Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

Hello, my Sony remote control RM-ED008 has developed a fault in that a couple of buttons do not function. My gut feeling is that the touch pad inside the remote may require cleaning. Can someone please give me some advise on how to open the remote without damaging the case? Thanks Brian

I had same issue - took it apart on the off chance it may be dirty inside. Low and behold sticky substance - my guess juice (or beer!) on pcb sensors - gave it a quick clean and drying out, good as new.

Weird - so has mine!! On/Off stopped working, so did menu and external input select. This happened yesterday too. Bit of a co-incidence Hmm - do you think that a software upgrade has occurred overnight? I note that Amazon sell genuine replacements for a tenner.

Sony rm ss251

As all other buttons works properly except Volum Dn, the problem is with the remote control itself. Clean the remote control and check. To clean it, you have to open the remote control. If it too doesn't help you, buy one original remote control from the authorized service center for Sony. No universal remote control will go properly with Sony TVs. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

How to open sony tv remote control rm-ed008

The Sony RM-ED008 remote is opened by prising the case apart, starting in the centre of the short end that does not have the little LED. Other remotes may be held together with one, two or three screws. Don't over-tighten these screws on reassembly - they only screw into plastic.
If your remote is broken because of something spilt on it, it can usually be repaired by careful disassembly, washing in warm water, leaving until thoroughly dry and reassembling.
Remember when replacing the batteries that the spring terminal in the remote always goes to the -ve terminal of the battery and the remote's flat connector goes to the +ve end of the battery. The little dimple sticking out of one end of the battery is the +ve terminal. If the battery terminals are corroded you must clean them carefully before replacing the batteries.
You cannot see the light from the little LED at the end of the remote when a button is pushed, but your phone camera can. Point the remote at the phone and view as if taking a photograph. Press a button on the remote and you will see the light flash on the phone viewfinder screen if the remote is working ok.

Program sony remote to operate dish vip722

The Sony RM-YD029 Remote control will work with the Dish Network VIP722 DVR HD Satellite Receiver, but the Dish Network VIP722's Primary remote address must be set to 1.

The procedure below will allow Sony RM-YD029 remote control to operate Dish VIP722.

Using the Dish Network Remote Control -
1. Press menu 2 times to get to system info page
2. In the system info page the primary remote address is in a white box (bubble) followed by a Green TV (1)symbol that says IR and indicates you the channel your remote control one is configured. The Sony RM-YD029 will work when this primary remote address number (in the white box) is set to 1.

If the Primary Remote Address of your VIP722 Remote control 1 is not set to channel 1, here is how to change it:

1. While displaying the system info page, press and hold the SAT button on your dish network remote until all other modes are flashing, about 3 seconds.
2. then press the '1' button on the numeric pad of your dish remote
3. then press the '#' button on the numeric pad of the dish remote
4. then press the 'record' button (red dot button - stores setting)
5. At this point you should see a number 1 in front of the primary remote address on the dish system info page

Ensure you enter the corresponding IR code into your Sony remote control per the instructions in the manual or Sony's web site. My 722 works with Sony IR code - 01775.
