Question
Hi cleggsan,

I own a SONY KD-34XBR960.  Just yesterday the remote worked just fine.  Today the remote stopped changing channels.  The volume works okay.  What should I do to fix the problem?

Sincerely,
Angel

Answer
Could be low batteries.  Try it up close to the tv to see if that helps; if so, replace the batteries.

If remote is a universal type it may need reprogrammed.

You can buy universal remote replacement for $5 and up at places like Walmart.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more.
