Introduction

Are some of the buttons on your remote unresponsive? Use this guide to replace the button panel on the remote control.

Make sure to keep the removed screws inside a container, or on a magnetic mat so they don't get misplaced.

  1. Turn the remote control over to show its back and place your index finger in the tab. Squeeze gently to open the battery cover. Lift the battery cover up to expose the batteries.

    Do regular AAA batteries work? I changed the batteries and I am still not getting a signal.

  6. Insert a plastic opening tool in the gap and apply some force to disconnect the two pieces away from each other. Since there are two pins keeping the back of the case together with the motherboard, some force is needed to separate them.

    Vorsicht! Dieser Schritt ist falsch, da sich unter einer Abdeckung zwei weitere Schrauben befinden. Wenn man die Fernbedienung jetzt mit Gewalt öffnet, brechen die beiden im Kunststoffteil eingegossenen Metallinnengewinde heraus!

    Vorab muss eine weitere kleine Kunststoffabdeckung abgehebelt werden. Wenn man gedanklich den Batteriedeckel längs bis zur Front der Fernbedienung verlängert, so ist gerade der verbleibende Rest des Bodenteils gemeint, der eben nicht Teil der Batterieabdeckung ist, jedoch ebenfalls im Querschnitt bogenförmig ist. Dieser ist an beiden Seiten der Fernbedienung eingerastet und zudem mit doppelseitigem Klebestreifen angebracht, daher einseitig ausklinken und dann vorsichtig dem Bogen entlang lösen. Darunter befinden sich zwei weitere Schrauben!

The guide is wrong on step 7, there are 2 more hidden screws behind the plastic curved cover on top. If you get those out, you don't have to apply force to open. With step 7 you brake the metal nuts out of their place.
