You lord your power over your fellow TV watchers mess around with the volume and jus generally annot everybody.
But what if it starts to pack up ,go wrong then not functional at all.Modern televisions need the remote to function so getting up or ordering somebody to change channels doesn't cut it.
The most common affliction is dirt and grease off peoples hands from constant use,this begins to develop around buttons making them sticky and non functional.
Our immediate treaction when the remote does get flakt is replace it,but sometimes they can be hard to get hold off.
So what to do,take the iffy remote to your average tv repair outlet who can sort things out without to much trouble,or if you are competent have a go yourself.
