Question about Directv RC32RFK Remote Control
I recently got a message on my TV saying that my batteries are low and I should replace them.
I took the batteries out and tried to replace them with some other AA batteries I had, only to find that the batteries that the remote came with (http://www.consumer.philips.com/consumer/en/us/consumer/cc/_productid_R6LS2A_27_US_CONSUMER/Battery+R6LS2A-27) are a different size than "normal" AA batteries.
I took the weird-sized batteries to Target, but they didn't have any AA's except standard sized ones.
Where do you all get your batteries from? Should I just jam some regular AA's in there? They'd fit (I think) but it's be extremely tight and I'm worried that I won't be able to get them out when they die and then I'll have to buy a new remote.
This is really frustrating. I don't know why they couldn't manufacture their remotes to use normal AA batteries.
SOURCE: weird battery size
Here's a link on the Directv forums. They suggest putting a small ball of aluminum foil between the positive terminal on the battery and the contact on the remote.
