I have Boston Acoustics AVR-7120 Remote control LRC (identical to MX-500) that switched into the TEST mode. How turn it back to the normal operations
Opened Remote control and cleaned all contacts.
Checked every button for response. All buttons are functional.
Test shows that everything is GOOD, but RAM EMPTY

I am here and still waiting for the answer.I think for expert it should be very simple question.Basically I want to know can I return my Remote control to live and if yes, then how?
Hello, my name is Rusty. I can help you.How long were the batteries out of the remote?
Long enough, approximately one year.
Ok, so it seems to me like the remote needs to be reprogrammed, does that sound like your situation? If the batteries are out for a period of time, it forgets the programming. Tell me if this sounds like your situation.
Rusty, I think you are right. The question is how?Can I do it myself or need to go to the vendor.I checked their website, looks like they don't support this product anymore.But anyway thanks. You just confirmed my suspicious. I was hoping that this device has not only RAM and it is possible to reload program.
You can do it yourself. Turn on the device you want to program.I could try to explain this, but I think it's easier to just show you the manual. Click here, download the manual, and turn to page 20. It has your setup instructions. I'm still searching for your device codes, do you have the manual that came with the remote? There's a separate one for the remote.
Rusty, I am very appreciated your help. I have tried basically everything what is in manuals, I have them both. And I tried to find Boston code, but manual doesn't have it. The manual says that Remote control can read it from device. The problem is that Remote control in the test mode. I tried to hold Main-Enter and no response.I afraid I need to connect Control to computer and download program if it still alive, I don't have program and cable to connect.Maybe better to by another Remote control and program it from my AVR, today are so many on the market. What do think.Very thankfulBoris
I did notice that support for your remote has fallen off the planet. I know of a ton of remotes that will work for you. Click the links below. All of these remotes can be programmed easily, and for every device on the planet (practically).Harmony 650 Up to 5 devices, but if you watch a movie, then hit all off, when you turn it on to watch TV, it doesn't switch your TV input. It's kind of annoying, but I deal with mine. You'll get used to it. It's the only downside. For the money, this remote rocks. It is the closest match your remote. Compatible with XP, Vista, 7.Harmony ONE Up to 15 devices, and I think they fixed the input problem of the 650. Some of these have battery problems, and they are sensitive if you drop them, but they are repairable by DIY methods. It has color touch screen. This remote will not work with Windows 7. XP, Vista, 2000 only.Harmony 900 This one is the best remote for under $250. It has IR, a charging dock like the Harmony ONE, and is more durable. Compatible with XP, Vista 7.All of these remotes are programmed online, or you can download the free software. You can set it up while you're waiting for it to arrive, or you can get them at electronics stores, and the 650 is at Walmart. Go to www.logitech.com/myharmony to set up your account and start programming. Then when your remote arrives, just plug it into the computer with the supplied cable, log into your Logitech account, and hit the sync button. Give it 5 minutes, and you're ready to go.Let me know if you have any questions.
