If you suspect that you have a faulty remote control you can perform a very simple check.

  1. Ensure the remote has new batteries
  2. Using a digital camera like on your phone (on Apple iPhones you will have to use the front facing camera)
  3. While looking at the phone screen point the remote at the camera lens and press some buttons. You should see a flash from the remote IR blaster in the camera. You won’t see this flash with the naked eye as the light is not visible to the naked human eye, but can be detected with a camera.

If you don’t see a flash of light the remote is not working.
