MS8 Android remote

Hi everyone,
I have a MS8 Android tv box and my remote all of a sudden stopped working. Is there any trouble shooting I can do or any other ideas on how i can fix this.
Thank You, ukrainetrain87
Found the original remote finally after batteries and remote but now after hard reset my box is frozen when try to add add ons and browser is not able to connect and go to play store it brings up wifi screen. I'm probably gonna throw it off the balcony into the pool and try again.
