Fixing a water/coffee damaged remote

retail plus HDMI media player

Hi all,

I had bought a retail plus hdmi media player. It works okay for avi files and that is about it. My 1 year old grabbed the remote and used it as a swizzle stick in my wife's coffee. Now the remote is non responsive.

I have contacted the manufacturer through their web page but they are not responding to my inquiries.

What can I do to bring the remote back to life?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Today I spilt a full cup if coffee over my Sky remote and TV remote. Neither worked after that so I removed the batteries, heated up my oven and once the oven was hot I switched it off. I then wrapped the two remotes in a towel and put them in the oven. After a couple of hours I removed them from the oven, put the batteries back in and both remotes are now working

Take out the battery and warm up a sock full of rice. Put the remote in the sock. Keep it there for one hour. It should work by then .
