It is possible that the pads are worn out or there is damage on the main board, possible carbon track failure . you might need to reform the tracks or use a remote control repair kit to retrack. Also in some cases the controller IC can be defective as it fails to detect the selected port.

We will presume you do not have two bad remotes---the fact you can operate the set manually with the buttons there suggests a problem with the remote receiver====there is a tiny infrared receiver in the front of the set that receives the signals from the remote and sends them inside the set where the correct action is taken.
Make sure if you see it (usually small black area on frame of set) it is not blocked or dirty.
Failing that you may have a bad receiver for the remote---shop repair.

If remotes have been ruled out the only way to test the remote infrared receiver is with the set apart/ and a schematic measure voltage at the receiver when the remote is used---most of the time since the part is rather small this is just replaced to see if it is or is not the problem; some receivers will fail where if the remote is held very close they work--always the receiver in that case.
