You can test it by viewing your remote through a digital camera (or a camera on a mobile phone). Point the front of the remote at the camera lens while watching on the camera view screen. If the LED on the remote is showing as glowing white, then it is active.
That's a great tip with the camera! Thanks, Ger Roe. In fact when I do as you suggest it is actually not stuck on. When I do press a key (only) I can see the two IR thingies lighting up.
I'm no expert but I guessing that some resister or capacitor or what-have-you has failed.
Targa have said the other day thay are going to send me a new one, which when/if I get it would be first rate service IMHO.
CelticFC, that one you posted is quite different looking. But if my replacement does not show up from Targa I'd risk a tenner on it
