remote stopped working

Hi this afternoon my sky+ HD remote stopped working. I have changed the batteries but the red light at the top of the remote is not flashing when I hit the buttons. I am able to navigate using the panel on the hd box.

The tv is a Sony tv

Re: remote stopped working

Mate what a legend you are! How I scoffed at your suggestion and dismissed you; now I want to buy you beer and slap you on the back. Thank you!

 

...and now to retrieve those 4 other batteries I discarded in the bin.

 

Peace. Good karma I send to you.

Re: remote stopped working

Mine doesn't work. It flashes 3 times when I replace the battery and then nothing.

Re: remote stopped working

Afraid it didn't work for me but this did - from another forum:

 

"You can reset a sky remote control by pressing in sequence --- TV , Red and select buttons together , ( red led should blink twice ) , 999 then Select. This will reset the rc to a default setting."

 

Happy days to all...

Re: remote stopped working

Brilliant. I thought that the remote had completely packed up until I read your remedy. Thank you.
