Question about Minka (RC588TW) Remote Control
THE LIGHT BUTTON DOES NOT WORK ON THE REMOTE. ALL OTHER BUTTONS WORK. HOW CAN I FIX THE LIGHT BUTTON, OR GET A NEW REMOTE? THE NUMBER ON THE BAK OF THE REMOTE IS CHQ8BT7053T.
I had the same problem with two remotes. Replacements are either hard to find or very expensive, so with nothing to lose I opened it up. There's a circuit board inside, and the rubber buttons are all connected together in one grid or mat. Each button has a corresponding copper square on the circuit board. I immediately saw that the square for the light dimmer button had a dark smudge, presumably from the rubber button.
The smudge was easily cleaned with a q-tip and denatured alcohol. Put it back together, and the button works!
Note, there are two screws that hold the remote housing together, but just one was visible on my unit. The other is below the sticker (with the FCC info). I was able to access the screw by simply pressing the screwdriver through the sticker.

I had the same problem. open the remote (two screws) one under the label. I used a pencil eraser to clean contact on left side of computer board. Then took the buttons out and spun them around. screwed it back together and it works fine.
