Have you tried fresh batteries? try that first , if not successful , get a digital camera and point your remote control at the lens while the camera is on, if you see a white blinking light then the remote is fine , if you see nothing buy a new remote control .. it can be a problem with the infared amp inside the dvd player if all else fails.

Well i solved the problem by replacing the onboard dvd drive (regular IDE connection) with my PC's DVD drive (asus, can't remember the model). Worked like a charm,burns every single dvd i put in it, DL included remote control works flawlessly, perfect. To make it permanent i cut a hole in the lid to pass the ide/power cable through and used velcro tape to hold the drive in place, it's odd looking but works perfectly.
SET 1 on the console; press and hold the ENTER button down and while holding Enter; press and hold "1" button for about ten seconds together. Your remote and console should be in sync again and try cutting off the dvd recorder with the remote and it should work.
