    I've just got a Sony MC40ELK remote control off ebay but it had no instructions with it.
    Although all the functionality works it does not display anything on the remote LCD display. Does this come on automatically when the player is playing or do I have to do something to switch the display on?

    I'm using it with a Sony NW-HD3, if that helps.

    I'm sorry to be the bringer of bad news but...it should work straight out of the box without any problems. So unfortunately it sounds like you might have got a broken one. I'd suggest contacting the seller and see if they will offer you a refund/replacement.

    They have been reports of the occasional remote being sold on ebay which have been wired incorrectly, like bad repair jobs, but that is just speculation for the reason on my part.

    Apologies again for the less than positive news.

    b4 you send it back try the old standard of licking the pins, give them a **gentle**rub with your fingers then give the hd-3 socket a good hard blow (no jokes please...) insert the connector and give it a **gentle** waggle in the socket

    Only takes a bit of dirt in the socket on one of the pins to muck it up.

    it could of course be faulty, but its worth checking these things...
