First, be sure you did not change one of the dip switches in the hand held unit while changing batteries. You would have to see if the switches in the hand held unit match the switch positions in the fan receiver.
This is one of the many sites you can go to for remotes:
Hampton Bay fans are sold exclusively by Home Depot. I would check on line or stop by one of their stores to see if you can pick up a HB remote. Once you get a new remote you have to again make sure the dip switches are in the same position. Paul

Hi, First you need to check the housing mounted to the ceiling as the transmitter is there. Next you have to try and match it to a new remote or look for some number on the transmitter. However you can usually buy a new remote and transmitter for 30 bucks and just swap out the transmitter. This will be helpful in case you cannot match the numbers. They come labelled and r pretty easy to install. Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query. Thanks for contacting fixya.com

General Installation Instructions for most fans:
I assume you've removed the blades. so next step is to check the canopy. The Ceiling Fan canopy has a decorative ring RIGHT against the ceiling that covers some screws. Remove the ring, remove the screws, the fan will come down. You don't have to mess with the motor assembly.
To Install Fan on a different location, you may follow the general instructions below that apply to your model.
1. Some pieces of the fan require assembly before hanging. Attach the blades to the blade brackets. In the case of a downrod fan, slip the canopy over the downrod and attach the downrod to the fan. In the case of a close mount (not hugger) fan, attach the canopy directly to the motor. In some cases you may want to attach the light fitter (should one apply) to the motor before assembly, in other cases it will be easier to attach once the fan is on the ceiling. Some fans also require the switch housing be plugged in and attached. In any case, at this point the fan should consist of 3 or 4 types of pieces: the motor assembly, the mounting bracket, the blades, and, if applicable, the light attachments.
2. Attach the mounting bracket to the fan brace and/or ceiling outlet box.
3. Hang the motor assembly from the mounting bracket. In some cases this will be via a small hook, in other cases the ball on the end of the downrod will fit directly in the bracket. Be sure the groove in the ball lines up with the tab in the bracket and/or canopy.
4. Connect the wires. Refer to the Ceiling Fan Wiring Guide for more information.
5. Attach the canopy to the mounting bracket. In the case of some fans this may be 2 thumbscrews on the bottom, others may have as many as four screws on the side. In close-mount fans and some downrod fans the canopy is load bearing, in other cases it is purely decorative. In downrod fans be sure the ball is (still) lined up with the tab in the bracket/canopy. If the canopy has a decorative ring to cover the screws, attach that.
5a. For hugger fans, attach the motor to the mounting bracket, in most cases with four locknuts (some fans may vary). Attach the motor housing cover to the mounting bracket (usually with four screws).
6. Attach the blades to the motor via the blade brackets. Each blade bracket uses two screws which fit directly to the motor or the flywheel.
7. Attach the light fitter, if applicable and if it has not already been attached. Attach the glass to the light kit, and any other decorative accessories the fan may include.
Mount a ceiling box in the location you will install your fan if it is a new installation. For replacing an existing fan, you can use the box already there after removing the old fan.
