Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2010 40 in. LCD Television
You can check if it is the remote itself by using a digital camera or cell phone camera. Point the remote control towards the lens of the camera like you are taking a picture of what is being transmitted. Start pressing buttons on the remote, if you see a blinking light on the LCD screen of the camera, then the remote is transmitting correctly. If not, replace the batteries in the remote. If this does not fix it, you need a new remote.
If the Remote is transmitting properly, then it is either the IR sensor inside the TV or the main board. There is no easy way to check this without taking the TV apart. This can only be checked by the verifying the voltages along the line, you would need a technician to work on it unless if you have a voltmeter, the service manual and an basic understanding of how circuits work.
