The power button and the arrow keys, up & down, don't work on my VWM-700 Sanyo VCR remote. I took the remote apart and cleaned the interior, including the battery contacts, but it still won't work correctly. Can you help???

Re: remote control problems
I would love to say we can help, but the truth is, you remote needs to be replaced. One of the advantages to have the remote is that you wear out the remote, not the controls on the tv. And replacing a remote is much cheaper. You have done all you can to save this remote. You will need to replace it.

It's possible that all that has happened is that the plastic has snapped which press on the control. All you need to do is remove the front panel and glue or melt the switch (with a soldering iron) back in place. Any TV engineer should be able to do it if you can't yourself.
Tried several well known online sites but they don't appear to have the models you are asking about. The best place and cheapest was E-Bay for Sanyo remotes in general. I find that places however overcharge for a replacement remote as they know that they are easily lost or broken. It's better and cheaper to get a good brand universal remote then pay the £90+ for one!
