Question about Televison & Video
I just replaced the remote that came with it (brand new remote same model #) but it still doesn't work. Batteries are new as well. I've only had the TV for a little over a year. Other people have had the same issue with the original remote malfunctioning but the replacement works perfect for them. Please assist. THANKS!

Testing remote control:
The remote control puts out IR (InfraRed) signal that human eyes cannot see, to find out if the remote is sending out the signal or not you just point the remote at the digital camera’s Lens (Digital Camera can detect IR), you should see flashing light on the camera’s screen when any one of the remote button is pushed. If you do see the flashing on the camera, then the problem is in the TV IR receiver or the main logic board; more troubleshooting with scope will be needed to look at the signals.

There could be many reasons like IR pins not soldered properly, it is not getting +B supply or IR output signal is blocked, buffer transistor on same board is bad etc etc
Replacement IR Board is available for $6 at Encompass.com so I would suggest to replace complete board instead of IR Sensor.
Hope these info will help you.

If new batteries did not fix the problem, then it means the problem is either from the remote or the TV.
You need to do some diagnosis to confirm the source of the problem.
Remote: Check the remote battery terminal, see if its not rust. Also, disassemble the remote, can check the connection between the terminal and the remote board, see if there is no disconnection of any kind.
If after checking and all seems well, then it means the remote is defective. To confirm, borrow a remote, test it with the TV. If it works, then it means you need to replace your remote. But if the remote you borrowed does not work, then it means the problem is from the TV and not the remote.
TV: There is a sensor in the TV that communicates with the remote. If this sensor is defective, the remote won't communicate with the TV.
The TV sensor might have loosed contact from inside of the TV or it maybe defective and need to be replaced.
So do the above troubleshooting and let me know if the problem is from the TV or remote. If problem is from the remote, you need to do a replacement. But if otherwise, let me knows as well.

SOURCE: T.V. remote sensor not working
If you are sure that the fault is with the remote sensor of your TV, replace it with a new one. The remote sensor can be located just behind the remote sensor window at the front panel of the TV. You nave to open the TV to access it. It is a three solder terminal component. It will look somewhat like this, having brownish black in colour. This component can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shopw at your town; very cheap to buy too. OK
