Sony RM-S171 Remote Repair Details
Manufacturer : Sony
Model : RM-S171
Fault Description : Before your asking it just did not switch on and off which is what we mostly use it for as on/off button on system is broken.
On your asking - went back, replaced with new batteries, and tried - everything worked if buttons held down firmly. Next day nothing
This Sony controller arrived safely and on testing was not transmitting on any button press.
This was found to be due to the 480 oscillator, this was replaced which restored full functionality.
