Topic tags/keywords: dust collection remote

I have a jet 2hp remote dust collector. When I first got it I could activate it from any where in the shop? Now Ihave to get right on top of it to make it work. I have tried new batteries made no difference. Has any one else ever experienced this? And what was the fix?

Have you made any recent lighting changes to the shop? Added flourescents or starting using the flourescent replacements for the old incandescent light bulbs? The jet remotes utilize infrared which has found to be problematic under flourescent lighting.
