Here are some basic troubleshooting techniques to do in repairing your Cignal remote control:
1.) If some buttons don't work, open the remote control (batteries must be removed first). Clean the button contacts of the circuit board with a pencil eraser. Clean any dirt and dust inside the rubber pads of the buttons with cotton buds and alcohol.
2.) Check the LED bulb at the top end of the remote control. If it's broken or damaged, have it replaced or repaired to a Cignal office or you may call your nearest Cignal dealer.
3.) If the remote control got wet, make sure you remove the batteries first and dry the remote control. Warning: Don't expose to direct sunlight and don't even think to dry it inside an oven. You can place it in a safe and well-ventilated place in your house. If possible, you may open the remote control and check the amount of water inside. Wipe the circuit board and the rubber pads of the button with a cotton or a cotton buds. Don't use the remote control while it's wet.
4.) If you're not an electrician or a technician, don't dare to fix any electrical parts (such as IC or integrated circuit, diodes, capacitors, etc.) inside the remote control. If you don't know exactly what you're doing, don't ever do it. You'll just aggravating the damage.
