The IR sensor is in fact a "plug in device" .
The TV will have to be disassembled to replace the sensor.
You should make sure the remote is functioning before you do anything as drastic as taking your tv apart.
I am sure you have tried fresh batteries so the next step would be to hold down any button on the remote, the led light should have a faint pulse, it may be hard to see and you may have to go in a dark room but the led will pulse if the remote is good.
If you have a universal remote, program it for your tv and test functionality.
An RCA universal remote will work with your tv, if the codes don't work do a search with the remote.
If you decide to replace the sensor you should be able to find one at http://www.shopjimmy.com or http://partstore.com.
Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
Please rate this solution, the only compensation I receive is a good rating from you.

IR senor may not be bad. Try using a different remote (universal) and program to TV. If universal remote works and your doesn't, you may need to purchase a remote instead of IR board. If you confirmed that the IR board is bad then replacing the IR board will fix the remote issue. IR board is an easy fix. Just open the back cover out and it's located right in the middle toward the bottom of the TV.

My problem turned out to be a mother board that operates the IR remote sensor & the LG recommended repairman's estimate was over $500.00 with the part cost of $378.10. I spoke twice to LG's customer service and since the TV was over 1 year since purchased,(however not even 2) they offered nothing. One can now see why Best Buy sells their separate insurance policys, because over 1 year from the manufacturer there is no responsibility by them unless the failures reach gigantic proportions like they had in 1997 & 2003/2004. Buyer Beware

Believe it or not...THIS WORKS!!!!
Look on the back of your set for an external remote jack. It should be the same size as a small headphone jack. If it has one, use a spare headphone plug or your headphones, and plug them in and out about 50 times. This will clean the tarnished contacts and make your remote sensor start working. Your remote sensor goes through a switch on this jack.
