...anyone know how to take it apart, had an 'attempt' yesterday, but I seem to have mashed the sides up a bit.

If I can't repair, anyone know the cheapest place to get a new one? It's the standard type (not Sky + )

Thanks all

Rep to all sensible replies!

If you need to open a sky remote:

1. Remove the battery compartment and batteries.
2. Remove screw.
3. Remove the infra-red cover at the top of the remote (turn the remote upside -down and apply pressure away from the remote).
4. Remove screw.

The two halves should separate with little effort. :)

The volume gave up on mine so I reengaged the sky handset with the TV using

Not as difficult as it looks

I've taken apart a fair few Sky Remotes due to spillages. Cleaning them is easy once you get them open.

SERIOUSLY:

Put all the parts into a bowl of hot soapy water (yes, including the main PCB!)
Use a toothbrush (or nailbrush) to give everything a good scrub.
Dry with paper towel first off, then use a hairdryer on all the parts to remove all moisture. Spend about 5 minutes on the PCB itself to ensure all moisture is completely evaporated.
Reassemble and enjoy ;)

I did forget one thing tho - to separate you slide the two halves in opposite directions - this releases the tabs :thumbsup:
