1 Remove the batteries form the remote and blow hot air by hair drier about 5 seconds . replace the older/ used batteries with new one of same kind. Does it solve your problem ?

2. Remove the batteries and unscrew the remote and then open the case of remote , clean the PCB's key pad area with soft and dry cloth , put small amount of carbon ink (purchase from electronics parts shop- cost $0.5 approx) on key pad's back side round dots, let it be dry for 30-45 min , assemble the remote and fit batteries and enjoy.

In most cases you cannot use a universal remote to adjust settings.

Remove the batteries and any screws you may find there and anywhere else on the case. The front and back halves of the case will have clips holding them together that can be released by inserting a thin tool into the seam separating the case halves, pushing in and prying apart as you work your way around the case. Once the case separates, lay the remote face down on a flat surface so that any individual buttons will not fall out. Remove any screws that may be holding the circuit board and remove it. The contact surface of the rubber buttons is coated with a conductive surface and can be cleaned with alcohol or contact cleaner. The contact area of the circuit board can be cleaned in the same manner or rubbed with a pencil eraser. Reassemble and give it a try before you snap the case together. If all else fails I've had success cutting small pieces of aluminum foil and gluing it to the contact area of the rubber buttons.
