Yesterday, while ordering some parts to make a JP1 cable from mouser I noticed that they had EEPROMS. I am upgrading a 6131 and I ordered a Catalyst part - CAT24WC02J-1.8. This is a 2kB (256x8) serial SOIC EEProm. Did I order the correct part?

Also,
Getting the 6131 open was kind of a bear and in the process I broke a couple of the little plastic lips on the bottom half of the remote. These are the lips that the hooks from the top half engage. It seems like the remote should still be plenty strong when I reassemble it. What has been your experience? Should I apply a little glue to the hooks to assure that the remote is solid?

Thanks for your assistance
Greg


Note for the Robman - Thanks for the reply to my PM. I had placed my mouser order prior to seeing your response.

That's the wrong part for most UEI remotes. I'm fairly sure it's wrong for the 6131.

When we say "2K" we mean 2K BYTES. When you buy a 2K, it's normally 2K bits. You need 16K bits for 2K BYTES.

You are right - I did order the wrong part. I was even aware of the bits vs Bytes - I just placed the order too late at night.

Thanks
Greg

Here's a guide to opening the remote without killing it:

Personally, I just slide a credit card in around the edge to pop them open.

If you still have all the pieces you can probably do an acceptable job using "superglue". Model or Hobby shops have it and also sell an accelerator to speed up curing. You can also get it from Home Depot with Loctite brand. HD doesn't sell accelerator for it. I have used the thick "filling" formula that Loctite sells in a little plastic bottle that looks like fingernail polish bottle. I use a hair dryer to speed curing of this.

Watch out and don't get the glue on your hands or eyes. It will glue skin.

You can probably get by without doing any of this, but consider this if you think repair is necessary.
