Question about Televison & Video
Just about all handheld remotes have a carbon pad under the button that makes contact with the bare "traces" on the printed circuit board within the remote. Over time, the use and handling of these remotes gets the carbon pads remarkably dirty from the oils on our hands so the remotes are either difficult, unreliable or quit altogether. Simple solution is to take the remote apart and clean with plain rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. Remove the batteries, and look for screws that hold the two pieces together. Manufacturers like to hide screws under labels so remember to look there. In today's world alot of things just snap together and are easy to unsnap once you get started. If this is the case, use a small flat screwdriver to begin prying the top and bottom halves apart, be patient and try not to break the clips, once you get one to pop, work your way around the remote until it separates. Remove the rubber button pad and turn it over to see the carbon pads, inspect the circuit board and note where the carbon pads touch the bare traces, if these look gummy and oily this is probably your problem. Use the alcohol and q-tips to clean all the carbon pads and traces, alcohol won't harm anything so use it to your hearts content. Dry with a soft lint free type cloth and re-assemble, install the batteries, and test the remote.

The remote-controlled fans that I've seen all have DIP switches in the transmitter (the "remote") and receiver (up by the fan). For the remote to operate the fan, both sets of switches have to be set to the same code. If you happened to bump the DIP switches (and change the code) while replacing the battery, the fan would no longer respond to the remote.
It's been four months since you posted this problem, so you've probably figured that out by now. Still, other users may run into the same problem occasionally.

Either the bulb is blown or the connection under the wire nut is loose. First check the bulb then turn off the power at the panel and check each wire nut by unscrewing it and making sure that the wires are tightly twisted together before reinstalling the wire nut.
