even the gold finger print one is on the low-grade side.
Born to think, destine to succeed.
Still working on the garbage can of remotes (I do these in my spare time) and found one that's 6"wide and 11" long. Bigest remote I've ever seen.
I have come across some nice tv remotes, really good board inside. If the remote has some weight to it chances are it's good, although a few "cheapies" have turned out nice.
finished braking down all those remotes that I had. All low grade boards, about 10 IC chips and a lot of plastic.
The remote controls I have disassembled yielded anywhere between five to ten screws, nearly always a low grade board, between two and four batteries, the rubbery sheet with the buttons, et cetera. You will not find anything really worth scrapping, although I do take them apart when things slow down. I like to keep the screws and batteries and toss them in their respective bins - you can never have too many spare parts running around your shop.
I forgot, theres a gold wire in the IR LED....
I found a $1 bill folded up inside a tv remote one time.. Don't know how or why it was there.

I've found that you can make more money reselling functioning tv remotes than you can scrapping them specially the remotes from higher quality televisions. some do have gold contact and some will have gold bonding around a single IC but most dont. Recently stumbled upon a hoard of several thousand remotes that I picked up from a former cable employee. I was reluctant to go get them at first but then he showed me a sample of the remotes he scrapped himself and next thing you know it I'm the new owner of the remote control hoard.
agree with above. I have a high end Denon receiver I bought that is pretty much useless without the remote. the remotes for them sell online for double what I paid for the receiver!!

I have a guy who buys them from me by the ream-paper box. All of them, even the crappy ones with battery crud, inside. He says it's like a treasure hunt.
