When I first got it I put batteries in it and nothing happened. Then after about 30 minutes the remote's display came on and powered up and worked fine.
Yesterday I accidentally (is there any other way?) dropped it about a foot onto a carpeted floor and the display went out. I gently shook it, nothing. Took the batteries out and put them back in. After about an hour the display came back on.
Then about an hour later I kinda dropped it again (!!!!!!!) and again the display went out. Took batteries out and put back in (thinking I'm rebooting the remote when I do this). Nothing. Came into this office this morning and it's still blank. Did battery thing again, after an hour it's back on again.
For those who have this exact remote:
How long does it take for the display to come on when you reinstall or put new batteries in it?
Do I have a bad, or soon to be bad remote?
