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.

My remote control does not work suddenly


Try installing new batteries such as Duracell batteries. Make sure they are installed properly in the remote with positive to positive nodes and negative to negative node. If you own a digital camera, you can test the remote to see if it is working. Point remote at camera (powered on) and press a button on the remote. If you see a blue / purple light on the remote's led, then the remote is working. If not, then the remote is probably broken and you need to buy a new one.

118575 remote stopped working batteries are new lights light up but wont control tv or satellite anymore even though it just worked


The receiver more than likely received a software update or reset itself and reset the codes to the receiver and tv. We will need to set the remote address again and run a power scan to control the tv. Using the front panel buttons on the receiver press the menu button twice. This will put you at the system info screen. You will see the remote addresses for tv 1 and 2. They will probably both be set to 1 if the receiver reset. Press and hold the SAT button on the TV1 remote until all lights across the top light up and release. Now key in a two digit number between 1 and 16 (for 1-9 precede that numeric with a zero) now press the pound key at the bottom right of the remote numeric keypad. The SAT button will flash three times and press the record button until the remote address on the screen displays the one you entered. The receiver should now be able to be controlled by the remote. Now we need to do a power scan - press and hold the upper left TV button until all buttons across the top light up and release. Press the red TV button and release, The TV button should be lit constantly. Now press the channel up button slowly until the TV turns off. Once it does press the channel down once and then cannel up to see if the TV turns back on. If it does press the pound sign. Now press the record button and you are back in business. If you have further issues let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

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.

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.
