You have 3 options. You can connect the fan blue and the fan black to the red ceiling wire. Then you will need to control the fan and light with the strings. The wall switch will turn off everything. Option 2 is make sure that there is a switch wired to the black ceiling wire. If there is a switch I would check to make sure the switch is working. Option 3 is to purchase a remote control unit for both and leave the wall switch to shutoff the whole unit. Hope this helps.
Under normal wiring conditions, the black is "power in" to the box. If you have a double switch in the room, it could control the black wire for "power in" to the box and another switch that controls "power in" on the red wire as well. This could have been set up so that one wire controlled a fan and the other wire controlled a light set on the fan. Again, controlled by two switches in the room, most likely in the same wall box.
The tiny dip switches are used to set the code for a remote control unit. The dip switches are set the same on the fan and the controller. If you are going to control the fan from a wall switch it should not make a difference as to how the switches are set.

mcdevito75 here, Generally the Ceiling fan motor is hooked up by-passing the wall switch but still to the hot laed going to the wall switch whlie the lights are hooked up to the hot lead after the wall switch, So without the remote, Manually operate your fan and lights. First with the wall switch off the fan should work and the lights no work. Now turn the fan off with the pull chain on the fan shroud close to the ceiling. Now turn wall switch on and lights should work with wall switch and the fan should also work. if so, re-program the remote or change the batteries or even re--place the remote.
Three suggestions (maybe not viable solutions): 1. Consider creating ceiling fan "groups". A group is a set of fans that is controlled by one remote.
Group: All (or some) in all vaulted ceilings.
Group: All hallways
Group: Outdoor celing fans 2.
Power OFF ceiling fans at the wall switch that are not used often. Those can have duplicate codes. 3.
If the remote controls are iR (infrared) rather than RF (Radio frequency), then the ceiling fans that are farthest apart or have more solid walls in between, can have the same codes and not be affected by the "wrong" remote.
I just recently purchased a hunter ceiling fan w/light and remote. Had it installed and wall switch would not work, only remote. I contacted Hunter company directly about this problem and I was told that they redesigned their fans with remotes so that only the remote works for turning off power to fan. The person who made that made that BRILLIANT change should be fired. So to those of you who own a newer hunter an product with a remote ne your wall switch will not work tat s te reason why.
Unless you want to use pull chains, you will either have to get a different fan with a remote, or you can buy a remote to ADD to an existing fan/light. It hooks up under the base of the lamp. They seem to work better than the factory fans with the built in remotes.
I had this same problem (sort of) - my daughter lost the remote to our fan and it would not work from the wall switch. What you have to do is go up to where your fan is connected to the ceiling, slide the canopy down, and remove the remote transmitter. Then just rewire the fan normally - white to white, black and blue to black, and the ground wires together. Turn on the power and your fan light should work with the wall switch. You will have to pull the cord for the fan to work.
