Hi - I had the same question and found it here:
Some TV brands have multiple codes associated to it. You must try each one individually until one of them does the job.
This worked for me beautifully on a brand spanking new Philips 42'' LCD.

One thing you can do is take your cellphone's camera, point the remote at the camera, and press a button. You should be able to see the infrared sensor firing.
If you can verify that, your remote's fine.
In this case, what you have is a bad IR sensor board. The part # is:
313926859182. Right now, there are so many of these things failing, that finding the original might be difficult.
Don't fear, though; it's a small part. And, best of all, it's cheap. Expect to pay around $5.00 for the part, maybe a bit more, maybe less, depending on the supplier.
Now, if you are handy with a power drill (fitted with an octagon/star bit for the back of your set), you can remove the 20 or so star-bit screws from the back of your television. Don't worry about putting the set on the floor. If your TV is on a stand, simply turn it around. You'll need to remove the stand screws, but you won't need to take the TV off of the stand.
Now that you've taken the screws out and removed the back cover, look in the lower left hand area of your set. You'll see a 4 inch long circuit board with 2 cables running to it. Pull the cables out (they'll come out easy). Remove the 2 star-bit screws.
One of the board's sides is under a plastic tab. Lift the board out of its slot from the other side.
Put your new board in, reconnect the two cables, reassemble the back and you are set to go.
Expensive repair for a few bucks and a better IR sensor.
This advice assumes that the control buttons (power, volume, channel) located on the side of the set still function. It also assumes you are able to use those buttons to power on the set and verify that you still have a picture on the screen.

Not sure if yours is the same but Philips codes work with Skyworth and if you hit the TV/AV button on the side of the TV and the table of options should come up. And then with the channel +or- go up and down till you are on HDM1 or where ever you want and then touch the TV/AV again when you are there.

SOURCE: Philips 47PFL3603D LCD TV -
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.
