      Sky Remote Completely Stopped Working?

      Hi all
      This is my first post so go easy!

      I have just tried to post this but it doesn't seem to have worked so I'm sorry if I have double posted.

      Sorry if this has been posted many times before or I am teaching granny to suck eggs but the other day my remote stopped working completely (no light and not even 1 button working)and I was very close buying a new one.
      After a fair bit of searching on tinternet I found the most simple solution.
      • Make a note of your remote code or get it from the remote codes section of this site (this will blank your remote)
      • Remove the batteries
      • Press and hold the select button for 1 minute
      • Replace the batteries and check if sky is working
      • If it is re-enter your TV code
      I hope this helps and stops someone buying a new remote when they donít need to. I even found someone selling this solution on EBay!
      Cheers
      Jim

      Welcome to the forum, we don't tend to bite.

      Just to add to you comments, it is possible just to swap the batteries. This should prevent you from having to locate the code for your TV it if they hadn't gone flat for too long.

      Thanks Scubbie

      I did try just swapping the batteries but the remote still din't work, this was the only way I could get my remote to work again.


      Cheers
