Reassembling the new remote

Before I re-assembled the remote I did a quick test to make sure everything worked good. Using a digital camera or camera can be useful since it will allow you to “see” if the IR LEDs are working when each button is pressed. Of course the real test is to see if the TV is controlled properly since it would be possible to reverse a few of the connections. It went together nice and easy, I didn’t even have any bonus screws when it was all buttoned up. 🙂 The only visible wires when the battery compartment is opened are the power wires that are soldered to the front of the board to the contacts where the original battery connections were removed from.
