for the STR-AV1070 receiver. It contains instructions for the remote.
