Hampton Bay light bulb and remote

I moved into a new place a few months ago and there are 2 Hampton Bay ceiling fans. One of the lghtbulbs went out today.  I bought a Philips Halogen T4 bulb and it fits just fine. However, the remote no longer works.  Is there a specific bulb brand that it needs to be?  I don't know the model number of the fan but it has  dome with wall remote (no pull chains). I tried to unsuccessfully to upload a picture.  I'm happy to try to find the model number if someone can tell me where to look.

Did you replace the battery in the remote?

Sorry, I should have mentioned that the remote is fine-blue light is on.  If no other suggestions I'll try that

Some people don't realize those wall remotes can have a battery in them.

So you replaced the bulb and suddenly the fan stops working?  The bulb's wattage matches the specs for the fan?  The brand shouldn't matter at all.  What happens if you take the bulb out?  Does the other fan use the same bulb?  Have you tried switching them?  You can always call Hampton Bay too.
