There is a fault with the remote control and it is not worth trying to fix it and not worth replacing the stock remote control unit even if the manufacturer could still supply one for that TV.
The best option is to just buy a very basic generic remote control (quite inexpensive) from an electronics store which will work with many TVs and use that remote to turn the TV on and off. Use your stock remote for all other functions if it is still working well on those functions.
I had a friend with the exact same problem with her stock remote a while back. I purchased a simple generic remote control on special for around $20 which she now uses to turn the TV on and off. .
Turn on the electronic device
for which you'll be using your remote control. You will have to do this
manually by pressing the "On/Off" button on the device.
Locate either the "Code Search" or "Setup" button on your remote control. Which one you have will depend on the remote control.
Hold that button for anywhere
between five and 10 seconds. The light on your remote should then turn
on. Depending on your remote, the light will either blink or remain on
after you release the button.
Press the corresponding button on your remote for your device that you are programming. In other words, if you want to program your remote to your television, you would press the "TV" button.
Use the numbers on your remote
to enter the three- or four-digit code for that particular device. The
codes for your remote control will be found in the manual. Don't worry
if you have lost the manual. You can find codes for practically every
remote control on the market on the Internet. Visit the website of the
manufacturer of the electronic device (TV, DVD player, among others) or
log onto the "UniversalRemote
Control Codes" website. Once you have entered the code using the
remote, you should notice that the light on your remote has turned off.
Point your remote towards the
device and attempt to turn the device off. If you can do so, you have
programmed your remote correctly.
Programming Without Remote Control Codes
Repeat Steps 1 through 4 found in Section 1.
Begin pressing the "Up" channel
button found on your remote. You will probably have to do this a few
hundred times (or anywhere between five and 10 minutes). Once the
channel changes, your remote will be programmed. Turn the device on and
off using your remote to finish programming.
Use the "Power" button if the
channel button did not program your remote control. Again, you will
probably have to press the "Power" button a few hundred times. Once the
device that you are programming your remote to has turned off, you will
know that you have programmed the remote control correctly.
Yes, but the remote operates on the switch that turns the lights on and off. Lutron has this kind of technology and it is really cool. I have it all over my house and I don't even have to go room by room turning lights off; I just push a button from my bedroom. Along with a single remote that can be used with each switch in your house, you can program a house remote that controls the lights and ambiance of every room.
On the TV-use your finger to adjust the volume level, about midway, then use the remote to shut off the tv, then turn on tv with remote. Volume level should be better! If still not loud enough...using your finger on the tv...turn up volume & repeat remote steps.
From GUEST: I found this solution in the manual and will perform this task again to see if I can get the tv will be re-recognized again. Give this a try, too.
Remote will not turn on or shut off the TV.
• You must program the converter box remote in order to control your TV power button.
• To program the remote control:
Determine if the TV is a model that can be controlled by the remote control. See "Controllable TV brands" on page 17 in the manual.
Turn on the TV.
While you press and hold TV POWER on the remote control, press CH ^ or CH v one or more times until the TV turns off. Each time you press one of these buttons, the remote control sends a manufacturer code (between 1 and 45) to the TV.
