Just started a FB group for this. Search Recycled Remotes. You can trade remotes and ask questions there too. Welcome to join�
Thanks for your comment. I wrote this Instructable 12 years ago and that remote was old then. But the practice of repair is still pretty much the same.
Possibly a cracked circuit board. Check with a bright lamp behind the circuit board if you see cracks. Then solder a tin bridge over the crack.
Possibly faulty xtal on remote and you are transmitting on wrong frequency?
That is a remote possibility. Could not resist this pun?Sometimes the xtal of the remote could be damaged but the remote still transmits on a wrong frequency?
