Not sure why my remote won't work any more. Had the tv since May 2008 and my remote and tv worked just fine. Now, we noticed a probles when we played a DVD (which we have done since purchase) and the remote just stopped functioning.
I wanted to try to troubleshoot before buying a new one. I have changed to fresh batteries and the backlight works but not the buttons on the remote.
There is a very strong chance that something foreign has gotten into the touch membrane for your remote control or the link from the touch pad to the circuit board. If it is still under warranty, get it replaced. If it is not under warranty a new universal remote may be on your next shopping list. Repairs to OEM remote controls cost more than a new one.

U are setting up a universal remote?Yes,tv should be on,second push the search button on the remote,should be flashing and enter all those codes provided by the manual one by one the LED light of the remote should be solid red as the codes enter one by one the red light and go off and pushing the on/ff button on the universal remote for each codes as u got the wright codes the tv will turn itself off.
Now,u plug in the tv u get a solid red standby power red LED light in the front of the LCD panel right?When u push the power button on the remote u hear a clicking sound?Only one clicking sound,not the power supply board problems.It the Tuner board problems.But u can make sure it the power board problems or not.By taking the tv aparts check the power board,that board where the a/c power cord goes into it.Look all around the power supply board check for these leakage capacitors,they alway bulges up it top or puff up it top.No bad leakage capacitors,then it not the power supply board problems.
Hi, It could be either remote is bad or remote sensor located at tv front is not working. You can test remote with help of any digital camera, watch remote front through camera and press few buttons on remote, you will see infra red led blinking at remote front, that means remote is good and working. Remote sensor in tv is defective and need to be replaced by qualified tech. If infra red led of remote does not blink pressing any button while watching through digital camera then problem is remote, buy new one to solve the issue. Thanks.
