Hi Jane,

A stuck button on the recorder may be preventing it from responding to the remote control.

Check for any obvious stuck buttons.

If you cannot find any, then a repair technician will need to check the electronic contacts under each button in case they are sticking on and shorting out, preventing the remote control from working.
