It's unusual for these remotes to break down, but they often suffer from bent contacts in the battery slot.

When the battery is inserted with the tray, if makes contact with a spring terminal on the main board, and a spring terminal at the back of the battery.

First check that the replacement battery is the correct type. If the replacement is too fat, then the board spring has probably been flattened, otherwise the back spring has probably been pushed in.

Either way, its quite easy to fix.

Board Spring: using a thin wire, such as a paperclip or precision screwdriver. gently lift the two contacts from the back until they stay up from the board.

Back spring: using the same tool, hook into the loop on the contact, and gently pull forward.

This will ensure that proper contact is made when the battery is inserted.

Don't worry if you pull the contacts too far, because the battery will push them back.
In this case, remove the battery tray

Sony RM-Y186 remote will not work what is wrong with it?


Hi!
1. don't press the buttons like a hardcore boxer :)
2. disassemble the remote control. No big deal. It has a plastic housing the buttons are on a plastic/rubber sheet. (remove batteries first)
3. clean the plastic/rubber sheet where the buttons are both on top and rear side. Take some clean petrol from the groceries next corner, and clean the black pads on the bottom of the buttons + also on the circuit sheet you'll find inside the remote control.
4. Put everything together and...

Hi There,

Don't press any more buttons at the moment as you may further complicate the problem. I really need to know which satellite remote you have to give the correct instructions, but the following applies to a large number of TVs.

First, press the TV button on the satellite remote. This simply ensures that any buttons pressed afterwards control the TV and not the satellite box.

Next look for a button on the satellite remote labelled INPUT or SOURCE. If you can find one of these buttons, try pressing it repeatedly until the picture from the satellite channels appears on the TV screen. If there is a TV/AV button on your satellite remote, press this once.

If you cannot find any of these buttons on your satellite remote or they do not switch the TV back to TV mode, please let me know which Satellite remote you are using. If you don't have a model number for the remote, please let me know the brand and model number of the satellite receiver.

Hope this helps. Please reply to me by clicking on "Add a comment" below your question.

Thanks,
BElectric

Look for a button marked "source" or "input" on the remote. Alternatively, press the "menu" button and look for an option marked "source" or "input" and selevt AV1, AV2 or DVD. hope this helps.

What channel should I turn my tv to? i have dish


If you have Dish, your remote should have a selection for TV/VIDEO located just under the SAT and TV buttons on the upper left of the remote. Push the TV button, push the TV/VIDEO button, and you should be able to reset the TV to Satellite.

After you've reset the TV, remember to push the SAT button on the upper left to allow your remote to access the satellite.
