Guys, can anyone tell me please where I can get another NB300UD remote? (For a 2160A). I still can't find one in searches.
Hey thanks, that's the closest one I've seen yet. Unfortunately that one different button is a doosey.....to the upper right of the 'circle' buttons, "Top Menu
", is that still "Title
" (as on mine*) or are they reversed with that opposite button "Menu List
"? ("Disc Menu
" on mine when I don't even use). *I use that upper right button a lot
on mine so that would be most difficult getting used to that.
However, the new one is still unused ATM, because I had 4 that came with 2160s & 513s and I haven't worn them all out yet. In fact, one of the four is still like brand new, in addition to the one that is brand new, plus the rarely used NC003 that came with my 515.
Are you saying that you have one just like mine that you don't need?
This one did not get wet in the flood, but for some reason it hasn't worked the same since and now some buttons have stopped working. I've taken it apart and cleaned it, no help!
Cleaned how? I just took my dysfunctional #3
apart and was horrified how nasty it had gotten inside in spite of my using it only with reasonably clean or cleaner fingers, and no one else around to make it grimy. I washed the board with 90% alcohol, the plastic halves with dishwater and stiff brush, and the keypad with soapy water and a soft brush. Now all are drying in warm places where fans are blowing before I will reassemble with hope to have restored operation for at least a couple more years.
Mine was wet on the inside for some strange reason. When I was still in the hotel, I took it apart and wiped down the PCB and keypad with alcohol (70%) but that didn't do much. A few days ago I did the pencil eraser thing on the PCB and wiped the parts again but with 91% alcohol. (I usually used a Dremel, but some evil SOB through away ALL of my Dremel tools, accessories and attachments!) To get it to work, I had to do "the tin foil thing", I was shocked that worked because in the past with other remotes I've used a conductive pen, but that never worked. It would be a PITA to have to meticulously cut out exact sizes of aluminium foil then glue to them to each frickin' pad! I've been those pad replacement repair kits, but they're all square (I need some rectangular) and most are too big for these tiny pads. I also have some of that 'black goop' carbon that you put on the pads to "rejuvenate" them, but I can't find it right now (can't find anything for that matter) and the last time I used it that didn't work very well.
