I bought my WD TV Live plus from ebay, i got it few days ago, I plugged it into power and hdmi cable, and I got the choose language screen.
Everything was fabulous so far
Then, I inserted a two brand new batteries to the remote, and it didn’t work
Here the trip begun!
I tried 6 or 7 pairs of good batteries… nothing worked, rechargeable… alcaline… duracel… sony… nothing worked!
I also tried to check the remote lights/led by my camera phone… of course didn’t work as well…
After that, I went a friend of mine… who opened the remote, and he discovered that the leds are not working! he replaced them… and installed a new batteries and it works!
I went home, and inserted my original new batteries… didn’t work again!!!
I went back to my friend… and we installed his pair of batteries (the brand of them is: Grunding! made in china) and they worked perfectly!!
Both of us were amazed!
My friend explanation: Because the remote has two leds… so it need some sort of strong batteries… and his advice was to remove one led and keep the other.
What do you think guys?
