Short range on a RC vehicle

RC toy car (a remote-controlled Tyco Stunt Psycho
) has very short range. Is there any way to troubleshoot the problem?

The range on this toy is supposed to be 65 feet -- but after a short time (perhaps related to taking a tumble down the stairs?), its range appears to be more like 6 feet. It works fine within that range, doesn't respond at all if the remote control is outside that range.
Any idea where the problem might be? Putting fresh batteries into the vehicle and the remote control doesn't fix the problem.
