Regency fan remote control issue

My Regency fan works fine with the wall control but I’m having remote control problems. The remote control will turn the fan off, on and control all three speeds as long as the light is OFF. However if you turn the light on first, you have to be within a foot of the fan itself to operate any other function, including turning the light back off. It’s like when the light is on it’s creating a ‘force field" that the remote signal can’t penetrate. The fan is only a year old and it’s been like this since day one. I purchased a new "universal" remote thinking the one that came with the fan was bad but had the same results. Any suggestions?
