Question about Toshiba WC-FM2 Remote Control
I have the same problem. On occasions in the past, the remote simply quit working. Then, a few days later, it would work just fine (I didn't watch a lot of TV in those days). I've only had the entire system a year, but I don't know what to do. It won't turn on or turn off the TV, I can't change channels or adjust the volume--nothing.
Try cleaning the infrared LED on the PC board. I had the same problem (10 year old Toshiba). LED was cloudy with dust- also clean inside the TV where the light comes trhough. Works fine now

Check the battery contacts for any oxydation, if there is any, scrub it off with a knife or a piece of sandpaper.
Next thing, check if there are any wires from the battery compartment to the circuit board and see if they are ok, resolder if broken.
If the battery contact tabs are soldered directly to the circuit board, check the solder connections and resolder if necessary.
Also check the IR LED (infrared light emmiting diode) on the front of the remote, see if the solder contacts are ok, if not, resolder (some remotes i've repaired had broken solder contacts on the emitter LED so check it out well).
Check any other components that are soldered on the circuit board for bad solder contacts and resolder if necessary.
Just in case, cleaning the rubber pads and the circuit board with some ethyl alcohol might do some good (let it dry thoroughly before reassembling it).
Hope you can get it working...

If the buttons used to work then yeah it sounds like a hardware issue. You can go ahead and take the remote apart, but I don't think you will be able to fix it, unless you are good at soldering. Cleaning the contacts alone won't help. This same thing happened to the most used buttons on my Harmony One, and I just assigned the commands to the screen, so I could continue using the remote without those buttons.
If you want to try assigning the buttons to the screen, the steps in this article by Logitech will help:
I hope this helps.
