What does is mean when the remote power light flashes multiple times? I can't find anywhere that mentions this. It is that the battery needs changing?
That means that the batteries are weak or just not connecting properly. It could also be an issue with the remote itself but that's much less likely.
I find that if you take the batteries out and exchange the two in their spots, it can get the remote working back in working order again. If you still get the flashing, swap them out for new batteries.
Give it a try and let us know if your remote keeps lighting up.
Thanks, it was the batteries. Changed them and no more flashing.
