I've had my remote for several years woth no problems. All the sudden, it is like there is just no signal leaving the remote. Everything on the screen is responding like it's supposed to, even the little ican that shows it's putting a signal out. It's like the bulb is just not working, but that doesn't seem likely to me, I could be wrong. What would you suggest?

The remote control should be checked for its infrared emission. If you wish to get more details, visit this site. Pull up older posts there. One among it has detail description about how to check and repair or clean a remote control. Check the site with patience. I'm sure that you will get all details you wants to know.
Since your remote is responding, you may want to check if it is producing an IR signal. To do this, take a picture of the remote when someone else presses a button. (Have the other person point the remote at the camera lens. With a digital camera (cell phone or other camera), if the remote is producing an IR signal, the resulting picture will show a flare of light.) Taking pictures of several different button presses may indicate which functions are compromised. You can try resetting the codes for the different devices the remote controls.
Unfortunately, you may need to replace your remote with a new one. I've never had much luck cleaning the contacts after they were damaged.
In the future, if you spill water on the remote, first remove the batteries. Then dry the bulk of the water off of the unit. To finish drying the water from the contacts inside, fill a bowl or other container large enough to hold the remote with some uncooked rice. Place your remote (with the battery compartment open) into the rice and leave it there; then cover the bowl. You can rotate the remote in the rice at intervals but leave it in the rice for several days. (The drying process can take a week.) Do not replace the batteries until the remote is completely dry.
Alternatively, get one of the cell phone drying bags and use that to dry the remote. It will still take several days to get all of the moisture out of the unit.
I hope this helps.

1) clean the contacts batteries, with cleaner contacts 2) tight the spring contacts with pliers for better contacts 3) resolder the wires connector from contacts batteries 4) open the remote c, and clean the keypads with contacts cleaner God bless you
from "sceptical Glenn". I had the same problem & saw solutions so thought why not!!!.unplugged box, removed batteries,waited 10 mins.Held down "ON" button for a good minuet.Pressed all buttons from top left to right all the way down"like reading a book" even the ones under the slidey bit.Replaced batteries pressed buttons again in the same sequence,plugged the box back in pointed remote at box held "ON" button down for another minuet, then crossed my fingers.Pressed a button and it worked,"Wheay" success it worked it worked.Never again will anybody call me sceptical Glenn again.Thanks for the solution I am now a happy remote control using person once again, never having to leave my settee again only for a beer,or the loo or food,but that can also be rectified as I sit near the window...the pizza man can pass it through to me.
Testing remote control: The remote control puts out IR (InfraRed) signal that human eyes cannot see, to find out if the remote is sending out the signal or not you just point the remote at the digital camera's Lens (Digital Camera can detect IR), you should see flashing light on the camera's screen when any one of the remote button is pushed. If you do see the flashing on the camera, then the problem is in the BVDT IR receiver or the main logic board; more troubleshooting with scope will be needed to look at the signals. www.remotes.com
For the love of god, do NOT listen to Paul Sager - HDMI is *always* better than component. HDMI is a pure digital signal, offering the cleanest possible signal you can offer an HDTV. Component wiring is analog, and while good, it is by no means as good as HDMI.
You must 'reset' the remote. I've had it happen quite a few times. 1. Turn off power to fan. Then back on. 2. Using remote cycle the following fan buttons from high to med to low, then from low to med to high again. That 'should' fix the problem.
