Any idea how to open Toshiba 'remote' VT-859B for VHS Player to check state of batteries please - it slides down so far and has serrated pads both sides suggesting pressing those will release the sliding part but no luck so far???
JA: Who makes your media player? How old is it?
Customer: Toshibe - will get Model No. but can't say how old - 15years at a very wild guess! Model No in a 'mo'!
JA: What have you tried so far with your Toshiba media player?
Customer: V-859B - just the handset 'remote' I'm having probs. with - the controls on the machine work fine ut it's at floor level and at 86 that's a long way down!
