I need a new remote control for a tt 1620 recorder player

did you check the battery compartment for damage, dislocation or any visual oxidation of the contacts?
I've had the problem myself with oxidated contacts. After cleaning and adjusting the contacts, the remote worked fine again ;)
To check if the contacts are located good, just test if your batteries make good contact and are sitting tight between the contacts.
To clean the contacts, if necesarry, take a swap, dipped in cleaning alcohol or nail polish remover and clean the contact surface. Acetone works fine as well, just don't use any other cleaning fluids, because they may make the problem worse.
If the the contacts are seriously oxidated, you can scratch the worst off, with toothpick or a match. Metal objects may scratcj to hard.
Good luck :)
