In the last week, the effective range for the remote to my DVD player has been limited to about three feet. This reduces its utility considerably.
I’ve wiped off the faceplate on the player to make sure it wasn’t dusty, and swiped my thumb over the exposed IRED on the remote to no avail.
I didn’t figure the batteries would make a difference – it’s not like the emitter dims if the voltage drops a bit – but I replaced them anyway. Nope.
Anybody have any thoughts on what else might be the problem?
