Just noticed that my television is not responding to the universal remote although the remote has a set of fresh batteries. This remote worked well with the tv before. I tried the original remote for the tv which is new and no response is received. Kindly advise.
Check whether the remote control is working properly or not by using remote checker. Even if it is the universal remote control you have to set the code for the particular model. Otherwise it will not work.

Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ You here reports that even the new remote too does nor responds. Which remote did you bought? An original one or a universal remote? If it is an original one, and even your set do not respond it, the infra-red sensor inside the TV is faulty. Replace it. Contact any service technician. If it is a universal remote control; you have to set it up with the set-up codes said to Philips brand TV [The setup code list will accompany with package of each universal remote control], to work with it.
Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. One among it has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/
I guess the first thing I'd have to say would be to replace the batteries on the remote and see if that helps at all.
If it's the remote that comes with a cable box, try the remote that came with the TV when you bought it.
I would narrow it down to being either the TV that's the problem, or the remote. Borrow a friend's remote, and program it to work with your Television.
Perhaps a site such as the following will help http://www.ehow.com/how_8446_program-sony-universal.html
What is the exact model of your TV?
you can get the code automatically by pressing set button the remote then after keep pressing the volume key while you observe the tv for response once you notice any response press the set button again.now its ok.
Are you using a remote from a cable issued cablebox or the orginal remote? I noticed my cable company DVR remote stopped working when the OPC setting on the Picture menu of the TV was set to the 'ON' position. Once turned to the 'OFF' position it stopped the OPC feature from activating which seemed to interfere with the response of the remote for some reason.
I ASSUME IT'S JUST THE REMOTE YOU'RE SPEAKING OF- FIRST, IF YOU HAVE A DIGITAL CAMERA, OR CAMERA PHONE, AIM IT AT THE INFRA-RED LED'S ON THE FRONT OF THE REMOTE, AND PRESS BUTTONS [LIKE POWER OR CHANNEL] - THE CCD'S USED IN DIGITAL CAMERAS ARE VERY SENSITIVE TO IR, AND YOU SHOULD SEE A WHITE LIGHT [IMAGE] OF THE LED'S, EITHER STEADY, MOMENTARALLY, OR PULSING. IF THE REMOTE HAS BEEN DROPPED, THERE IS A CCHANCE THE CRYSTAL CONTROLLING THE FREQUENCY HAS BEEN DAMAGED. TRY A UNIVERSAL REMOTE, ALTHOUGH OFTEN YOU MAY LOOSE SOME FUNCTIONS, OR THE BUTTONS REACT DIFFERENTLY THAN LABELED. SELDOMLY, BUT IT DOES HAPPEN, THE IR RECEIVER SECTION OF THE SET ITSELF CAN FAIL. THE IR RECEIVER [LOOKS LIKE A DARK LED] CAN FAIL, AND THEY'RE COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE AT RADIO SHACK
#1. Original remote may have something spilled in it or may have dirty battery contacts.
First check battery contacts and make sure it's not corroded. Clean with small brush and baking soda. Let dry thouroughly and replace with fresh batteries.
If this isn't the problem or you tried this, then move on.
Next, Get these materials. A cloth, 50% amonia and 50% water sulution two small blad pocket knife and a philips head screwdriver.
Some remotes will have screws holding remote covers and internal board and others do not. If your remote have screws, remove them all. If not, then start prying your remote apart with your pocket knives. Do so very carefully as not to damage anything inside.
Next, lay down remote button facing down, and remove circuit board. Now, take note of rubber button pad(s) position(s) and remove them. Place these pads in your water - amonia solution.
Clean all cntacts and rubber pads, and remote housing. Now before reassembling remote, look at the IR lamp at end of board. Look underside and notice solder joints. Wriggle lamp and see if solder joints move. If so, have this resoldered. Now reassemble remote and give this a try.
#2) Codes may have not been entered right with your new universal remote. Go through all codes again just to be sure.
#3) IR receiver in set maybe damaged or not receiving power to it or the microproccessor has quit responding to the remote commands. Have a good technician check into it if problem is evident that your set has simply stopped responding to remotes.
Remote problem could arise from either tv or remote. First check your universal remote on some other tv and if it is okay your tv's infrared sensor has stopped working. You can get it from the local component shops, take the existing sensor with you. This problem could be from the micro processor in rare cases. Best of luck.
