Thanks Mike
Can you remove the power from the recorder and wait 5 minutes.
Then plug the power back in, turn it on and tell me if the remote now functions.
Let me know the results please
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes the remote is now working.- is there an answer to why this happens?

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
The firmware crashed Mike, it can happen with this player.
If it ever happens again, just repeat this procedure. Its not the remote thats at fault it was the player, but it will be ok now.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
