This one is easy. I recently had a remote act crazy after about a month. I had programmed all the feature buttons for the multimedia crap in my entertainment system. I went ahead and bought a new one from fleabay. Right after it came in I ran accross a tip for the problem.

Take the batteries out
put them in backwords for just a second
pull and return them the right way.

The remote is working perfect!!!!!

By the way I didn't believe it when I read it either and i have electronics background. Since I had the new one to fall back on I figured why not.
