A while back my TV was turning itself on and off. Cutting to the chase, I discovered it was my TV remote control when the problem ended when the batteries were to fix it.

Step 1: Open the Remote

I opened the remote and noticed there was an "oil" on the rubber key pad and circuit board.

Step 2: Swab the Parts

I took a swab dampened with alcohol, and cleaned the "oil" off.

Besure to get into the recesses on the rubber pad.

I reassembled the remote and it worked perfectly!

This has also worked for my cordless phone keypad.
