Hello gingerbread,

Thank you for your question and welcome to the community!

Without seeing the exact remote control configuration, I can't make any proper troubleshooting tips without getting more information from you first.

The black wire coming from your ceiling fan is typically what gives power to the fan motor. The red (or blue usually) is done for the light kit. 

There should be an extra hot, or another wire that powers up the fan and lights separate on the receiver for your remote.

If you can, give us more information on the fan, remote, as well as any additional information that you may find useful.

Keep us updated,
