The volume control pot can be replaced.
Any good quality audio shop or electronics repair shop should be able to fix this.

Run 2 RCA cables from the two Purple connections on your Receiver (Labled "PRE OUT SUBWOOFER") to the Red and White connectors on the back of your Sub (it does not matter which Purple connecter you plug into either the Red and White)
Set the volume control on the Sub to about 75%, and keep the power switch in the "ON AUTO" position. To set the Low Pass value, look at the back of one of the front speakers in your setup, and note its frequency range (will look something like 100Hz - 17kHz). Set the Low Pass at a value slightly higher than the low value on the back of your surround speakers.
To set the phase switch, stand in the middle of the room with some music on (something with some bass, but not over the top bass) and have someone switch between 0 Deg and 180 Deg. Listen for which setting sounds "Louder and Fuller". This is the one you want. You will need to do this each time you move the Sub, as its position may change its phase in relation to the rest of your system.

Is this NEW? Or did it just fail spontaneously after working for awhile? It describes a way to possibly fix your remote or at least prove it works or doesn't. Find new or replacement remotes: or eBay: search for "(model) remotes", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.
Is this just a remote control issue or is the sub dead, too?
From the manual...
No sound coming from subwoofer.
If hookup is "SUB OUT" to LFE, check and make sure your receiver is set to Subwoofer=YES. If hookup is via speaker wire, check that the polarity of the wires is correct.
Subwoofer has no power.
Is the AC MAIN switch on? Check outlet; check fuse after unplugging the subwoofer. The fuse is located under the power cord
receptacle. Fuse type and rating is found on the back panel.
Remote control doesn't work.
Remove the plastic tab to activate the remote control's battery or try replacing the battery. Ensure the IR sensor is not blocked.
If it's a new problem with a previously working remote...
