Question about Sony RM-Y135 Remote Control
My remote control doesn't work .The red light on the tv button on the remote on the second line stays on at all times. I replaced the batteries and it still stays on. I can't change the channel or the volume. This tv was just given to me and when I first turned it on it worked until I tried to use the channel up and down button. Now it wont even turn it off.

Usually this means the conductive contact on the back of the rubber pad has worn down and cannot connect the circuits on the remote controls main board. There are several ways to fix this.
#1 Find some conductive adhesive or paint and carefully paint the back of the button tab ( let dry completely)
#2 Rear window defogger kits are available at most reputable auto parts shops and contain a paintable adhesive which you can apply to the back of the remote control button.
#3 try super gluing a small piece of aluminum foil to the back of the button tab.
I have used all 3 and they all work good.

Our remote had been not working for a few months.
Today, in another attempt to either price a cheaper replacement or a fix, I happened upon this site.
I tried the series of fixes offered on this page, with no success.
On a whim, I decided to try the 3 position switch in the alternate positions. I figured I had nothing to lose if the remote was truly broken. I tried position 3 with no success.
I put the switch in position 2 and tried it and it WORKED!

Your remote control's internal button contacts on the circuit board may just need cleaning. If there is some residue, or debris, or oxidation inside on the surface of the circuit board it may be interfering with the correct operation of only a few buttons in particular.
It does not sound like a battery connection issue or a bad transmitter since most of the other buttons work fine.
You can try unscrewing, and disassembling the remote control in order to access the contact pads on the circuit board.
First check if there are any screws holding the remote control halves together. Be sure to open up and look inside the battery compartment as well. Once all the holding screws are removed, then gently pry the two halves of the remote control apart.
Use a cloth or a paper towel and some Isopropyl alcohol to clean off the surface of the circuit board and the underside of the button pads. Now check the circuit board for any signs of excessive wear, cracks, or oxidation on the copper contacts. You can use a pencil eraser to gently polish the copper contact pads on the circuit board if necessary. Once the unit is cleaned, just reassemble it and replace the screws and then try it out.
If you did see any significant damage inside or cracks in the circuit board, then you are probably going to have to eventually replace the remote. A wide variety of universal remotes to suit your needs and budget are available at any decent electronics store.
Please comment back here to this page if you have any questions, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.
Thank you very much and good luck.
