Q. Are your remotes new or used? 

A. All of our remotes are BRAND NEW.   About 10 years ago we used to sell refurbished remotes, but about 1 out of 5 were returned within one month. We learned our lesson. We only sell brand new remotes.

 

Q. I canít find my remote on your list, what should I do? 

A. A common mistake many people make is they forget to click on what type of unit their remote is for.  EXAMPLE: After you have selected your brand, (JVC, Toshiba, Sony etc.)  you must Select the type of unit you need a remote control for : TV, TV/VCR COMBO,  DVD, VCR etc.

Q. My model number is very close to the number on your site, but not exact, is this important? 

A. Sometimes yes and sometimes no. In some cases this is very important and the remotes are not interchangeable. In other instances it is totally irrelevant and either remote may be used.  To be safe, please call our toll free number 1-800-827-2546 and have one of our qualified phone technicians assist you.

  

Q. Will a universal remote work for me?
