Two of my remotes have suddenly and mysteriously stopped working at the same time. Changed the batteries, pressed them firmly against the contacts and even tried the time honoured method of administering a smart tap or two, but to no avail. Checked the One for All Universal Remote website but my components are not listed with them.

Does anyone know of any good technician anywhere in India who can get them working?

Thanks in advance!

Try shining the ir diode into a mobile camera. The led should light up on screen if it is emitting ir.

You can try contact cleaner for electronics. Try local TV repair shops. They repair remote s in 20/30rs by cleaning culprit contacts. At least worked for me few years ago and still working. Unfortunately that shop is no longer.

Thank you Gentlemen, for your kind advice.

Greenhorn, the IR seems to be dead as a dodo.

Viper08, glad to learn that your problem was solved by a local tv repair shop, shall certainly try them, keeping my fingers crossed.

Efernand1, if repairs fail, then I shall head to Lamington Road for replacements.

Thanks again!
