Reusing Remote Controls

I have several remote controls that I no longer use. Can they be recycled or reprogrammed so they can be used for a different TV or electronic appliance?

Yes, some remotes can be reused. You just need to know the code to the brand name of the TV. That can be found in the users manual.

You could try selling them on ebay. They can bring quite a bit of money. I actually lost a remote to a our TV and went searching for one on the web. I found one for 11 bucks and a few weeks later found the old one and ebayed the newer one. It went for $30!
