After cleaning the contacts on the circuit board and the back of the rubber remote pad with alcohol and then using this product, it fixed them up good as new.

I ordered this to repair a Marantz RC-200MKII remote. The remote had several keys that quit working. i had to push really hard to make them work. I tried using a circuitwriter pen but the material did not stick to the rubber very well. I did some research and found this on amazon. Decided to give it a try.
I got it in today and read the directions. I took my remote apart and started repairing the keypad. On this remote, the rubber keypad can actually be taken out completely, making the repair much easier. what i did was use pure acetone to clean the back of the keys thoroughly. i first tested the acetone on a torn keypad to make sure acetone wouldn't destroy the rubber. i then placed a table lamp in front of me and slightly to the right of where i was working on the keypad. When i cleaned each key with acetone, i could tell it was clean by holding the pad up to the light. you could tell the cleaned key was a dull grey. once i cleaned all the keys, i started applying the fix. i read in the directions to use a cotton swab but i thought doing that would be messy and possibly apply too much. so i was using the a single tipped cotton swab for cleaning so i used the other end of it to apply the fix. i guess a matchstick would work just as well. after applying the fix on each key i would hold the pad up to the light and you could easily tell where the liquid coated the key. any areas that were missed were easy to see with the light.
The instructions say the product will dry to the touch in two hours and wait overnight before putting the remote back in service. i couldn't wait so i let the keypad airdry for 30 mins and then placed it under the lamp for another hour. the heat from the lamp helped speed up the drying process.
i put the remote back together and it works great!!!!

I have a remote for a DVD recorder that was failing. I'd have to press the power button several times to get the power to come on and would have similar difficulties with other buttons. Due to the brand and the type of remote, a universal remote wasn't an option. The remote was opened and cleaned, but the carbon pads were failing. I ordered the keypad fix, took apart the remote and applied a small amount of this to the pads. It dried overnight and when the remote was re-assembled it worked like it was new. Far cheaper and less of a hassle that trying to order a replacement remote direct from the manufacturer.

I bought it because of the positive reviews, but I am very disappointed. It's junk in my opinion.

I needed it for my car transmitter because the unlock button had become intermittent. Following the instructions, I cleaned the button pad and circuit board, and then decided to do the other buttons as well. They were cleaned carefully using q-tips and acetone.

It worked great for about 3-4 days and then the unlock button needed hard presses to work. And then - while driving - the car's window solenoids started "chirping" randomly! The windows weren't moving, but something was causing the solenoids to get jumpy. I knew what it was...

On arriving home I popped open the transmitter to find little pieces of the material that had flaked off. And the other pads that I had done were peeling off, too! OK, maybe I did something wrong, so I cleaned 'em again and reapplied the coating, hoping this time it would be good. Yeah, for about 2 days - then the solenoids started dancing once more!

So, I decided to use an old method that I know works: gluing little pieces of aluminum foil on the pads with a very small amount of E6000 adhesive. Works well and lasts!

UPDATE: A few days after the aluminum foil fix, while driving, the door lock solenoids (there are no solenoids for windows!) began to click once again. I didn't open the transmitter right away, but continued to use it. It died two days later. On opening the case I found another piece of this coating that had been flattened on the circuit board by one of my button presses. Unfortunately - or maybe fortunately - it managed to be shorting across the button's contacts which drained the battery. So, if you buy this product and experience what I have, be sure to thoroughly clean out the transmitter.

I bought this because my Keypad on my Power chair wouldn't power up unless using 2 thumbs in a rocking motion. Anyway found coating on back worn. They wanted 45 bucks for the powerup/horn button pad. The first time I did what it said cleaned with acetone and alcohol and applied. Worked for a while then came off and got on circuit bd. I even let it set overnight to dry. Ended up taking medium grit sand paper and sanding rubber to get coarse enough for this stuff to stick applied let set overnight and it has been a month now and button is pushed at least 20 times a day and still working great. I did have to stir it up in the tub (approx. size of carmex container which will do at least 50 - 100 buttons) because it was thin on top and gooey on the bottom. My suggestion is ruff rubber with sandpaper and you won't have a problem

Update: been 3 months still working great.

Several buttons on my gyration tv/computer remote control stopped working. I initially cleaned the contacts with alcohol but that didn't make a difference. Based on some research, I theorized that the rubber contacts may have lost their conductivity due to overuse, Then I read how some people fixed this problem with very expensive copper conductive paint. Then I found "Keypad Fix" on Amazon at much more reasonable price.

Here's how I fixed my GYR3101US gyration remote. When this remote control is opened up, there is a circuit board and the rubber buttons that touch the circuit board. I brushed 3 thin coats of "Keypad Fix" (allowing the recommended time to dry between coats) on the rubber contacts that weren't working. I let it dry overnight. The next day, the remote was working like new. It's 2 months later and it is still working great.

What's so great about this gyration remote control? You only really benefit if you have your computer connected to your TV (watch Hulu, TED, You Tube, Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, MLB.com, or any other web content). I also use my computer as a DVR. Back to the remote. You can control your computer's mouse with this remote. You can also use it to control your TV, bluray player and home theater. Unfortunately, they don't make this expensive gyration remote anymore and the exact same model costs more now used on e-bay than when I bought it new .

Keypad Fix to the rescue. I'd like to thank American Science & Surplus for creating such a useful product that will allow me to use my remote control long in to the future.
