http://www.tvrepairinfo.com/ A TV was brought in my shop for repair because it would not respond to remote control. I figured it was due to the infrared transistor in the TV being bad, but it turned out that volume control switch had become shorted due to water getting under it, and it created a conductive path which disabled many of the other functions from operating, including the remote control. This video shows the process I went through before discovering the fault. Even tho this tactile switch was obviously shorted, there have been occasions where I could not detect the problem using my ohmmeter due to its intermittent nature.
