If it got wet with fresh water, take the batteries out, dry what you can with a clean towel, and let it and the batteries dry thoroughly. Put it in a sunlit window for a day or two. Better yet, put it in a bag of uncooked rice.

If it was salt water or something else (juice, coffee, etc) then it's tougher. Again, remove the batteries, dry what you can, clean what you can with fresh water, then dry everything and cross your fingers.

Bose sound dock portable got wet - still works just fine. Why doesn't the remote control it anymore?


The remote is only 1/2 of the system; it (probably) uses infra-red to transmit and the sound bar uses a IR detector to receive the the signal.

Make sure the the remote is putting out IR by aiming it at (most) cameras and pressing a button.
You should see light visible to the camera but not to our eyes.
PS: iPhones have IR filters and will not work but the majority of cameras will.

If the remote is working, then the receiver in the sound bar is either still wet or permanently damaged.

MY SMART TV REMOTE CONTROL GOT VERY WET, ITS NOT WORKING NOW WHAT CAN I DO?


Remove the batteries and place the controller in a bag of dry rice for about 48 hours. Then look inside where possible to see if it looks all dried out. If so, replace batteries and try it then.

Since the remote got wet, remove the batteries and let dry or you can try to open it and use a hair drier to dry it.
If that after drying it still doesn't work, check this link to find a new remote control.

Remote buttons won't work except the power button.


open the case from the remote, you just need to clean the surface of the remote (the layer of carbon) of such dirt and dust etc.. way is: clean the layer with a dry cloth (can get a little wet). Do not forget to clean, the rubber from the remote buttons. Hopefully it can help you..

Once these remotes get wet they are no good. Take the old remote to a radio shack store and they will recommend a replacement.

Remote control


Has the remote been dropped on any hard or wet surface?ie. on the floor or a bucket with water.
If it felt on the floor, maybe some wire has unplugged / unwelded.
if felt in a wet surface it needs to be open and dry without the batteries on.
Sometimes the old batteries expel a very corrosive fluid. Verify that the old batteries had no rusted the contact leads of the remote.
if they did, clean the leads, do not damp them.
Good luck!!!
