With this camera you need to activate the power save mode or the remote will not operate.
To activate it do the following
1) Press menu set and then press the left arrow on the navigation thumbpad
2) Use the Down arrow to navigate to the Setup Menu (Spanner/Wrench Icon) then press the right arrow
3) Navigate to Power Save with the Up/Down arrows
3) Select it and then select 1, 2, 5 or 10 minutes, Confirm selection by pressing right arrow.
4) Powersave is now activated. Exit menu by pressing menu set
Note: When a time is set for power save, the camera automatically turns off if you do not operate it within the set time.
Try your remote shutter and see if it operates now.

There is one complication with IR remotes. You have to point the remote directly at the transmitter's sensor to make it work. It is normal for the LED on the transmitter to remain off. It will turn on only when it senses an incoming IR signal. Also verify that you have installed t correctly and locked it in position. Refer to page 120 of the manual below to cross check. Its actually for a wired remote shutter but the procedure should be same. Only difference being there is that it will have a IR receiver instead of a wire.
If you have done everything correctly and still cannot get it to work, then I would agree with the others that shutter controller is faulty.
Hope this helps,
