The most likely cause is the remote itself.
To give them a soft feel, the contacts inside the remote are conductive rubber pressed on a printed contact on a small circuit board.

There are three possible problems:

1) The conductive rubber have become high resistant and has simply worn out, in which case the remote is best placed in your trash can, unless you want to paint each contact with silver conductive paint.

2) The contacts are tarnished or dirty. If you can carefully open the unit and clean everthing thoroughly you may get more life from it

3) It has become contaminated by liquid.
Babies love chewing em, as do dogs. Tea, coffee and beer always look for remotes to spill on too. If you think something like this may have happened, again you may be able to open it and clean everything.

Failing that, consider buying a one for all remote as a replacement. These can be programmed for specific equipment with a code.

Hi. We have an alba tv at work. To control it we have a total control universal remote. When playing dvds the alternate camera angle icon appears on screen and we can't work out how to get rid of it.

Since Alternate Angle is a DVD function, you probably need to turn it off somewhere in the blu-Ray/DVD player.

You may need to use the blu-Ray's remote, since all the buttons may not have been included in the Total Control remote.

Manufacturers often stick to the same remote frequencies, so give it a try. The old remote may work again, if you carefully clean the battery contacts. The reason it's not working now is probably because the batteries are not making food electrical contact.

I need to get a new remote control for my alba dvd player. model DS-5711.

you can try contacting the manufacture of the remote control and model and order one online or you can take your old one if it is still repairable and get it fixed at a tv or a electrical outlet but you will be able to get one online if you have a problem locating then try google or ebay and if that dont work you can often get a multi function remote control from many electrical outlets and reprogram the new one to set up with your dvd player some supermarkets even sell these multi function remote controls

Connect pin 1 & 5 together (momentarily with a small switch), on the remote control handset. with the tv already switched on, This will put the set into the engineering set up mode. You can step between the various options by using the -/-- button. the Mute button invites you to save your changes which I believe is saved when you next press the -/-- button. there are 18 different service pages in all, be very careful not to change things which should be left alone, as this menu controls the way this set operates. The menu button exits the service menu. I believe menu 13 should be the AV-SND options menu, you can select either DK-I-BG or M sound systems. only set one system to "on"at any one time. You may also need to check 14, the C- SYSTEM options Menu. Good Luck, A D.
