This is one of those funny jobs. Some times when I’m down town shopping someone will find me and bring up there electronic problems too me. I have the attitude of brig it around to my place. No harm in looking at it.
This is a Dick Smith remote. He had told me that a new remote is $90. He pointed out that a new TV is about $150 more with remote. I pulled the remote down and found a single ic did the whole lot. I look up the remote on eBay for about $35 including postage.
I decided to go ahead and look at the ic. If you ca see. there is some sort of mess near the pins 3,4 ad 5. So i took the ic off the board and cleaned the board and ic. Re-soldered the ic back on with solder paste.
To my surprise, It works again.
