    it could also mean the sensor on your machine is damaged, answer is simple take your remote into a BOSE SUPPLIER store and just try to turn on similar device.......if it will not go on its your remote, if not its obviously the ir sensor in your equipment!!!....OUCH!!

Hello sir, my hitachi ac's model name (HITACHI SAC 1.5 ZUNOH 3200f RAU318AWD) it's remote botton is not responding. I have changed it's battary but still remote is not responding on pressing botton.

I see the remote is a wireless one. It may need to be "paired" with the A.C. This is often done by holding down a button on the remote whilst powering up the controlled device.
You'll need to check your manual or contact Hitachi to be certain.

You will need to readdress the remote to the receiver. I have provided a linkwith instructions on how to readdress the remote to the receiver. Select yourreceiver type and this will open a PDF document with the instructions. If thisdoesn't resolve the issue, you may need a new remote. I hope this helps.
