Step 1: Supplies
Rubbing alcohol, cotton ball cue tips , and small screwdriver
Step 2: Taking It Apart
First remove the batteries, then find the screws, most remotes try to hide them so you won't open the remote they could be under a sticker, a button , or deep into the remote. Some don't have screws and just clamp together. My remote had two screws that can be easily seen and others hidden under a plastic cover.
Step 3: Rubbing Down Circuit Board
Remove the rubber keypad which reveals the circuit board wipe the contacts all with a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol also clean the clear plastic piece where the I.R blaster sits behind.
