This is really strange. No problems with this remote for years. All of a sudden, the screen is dark and no sound. I've tried replacing batteries with no change. I've tried using removing a battery and replacing it while hitting the on and mute keys. Yesterday that worked but I was unable to do anything else. Today, just once when I tried a different set of new batteries, everything worked with text and sound. However, when I turned the remote off and tied to turn it back on, there was no response. And today, I can't get it to go into the boot loader. Any suggestions, or is this thing just dead?
Thanks

If you’re the handy sort, the best I can suggest is taking it apart and seeing if there’s anything wrong with the battery connections, like maybe a cracked solder joint. Or something else obviously wrong. Doesn’t sound like anything merely software based.

Thanks for the reply. Opened the unit and nothing wrong that I can see. Good thought though.

I have one where the screen is lit, but blank. It still sounds and sends commands if I select the right keys. I just cannot see anything on the display. Change of batteries does not help. I opened it, but saw nothing obviously wrong. So, I've just given up on it (unless someone can suggest a resolution).

Try a reset:

Put the batteries back in and Press the small silver reset button in the battery area.
