Question about Televison & Video
Remote works ... I have changed the batteries ... no help ... sound increases but will not decrease, channels will change up but not down. TV is a ViewSonic N2751w ... controls are on the top ... they work up and down, both volume and channels ... can you advise regarding the remote? ... unit is dated April 2006
Okay here's the fix.
Remove batteries. Re-install them wrong side in! Don't panic.
Reverse the direction of both the battery cells and install. Press "Power" button a couple of times and a few other buttons a few times. Then remove batteries and re-install the right side in.

ViewSonic remote control RC00070P
I have had the same problem for several months. I have a few problems and a few fixes.
Problems: Volume won't go down, Mute button doesn't work, Power button doesn't work.
Fixes: Hold the volume up "+" button then press the down "-" button at the same time while releasing the up "+" button. Volume should decrease.
Power: Hold the "V-Chip" button down and press the "Power" button at the same time. Then release both.
After I did both of these things, my remote now works fine. I have no idea what the real problem is, but if all else fails, I'll just get off the couch.

I solved it...After weeks of suffering,(you know how it feels without the RC).
Press Power button & Info button the same time to toggle on/off
Press Vol"-" & the "down"(inverted triangle button) the same time
Good Luck. Fellow Viewsonic owners!!!

Many times on old remotes, dirt accumulates on the inside or just some particles get into the inside of the remote and the buttons will not make contact. I have repaired this remote as well as others by cleaning. First the remote has to be opened, and this is the hard part. It is snap fit together and you have to work a screwdriver or other sharp object into the side between the halves. There are no screws used in this remote. I put a screwdriver into the only opening I could find - the LED at the end and accidentally pushed one of the LED (the clear bulb) leads off the circuit board that I then needed to resolder. After the remote is apart, just pop off the circuit board and clean the side of the board that makes contact with the buttons and then the backsides of all the buttons with rubbing alcohol (clean the button fronts if you like to look at clean buttons). Make sure both leads to the LED are soldered. On my remote, a small piece of dirt came out. Reverse the process to reassemble.

We installed a new adapter on a Comcast service for my 2nd TV in our bedroom.. Their remote is not in sync with our Viewsonic so I've to use the VS-remote. At first, power button was working, then it died out. Changed the batteries, the power still didn't work. I read the instructions here to install batteries in reverse and tried the buttons, of course it won't operate. I put them back again in proper sequence "voila great idea Amigo" . It worked and I can operate the power button again.

Pull the batteries out and let it sit for 5 min. Replace batteries. Worked for me
