Hi there,The remote control cannot be reset;however if the batteries are good, and other buttons on the remote control are working (e.g. volume) then the Power/Standby button may be worn out or the contacts under it may need cleaned - try disassembling the remote and cleaning the electronic contacts under the power button by rubbing with alcohol.Let me know if that works..

Ok, what is the model number on the remote that you are using?

Have ordered replacement as the remote is a sealed unit cannot gain access
Expert:  Pete replied 2 years ago.
Ok, you can either replace the remote, or you could check for some hidden screws and clips on your existing remote to see if can be opened somehow.
Best,
Pete.

Hi Paul,
No, you only pay once, and you can ask as many followup questions as you need.
Did you clean thoroughly under the affected buttons?
If that didn't work, then the remote may be faulty.
