The remote may need corrective therapy to restore operation. If the light does not turn on when a button is pressed, suspect batteries need to be replaced but the problem could be a stuck button. Remove the batteries and press all buttons to "unstick" them, then install new batteries and test operation.
Erratic light/fan selection can be due to power interruptions. If you disconnect power at the source and wait a few minutes before reconnecting, light/fan control may be restored.
I have a ceiling fan that fails to operate under remote control whenever a power outage occurs. The solution is to pull the chain to guess which is an ON position, then operate the remote to select fan speed or off. Same routine for the light, if there is one.
If you press and hold the light button, it will step up in brightness to max then back down to dark. Then when you press the button briefly it will turn off and then press button briefly again it will turn on at the intensity you had it at last. So if you are one tick from off you may not notice it is "on" because it is dark. A second possibility is that you replaced the bulbs with a compact flourescent and they are not always happy with adjustable brightness, often they will be on or off, no middle ground. I recommend sticking with old school bulbs in the fan.
Ceiling fans with wireless remote controls have an electronic receiver installed in the fan, which controls the light, dimming, and fan speed. Sometimes the receiver goes bad and needs to be replaced. If you have had any power outages or power surges, they may have fried the receiver. I've noticed that my ceiling fan light turns on when the power is restored after a power outage. Now, whenever my power goes out, I shut off the light switch that powers my ceiling fan so It doesn't experience a surge to to the controller when the power comes back on. I've purchased new receivers on eBay and Amazon to replace my blown remotes and receivers.
