CD-i member Adr990 posted some useful information about a common problem with your wireless CD-i remote stick. The connection with the batteries on the CD-i Remote might not connect so well anymore, and so it looks like it doesn't work anymore. You can't confirm this until you tried this a few times, till you're sure the tin foil is placed correctly. At least, Adr990 is using tin foil to fix it easily. You should try it when your CD-I Remote doesn't work anymore. Open the Battery cover, make sure you have new batteries, pull the double battery deeper inside like shown below, so a little space will be there:
(Better contacts at the battery in the back, and now also in the front. That's the idea.) Now test it. And if it doesn't work try to put the foil otherwise or grab a another piece of tin foil. Besides, the tin foil should be a little fat. So it will close up the space you just made as the picture above shows. Not just sitting there lose. Also make sure its not to width or has to much height. Do it right, carefully watch if it touches the contacts or not ,as it should of course. Not working yet? Try again, may clean the contacts also. And of course, recharge/try new batteries for confirmation. And look closely to the pictures!
