My remote control handset won't work

Dead remotes are sometimes easy to fix and easy to test.

Simply turn your digital camera on and point the front end of remote control at the camera lens. Press any button and you should see the flashes on the viewfinder screen. TV repairmen have been using this technique for years.

If no flashes are seen, hold the remote close to an AM radio tuned off-station. You should hear a stream of clicks when you press the button. This indicates that the remote is working but the LED is dead or disconnected. You can buy a replacement LED.
