I am assuming the design but for single diode LED, one button remote items I have experienced, having either the LED upside down OR the battery's backwards can yield results such as OP mentions.
Check you do not have batteries backward polarity or that the diode isn't backwards.
edit: just caught my stupidity; it is wired, so check pin-out and the diode being reversed polarity. srry....
