Default First Post - problem with remote control

Hi all, I have a Sportster + boombox. It did not originally come with a remote. I bought a remote from ebay but the remote will not work with my radio. Does anyone know why? or what I can do to make it work?

THANKS!

Is it the correct remote control? Can you post a picture of it? Do you have the original sportster, the sportster replay, or sportster 3 or 4? I'm sure someone could tell you if you have the correct remote control. After that, have you changed the battery in the remote control?

The remote will only work in the boombox, not in the car or home dock.

Yes, I think that is the problem. You have the Sportster Replay remote, which isn't compatible with the original Sportster (with the amber or green backlight).

erik, if you still are looking to buy a sportster remote, there are some for sale in the Exchange forum.
