sunfire classic remote repair

well I went and dropped my remote.
it only worked after that if I was about a foot away from the pre.
when I used my camera to see if the infrared was working, yes your dgital camera can see this and show it on the screen of your camera, try it.
it showed that it was not, but the remote did work only at close range, that told me the led was bad, as its output was not strong enough.
also tested to see if the Ceramic Resonator was working, hooked up a visible led and could see that it was modulating the output.
so I replaced the stock led with a ratshack high output type. the remote works even better now.

Re: sunfire classic remote repair

Right on, glad to hear you got it fixed. Those original remotes are next to impossible to find, you might want to make a copy for safe keeping. I copied one onto a MX-500 universal remote (same as the Sunfire remotes) and it works great.
