I had this same problem with the Onkyo TX-SR706 this evening, and finally found the solution in the "Controlling Other Components" section of the manual: Resetting the remote control did the trick. (P.S. This problem started after I spent many hours today trying to get my new Acer laptop equipped with a Hauppauge TV tuner stick to correctly display its image on my Samsung HDTV, with sound. I tried connecting the laptop via HDMI first to the Onkyo receiver and then directly to the TV, neither of which worked as it should. I assume that somehow, in all those hours of much plugging and unplugging and fiddling around, I screwed up the remote sensor -- thank goodness I eventually found the "Resetting the Remote Controller" solution a little while ago -- I was approaching the point of ripping everything apart and throwing it out the window!)

behind the wall control there are 4 AA batteries that need to be replaced. you have to remove the wall control plate with a screwdriver and the batteries are tucked into the wall behind the wall switch.
ps - my husband is an electrician and he wired the fireplace but forgot that there were batteries behind there! it was me who asked for the screwdriver. ha!!

SOURCE: receiver was beeping all the
If you changed the batteries in the receiver (the black box in the fireplace). You should also change the 2-batteries in the hand-held remote. This may sound stupid, but it's not ... be sure all the batteries in the receiver (black box) are all facing the proper direction. Believe me, it's easy to get one turned the wrong direction. Also, make sure that the slide switch is in fact in the remote position. It can be finicky at times. Also, check to make sure that the two wires are still connected firmly at the gas fireplace Control Valve and in the receiver.
is in the ON or OFF position. Program the remote receiver to LEARN a new security code by pushing in the LEARN button on the top of the
remote receiver and then pressing the MODE button on the transmitter. A change in the beeping pattern, at the receiver, indicates the
transmitter's code has been programmed into the receiver.
There's a lot to check out and do, but that's how you trouble shoot these remotes.

Apparently, the receiver on one fireplace is faulty. If this a plug-in wall type receiver, unplug it from the wall, wait 5 minutes and plug it back in. That 5 minutes may have given it time to reset itself. If you see any scorch, burn marks or melted plastic on the receiver box, it will have to be replaced. Contact Dimplex USA, Technical Service Dept at 888-346-7539.
Hope this "remotely" helps to solve your problem.
