It was a bit rude of you to tell Arlene to “not bother to visit here again”, don’t you think?
You are not a moderator on here and it is not your place to tell posters to not visit the site again. Actually, mods wouldn’t speak to people like that, so what makes you think YOU can?
You will probably claim that you were being lighthearted, but without a little smiley emoji or a lol your post just comes across as rude, ignorant and NOT, I’m quite sure, the type of thing Amazon want their valued customers to be subjected to on their, not your, forum.
I have reported your post.
yes I quite agree with you. Combat Wombats remarks were rude and inappropriate. He seems to be going around as if he owns the forum. One of the reasons why Amazon banned him from posting anything earlier this year. I too have reported him.......
1 - by all means throw equipment into the back garden if it makes you happy. If so, please do not bother to visit here again since other customers try to make stuff work, rather than just have a hissy fit.
2 - Replace the batteries correctly, not i repeat NOT in the normal European way of one each way - face them both the same way.
Combat Wombat. Your remarks are rude and inappropriate. I have reported you.............:(
Well, this is an old thread but the advice fixed my problem. Thank you all, and I do hope Arlene was able to enjoy her tennis.
I removed batteries from the remote, unplugged the mini usb from the stick and removed the stick from the tv. Not being a tea drinker I was not able to follow that directive, but did sit down and complete a sudoku puzzle. Putting it all together again and rebooting fixed the problem. Thank you all for you assistance.
@Wonderdog: Always good to catch up on old advice that still assists fellow customers. I have to admit that I am trying green tea now - but it really does not cut the mustard :(
It continues to be somewhat disturbing that simply rebooting stuff often cures things. I totally respect the "I don't want to reboot stuff" lobby - it does take a few minutes to get things back on track - but it seems a lot easier than some alternatives.
I must admit that @Kelp_Bed's frequent highlighting that all Amazon devices were sub-standard and failed to work was often a bit wide of the mark, but I guess we all have to speak as we find.

I wonder why someone would follow their own alternative forum profile.
