Replacement TV Remote to the Rescue!
I finally got around to researching my TV remote. Every time I would think of it at work I wouldn't have the TV brand and part number with me and I kept forgetting to look it up when I was home. Last week, I wrote down the part number and did some searching. First, I went to the Sylvania website. I found my remote but it cost around $45 including shipping. I could probably buy a used TV on craigslist with a remote for that price. A little more searching and I found ReplacementRemotes.com. For a refurbished remote control, I would only have to pay $9 plus $4 for shipping. I decided to take a chance with a refurbished remote. My package arrived today. Excitedly, I put the batteries in and tested it on my TV. It works! I can switch to 'game' mode which is what I need for playing DVD's or the wii. Now my TV is useful again instead of headed for a landfill. This TV would have been really nice to have when my sister and her kids were visiting but I can only handle one problem at a time so it had to wait. I am thrilled that this chore was successfully completed with only a little bit of time and money. Not like a certain smoke detector which is on my bad list right now.
