My TV has stopped responding to the remote control (and the universal remote) and the front panel buttons don't work
I know the remote control is functioning (it controls other components), but the TV does not respond to it. Also, the buttons (all, except for the Power button) on the front panel will not work and allow me to change the TV inputs so that i can play a video game or watch a DVD.
Bottom line, TV works, but only to watch TV and will not respond to remote.

Have you find out if the problem is with your remote control? For instance, you are able to control your TV using a Universal remote control. My 32" Vizio TV had a similar problem, initially thought it was related to my remote control but in fact the TV didn't respond either to an universal remote control of my SAT receiver that I eventually use to just turn on and off the TV. I've found out that the problem was with a little board on the TV located at the left down corner viewed from the front side of the TV and that receives the signal from the remote control. I found the board on ebay for about $5, replace it and the TV responded again to both original and universal remotes.
tried with reset doesn't work, ok it could be the IR sensor at the front panel of the tv doesn't work. but before you replace it you need to ensure if your remote controller is working. have you tried to check the remote with camera trick just to know if the remote controller is sending light to the IR sensor of the tv.
To confirm if the remote control has been working fine, point directly the infrared emitter to your cellphone camera, while pressing any button key at the remote control, you will see the flash of an infrared indicating that the remote control has been working. Click this LINK for more info.
Let me know if you see the infrared flashing.
people say that you have to tap on the receiver near the remote sensor. I don't know exactly where that is though since these are RF (radio frequency) not IR remotes, so there isn't a sensor panel in the front. I'd just tap along the front edge with the handle of a screwdriver or something. People say it works a treat.
1.Turn all of your devices off, and then manually turn on the device you want to program. 2.Press the Setup button on your the universal remote and continue to hold it down until the indicator light stops flashing and remains solid. 3.Release the Setup button 4.Press the TV button. 5.Release it immediately and make sure the indicator light is illuminated. 6.Enter the first possible four-digit code on the universal remote, and then press another button on the remote to see if the device is now programmed, such as the volume control or power button. 7.If the device responds, you have successfully programmed your Philips universal remote. 8.If not, turn the device off and back on and follow the steps again using the next code on the list. Repeat until the device successfully responds.

Each time you press the button, the Philips universal remote tries a new code. 7.When the code works, press the Mute button on the Philips universal remote and the code will be stored.

there is a easier way to check your remote. Open your radio on AM frequencies, you don't need to be tuned just noise is perfect, then bring your remote near the antenna and press some button. You will ear the frequency in your radio. If it works this way but not on the TV make sure to press the TV button before using it (if the remote is universal).
The set may have defaulted to a front panel lockout. To defeat that on the front of the set hold down the MENU button for 15 seconds and see if it will then power up. I know that doesn't solve the problem with the remote but one step atta time. These sets are prone to leaky switches on the control panel and when that happens the micro cannot accept two different commands at the same time. That could be why the remote is not working.
