Question about Panasonic VIERA Televison & Video
Tv not reliably responding to either of 2 working remotes. may well be a faulty IR receiver
Yes, call local Panasonic service center and see if they will sell IR board to you or look for pulls off Ebay per your model.

My LG TV stopped responding to the remote. A very helpful repair technician told me to stick a head phone jack in the sensor jack on the back of the TV a few times to clean out the contacts. Now the remote control works fine.

If you still have the remote that came with the television set you can try to perform a remote reset. If that works than the remote that came with the television as well as the two universal ones should work. I am posting one form of remote reset but the customer service reps at Philips might have a different one that works well on their televisions. There are some variations. Some support representatives will have you press each button on the remote twice:
You have to unplug the television after turning it off. Take the batteries out of the remote control. Point the remote toward the remote sensor (bottom right hand corner of the television set). Press the power button on the remote control and hold it down for 30 full seconds. Next press and release every button on the remote control. Next plug the tv back in and power it on from the power button on the television itself. Replace the batteries. Adjust the volume using the remote control. If that works the problem is solved. If it doesn't work you may need a software update, a new remote control, or repair to the sensor on your television.
To see if your remote control is working look at it through the viewscreen of a digital camera. The digital camera must be turned on and ready to take a picture. Next press a channel button on the remote control. Do you see a bluish white light? If so the remote control is ok.
