You may need a new IR sensor for your TV.

Re: Remote suddenly desn't work

You may have accidentally pressed one of the wrong button at the bottom of the remote control. the codes are in the back of the user manual

VW37L 37 in. LCD HDTV input button wont work

Have you find out if the problem is with your remote control? For instance, you are able to control your TV using a Universal remote control. My 32" Vizio TV had a similar problem, initially thought it was related to my remote control but in fact the TV didn't respond either to an universal remote control of my SAT receiver that I eventually use to just turn on and off the TV. I've found out that the problem was with a little board on the TV located at the left down corner viewed from the front side of the TV and that receives the signal from the remote control. I found the board on ebay for about $5, replace it and the TV responded again to both original and universal remotes.

Protron lcd tv installing a universal remote but no where to turn on tv. old remote has gone out

It is preferred to have the TV on when programming a remote,but usually not necessary.If you enter the programming codes in the remote,it should be able to turn on the TV if the code is correct.(The remote puts out the same command to turn the TV on or off).

My remote control for my polaroid tv wont change channels up and down.

The first thing to try is to change out the batteries on the remote. If that doesn't work you could buy a universal remote and program it to work with your TV. If you have a cable box you can probably program that remote to work with your TV.

Universal remote

Universal remotes never work good anyway. You will need the original remote anyway to work the different functions for the TV.

The cheapest that I can find one for you is at, it's $32.95

Remote control programming- Directv

if you have gone through all of the programming codes; you will just have to use the remote that came with the TV set. there is no way to program more codes into the remote, due to its list of codes it was made with can not be updated. i hope this helps
