Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

Lets try a quick test of the factory remote. Take the remote into a dim/dark room, and look at the infrared emitter at the front edge of the remote, as viewed through the DISPLAY (not the viewfinder) of a digital camera. A cell phone cam, web cam, security camera, etc will also work. Each time you press a button on the remote, you should see the emitter at the front light up, flash, or glow slightly. If you do, then the remote is functional. If you do not, then the remote is bad and would need to be replaced.

Let me know and I'll advise on options from there.

The red button o the left goes on red when pressing any button but the hand controller isn't turning anything on. Batteries have been renewed.
It happened suddenly. I think we have had the machine with good service for 5 years but suddenly it won't work. IS there a server in Perth who could service both the recorder and the hand control?

I'm not worried so much about the red light on top, that can work even if the internals do not, so that is why we really need to complete the specific test I mentioned.

A bad remote can be replaced. The main unit cannot be serviced economically, it would cost more to fix than to buy a new one.

That is why the test is necessary so we can address the proper issue.
