Directv RC32 remote

I have the same problem with my RC32 Directv remote. The slider switch is broken internally. The button slides but does not change from satellite to off-air channels and I hear something rattling inside. How does the remote separate to replace the clip? I did remove the screws inside the battery compartment but cannot get inside the control.

Thanks, DM

Hey DM - Did you remove all 3 screws under the battery cover? The two little black ones near the bottom and the one up inside the battery compartment? Thanks.

    Hi DM - there's only two. Thinking of another remote. Look at your remote and you'll see a gray oval bezel that is just under the power button and goes down to just above the channel and volume button. This has to come off to reveal the four other black screws. The bezel has three plastic tabs that hold it on. On the left side, directly below the guide button is where one of the tabs is. Using a jewelers screw driver or the thinnest regular screw driver you have, wedge it in and push it down at the point of the tab. Once you have it there just use a gentle pushing down and prying motion. This will push the tab in and release the bezel revealing the four screws. Be gentle but don't be afraid to use a little force to get it down between the side of the bezel and the remote. The bezel should come right off. If this fixes your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed and don't forget to please rate the other as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment to this post and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

    In case you have trouble getting the screw driver in where you want it start a little farther down the remote and slide it as you push it down. Found this works for me.

    And after you get the other 4 screws out you'll probably have to slide something thin between the two halves of the remote to pry it apart.

Disassemble DirecTV RC32 remote to fix sticky buttons

There are a total of SIX screws. You have already found two in the battery compartment. There are four more under the GREY panel on the front of the remote. That grey panel pries out; there are two tabs on the lower sides and one on the top, above the > button, that hold it in. Should not be hard to get it out to reveal the four screws. Take them all out, and the remove easily pries apart for service access.

Can I use a RC23 remote as a replacement for a RC32?

It will work, but as it is an earlier model remote, you may not have access to all of the features that the new remote provides. My son broke my remote, so I bought a new one for $15 and it arrived 2 days later. Here is the link to purchase a new remote:

Hi Jasmine - Let me know if it says RC32 in the top left of your remote. If so, just to the right of that, there is a switch that slides left and right. This chooses which device you are currently controlling with your remote. To control your Directv, just slide the switch all the way to the left. You probably have the switch slid all the way to the right. This for the TV. The two in the middle are for other devices. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks and have a good day.

Directv remote

1) Use 2 new AA batteries in RC32 remote control;
2) Slide mode switch to "TV";
3) Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys at the same
time until the green light under the selected switch
position flashes twice, then release both keys.
4) Enter 9-9-1-1.
5) Press PWR button on TV.
6) Point the remote at the TV and press CHAN+. Repeatedly press CHAN+ until the TV turns off. Every time CHAN+ is pressed the remote advances to the next code and power is transmitted to the component.
7) Use the CHAN- key to step back a code.
8) When the TV turns off, stop pressing the CHAN+ key. Then, press and release the SELECT key. If the light flashes 3 times before the TV or component responds, you've cycled through all codes and the code you need is not available. You must use the TV remote control.
9) To verify the code, slide the MODE switch to the appropriate position.
10) Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys at the same time until the green light under the selected switch position flashes twice, then release both keys.
11) Enter 9-9-0. (The green light under the selected
switch position flashes twice.)
12) To view the first digit in the code, Press and release then number 1 key. Wait three seconds, and count the number of times the green light flashes. Write this number down in the TV owner manual.
13) Press number 2 for the second digit, 3 for the third digit, 4 for the fourth digit and 5 for the final digit.

To control TV volume from Directv RC32:
1. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys until the
green light under the DIRECTV position flashes twice,
then release both keys.
2. Using the number keys, enter 9-9-3. (The green light
will flash twice after the 3.)
3. Press and release the VOL+ key. (The green light
flashes 4 times.)

Directv remote code for polaroid tv

Slide top button on remote to tv. Press and hold mute and select button until the green light on the remote blinks twice. Then press 991. Then press 1. Then press the tv power button once. If the tv doesn't respond hit the channel up button on the remote. If that works press select to store the code and slide the switch back to the left. If it doesn't work keep hitting channel up until it does. It can take up to 30 minutes but it works.
