WOOT! I did something no one else has done. FIX YOUR GYRATION REMOTE HOW TO!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok, so a lot of us have had the Gyration Remote controls or mice and a lot of them fail eventually because the gyro stops working. Some people drop theirs on accident and the little gyro cover comes off, some people treat theirs like gold and it still stops working with the same issue. I have personally had several of them go out, a couple go out at work and finally last night a friend of mine sent me a text frustrated because his stopped working as well.

I had tried many times in the past to see what I could do to fix the issue with no success... until now. I hope that this helps many of you out there that have had the same issue!

Being a broke single dad of two teenagers has really made me focus on fixing whatever I can to save money, so my cheapness is now your gain!! (wish I could make money off this lol)

I have been looking for a solution to this forever, thanks for the video! I will give it a try. I dont know if I really have any magnets laying around is there a specific one I should buy? Did this fix it permanently or for how long? Any other tips-I need to fix several?

Holy crap! You just went and figured that out? What the hell do you do for a living? I have 2 of those remotes still (and it appears they don't sell them any more) so I will keep this video. By the way, I also have the Measy RC air remote that has 2 video links after the above video, and find it works poorly.

Suggestion:
Since the video is on Youtube data loss of the video probably won't happen, but would you please expand on what is being described in the video?
(EG: Do a write up)

Reason I ask is so many times on the net I'll run across info I really need and find images have been deleted, videos disappear.

************
BTW: One poster asked about totally removing the cover while remote was functional so you wouldn't have to reinitialize it (That is what you are doing in the video?) I suggested HOT-GLUING cover in place, and maybe using something to sandwhich the casing against the otter housing so it can't come off -Sound viable?

Looks like the Gyration Remote fix video is now gone, does anyone else have a copy they can post please? Or can someone give a quick recap of how to fix the Gyration Remote?
