Electronics Repair Questions? Ask an Electronics Technician
Hi there and welcome
You will have cracked the mainboard in the remote and this is why tapping it can get it going, but it will eventually cease to work.
I advise you to purchase a replacement which you can do via my link below
This provides all the functionality if the original remote.
Open a Write window. If all the toolbars are missing press the alt key to make the menu bar appear. From the menu bar select View-Toolbars and turn the missing toolbars back on.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
