    Default Remote Control playing up?

    I thought I'd share it here anyway.

    I had an "RM-Series Replacement Remote Control" (easily found on Amazon/ebay etc) for my DVD player which started playing up and some buttons needing a heavy press or not working at all even with brand new batteries so I ordered a new one as this had done me well for 3 years almost daily use. I mentioned to the supplier (same people) about me being happy with 3 years service, BUT, rather than just sell me a new one, they came back to me with this suggestion:-


    Hello,
    Can you please do the following procedure:
    1. Insert brand new batteries in the remote, not re-chargeable batteries.
    2. Remove them straight away after inserting them.
    3. Leave these batteries out for 10 - 15 minutes before putting these back into the remote.
    This should re-set the remote for you and get it working
    Best Regards

    ....and, guess what; IT WORKED! Don't ask me how because surely these things don't have an internal memory/back-up battery etc

    Whether this works for other makes of Remote Controls I really don't know but just thought I'd pass this on to you

    Remote Control playing up?
    Realy a very interesting and usefull information
    I know the difference between these batteries are 0.6 volt, with the normal Battery you get at least 1.5 volt, the recharchable 1.2 volt
    But I realy don't see the link to the reset this way.
    No backup battery, maybe a big capacitor, but still no idea how

    I don't think so & how would that trick work better than just putting in new batteries anyway? Saved my 10 so just happy it worked!
