Remote . . . what?!

Hello good people
I have 96 C220. The remote key with the infrared beem has quit on me. Simply, nothing happens. As the owner manual claims holding the button for one second should make the little red light come on but it doesn't. I also tried reseting everything but no luck. New batteries tested as well. So I can only assume that the remote key is dead. Now the dealer wants something like couple of hundred for this piece of crap that only opens the car if you 7 meters or closer to the car. I looked up e bay and there are some used remotes available but how can I be sure I'll be able to reprogram it. Anybody writing with any experience or knowledge and tricks about this would be really appreciated.
