    If pressing the button harder doesn’t work Arlo, try moving closer to the TV. I find it funny when people move so close to the TV, that they could have just pushed the change channel button while there.

    I do that!

    “Squeeze” the batteries I mean.

    My mouse runs on one AA battery, but when it runs out I stare in disbelief…


    Take it out, roll it around, rub the contacts….
    put it back in…

    “Aw c’mon…. you can’t be finished yet.. "


    Sometimes I get annoyed with myself, and grab the battery away from myself and reprimand myself…
    “C’mon, just spend the dam quarter!”

    Good luck trying to find the channel change button on most newer TV’s.

    I always transfer nearly-dead AA batteries to quartz clocks or LED flashlights after their other use. Both use so little electricity that they can run on nearly-dead batteries, and then they drain the batteries almost completely.

    You too!?
    One thing about a battery-powered mouse: when the battery dies, it’s DEAD!
    Ever bump into an one orphaned battery and wish there were a way to “test” it?

    9 volts are easy with the “kid tester”; “Hey, run this across your tongue to see if it’s really dead.”

    A quarter for a AA? No wonder they’re going dead on you. Most AA alkaline batteries are over $4.00 for a four pack.

    Or trying to find the right remote. I ply between FL and WI, and both places have three remotes, and two different power buttons on some. Down here, when my husband was out of town I had to call Bright House to turn on the TV, and they’d operate on the cable box from a remote source.

    He needs the button that changes the battery for him.

    you can use a multimeter to test how much power is left in batteries, my husband loves doing it because he just started getting interested in the insides of electronic devices.

    Remotes should have a chair side dock for recharging.

    Always a good idea to have spare batteries near.

    Our remote will not turn on/off the tv anymore but will do everything else..if you have it at the right angle. I think we need a new one from the cable company.
