14 Channel MCD remote

The "UP" button on our large MCD remote has decided to part company with the rest of it, so I'm on the lookout for a replacement.
Called MCD, and all they offer for my shades now, is a slimline 15 channel remote, which would be fine, except they only offer it in white ??????
The new remotes for the 17 and up are black, so why this one is white, I have no idea.
Anyway, has anyone upgraded to the new remote, and want to sell their old one, or know of anyplace that could repair it ?
I know the new one will work just fine, but it's a décor thing ( with the DW)...they sell a black surround to take the place of the old remote, but the remote is white...................what were they thinking ?????

We got the new slim remote when MCD replaced all our shades in early 2018 (bad motors). The confiscated our old remote and gave us the new black one. I seem to recall them saying the new shade electronics required the new (black) slimline remote and they would not work with the old remote.

It could be that the slim white one is what you need to work with older shade electronics.
