Taking Apart TV Remotes

    Have taken apart TV remotes that have had various liquids spilled on
    them and so far have been able to clean them up and make them usable.

    Have a Daewoo Tv remote that needs disassembly but have been unable to
    find any screws holding it together. Have done some searching and
    found a number of postings saying that the new remotes are only held
    together by plastic interlocks. Have tried to seperate along the seam
    but have had no success so far.

    Appreciate any tips.


  2. Some good comments from other readers already. I always
    take the batteries out and have a good look around the
    inside edge to get a clue as to how the remote may be
    constructed. I've found credit cards or thin plastic
    shims made from blister packaging to be helpful to slide
    along remote control seams.

    If however it is glued, well what a pain!

    Sometimes just dropping them on hard floor makes them come perfectly apart,
    sometimes even without any damage, :)

    OTOH, often that's exactly *why* they need to come apart for repair....<g>
