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

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!

insert wide flat blade (such as a wide flat bladed screw driver) into seam along one side. Twist carefully until seam starts to prise apart - carry on until you hear the "crack" of the press-tabs coming apart and repeat along the the length of the seam until you can carefully pull it apart.
