    you might try to power cyce the device. Unplug from the AC mains for like 10 minutes or so. Does the unit have a power button on the FRONT panel ? if so press that for 20 or 30 seconds while it is unplugged. after 10 min plug bakc in and see if it will power up? You need to tell use more information if you want help. Like when you say its not working what do you mean ? like the remote not turning it on? more details

    Also check the connections in the battery holder. if th eold batteries LEAKED at all it could be corroded. if so clean with some baking soda and water mixed thick. then use an emery board or sandbpaper to clean up the contacts.

    If the remote is a standard infra red one, you can easily check if it is the remote or the player. Open the camera app in your phone, look at the sender end and press a button. The camera can see infra red while the eye can't, so if it is working you'll see the sender in the remote flashing while a button is pressed.
