My remote control appears to have stopped working. I tried changing the batteries and it still did not work.

As the people who designed the TV set thoughtfully put all the controls on the remote control, I'm limited to changing the channel and turning the volume up and down.


Update: I fixed it by turning the TV set off and then back on. What kind of a world do we live in where you have to reboot your TV set?

I have fond memories of my old tv that we would fix with percussive technology. Of course, at the time, it was a major pain in the tuckus.

I used to have a crappy VCR which would have firmware crashes periodically. It would freeze and I couldn't do anything with it until power cycling it several times.
