If the Remote Ain't Broke, Don't Replace It
Consumers junk millions of remote controls each year. But 20 percent of remotes deemed defective can be returned to service with a simple reset routine, according to MrRemoteControls.com. Here are the instructions verbatim:
- Take the batteries out of the remote control.
- Press and hold every single button down, for 3 seconds, one at a time until every button has been pressed and released. Do not skip any buttons.
- If the remote has slide bars, the slide must be moved to each position then step no. 2 should be repeated.
- When finished, put the slide bar in the correct position to operate the desired unit (for example TV).
- Put new batteries in and try the remote.
