What codes? There are 4 dip switches (see DIP switch wikipedia) inside the remote control and 4 inside the sensor that is inside the fan. They have to be in the same position. If you don't feel like messing with the one inside the fan, keep changing the ones inside the remote. U= Up, D = Down
U-U-U-U, U-U-U-D, U-U-D-U, U-D-U-U, D-U-U-U, U-U-D-D, U-D-U-D, ... D-D-D-D (*There are 16 possible arrangements*) On e of these arrangements will work (has to work) if the remote components are not damaged.

First of all start with the basics, Hampton remotes will only work with Hampton fans. If you have a different brand of fan then you need to get the complete remote kit with receiver unit. If you open up your remote, you will see a place you can select a code configuration. This should be set identical to the code configuration of the fan. You may have to take off the cover of the fan to see the code. Or keep changing the code configuration in the remote, until it starts working.
So you have Hampton Bay fans and universal remotes? If so, then either the remotes are not programmed correctly or the receivers are not wired for the remotes. That is one bad thing about using universal remotes.
I suggest you go to Home Depot and buy one Hampton Bay remote, bring it home, turn of the breaker to the fans, and get on a ladder to get to the receiver. Check the dip switches, and program the switches on the remote exactly the same way.
(While you're at it, make sure the universals dip switches are set exactly the same.)
If the switch is "OFF" on the wall, the remote will not control anything. The power has to reach the receiver first. If it worked before you turrned the swich off, than one of two things. Either
A: You blew a circuit to the unit or
B: Your receiver went out.
First thing I would do is check that POWER is getting to the receiver.
