My universal remote died.
I wanted to start setting my VCRs (plural!) last night, but it refused to cooperate. Apparently I've worn it out after three and a half years — there are fresh(-ish) batteries in it, but mashing the buttons repeatedly at varying pressures and angles did not produce the desired results.
This is the second one I've worn out. I went to order a new one on Amazon, but they don't make that model anymore. I'm so bummed.
