WANTED: Remote control for 1969 RCA 2000

It's a long shot, but figured it never hurts to ask. Hopefully one turns up in good shape

RCA consolidated the ultrasonic remotes for early stuff - the CTC40/CTC44/CTC47 chassis sets eventually had just one of two remotes - a simple one (two rocker switches and the on/off button) available (reconditioned) up into the 1990s, and the deluxe (all remote functions, 4 or 5 rocker switches plus side on/off button) which became unavailable after 1984/85ish - that's the coveted one, and the one needed if you want to control all.

RCA refused to make new ones, and simply refurbished the ones in population. At one time, you couldn't buy a deluxe remote without surrendering the old, broken one. Dud price in 1984 (the last time I was aware of the price) was nearly $30, and the exchange price was nearly $30 as well.

Those "padded puff boxes" (named as they were padded leatherette, and youngsters with good hearing could hear a "puff" sound as the keys were depressed) still show up on Fleabay occasionally - RCA 143XXX was the parts series for the consolidated stuff.

They did the same later for the early IR remotes for ColorTrak - either a two or 4 button remote was available, but originals became hens teeth.

EDIT: No guarantee, but this remote may work - it was originally a Mural TV (hotel/motel) remote, but should have the same ultrasonic frequencies.....no affiliation, and someone else has 6 NOS ones....

Padded puff box, albeit unpodded, and for a BW set:

Is this the one you're talking about?

Similar - Accumatic is an XL100 feature, not available on the CTC40/47.

http://www.americanradiohistory.com/...22accumatic%22

One of the servicing magazines has a picture of the actual CTC47 remote. I'm looking.....whoever has the service info could give up the CRK number...

I've got the exact remote you pictured, in hopes that my early XL100 is out there waiting to be found.....

BTW, those use an AA battery (1134 RCA), and the CTC40/47 used a mercury battery, IIRC.

Pretty much the same remote as the early XL100s, sans the Accumatic rocker. The UHF up/down rocker is the unique feature to the RCA 2000.

These things were refurbish-only (no new stock from RCA), so rare indeed.

I do have a memory module (hermetic sealed MOS memory module) for an RCA 2000 - once I was told what I had, I saved it.

This issue of Electronic Servicing has my PortaColor model on the cover - knew I'd seen it, so I dug around in the garage a bit - it's cold.....in the 40s!

It's one of two I have. I have a whole bunch of the less-common remotes waiting to be matched with their sets, some NOS.

Very close on that battery, it's a 1334. I saw a post somewhere about it being a carbon-zinc AA. I tried this one on an old cable converter box that responds to a whole bunch of frequencies but it did next to nothing. The other one is untested.

RCA 1300 series were alkaline - good catch on the typo.
