Try taking it apart and cleaning the rubber number pad with alcohol and let dry before putting back together this should help.
It seems to have have something spilled on it.

There is no setup or code button onthis remote so how do i get it to program to tv manual nas been lost

The only solution seems to be: return this remote and get a better remote that has a 'setup' button. What pinhead designers produce a universal remote without a setup button?

I"m facing the same thing....

The volume on the TV keeps going down by itself. What should I do?

Dont know what tv you have but. You can remove the batteries from remote and if volume still goes down you ruled out the remote as the problem.. Or just take remote to another room. If the problem still exists then Im guessing either a sticky button on the tv volume down or as I have seen to many times.. People clean their tvs with windex or some cleaner and it drips down into the tv messing up the control buttons. Hopefully its just a sticky button..

MY controler wont turn on when fully charged and it does responed to the ps3

At the back top of the remote behind the 4 red lights there is a tiny pin-hole. With your PS3 on, press the big PS button on your remote, then push the button inside this little hole; a pencil lead may work. This is the only time you need to do this.

Good luck and please give me a good rating if i've helped you.

Activities Button Does Not Work

I had the same problem so I pulled my remote apart. The remote has two types of switches - little button mechanical switches and surface contact switches. The activities button is a mechanical button switch that has a small domed piece of metal that goes over concentric rings on the circuit board. this is all under a sticky white piece of insulating sheet. I carefully pulled up the white sheet and cleaned the contacts on the board and on the circuit board. I put it all back to gether and the switch now works fine. Very delicate work but that is the only way to fix the problem.
