I had the same problem with two remotes. Replacements are either hard to find or very expensive, so with nothing to lose I opened it up. There's a circuit board inside, and the rubber buttons are all connected together in one grid or mat. Each button has a corresponding copper square on the circuit board. I immediately saw that the square for the light dimmer button had a dark smudge, presumably from the rubber button.

The smudge was easily cleaned with a q-tip and denatured alcohol. Put it back together, and the button works!

Note, there are two screws that hold the remote housing together, but just one was visible on my unit. The other is below the sticker (with the FCC info). I was able to access the screw by simply pressing the screwdriver through the sticker.

I had the same problem. open the remote (two screws) one under the label. I used a pencil eraser to clean contact on left side of computer board. Then took the buttons out and spun them around. screwed it back together and it works fine.

Sounds like your key fob is either broken or the battery might be dead.

Remote will not work to change channels or turn the t.v. off. have installed 2 new aa batteries and still does not work


There is an easy way to check if the infrared light used by the remote to communicate with the television is working or not. All you need is a cell phone with a camera on it (or any camera). Cameras can detect infrared light that easily unlike our eyes which cannot see infrared light. Point the camera at the top of the remote where the infrared lights are. Press the power button on the remote and you will see the infrared light blink on for a second. If this is the case, you know the remote works. If not, you have a broken remote or one that needs to be fixed. I can help you a lot more if you provide the model of remote you have. Good luck!

The on / off button on the remote does not work. Will a new remote take care of the problem?


A new remote should. It could either be that the remote is broken or the receiver on the tv. Make sure that the tv works with other buttons such as volume and channel. If everything except the power button on the remote works, just get a new remote.

880 universal remote volume button broke. little rubber botton on inside that pushes the volume button on inside broken.face plate cracked and arrow button on left right underneath face broken and missing...


My volume button also broke (actually, the VOLUME UP function stopped working). Rather than trying to get the remote fixed, I found a different solution...
I reprogrammed the + key (bottom left of the remote) to be my new Volume UP function. You can do this by going to any of the activities you've already defined, and adding a custom button to the activity.
Choose the + button (it will probably not have an existing function), and tell it to use the Volume Up function of the component you normally use for volume. In my case, it was the Home Theater Receiver.
I hope that helps.

Remote control


I had the same problem.  The problem is strange and seems to be with the receiver in the TV and not the remote control.  The reason I say this is that when this first happened my Samsung brand DVD could actually control the TV.  This then also failed, but still works fine with the DVD player.
Anyway there is an even more bizarre fix to all this......
- Remove the batteries from your TV remote. - Press and hold the red (ON/OFF) button for at least 1 min. - Replace the batteries and hey presto!!
I know seems far fetched but I found it on the Samsung website and it does work.

Garage door keypad & remote


You need to sync both. I have a LiftMaster. If you want to change the code on your keypad you need to open up the garage door motor compartment where the light is (mine is in the back). Press the learn button, within 30 seconds enter the new code on your keypad and hold down the enter button for several seconds until the light on the opener blinks to tell you it has learned the code. Test the new code to see if it works. If the new keypad code works, then try the remote. My remote will not work after I reprogram the keypad. If the remote does not work (check battery) then climb back up the ladder and press the learn button on the garage door motor again, press the remote button and hold down until the light blinks again and the opener has learned the new code. This process works when I need to sync my remote and keypad. Good luck, I hope this helps.
