Did you install the batteries correctly?
Some remotes (Universal) need to be re-programed when you install new batteries.

Usually this means the conductive contact on the back of the rubber pad has worn down and cannot connect the circuits on the remote controls main board. There are several ways to fix this.
#1 Find some conductive adhesive or paint and carefully paint the back of the button tab ( let dry completely)
#2 Rear window defogger kits are available at most reputable auto parts shops and contain a paintable adhesive which you can apply to the back of the remote control button.
#3 try super gluing a small piece of aluminum foil to the back of the button tab.
I have used all 3 and they all work good.

I had open a Sony RM-GA010 because the transmitting bulb was stucked inside after a fall. The two screws inside the battery compartment was not really holding the case together. I used two flat screwdrivers working on the side of the remote control; one levered open a bit and the other slipped in further and levered more to split it open. I think a blunt knife may also do the job; but never a sharp one because it will be too dangerous. You need to accept some permanent depression at the edge of the control (better than a useless remote). Once you open some part, it become much more easy. After opening the outer case, you can access the buttons, but not he transmitting bulb in my case. I need to loosen two additional screws (i.e. totally four, including the two inside the battery compartment) to loosen the electronic board a bit and I could correct the bended transmitting bulb. Then put everything back, clicked up the case and the remote worked again!

I had the same problem with sony remot control RM-ED002, take remot control apart and clean inside with damp cloth and dry with kitchen towel, thats it now use it! ;-)
When i opened mine it was some kind of moisture under volume and channel buttons, cleaning and drying it helped.
