Question about Emerson EWC1902 19 in. TV/VCR Combo
Take apart the remote and remove the rubber button pad.look at the back of the buttons,the carbon has worn off or got full of oil.take a q tip with alcohol and clean the buttons.if they are worn off,take a small piece of aluminum foil and glue it to the button .it is small 1/8 inch diameter or so.if you look at the pc board,you will see 2 sets of lines for each button that do not touch.looks like a small maze.what happens when you touch the button is that the carbon connects the 2 lines.eventually alot of force is needed to make contact work,but it completely wears out the button contact pad surface.Gluing a piece of foil to the button will make it work.i have done it a hundred times on remotes with no replacement...
