Problem with Yamaha RX-V650 remote control

Dear group,

I've got this strange problem with my RX-V650.
Sometimes the remote control stops working, or
some buttons stop working or function different. The
transmit LED also fails during these moments. After
removing the batteries for some seconds, the problem
dissapears, but then returns in a short period of time
(sometimes in a minute).

I have tried to reset all manufacturer codes and then
reprogramming them, but this makes no difference.

Could it be that the remote control really needs 6v to
operate? I have measured the batteries and each one of them
reads 1.4v (adding up this makes 5.6v). This seems enough
to operate, but I can understand that the little piece of
"software" inside needs a tight 6v. Is this true?

Thanks a lot,
Gert Wiersema

Put the old batteries in a flashlight until it no longer puts out enough
light. Clean the contacts in the remote with an eraser and if
needed/possible tension them to put good pressure on the batteries. Put in
new batteries. New 1.5 volt batteries start out at greater than
1.5v(IIRC1.56v). !.4v isn't too bad but may not be enough. 1.2v is dead.
Batteries cheap. Life short.
