I have a universal remote. The power comes on, but I can't get it to work. It used to work until I spilled water on it. I know... Red flag. :) buuut I cleaned it up fast and like I said power still co

Since your remote is responding, you may want to check if it is producing an IR signal. To do this, take a picture of the remote when someone else presses a button. (Have the other person point the remote at the camera lens. With a digital camera (cell phone or other camera), if the remote is producing an IR signal, the resulting picture will show a flare of light.) Taking pictures of several different button presses may indicate which functions are compromised. You can try resetting the codes for the different devices the remote controls.

Unfortunately, you may need to replace your remote with a new one. I've never had much luck cleaning the contacts after they were damaged.

In the future, if you spill water on the remote, first remove the batteries. Then dry the bulk of the water off of the unit. To finish drying the water from the contacts inside, fill a bowl or other container large enough to hold the remote with some uncooked rice. Place your remote (with the battery compartment open) into the rice and leave it there; then cover the bowl. You can rotate the remote in the rice at intervals but leave it in the rice for several days. (The drying process can take a week.) Do not replace the batteries until the remote is completely dry.

Alternatively, get one of the cell phone drying bags and use that to dry the remote. It will still take several days to get all of the moisture out of the unit.

I hope this helps.

Remote Controls don't go bad that easily. Liquid spills
or moisture under the rubber membranes will prevent
contacts being made whenever you push a button.
1. Try replacing new fresh batteries first.
2. Disassemble the Remote and clean both the board (PCB)
and the rubber membranes with a soft water/soap solution
3. Dry them and Re-assemble the unit

I spilled water on my remote control and it stoped working. what can i do?

First, remove the batteries. Then you need to open the remote control (hardest part of job, check if it has a screw in battery compartment ), take it apart. Wipe all water using cotton swabs (q-tips) from board and components, then dry the board on a warm heater or open air. Put everything together.

I need to clean the inside of my remote control.

If it is dirt/dust etc then it won;t hurt it. If you spill a liquid on it then that is another matter. Depending on what was spilled it may be already to late to save it. Certain liquids such as coke contain acids that eat away at parts. Even if it is cleaned very quickly then the contact pads under the buttons may suffer damage and your buttons won;t work.

Basically you can disassemble to remote and clean/rinse with distilled water only. Then let dry for a few days and put it back together. Even tap water can contain things that will attack the parts inside so you need distilled water. A good bottled water will do.

9 out of 10 times the remote gets junked either from the spill or from the cleaning.

in most cases when some remote buttons no longer work it is due to some fluid being spilled on to it or it has simply blown a curcuit that completes the current if its a fluid spill the remote needs to be pulled appart and both the rubber controls pad washed as well as the curcuit bord replace the baterys put the unit back together and it should work fine

Milk spilled on tv remote controller

Remove batteries from remote, to avoid further damage caused from liquid on powered circuits.
Allow the remote with the cover opened to dry for few days. Ideally the remote should be disassembled and the internal parts treated with cleaning solution, or 70% isopropyl alcohol and water. If you do not want to disassemble just let it there to dry up.

If the remote does not work after that , it means that the liquid had damaged circuits.

In that case get a replacement remote.
