Hi Jim,

One of these should be a suitable replacement:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/CONTROL-TECHNICS-RAK-SC508W-Lithium-Battery/dp/B0080C133S

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TECHNICS-RAK-SC508W-AUDIO-SYSTEM-REMOTE-CONTROL-/231012930368

Any good?

Best Regards,

Hi Richard,

I have viewed the three controls that you recommended and they all look like TV controls to me. You say they should work but I have to buy it before I find out and if it doesn't work it's costing me even more money for no results.

So it's a risk that I'm wondering if it's worth taking, unless you really believe its going to work.

Thanks, Jim.

Hi Jim,

 

I guess the first thing is, have I identified the correct remote?

 

I concluded you needed a Technics RAK SC508W from this manual, which shows it on pg 4:

 

Attachment: 2013-07-19_111859_st-x902la,_su-x520d,_su-x920d,_rs-x520,_rs-x920_operating_instructions.pdf

 

If that is the correct one, then the one on Ebay looks original and the same as in the manual. They claim its in perfect working order so it should be fine. Worst case you would need to return it for a refund, which I know can sometimes be a pain.

 

I hope that helps.

 

Best Regards, Richard
