Re: "no connection" on screen and remote only turns the unit on and off

What model number is written on the device?  If it's a stick with a USB cable with a "bump" in the cable you must use that cable and they are known to go bad.  That would explain both the "No connection" message and the non-working remote.  As a first thing to try, remove the cables and reconnect them.
