Ok I just dealt with the Sharp customer support for this problem.
1) You need to unplug the TV for 1 full minute and remove the batteries from your remote aswell (this will reset the system)
2) Hold the power button on the remote for 30 seconds with the batteries still out of the remote and the TV still unplugged
3) After the 30 seconds replace batteries then press every button on the remote beginning with the power button in order from left to right and top to bottom (same way you read)
4) Then plug your tv back in and try the remote again.... and the remote and TV should be back in sync.

It depends. If this is a remote for a satellite receiver, you may need to resynch the remote (see your manual - I know the Dish instructions).
If this is a TV only remote, you might try opening it and cleaning the contacts with an can of compressed air, electronic contact cleaner and a clean pencil eraser. However, recent remotes are like keyboards (membrane contacts) and this doesn't always work. In that case consider a universal remote to replace the bad one or look to see if remotes.com has a duplicate of your remote.
I hope this helps.
(for Dish, it is turn on the TV and the receiver, hit the Sys Info button on the receiver, then hit record on the remote. Then hit Select on the remote.)

For this you have remove the outer cover of the remote and wash the top portion of the remote(PCB board)with any volatile liquid like spirit,petrol.

Check the remote first for its infrared emission. If it is OK, the infrared sensor inside your tV is faulty. It should be replaced with same type and number. It can be located just behind the infrared window at the front panel of your Tv. You ahve to open your TV ot access it. It will have three solder terminals, and will look somehat brownish black in colour. Will look like this.
