Did you know you can easily test if a remote control is working by using a digital camera or camera-phone?
The 'Infra-Red' light that comes from a remote is usually invisible........ until viewed digitally.
Just look at a Digital camera LCD display whilst getting someone to use the remote aimed at the camera.
You should see little flashes of White light. This works best close-up, in a darkened room.
(You could also use a camcorder, and of course any mobile phone with a camera. Try it!)
If you dont have a digital camera, just operate the remote near the aerial of a radio, switched to AM or MW. (but not FM.)
You should hear a blip, or pulsing sound if your remote if functioning properly.
See our ME page for our website and more info. (just click on the coloured 'ME' symbol, next to our feedback, top-Right of page.)
