    I have a Sony VCR with a handheld r/c called
    RMT-V402, a thin unit 8 inches long. It works
    intermittently if shake it or bang it. Probably
    a bad solder joint.

    But how do I open it? There are no screw heads,
    not even in the battery compartment. Is it all glued
    to be broken apart?

    Thanks,

    Jack

    In most remotes, there are some screws under the batteries. There may also
    be some screws under a label, rubber insert, or a decal. They also use at
    the same time insert locks in their casing. Once you know that the screws
    are all out, you have to try to wedge a sharp type of flat tool to carefully
    wedge the case apart.

    The biggest problem with these are the battery contacts, or where the
    battery contacts are soldered to the circuit board.

    Take note, that many of these remotes are not designed as servable devices,
    and the case may be damaged when trying to open it.

    On some remotes, mostly on the cheaper ones, I seen them with no screws.
    They were held together by (I can't remember the tech term), snaps. Similar
    to the ones you have on Snap-Type models. You have to be careful, and get a
    thin small screw driver, in the seam, and pry outward on one half of the
    remote. However, I can not say this is your case. I don't want you to get
    in there with a screwdriver and end up breaking the case. Maybe someone can
    explain it in more Tech terms. It is just early in the morning, and my
    brain is not working. In a few other cases, I found screws under the metal
    overlay, that labels the buttons. Once again, you have to damage this
    overlay to get to them. However, I have not seen one of these for a LONG
    time. I would say, that you are over looking the screws somewhere. I have
    not seen a remote as listed above in the two examples, in a long time.
    Anyone who wants to see a Picture of this remote, here is a link, scroll up,
    and maybe you can get an idea...

    No screws in battery compartment.
    No stickers to look under.
    Since it does work, I will probably not break
    it open.

    Thanks to all,
