Please refrain from pressing too ******* the screen. The pressure responsive clear cover in front of the LCD screen can crack, resulting in a defective touch screen. If you truly wish to disassemble the unit, then there is a way. But please understand that this WILL void your warranty.

First, remove the battery cover on the back and unplug the battery pack, then remove the battery pack. Now, if your fingernail is strong enough, you can wedge it in between where the dark colored rear plastic plate and the light colored front plastic plate meet along the sides. Start in one spot, then slowly and gently work your way around the entire remote. If done properly, the two sections should begin to unsnap from each other. Once the back cover is unfastened, be cautious of the black wire connected to the ground shield on the inside of the back cover. Now you'll notice 3 seperate wire harnesses attached to the back plate that plug into the circuit board. Carefully unplug these harnesses. Don't worry if the small, black round device on one of the harnesses falls off the back plate. That is just the small speaker and can easily be pressed onto the back plate again. Once all the harnesses are unplugged, move the back cover around until it is out of your way, without pulling the ground shield wire loose. Now you should be able to see the green circuit board. The next step is to unfasten the wide, flat ribbon cable on the lower left side of the circuit board. Look closely where the ribbon cable is plugged into the white colored slot. On the sides of that slot are small black flanges. Carefully pull those flanges away from the slot to unlock the ribbon cable. You won't have to move the flanges very far. Now gently remove the ribbon cable from the slot and leave it there for the time being. Continuing, you'll need to remove the 4 small phillips head screws that secure the green circuit board to the front plate. You can possibly use a #1 phillips head screwdriver, but a #0 or smaller is preferred. Once all 4 screws are removed, you can begin to gently lift the circuit board away from the front plate. Be cautious while letting the ribbon cable slide through the slot in the circuit board. Once the circuit board is removed, you should be able to access the rear side of the lcd screen assembly. The screen assembly simply snaps onto the back side of the front cover plate via 4 small grey plastic snap studs. If your screen was already crooked in the remote, then one or more of these plastic snap studs may be broken. If so, then a few small drops of hot glue may help hold the screen in its correct position. Now, if the screen assembly was already in the correct spot, but the internal sections of the screen are what were misaligned, then it may be beyond self-repair.

This is as far as I can help with this. I'm sorry if I left out any steps, as I'm trying to conjure this from memory.

Good luck.

Mx3000 does not charge when in cradle. nothing

I agree with ceocass, however if you find that the contacts are clean and you have made certain that the charging cradle is plugged in you may simply need to replace the battery.
Please note that the replacement batteries for the MX3000 Universal Remote Control, p/n's Powercard PC046067-H & PC036067V3 have been discontinued. now carries an alternative battery, p/n PL056067V3 which is a 2,100 mAh typical capacity battery that can be used as a replacement.
Please confirm that the connector type is the same as your battery prior to placing your order. We only carry this battery with the Version 3 connector which has a built in pressure release tab.

remove the batterys and look for 1 to 4 screw holes. have a thin bladed knife to push in on the seam and to pry open. I start at the battery box side.. once apart you might have 1 or 2 small screws holding the curcit board down and some prongs to . Remove the srews and push the prongs to the side and pull off the board . you will be at the rubber button side. clean as much as possible. notice the inside of the buttons. you can use a pencil to draw on the inside to act as a conductor for the bad buttons that are worn
