Question about Televison & Video
The buttons on the side work(volume,channel,etc) but the remote does not. The remote has been checked. It works.
If the standby light is ON at the front panel; when you power ON the set, and if the remote control is found OK too; the remote control sensor inside the TV is defective. Before doing anything, try by reset the set once.
There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight; will be better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option.

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.

You may not have set the remot to TV with its set up code. If you have did it, and still there is no response by the TV to remote control, the remote sensor inside the tV is faulty. This is a three terminal component, can be located behind the remote sensor window at it front panel. you have to open the TV to access this component. Will look brownish black in color, and can be easly replaced. The component can be bought from most of the elctronic spare part selling shops at your town. The images of some types are given here.
