Infrared Remote Control Repair
Remote Specials For All Brands
The original remote is always preferable to a cheap universal replacement. Send your
expensive or no longer available remote for repair. Most remote controls are
repaired flat rate $25 + $7 Priority Mail return shipping. Some remotes may require parts
and a few are quite complex and the labor rate is higher. Expect $30-40 labor on
large programmable remotes with 25 + buttons, remotes with doors, LCD panels, or slide
switches. Please use this service for expensive or no longer available remote controls.
Remotes that can be replaced for under $40 should only be sent after consideration. We
will not necessarily compare a repair to a replacement unless you specifically ask us to
evaluate it that way. If you request an estimate over $25 or if the remote repair will be
more than $40 we will give you an estimate first. If the remote is unrepairable you may
have it returned for the shipping charge and a $5 bench charge or add it to our
"organ donor program" and owe nothing.

Be aware that some cosmetic damage to
the case may happen in the opening of the remote.
Most will show no signs of entry, but due to the design of some remotes it is unavoidable.
There is also the slight possibility of case discoloration and/or letter removal from the
cleaning process. We do our best to minimize cosmetic damage, but due to the large number
of different remote case designs and materials, there is no guarantee that we can return
it in the exact same physical shape it was before it's opened. Some case designs require
that they be glued back together effectively making them only repairable once.
Much like humans who go in for minor
surgery and never make it home, there is also the possibility for the remote to come off
the repair bench in worse shape than it went in. Intermittent or partially operating
remotes have been known to "hard fail" during repair. It is rare, but we cannot
guarantee that a partially or intermittent operating remote won't become totally unusable
after a repair attempt.
