    Projector Remotes

    So like most people I imagine, our teachers keep losing the remotes for their projectors.

    Hitachi do a good 'teacher remote' just a little one with on/off and other basic things on it - but I can only find replacements at Hills for about £20 something.

    I need some remotes for NEC projectors as well though - does anyone know if any remote will do as long as it's the correct brand? Any idea where I can get one? This particular projector is a NP216G.

    Thanks.

    Oh yes I recognise "the remote has gone missing" game.

    It soon stops when I tell them I will not replace them, its a departmental responsibility and Im quite willing to do the order form which will be billed to them.

    For a genuine loss I do sometime have a few spares in from old projectors that have been withdrawn, but they dont need to know that

    Thanks Oaktech - I will try there.

    Nibriu - we also charge them but will order on their behalf - but I don't want anyone to be ripped off - I mean £60 for a remote? That's scandalous!

    We got genuine Epson ones for £5 from misco. Search results for epson remote - Misco.co.uk
    I guess it depends on the model.

    Wallis UK - Specialist distributor of Remote Controls, Replacements and LCD/Plasma TV supports. have always been able to supply working compatibles for mine, considerably cheaper than the originals and in the case of the Sanyo ones I've replaced, they actually work better.

    We have two InFocus X20 projectors, which have a great design of only having the controls on the remote! The only button on the projector is the power button. As one remote was 'misplaced' we have to use the one for both of them now. Considering the original cost of the projector (not much) and the cost of a replacement remote, we just keep it as a spare for emergencies.

    With some projectors (such as the above) some places seem to say they have replacements that work and others say you cannot get replacements for them!

    not directly related to the remote replacements, But have you thought about tethering them to somewhere in the room so they can't go walking?

    I've seen something similar to these (Curly Cord Security Tether FOR Remote Controls X 10 Bungee Tether | eBay) used before.

    Thank you everyone - managed to locate on at Wallis - so particular thanks to @AngryTechnician
    A bit cheaper than at NEC - plus NEC said they only take credit card payments which we are unable to do.

    The Wallis website is out of date (I called and was told this) and, although not listed on their website, the remote I need was in stock. So fab!
