Question Yamaha RX-V4 remote control not working

Nov 22, 2022
Just received my Yamaha RX-V4 (Brand New) yesterday. Hooked it up today and the controller is not working.

No light when I push any button. Tried the batteries that came with it, and 4 new batteries from my house and still nothing.

I'm assuming it's just a lemon out of the box but just in case I thought I'd ask before assuming. Maybe I'm missing something.

Thanks in advance for the help!
