If you are fortunate enough to have a TV repair shop left in your area, they will have a simple device that will detect whether or not an IR remote is sending out any coded information at all. 
Unfortunately, because there are no standards in the coding schemes used, that tester cannot tell you if a specific remote will work with your set; the term 'universal' smells like a reason for a law suit, they should be called 'multi-brand' since I also have several, including 'learning' remotes that refuse to learn from Ilo or Olevia remotes.
The testers once cost ~ $30 US but checking eBay, I found one for $10:
IR Remote tester
It could be that the receiving end in the set, the IR receiver or its associated decoding circuitry has failed. 
The overall reliability of the sets (particularly flat panel) built within the past 5 years has really plummeted; there seems to be no company that is not impacted from this decline in quality. Part of the problem lays in the components (especially capacitors)  and these are all coming from China.

What kind of device can be used to inprove my tv #2 remote.got a new tv (hd tv) noe tv #2 remote wont work threw wall & doors real good anymore.what kind of device can i use?dish book said something...


Hello! Dan Busa here with Dish Network customer support. There isn't much in the way of any additional devices you can purchase. The best thing to do is to check the silver remote antennae on the receiver, if it's standing straight up you probably need to reprogram the remote.

Track lighting remote control similar to that of ceiling fan?


Yes, but the remote operates on the switch that turns the lights on and off. Lutron has this kind of technology and it is really cool. I have it all over my house and I don't even have to go room by room turning lights off; I just push a button from my bedroom. Along with a single remote that can be used with each switch in your house, you can program a house remote that controls the lights and ambiance of every room.

Sylvvania 27" tv will not respond to universal remote....


it seems that there is problem with the remote receiver circuit of your tv since your remote is working alright with the other tv. inspect for possible cold solder on that circuit or failing component, but if you are not inlined with kind of job, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!

Constant channel box on screen


There should be a button on the remote called display and this should turn off the channel display. If it dosent then have the remote checked and make sure its working in that function. A universalo remote wont work as well in most cases. Good Luck
