weak IR signal on DS converter remote ?

Hi there,

I recently borrowed a ds converter. I'm having trouble with the IR signal strength. The remote won't work until i'm in the range of 2 to 3 feet from the DS converter box. I'm thinking, it must be weak IR signal or brightness. Can you please suggest me ways to fix it. 

Thanks in advance,

Clean the emitter led carefully and the DS receiver input device.

Thanks iceng, Cleaned the LED and the receiver input device, still the problem persists. Anything else I should try?
Put fresh batteries in it. If it already has fresh batteries than return the system and get a new one.
