Can't get remote to work

We replaced the battery but can't find the back to the remote and so can't get it to work.  Any advice?

    We have two of these machines - on one the remote works, on the other machine, the same remote does not work. So it is NOT the remote. One of my machines does not respond to the REMOTE. Any ideas?? We are past our 90 day return window. thanks!

Do you want a way to hold the batteries in or find a place to get a new one? ( maybe a universal generic)

I have 2 craftsman garage remotes and they do not work. Replaced batteries and still not working. The numbers for the remotes are 139.18790B and 139.18791B. Needing some advice please

First question Did they work with this opener before? If Not then they probably need to have the code set in them. There should be a set of switches inside the remote that are used to match it to your opener. If they worked before then it is possible that they have a bad circuit on the board or just a bad battery connection.

Brand new replacement RM-ED0009 remote will not function. New batteries fitted. Suspect TV fault - advice, please


it might be from the TV remote sensor. To confirm this, test the remote with another TV and if the remote works, then it would be obvious that the remote sensor of your TV is dead.

Take care.

Sony RM-ASP001 for 400 disk changer stopped working

Try the command code switch. I recently had a similar problem when my remote suddenly stopped working. It worked fine one time but nothing the next time I tried it.

I checked the emitter with a digital camera and found it was not working. I did the remote reset (remove batteries and push all the buttons twice, reinsert batteries) and the emitter was now working. However, the remote would still not control the base unit. I did the remote base code reset (push power, volume and TV/DVD buttons together) but this did not help. I then checked the command code switch. This is a small three position slide switch located in the battery compartment on the remote. I slid the switch back and forth several times returning to the default number one setting where it was before. I did not change anything on the base unit but the remote now worked.

Hope this helps.

Problem with wii controller charger

Sounds like you broke your remote to me. did the batteries leak on your remote? If so, try to clean the contacts on the remote (the spring on one side and the flat one on the other). You may need to use a nail file to scrape off the gunge.

Now, why did this happen? Did you put rechargable batteries in your wiimote before you put it on the charger? And if so, did yo put the CORRECT TYPE of rechargables? There's a big difference between nickle cadmium (Ni-CD), Nickle Metal Hydride (Ni-MH), and Rechargable Alkaline. Putting the wrong type of battery, or a non-rechargable battery into the wrong recharger causes leaking, explosion and fire... as the charger and the batteries warn you of all over.
