Can you please let me know are you trying to find me answers to both my questions?I have never given my bank details on line before so although I had an email saying that the £20 has been taken, I am worried. Please respond as my questions were sent at 9 45 then 10 am this morning.
Hi Hilary,I assume it's the buttons on the remote control you're having trouble with. It may be that there is dirt / grime / sometimes greasy layer on the silicon keypad, so if vou're handy with electrical items or know someone that is, I'd suggest carefully dismantling the remote and giving the silicon keypad / contacts on the circuit board a clean with a dry lint free rag. Alternatively replacement remotes can be purchased on ebay for the Recorder and TV.Hope that helps,Richard
