The DCS hand held remote has not been used for around two years. Tried to power up, pressing the on/off button, and nothing happened. Replaced the four batteries and tried again. Zip. Nothing shows on the screen. The MTH dealer near us is no longer from what I can tell so no help there.
On my remote, one of the.. terminals? - (the ends the battery touches) is oddly recessed. I had to put a pad inside my back cover to push the battery in place. To check this, keep the back off, push all the batteries in place and try. You should also be able to spot 1 or more of the tabs as oddly out of line, if this is the case.
My batteries come loose in mine too. I cut a thick cardstock business card to fit between the cover and the batteries. I have used it that way for years since.
