Remote buttons may not work as expected due to sticky buttons, dead batteries, conductivity errors, screw problems inside the battery compartment, poor circuit supply, etc. You have come to the right place if your remote buttons don’t work as expected. Here I will tell you how to fix remote control issues when it doesn’t work, even for the Grundig remote. If you understand why the remote buttons don’t work, you don’t need to buy a new remote control because you can fix what is the actual issue inside the remote.
Solutions to Fix If Remote Control Buttons Not work
Conductivity Issue: Inside the remote and upper side of the circuit board, you can see a conductivity layer that gives commands to the circuit board. If the layers were damaged, you might need to replace the conductivity layer to restore your remote control.
Spring Issue: Inside the battery compartment, you can see one or two springs holding the battery tightly to supply power to the remote control. If the springs get damaged, battery power can’t be transmitted to the remote. Clean the Springs using an electronic cleanser, insert new batteries, and test the remote control.
Battery Issue: If you use one new battery and another old battery, the remote can’t receive the power supply correctly, then you will need to use two new batteries.
Voltage Issue: You must read the voltage information inside the battery compartment. If you use low-powered batteries in the remote control, the remote may not receive a proper power supply. Insert suitable batteries into the remote control and start using the remote control.
Programming Issue: Remote controllers may not work due to improper programming. If you use universal remote controllers for your devices, you must program the remote control using a valid code assigned to your remote and corresponding device. To ensure correct programming, refer to the “Acellories Universal Remote Manual” for step-by-step instructions and guidance.
Clean the Circuit Board: If you have been using a single remote control for a long time, you must clean the circuit board using an alcohol cleanser. After this, attach all the remote parts and start using them to control your device.
