You should put new batteries in the remote. If that does not solve the problem get a new remote. Many people like the universal remotes available at radio shack or walmart.

Tivax STB-T9 DTV converter - remote control audio buttons no longer controlling TV audio

Maybe the remote got dropped by the cleaners. If you could control volume with the remote previously and now can't, I suspect the remote needs to be replaced.

Remote control not communicating with recorder unit

The remote is the problem, the pads are well worn. But you may be able to restore device by taking it apart, remove batteries and screws if any. Most remotes are clipped together, take a flat head screwdriver and wedge between the 2 halfs, push and slowly twist until clips give, some will break while you are working them apart. Remove rubber pad and soak in wam soapy water overnight and wash, clean printed circuit board with rubbing alcohol several times removing pad marks, and allow 1 hour to dry and assemble remote. This may work, long shot.
