DVD/VCR remote control Can't Post

The remote control (00061J) for my Samsung DVD/VCR deck no longer works. No IR came out of the control when I looked at it with a video camera which does detect the infra-red unlike my eye. I do detect IR from the dedicated Samsung TV remote control. I got an IR diode from Jameco Electronics as Radio Shack no longer is here locally. It was somewhat smaller but at the same frequency. Holding it with Leatherman needle nose pliers (to make a heat sink), I soldered it into the board but still no IR is detected by the video camera so I will declare the circuit board officially dead. Replacement remotes.com does not have a replacement. Is there a universal remote available which will do the job? I can't set the VCR clock and worse yet have no control over DVDs - they start playing but I can't see the chapters. Unsure

Check the crystal. Bad solder and/or broken lead.
