Question about RCA Universal Remote Control

Cleaning the PC board in an RCA universal remote control

When any of my TV remote controls start working intermittently, and after checking the batteries [replacing if necessary], I open them and clean internal the pc board with "Electro Klene 148" ... with successful results. About 1/2 of the buttons on an RCA Universal remote control stopped working, I replaced the batteries ... to no avail ... so I opened it up to clean it internally. I noticed a fairly heavy coating of what I'll guess is a conductive coating of some sort, that helps the internal contacts make connection. I still attempted to clean it; still to no avail. The same buttons are still not working consistently. Help!

    I have the same problems with multiple remote controls. I DO clean the grease off and they work again. The question is IS the grease human goo or a conductive grease - that perhaps has been contaminated by human goo so ti does not work well.

    Does anyone know?

Cleaning will help only for removing dirt. I think in your case, the contacts in the circuit board and the rubber pad is damaged with heavy use. So use CARBON INK to recreate the contacts in the circuit board. Also use carbon dots(Available in sticker form) in rubber pad.
I think, this will fix your problem

Volume controls dont work when using remote

I would start by trying other codes on the universal remote. Sometimes codes will only work part of the remote such as the numbers or channels but not volume. Your motorola cable remote sounds like it may only need a good cleaning. sometimes when you take remotes apart it will look like somthing got spilt in it. I would start there first.

Rca tv and rca remote

Is the remote control the one that came with the set or is it a universal? If the remote came with the tv, it may have a bad internal rubber pad board ( not fixable ), if it's a universal remote, you may need to change the code of add the codes for the dvd. The dvd and the tv work internally on seperate codes. I hope this has helped
